So I started hinting around new things coming for 2012 and have spent almost all of the year on the road so far, so I haven’t gotten to share any of these exciting new things. The first thing I’m going to share are my Editorial Sessions that I’ll be offering this year. Basically these sessions are going to be similar to what you see in your favorite fashion magazines and on America’s Next Top Model. Each month there will be a different theme and they’ll be run as mini sessions. That is unless you’re a senior client of mine, and then you still have the option of any of the monthly sessions, but also have the option of doing a totally custom Editorial Session.
Do you have to be a junior or senior in high school to take part? Heck no! I can only imagine how fun it would have been to do one of these when I was 12, especially with a group of friends. Even more, if you’re of drinking age and have some girlfriends coming in and doing sessions with you, we’ll crack open a bottle of champagne and make it a girl’s night out.
I haven’t even mentioned my favorite part. Every single Editorial Session will include professional hair and makeup! If you’re like me, you don’t pamper yourself that often and it’s complete heaven when you actually get to. I’m going to make sure that you feel like a super model.
So, the first month I’m starting with a theme that I’ve been dying to try. Every Sunday night at 9:00 Mitch knows that we have to watch Pan Am. Don’t get me wrong, the storylines are good, but I watch for the clothes, the hats and the fun makeup. Thus, February will be kicked off with a retro 50′s and 60′s theme. I spent Monday of this week shooting Rachel and Jae to get some example shots to show off how awesome ya’ll can look.
Oh, and no excuses here. All of these clothes came from either Forever 21 or Hollister. So, if you don’t have time or just don’t have great luck at thrift stores, you still have options. I was kind of blown away by all of the options I found for these girls without even trying. If you’re crazy busy with school, work or just life, I’m also offer styling where I’ll pick out a few options for you and you’ll have the final say. We’ll also have some fun accessories and props waiting for you!
So, the down low on this first month is that you get to do a fun Retro Mini Session for only $99. It includes your choice of a high res file that you can print or upload until you’re blue in the face. This is a huge deal for me, I’ve never given out files before on a portrait session. Since it’s that time of year, it’ll also include a digital Valentine for you to email to all of your loves. I’ll upload to the ALM Facebook as usual as well and you’ll get invited to the studio for a Premiere Ordering Sessions (another new little thing that I’m offering this year). Something else that I’m doing that’s a little different is donating 10% of all sales to the Make A Wish Foundation. What are you waiting for? Click on the Contact ALM tab up above!
