Hard to believe but we are officially in full Holiday Portrait Session time! We are offering a variety of locations {Beach, Natural Field, Historic Urban, Christmas Theme and our new Boardwalk Location!} This little guy was one of our first kiddos to experience our Christmas in Field Mini Sessions. We have a couple of last minute openings for this Saturday’s {Nov. 3} Natural Field or Christmas Theme! Whether you are wanting a portrait session that will last you throughout the year or a Christmas feel, these are a great fit. If we have had the pleasure of capturing your family in the field before and you are looking for a new location, I would recommend the “Historic Urban”. Check back soon for a preview on that location!

Check the website for additional dates/times and all of this year’s locations!

If our dates are not working for you or if you would like a longer session at the location of your choice, send us a message and we will do our best to fit you in our holiday calendar!

Of course, we can’t forget Halloween! So I hope you and the family have a great time tomorrow night! Would love to see some of the adorably creative costumes that you share each year!!

xoxo

Oviedo Family Portrait Session -The Best Mother's Day Gift a Mom could ask for

Hard to believe fathers day is right around the corner. Normally I am on top of my game with gifts for my amazing husband, but this year I want to do something personal, something with meaning that he will appreciate for a long time. {Still working on what that might be…}

A thoughtful gift was exactly what their dad thought when he decided to have portraits captured for mother's day. Dad stressed it was important to have fun, natural portraits that captured their overall personalities. These kids were a "hoot" {as my grandmother would say} and had me laughing from start to finish!! 

So glad we were able to make mom's wishes come true.

Cocoa Beach at Sunset | Orlando Family Photography

I've had the pleasure of working with this family for many years and every time I have so much fun. Just love how relaxed and easy going they are, as this allows for genuinely great portraits.

During their session the weather was just perfect! Sometimes beach portraits can be challenging because many factors can be out of our control; dodging people on the beach, strong winds, high tide, etc. However, on this particular day, the lighting was just magical; a rich creamy yellow sunset with hues of blue and purple. It was perfect, with hardly anyone on the beach and without a single gust of wind!

It is hard to believe I met this mom almost five years ago, while brainstorming in a marketing networking group. She has been extremely helpful over the years with many of my graphic design needs. Just love how her design background always comes out in their outfits- such a variety of colors and textures.

Looking forward to photographing your family again, this fall!

Merry Fall, Happy Christmas {Orlando, FL Holiday Portrait Sessions}

Merry Fall, Happy Christmas? That is how it is starting to feel around here, with fall portrait sessions in full swing and Holiday Mini Portrait Sessions starting this weekend. I am not sure if I should be throwing leaves or snowballs (neither which we have in FL, but you can imagine)! So, all year it has been on the calendar to blog the holiday sessions from last year, but with a wedding, a baby on the way and a blessed year full of sessions, it never happened! So we are now into mid October, what better time than now, to peek into a few of the holiday sessions, from last year!

Which Holiday Session is the Best, for My Family? | Central Florida Holiday Portrait Photographer

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?

To schedule your 2011 Holiday Portraits, please click the "Contact Us" tab at the top of the page.

*make sure to include your preferred location, in the "remarks" section.*

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!
