So what are your thoughts on Portrait Parties?
I have been getting a lot of requests to do parties where entire families or friends are all invited over. One family is the host...the host receives a complimentary session, earns a percentage of sales from the party towards their print purchase. The Host invites friends and family over (four guest family min.) at pre-appointed times. Sessions are at a discounted rate and only last about 20 minutes each. Obviously, this time limit is negotiable when dealing with children :).

I figure I can try this out. I have two booked already, but thought I would throw these dates out at you . . .


June 14 -
June28 -
August 9 -
August 16 -

Thursdays might work as well....

July 10 -
July 31 -

A $200 deposit will still be required to hold the date.

I am thinking this will be a great fundraiser for my all my charity sessions as well. So many of these families have absolutely nothing, giving them a CD of images does nothing for someone who can't afford to have them printed. I love surprising these families with prints ready for hanging when I know they want it but can't do it themselves. This is the stuff that feeds your soul.

I have to say that my wife and I are very disappointed. We've been waiting since April for the photo's which you have already been paid in full $1200.00. Perhaps we are not high profile enough for you. You do not return our calls. We will ever see the picture????

Please call............
