2019: What to keep and what to change? (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

The beginning of a new year is a great time to assess my business, to consider what what to change and what to keep the same.

What worked:

A lot of things worked well in 2018; most notably my  introduction of In Person Sales (in place of online galleries). I was very resistant to doing IPS, because I am not a sales person. I don’t ever want to feel like I am pushing someone to spend money. But it really is true that the images I show clients sell themselves and the moment when clients see their pictures is irreplaceable. It is empowering and is very gratifying to me.

I sold more products in 2018 and will continue to do so. A  professionally printed print, wall art or an album is the natural end product of a photography session. A digital image is not. Part of the art of photography is to see images printed and see a concrete sample of the image. I will continue to sell products to my clients, but will include digital images as that is what clients want.

What’s new:

I am introducing a new kind of session in 2019; a mini newborn session. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons, but most notably because many newborn moms are exhausted from lack of sleep and don’t want to be in a hot studio for 3 or 4 hours.  A mini newborn session is shorter. It is  an hour and a half, baby is wrapped for all poses and the focus is on baby pictures. Family pictures can be done at the 6 month stage when moms are more rested. I will still be doing full newborn sessions with parent and sibling pictures if that’s what your family decides on. But I think this is a great option.

As an introductory offer, and because Jan is a very slow month, I am offering 2 free mini newborn sessions. If you want a full newborn session for $125, I will deduct $80 from your session fee, giving you a full newborn session for only $45.

Pass this on to anyone you know who is expecting in the next couple of months. Be one of the first people to contact me and get this session free!

 Mini Newborn Sessions!


I am introducing a new type of session; a mini newborn session. I love photographing newborns but I realize that doing a 3 or 4 hour session is tiring for a sleep deprived mom and that some people only want pictures of their baby. A mini newborn session is a great alternative to a longer session. A mini session includes  photographing the baby; not the siblings or the parents or the grandparents. Just the baby. If that is something that you or someone you know might be interested in, give me a call.

As an introductory offer, I am offering 2 of these sessions free to the first 2 people who send me a deposit. You can book a mini newborn  session by sending me a text, an email or giving me a call. You will need to send a $50 deposit by interac e-Transfer to secure your free session. The deposit will be applied towards the purchase of prints or products.

Please note, that this offer does not include any digital images or products.

The free sessions are only for babies under 2 weeks old.



Christmas Wishes!


I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas (Holiday) week and hope that you have time to visit with family and friends. I hope you take lots of pictures of your times together so that you can look back at this time in 10 years or 20 years.  Please print some of those pictures so that they are available for you to view in the future.

I hope that you get some professional portraits done in 2019 and that you order products to decorate your house and albums for future generations to look at. I hope that you include people’s names in those pictures so that your great great grand kids will know who the strangers in the pictures are.

And I wish you good health in 2019, as without our health we really have nothing. And I hope you find happiness in the small things in your day; the smile on your child’s face, the sun and the warm wind on your face and that great piece of chocolate.



Gift Certificates


Are you still looking the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list? How about getting them a gift certificate for a photography session? It’s the perfect gift for a busy family or a family that is expecting a baby. It might be something that they couldn’t afford themselves but would love to have.

Call, email or text me if you would like a personalized gift certificate. I can email the certificate to you and you can pay for it with a credit card, interac eTransfer or with Paypal. It’s simple and it a great gift!


Yours in Photography,

Christina

It really is true that good things come in small packages. Look at this perfect little guy, who was 3 weeks old at the time of our photography session and weighs only about 5 lbs. Little J was a perfect little model; easy to settle and pose and oh, so cute!

Here’s a sneak peek at this little guy!

I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful brown-eyed boy on Thursday. This little guy was a perfect little model and gave me open eyed and beautiful expressions, as well as sleepy baby ones.

Look at his big brown eyes. They are an exact match for his mamas!
