I know I’m still early in thinking about Christmas. School hasn’t started yet. It’s not even Labor Day! But, it’s hard NOT to think about Christmas given my day job. LOL Halloween is getting set out next week and some plans are already being made for Christmas. Ugh…. 🙂
Having worked with photography in several different ways for the last 11 years (not counting college where I majored in it!) I’ve noticed one major trend for the holidays. Everyone wants family pictures taken and nearly everyone waits until November to start thinking about it. Or at the very earliest, late October. I’m sure a good part of it in our warm, tropical, northern Minnesota area (sarcasm anyone? LOL) it’s rebellion at the thought of the holidays, the snow, and the cold weather. Who wants to think about that while trying to savor the very last of our too short summers? But this is the BEST time for family pictures!!! Summer tans fade way too quickly, and the closer we get to Christmas, the busier everyone becomes!
I’m offering a very simple Christmas and Holiday special this year. With the purchase of an 11×14 or larger wall portrait, you will receive a complimentary digital file of your favorite pose with printing rights. What a great promotion! You can choose to use this image for your Christmas cards to have them printed wherever you need. It’s also a great way to get additional prints to give with Christmas gifts! This offer is good through November 30th.
A couple of deadlines to think about!
Sunday, November 22nd – Last day for Portrait Parties
Monday, November 30th – Christmas Special expires
Tuesday, December 1st – Last day for Sessions for Christmas delivery
Friday, December 11th – Last day to order for Christmas delivery – Standard order
Friday, December 18th – Last day to order for Christmas delivery – Rush order
To rush an order, 50% of the order price is added to the total cost. Example: If you have an order of $100 before tax, 50% of that is $50. Your total with the rush charge would be $150 before tax. This is because my lab also charges a hefty rush charge, and I have found myself working through the small hours of the morning getting orders completed.
I have a new purple background! I’ve had a few requests for it, and was finally able to get one! Yay! Go Vikings! (Too bad they lost last night. 🙁 At least we’re still only preseason.)
Enjoy this last long weekend before the holidays!
