I recently had the privilege of photographing Dan and Michelle, and their awesome niece-dog, Sprocket. After rescheduling their session once before due to weather, we decided to have an indoor session at their apartment last month. This turned out to be one of the most fun, genuine sessions I’ve been a part of. Michelle and Dan made us coffee, and in the middle of the session, we were able to have a little coffee break to chat about who they were and what they were currently experiencing as individuals in life.
It felt like meeting new friends; I felt grateful that they would open up to me and share a little piece of themselves on that rainy weekend morning. I want more of that for my business, and I want more of that for my clients. An idea was born. (read on…)
Well folks, I enjoyed my time with them so much that I got to thinking… What if I offer a few hour-long sessions, a couple of Sundays per month for 2014? Wouldn’t it be cool to go to clients’ houses, sit down with them for coffee and chitchat, and also give them some good, updated portraits of them and their loved ones? Uh, sign me up, please!
Now introducing: Sunday Morning Sessions! Each session is about an hour long, and starts at 10AM on the Sunday morning of your choice. I come to your house in the greater Seattle area, you make us coffee, we chat, and we photograph your fam getting snuggly, just hanging out, etc.. It’s a little snapshot into the coziest morning of the week. Wear your jammies, your bunny slippers, or curl up on the sofa in your favorite blanket. Make it as personal or as casual as you want. Mainly, let’s get a snapshot of you and your loved ones just being you.
What’s included? Each Sunday Morning Session is $350+tax and includes a wood photo box with 10 mounted 4×4″ prints. This keepsake also includes 4 modern easels for easy print display and would look awesome on a desk at work, or at home on a bookshelf or mantle. Digital files may be purchased separately for $20 each or $175 for all. Enlargements and other products may be purchased through your online gallery. Previous clients receive $50 off!
Thanks to Dan, Michelle, and Sprocket for inspiring this idea! To book a session, email your 1st & 2nd date choices to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line SUNDAY MORNING SESSIONS.
P.S. I take a little cream and sugar with my cuppa joe.
