Referral and Returning Client Program

Did you know that we had a referral program? We started it a few years ago, but it's just gotten an update! Here's how it works- For every three (3) new clients you refer to us (and that book a session), YOU will receive a FREE mini session! It doesn't matter if those three new clients book a full or mini, and it doesn't matter if you've ever had a session with us (although it does help).

There's lots of ways to help spread the BlondeShot Creative name and get those referrals in. If you see anyone online asking for a photographer recommendation, be sure to tag the BlondeShot Creative Facebook page and recommend us there. Have a friend or family member that you think would like our work and that you feel needs a portrait session? We do gift certificates! We also have business cards with a specific spot on the back for you to write in your name (as the "referred by"), so that you can give them out when you find it fitting.

The second part to this updated program is the "returning client" portion. Similar to the above, for every three (3) paid shoots you book with us, you'll receive one (1) free mini session!

So if you have 2 hired sessions and 1 referral, can you combine them? Sure! Just drop us an email to let us know that you currently qualify, and after verification, we'll let you know what your options are for upcoming mini sessions to choose from.

We appreciate our clients new and old, and we appreciate referrals! In this day and age and marketplace, referrals are an important lifeline for a business like mine. If you like our work and had an enjoyable photo session with us, letting others know can benefit us all- the person who is searching for a great experience and a unique style, the photographer (in this case, small business owner, artist, SAHM/mother), and now with this program YOU, who can earn free photo sessions. Thank you for helping us to maintain business, which in turn means allowing me to do something that I love while helping to support my family!


Kylie and Keira

A few years ago, I shot Keira's one-year photos. This month, I got invited back to shoot her younger sister Kylie's one-year photos, and some of the girls together. So here's a little peek of what came out of our session…


Giveaway time!!

It's November, a month for sharing things we're thankful for, and a time right before the Christmas holidays where we share gifts with people we care about. Because of the time of year, because everyone loves free stuff, and because I'm thankful for all of my clients and followers, we're doing a giveaway!! It's open to anyone in the contiguous U.S., and you have your choice of three prizes to choose from.

You can choose from: 1) A signed copy of my photography book "Less Pin-up, More Pin-down". 2) Your choice of any sticker set from Sticky Bellies (options include a maternity 12-40 weeks set, newborn-12 months or 13-24 month sets, Baby's first holidays, or Baby's milestone sets.). Or 3) If you've had or have a session (full or mini) with us any time between August and December 2014, you can win an extra (free) high-res digital download from that session.

There's 7 ways to gain entry points, and some of them you can do once a day. THREE winners will be randomly selected on November 24th!

Thanks for following us here and thinking of us when it's time to get photographs made of you and your loved ones. Please continue to share the BlondeShot Creative love with others and help to get our name out there. Just click on the "Giveaway" tab at the top of our Facebook page to enter. Good luck!


Babywearing Portraits

Last month, I celebrated International Babywearing Week with local group Anklebiter Adventures, and shot 16 wonderful babywearing families for a charity fundraiser event. Funds were raised for both the Anklebiter's free lending library program, as well as for The Carrying On Project, which sends baby carriers to military families. Below is just a sampling of images from these sessions. We had such a great time, and raised enough to send 15 brand new carriers out to families who needed them! During our BW photo sessions, we got to shoot moms and their baby's, moms and toddlers, a grandfather and grandson, a tandem wearing mama, a couple of families (husbands included), a couple of siblings, AND a couple of babywearing kids too! To see more Babywearing photos, you can also visit the album on our Facebook page.
