Long time no see!! Some how it is March already and I have seriously been slacking on blogging :( I love keeping you all in the know about what I've been up to and my different shoots and I plan on doing a better job of that this year. I have a ton to catch up on and you may have seen some of it on Facebook by now, but I have a to-do list and I plan on checking off every single thing on it! So here goes the first blog of the year (I told you I was slacking!)...
This year I plan on getting my name out there more than every before. I will be having special deals, promos, and mini sessions throughout the year and I would love it if you would spread the word. Here is a list of what I have planned so far and I would love to get some feed back on what YOU would be interested in seeing offered from Haynes Photography.
If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen that in March I will be traveling down to Texas(!!) to visit one of my close friends. I will be toting my camera gear with me of course and plan on doing some mini sessions in the Lone Star State! So if you or someone you know lives in the Austin/San Marcos area lets get together and have an awesome shoot! I'll be there for a week starting on the 12th :)
As a photographer and mommy I know the importance of taking the time to get IN FRONT of the camera with your kiddos. Too many times we get caught up in their sweetness (or not so sweetness) that we forget that we are a very special part of their lives too! I know that I wish I had more pictures with my mama! So in honor of Mother's Day (May 12th) I will be offering Mommy + Me Minis. It will be an awesome, fun time to spend with your little (or big) ones. I plan on having Sean take some of me and Em too! More details to come.. watch here and Facebook for more info.
Read the above and substitute daddy for mommy ;) Father's Day is June 16th and what better way to commemorate the day than a Daddy + Me Mini session?! More details coming soon, so keep an eye out.
Summer is a great time to get your family portrait done. The nights are long, the weather is reliable (scorching, but reliable none the less LOL!) and the kids are out of school. Besides that I am looking forward to once again recruiting some high school seniors (graduating 2014) to be Haynes Photography's senior rep[resentative]! I had a great time working with 2013 seniors last year and can't wait to do it again; they are so full of life and hope for the future. Plus they are so fun and make my job a breeze. So if you are or know a 2014 high school senior have them check out my Facebook page and find out how to become a Senior Rep.
Your annual Christmas card just wouldn't be the same with the family picture from last year. That is where I come in ;) In November and December I will be offering Holiday Mini sessions again. This is my personal favorite time to do photo shoots because the Autumn colors are so beautiful. I know the time around the holidays is hectic which is why these 30 minute shoots are perfect for getting in and out of those scratching sweaters** in no time flat! I'm excited to meet new families and catch up with the ones from the past. Keep an eye out for the details; time flies when you're having fun and before you know it the leaves will be falling!
Boudoir Marathon. Oo la la. More information to come...
Lastly... I will be starting a new promo that is good EVERY MONTH! I am now offering birthday shoots for 1-18 year olds! All you have to do is contact me and we will set up a FREE 15 minute shoot in your child's birthday month. I hope to watch these kiddos grow through the years and can't wait to meet some new faces!
That's it for now! I'm so excited for what the future holds for Haynes Photography... here's to another great year!!
