3 Photo Shoots coming up!!

I have one shoot this weekend with 5 teens (girls and boys) who are pretending to be a band for me. This is a free shoot and just for fun. I’m trying to show my versatility to bands so that I may get some bookings from the locals musical groups. I’m actually really looking forward to this one even though its free. I think its going to be alot of fun hanging out with the kids and watching them be goofballs. Also we are doing lots of make-up, crimping hair, coloring hair, etc. Should be a real blast just before Halloween to pretend to be a band!! Oh and how bout this, I’m going to call their “band”: “Faux Fox”. Since everyone mispronounces “faux” (its “foe”, meaning fake) as “fox”, I just thought it would be fun to have my faux band have that name! Teehee!

I was also approached by a teen of one of my husband’s co-workers and close friends of our family. She has two brothers and a sister. She asked me if I would do a shoot of the four of them for their parents for Christmas. She said that she doesnt have the money to pay for the session, but will pay for all the proofs to put in an album for their parents and for the prints. Of course, I said yes! I love this family and think its a great idea for them to give something like that to their parents.

I talked to Luke (my husband) about this and he was very happy with it as well. So happy in fact that he suggested we do it for his other co-worker, who happens to be my hub’s bestfriend and our church pastor, as well. So I will be doing his two sons also for free.

I’m ok with doing these few shoots for free as they will help with my portfolio anyway and they are friends of our family. Plus, I’m going to be making a profit on the prints that they buy, so thats good enough for this one.

I am offering a Holiday Special to families and also an Engagement Couple special right now and have had LOTS of bites on that. Looks like I will be booked up all next month! I just need to solidify dates. Oh and one person asked if they could get a gift certificate using the Holiday Special for their grandparents, which I did agree to and am going to advertise now as well. Seems like folks are most interested in shoots with the fall colors or blooming flowers, so gift certificates seem to be a good idea at this point.

So I’m busy busy busy! Can’t wait to get those photos out to see what you all think!!
