Several of you have complimented us on our new blog design. I have told you that I would be introducing my designer soon and the time has arrived!
Our beautiful new look was put together by my friend Kathryn at Creative Glory. In this post I am going to focus on her photography business, but...yes! She does blog design as well! If you need blog buttons she can put one together for a mere three dollars. And a new header is only five dollars! Kathryn has an eye for beautiful design and great color combinations. If you are like me and find it hard to make time for blog design (and don't have a lot of money to spend on such things), I highly encourage you to take advantage of her custom blog design services. I will include her contact information at the end of this post, but first, let me tell you a bit about her wonderful and affordable photography services and show you some of her work.
Kathryn lives in the Knoxville, TN area and will meet you for your session anywhere within an hour of her home. This is wonderful if you are planning a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains, or will be visiting the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN area. Knoxville is quite close to these destinations has many beautiful venues for photography. Kathryn can provide you with suggestions if you need them.
A photo session is fifty dollars and usually lasts one to one and a half hours. You are welcome to change outfits during this time. She spends about a week editing photos, and then will post a few of her favorites on her blog for you to preview. ( She is very discrete and uses nicknames if you desire so your family can remain anonymous.) She will then mail you a CD for you to print and share photos as you wish. That is it! No high pitch sales or pressure...none.
Professional photographers can charge several hundred dollars per session, plus pricey fees for prints and so on. I love that Creative Glory offers quality at an affordable price. In addition, if you are a family that had brought a child into your family through adoption within in 6 months of scheduling your session, your first session is free! What a blessing!
This is an excellent and affordable option for those senior portraits!
As a former school teacher and experienced nanny, Kathryn is excellent with children and can quickly build rapport with even the most reluctant subject. If you are interested in setting up a session, or if you have further questions, you can contact Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Her blog is still a work in progress, but she welcomes you over to take a look! You can also click on the Creative Glory button in our sidebar. Enjoy!
