Front Porch Sessions for Mothers Day!!

Fellas, there won’t be a flower in a dixie cup or cute little teacher written poem with hand prints coming home in your kids back pack tomorrow!!  You have less than 72 hours til Mothers Day!!

You know what would send her over the moon???  A portrait session!!  Trust me, totally not just saying this because it’s my business but because I have seen the look on wives faces when they come in for a session their significant other bought for them!  Moms  LOVE pictures and they know how badly Dad’s hate them so for you to willingly do this for her = Big Bonus Points!!!

I sell Gift Certificates in any amount so she can apply it to her purchase or also my current Front Porch Session Special would be great to gift her!  I will be in and out of the studio over the next 2 days for you to stop in and purchase or sneak and text me at 304-638-5275 or email agreerphotography@yahoo.com and I can meet you somewhere with  one.  There is also the option of invoicing & emailing you a gift certificate too.

Here are some of my favorites from The Painter Family’s front porch session!

Olivia ~ 9 Days New

On Monday I talked about incorporating things important to seniors in their sessions,  that also applies to newborn sessions.  I have had parents bring in special blankets made for baby, a memento of someone passed away, sports memorabilia or items highlighting their careers.

For Miss Olivias session we got to incorporate both Saras & Jonathans careers.  This was a super fun session and they were wonderful to work with, both were very at ease as first time parents.

Olivia was a dream baby for her photos and slept almost the entire time, rarely making a peep!

Here are some of my favorites from her session!

Did you know the best time to schedule your newborn session is when you are still pregnant?  That way you have a better availability of time slots for scheduling.  I  pencil you in around your due date then we adjust the session day according to when you deliver.  Contact me today to get penciled in for your newborn session.  agreerphotography@yahoo.com

Sparkle & Shine!!!

It’s time to experience the joy and fun of childhood with a glitter mini session!!  These sessions are so much fun!!  Kids love them because they are unscripted, not really a posed session, just dancing and tossing glitter around!!!

These are only offered for a limited time!!!  Book your session now for March 1st, 2nd, and 3rd!!   Packages range from $40 to $110.  There is a $40 retainer due at the time of booking with your contract to secure your spot and that is then deducted off of the package you choose that day.

Due to the nature of glitter, these are recommended for ages 3 and up unless you think your under 3 year old can follow directions to not get it in their eye or eat it lol

To schedule please email agreerphotography@yahoo.com!

 

Guys! Still need a Gift? Couples Mini Sessions!

Happy Valentines Day!!  I hope everyone has a wonderful day.  The day doesn’t have to be celebrated with a spouse, bg/gf, etc.  You can celebrate the day just by offering a smile to someone, paying it forward, or spreading kindness.

Do you still need a gift for your sweetheart???  I love flowers, candy and yummy food as much as the next girl, but ya know what I am treasuring most lately?  Pictures I have with my husband from our fall session!  While we snap quick pics here and there occasionally, having professional portraits is so important.  Not just for decor in our home, but someday our kids are going to appreciate having photos of their parents together.

Guys!  Get your girls a couples mini photo session!! Girls schedule it and tell him you have your gift taken care of!

I am offering couples mini sessions on Saturday February 23rd from 3-5 in the afternoon.   The investment is $95 with a $35 retainer due at the time of booking and the remaining $60 due at the session.  Your session will include a 15 minute outdoor session and the downloadable edited images with a print release.  To schedule please text/call 304-638-5275 or email agreerphotography@yahoo.com.

Here are some of my favorites from my session last Novemeber with Cameron and Callie!  Scroll below to hear from Callie about their session.

 

“My boyfriend and I were temporarily living in West Virginia and I wanted to get pictures taken so we could send out Christmas cards. My sister had previously used Amanda to take my niece’s pictures and a few of or whole family and they turned out so beautiful and my niece looked so angelic. So we went ahead with Amanda for our couples pictures. We’d never had professional pictures together before, and Amanda made us feel super comfortable. On top of that, she did a great job capturing our relationship. We love to laugh and have fun with each other and that really came out in all the pictures. She gave us some general direction which helped, but also knew how to get us to just be ourselves and snapped the perfect shots without us even noticing. Even though it was freezing outside and we worked fast, we ended up with so many great pictures…too many pictures to decide on, so we ended up with all of them from our session.”  – Callie

Easter Mini Sessions

When I moved in to my new studio last month the first session I shot was a promo for my Easter set up with a long time client.  Since then I have met a lot of great new clients stopping by for my Easter Mini Promo.

This year for Easter I decided I wanted to go with something simple, classy, and spring like.  I was nervous about that decision because in the past I have had lots of props in the scenes and kind of thought that’s what people would expect.  The feedback I have received has been wonderful.  Everyone has made positive comments about it, loved the simplicity of it and the colors!

These are just a few of the Easter portraits from the past month!  There is just a week left to get your session scheduled!  Contact me asap to get on my schedule.

My Newest Adventure…

Happy Monday Everyone!

I know I have fallen off of the blogging earth the last month but I have a very exciting reason… I signed a lease on a studio space on March 1st!!!  Someday’s I still can’t believe it!!

The landlord contacted me in January to let me know that it was becoming available again in March and would I be interested.  My husband and I chatted about this space a year ago but I was too nervous to take the leap at the time.  But as encouraging as my sweet husband always is, this time he said “Amanda, if you do not try it, you will always wonder what if you had.”

The first few days were spent moving props and backdrops, putting together furniture, ordering signs and scheduling electricians.  I kicked off my first month here with lots of Easter mini’s, a few birthday sessions and a couple newborn sessions.

I have been much busier since moving here and for that I am so grateful!!  I have had established clients stop by and have met lots of new ones too.

My studio is located in a quaint little space on West Main Street in Ripley across from the courthouse.  I love seeing the hustle and bustle of our little town out my store window.

One day a few weeks ago there was the most beautiful light little snowfall happening so I went out to grab some photos of the studio with the snow falling.

The Sorn Family

Along my photography journey I have met some of the sweetest clients ever!  Last fall I was so blessed with capturing memories for so many families, one of those was Brittany and her son Jett when they came for a Mommy & Me session.  We hit it off instantly, Jett was such a sweet little guy and Brittany is so friendly and such a great momma. You can view all of the photos from Brittany & Jett’s Session here

Brittany contacted me the end of December about scheduling a family session with her parents because her mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and they wanted to capture some photos before she had surgery in a few months.

We got it scheduled and met at the Dunbar Wine Cellar Park on beautiful February day. Brittany’s parents, Jeff and Carmen were so much fun to work with!  They both adore their daughter and of course their grandson.  Jeff was giving suggestions on poses and locations for photos which gave his girls some laughs.  The photos turned out wonderfully I think and my clients were pleased which makes for a happy photographer.

As you say your prayers please send some up for The Sorn Family, Carmen still has a lot to go through to beat this.
