2014 Christmas Cards • Mini-Sessions

lissa-anglin1 Comment

All of the Fall Mini-Sessions for 2014 have been booked! I am super excited to see some new faces and some that I haven't seen in a year! Thank you to all who signed up. 

If you would still like to do a session (family or otherwise) for Christmas photos this year, I am still offering regular portrait sessions. Just send me an email through the "Contact" page here on my website!

After much ado, I decided I hated the card templates I had chosen earlier, and decided to select some that I feel fit my design sense and photos much better! I'll blame this one on my right to choose. :) 

These templates are not just available to my clients who are doing Mini-Sessions, they are available to all of my clients!

I love creating customized Christmas cards for my clients. We begin with one of the templates below, insert your photos (color or black and white), and customize the colors, text, and design to fit your needs! 

Template 1

Template 2

Template 3

Template 4

Template 5

Template 6

Any of these designs can be adapted to fit a postcard (2 sided) or folded card (4 sided). I'm also excited to offer them in boutique shapes! Here are a few examples of the unique shapes:

I've already had many requests for the ever-popular Mini-Sessions I offer this time each year, so I'm excited to roll out this year's Christmas card designs along with them! 

 

Now until Dec. 1st, 2012, you can book a Mini-Session! These sessions are shorter than my regular portrait sessions, and have been a very popular choice for families wanting some photos for Christmas cards- though they are not limited to families only! Here is the info:

 

Mini-Sessions 60.00

• 30-45 minutes in length

• 1 outfit

• 1 location

• Prints and Christmas Cards available for purchase (no print credit included) 

 

The digital negatives of Mini-Sessions will be available for 300.00 a la carte (a 200.00 savings!). 

If you'd like to book a Mini-Session, please email me at lissa.anglin{at}me.com. I typically shoot these sessions on weekdays, though there will be a few Saturdays available. If you are in the Amarillo area, please let me know- I may be setting aside a special day for you Amarilloans!

 

Along with the Mini-Sessions, I love creating customized Christmas cards for my clients. We begin with one of the templates below, insert your photos (color or black and white), and customize the colors, text, and design to fit your needs!

I'm always so excited when Wendy contacts me to set up a family photoshoot. I've been honored to photograph these guys every year for a while now, and it has been so much fun to watch Dane and Zack grow. They are totally ALL BOY and it makes me excited for our little one. Greg and Wendy are great parents. I had a lot of favorites from our session- here are a few!

2011 Christmas Card Collection

lissa-anglinComment

Wow- I can't believe it's that time again! I enjoyed designing these cards so much- I even turned on my favorite Christmas album and drank a cup of coffee (ok, the coffee thing isn't just seasonal). 

These cards are offered to my clients and feature images from their sessions (past sessions, or any session booked before Dec. 1). 

I will be booking the ever-popular MINI-SESSIONS from now until December. (This is the only time this year they will be available.)

Your Mini-Session Includes:

• 30-45 Minutes of shoot time with Lissa

• 1 location, 1 outfit

• No limit on number of people

Cost: 60.00 + tax

 

Please note that Mini-Sessions, unlike regular Portrait sessions, do not include any print credit.

You will be able to purchase prints from your session (regardless of whether or not your order Christmas Cards) from your online gallery, which will be posted about a week after your session. 

A special rate of 250.00 (normally 500.00) is available for those who wish to purchase the digital negatives.

Christmas Card and print pricing can be found HERE.

 

I have a special plan for any revenue from my Mini-Sessions this year-

It is likely that Shawn and I will have the opportunity to go on one (maybe two) missions trips this year, and so of course I am doing my best to prepare financially. I'm hoping to shoot enough Mini-Sessions this year to cover our expenses, so instead of keeping our lights on you'll be buying some VBS materials for kids in Europe. :)

 

If you'd like to book a session, please contact me through the "Portraits" Contact form in the menu bar above. 

 

Now- on to the designs! I pulled from two of my inspirations- illustration and the art deco style. I hope you love them as much as I do!

I'm also offering something new this year- Boutique Cards!

These cards feature unique shapes and have been very popular this year. Here are a few templates designed with a boutique card shape:

 

A couple of notes for my clients:

• The templates' colors, text, and wording may be altered to fit your family's style and images.

• The templates may be created in a 4x5.5, 5x5, or 5x7 format.

• You have your choice of watercolor, linen, pearl, or matte paper. 

• All cards come in sets of 25 with envelopes.
