4. Sessions and Gift Certificates

This is a favorite gift for all of those who just couldn’t fit time in for a session this year – OR – when you want to give the joy of memories captured forever to a friend or family member. For a limited time, purchase any session (or a gift certificate valued at $250 or more) and receive a free 12×12 Gallery Wrapped Canvas, worth $400.  See all of the details on the SPECIALS PAGE.   Too reserve a session certificate just visit the SESSION BOOKING PAGE.  Just leave me a note about this post for the complimentary canvas.

5. Storyboard Prints

These fun collages of prints are a favorite for those who can’t decide on just one image to put on the wall (like me!)   They are also a creative way of displaying many images from a session in a storytelling format. From now until December 6th all Storyboard Collages are 10% off!

6. Keepsake Image Box

Image Boxes are another favorite choice when many images are loved and wall space is limited!  Just choose one print to display at a time on the included easel and rotate through the images in the beautiful box.  Previously available only in 4×6 or 5×7 size with mounted prints, these beautiful boxes are now available in an 8×10 and 11×14 size. For a very limited time (until December 6th) pay the same amount for an 11×14 Keepsake Image Box (with 12 images) as you would for a 5×7 image box!

8.  Calendars

Calendars make great gifts for parents, grandparents and other family members (or just a great gift for yourself!).  Start the New Year off with beautiful memories from the past year with a 2014 Calendar.  Available in both the traditional format and as an 8×12 or 12×18 print (images and calendar all on one print) – these new products are sure to please!  From now until December 6th, purchase a large print Calendar and receive either an 8×12 duplicate for free or 6 4×6 Calendar prints.

9. Wood Prints

This is the latest fun new way to display your images! I just got my own first sample shipped to me this week and I love it. It won’t work with every image, but would look great with vintage or other outdoor images.  They can come as small blocks ass shown or large prints!  Now available with special introductory pricing – and if you order a 16×20 or larger wood standout before December 6th, receive a complimentary 5×7 wood print with a stand.

10. Puppy

I don’t know about you, but this is topping my Christmas wish list this year!  Who can resist something so adorable as this? My family and I have been “puppysitting” for this little guy often over the last month and I must admit I am smitten.  I am hoping Santa will bring me one of my own.  If anyone out there knows of any specials on  Miniature Dachshunds, please let me know!
