UPDATE: It's hard to believe the holiday season is in full swing, but it is! Due to the rain this past weekend our first round of beach sessions were rescheduled for this Sunday, October 16, 2011. One of our appointments rescheduled to a future date and the good news is, we NOW HAVE A BEACH OPENING FOR THIS WEEKEND!! Get in contact with us ASAP to secure this session, hurry hurry it won't last long! Remember, we only go to the beach during the Christmas season so make sure to take advantage of this great opportunity!

 

"Which holiday session is the best, for my family?"

Many of our clients have asked this question so we thought it was time to write a blog post about it! We offer two types of Holiday Sessions: Holiday Mini and 2 Hour Concierge style Sessions. Take a few minutes to read through the details to pick the right session for your family.

2 Types of Holiday Sessions

Holiday Mini Sessions
We are pleased to announce this year's Holiday Mini Sessions! Take advantage of this opportunity, to purchase your holiday cards for 2011 and/or Wall Portraits before the Christmas rush. Don't wait until December 23rd to figure out what to get your in-laws or your spouse or even yourself, for that matter! Make it easy and memorable with beautiful holiday portraits!

There is one MAJOR change to the mini portrait sessions; you now have THREE locations to choose from! We decided to offer 3 locations this year, because we wanted to ensure you holiday portraits matched your family's decor style all 12 months of the year, not just for your holiday cards.

Why are Mini Sessions such a unique opportunity?

Is the 30 Minute Mini Session right for our family?
If you are a new client of Erika Hopkins Photography, mini sessions are a great way to get to know us and the style of photography we have to offer, plus capture those fabulous holiday card portraits. As a current client of EHP, mini sessions are the perfect opportunity to capture the ever-changing milestones of your kiddos plus capture your updated holiday portrait! We are a strong believer in having your big family portrait session at least once a year, but your kiddos are ever changing and mini sessions are the perfect way to capture the in-between moments.

What does the 30 Minute Session include?
We believe in giving you the best overall experience possible whether we spend 30 minutes or 2 hours together. We will photograph your family for 30 minutes with the primary focus on the family while snapping several photographs of the kiddos, as well. This limited opportunity also includes 2 digital portraits OR 24 Press Printed Holiday Cards for the fabulous investment of $225.00

Does this mean you won't help us with clothing ideas and portrait selections?
Absolutely, not! You will receive a detailed e-mail with clothing suggestions based on the mini session location you select. Your photographs will be placed online to view and make final selections at your leisure. We will set a phone ordering appointment where we can make artistic suggestions.

Since it is a mini session, will we have an opportunity to order additional boutique portrait products?
Yes of course! Please inquire for our boutique product guide with our full selection of portrait products and unique framing options.

So enough with the details! How do we schedule our Holiday Session?

Limited Availibility

The cameras and our legs get the most exercise during the fall months and we want to make sure you are a part of our holiday season! If you are looking to schedule a family portrait/holiday event photography or holiday mini session please do ASAP. Our holiday cut off date is November 27, 2011 at 11:57pm, this ensures guarenteed Christmas delivery. We offer RUSH sessions after this date, but who wants to wait till the last minute? Looking forward to seeing so many new faces and many of our wonderful clients!

Beautiful Blue Eyes and Sassy Little Lips! | Orlando Baby Photographer

The best part of our "Itty Bitty Baby Plan" is getting to watch all these precious little babies grow! These photographs are from her 9 month session, a few months ago (a bit late...better late than never). It's hard to believe she will be turning 1 this week!

You can't really tell from these photographs, but we were pushing deep into nap time and she was growing extremely impatient. Thanks a million to mommy for saving the day and keeping her happy until the very end!

Super excited for her outdoor cake smash session, in just a few weeks! Even more excited to see the clothing provided by Vintage Couture!

**Aren't her little lips so preciously sweet!?**

Handsome Little C- 6 Months Old {Winter Park Natural Light Baby Photographer}

As we all know they grow up SO quick and Little C. is no different! I can't believe just a few short months ago we were photographing his first few days in the world. One lovely Saturday morning, we met in the Downtown Winter Park area to capture both family portraits as well as the many milestones of Little C. We had a super happy baby ready to sit and give us a million different faces. When it was time for his close up, dad was a great help with getting him to smile and ignore the quickly rising temperature. He did such a great job, I think it even helped both Mom and myself for get about the heat :).

The temperature has been a recent trending topic in the blog, but it's just something hard to ignore! As I write this, the weather is predicted to reach a heat index of 110 degrees today. Why am I sharing this with you? Because I want everyone to understand part of the reason why we offer shoots in the super early morning like 8am or into sunset (which is unbelievable gorgeous!). During the Holiday Portrait season though,  there will be a bit more flexibility with our time frames. *Holiday Portrait Dates and Times will be released in mid August! Last year we blessed and ecstatic, to have sold out of all holiday mini session appointments in 48 hours, so make sure to follow us on FB & Twitter for the most up-to-date news and information.

{Back to this amazing family}

Super excited for the session we have planned for this awesome family in the coming months! Enjoy!

xoxo
