I don’t know about you, Dear Reader (so Elizabethan I am today), but I kind of hate Valentine’s Day. I always have. Before I was married, I never seemed to have a date on V-day, and always sat around being a grumpy anti-Valentine’s Day-soap-box-preacher on February 14th. Really, it just seemed like a day for people in relationships to flaunt it in front of the rest of us singletons. OK, so yeah, I was a little bitter. But even after 10 years of marriage, it still seems like the expectations of sweep-you-off-your-feet romance (pushed at us by aggressive ad agencies) just set everyone up for disappointment. So I’ve been brainstorming how to help my clients celebrate the day in a way that’s not exclusive to people in happy, committed relationships, and celebrates love in all its beautiful facets. And I came up with a little plan.
On Valentine’s Day (which is a Saturday! Yay! No work for most of us!), I’m opening up the studio for (indoor! because it will be cold) mini-sessions celebrating the bond between you and whoever you love. And I’m not talking kissy-kissy infatuation – I’m talking mothers and daughters, best friends, sisters, you and your dog – whoever you want to celebrate with. Because Valentine’s Day should be for ALL of us.
Sessions are 15 minutes to keep it affordable and allow you to spend as much time as possible out having fun with your loved ones. The package includes session + high res digitals (and that’s kind of a big deal, as I’ve taken digitals out of my basic sessions for 2015) + reprinting rights, and comes to $125. I only have 6 spots left, so if you’re interested, grab yours quick. Click here to claim your spot!
