For small business Saturday, I chose to offer to give back to the community that has supported my business for the past, almost, 8 years by offering a complimentary Christmas portrait to the first 6 people to sign up. I was thrilled with the response and booked those up quickly. I was able to give 6 families a beautiful portrait for their Christmas cards and something they are all grateful for. Of course, I took many pictures, but only delivered one that was complimentary, so unfortunately, I cannot post those to my blog, but I did have my friend Alison and her family come at the end to get a few portraits for them too. Afterall, she had just photographed my crazy maternity photos. I can’t wait to see those. Anyway, for now, I leave you with a photo of Alison and her wonderful family. This is typical of anyone with kids trying to take a photograph. These are some of my favorite types of photos because it truly shows that some of the most moving photographs are photographs that show just how hard it can be to get that “perfect” portrait.
