Hi everyone!

It seems like the holidays arrive faster each year. It is hard to believe that Christmas 2017 is just around the corner! 

I would love to help you give THE perfect gifts this year, Grandparents love getting portraits of their Grandbabies. From 8x10 gift prints to custom fine art oil paintings, there is something to fit everyone's budget.

I can also help you with creating the perfect Christmas card. Don't sit there fighting with shutterfly trying to cram a photo (that you may not even love) into a template that will not work. I can design your card and get them printed on a high quality linen paper. I would like to make your holidays a little bit brighter by making them easier for you! Below you will see all of your options for cards this year, there are some lovely designs! As always, if you have any questions please call me so I can help. 

To see each design larger, click this LINK. Please note that the gold look in the card templates is not actually foil.

If you prefer to create your own cards, you can purchase digital files and create your own cards. Unfortunatley, I cannot assist with cards created using other vendors sites nor can I guarantee the results yielded from using another printing company.

Finally, thank you for being a part of my family for so many years, I love having the privilege of watching your babies grow up year after year. It is truly an honor to be your family's portrait artist!

Warm regards,

Jeannie B

Jeannie Blinson Photography Session Options

Q: What is the difference between a “Day at the Park”, a “regular on location” and a “Limited 

Edition Sunset” session?

*Day at the Park*

A: When you book your session on a “Day at the Park” day, I can accommodate multiple families within that given day, hence the session fee is reduced from $95 to $35 for a 30 minute session, per family, up to 4 members. This is a perfect amount of time for small children and familes that already have a lot scheduled into their weekends. 

*Limited Edition Sunset Sessions & On location sessions*

The “Limited Edition Sunset Sessions” are limited to one a day, for obvious reasons, and capture a perfect, dreamy, soft light that really makes a wall portrait absolutely stand out. An “on location” session scheduled outside “day at the park” dates is $95 for an hour long session for your family, up to 4 people. 

Here are the available dates for 2015 and I look forward to making memories with each of you this year!
