Tell your friends!

REFERRAL PROGRAM


As a thank you to those who spread the word about my photography, I would like to give you something in return. If you refer someone to me and they book a session, you will earn $10 to use for your next session. Refer seven people and you only pay $5 for your session! The referral coupons can be used for your session or for desk photos or wall photos (the only exclusion is fine art canvas'). So, if you know a lot of people, you could earn a lot of pictures. I will send you your coupon via email to let you know that a friend has booked a session. Collect these coupons and then give me a call to book your session to redeem them. It is that easy!

And while I am feeling generous, the friend that you refer will get a complimentary 8x10 or smaller photo during their session.

Make sure you tell your friend to mention your name while booking your session!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Trina

*Coupons do not hold cash value. They must be used on photography related items.

Benefit sessions

As I mentioned earlier, I am really excited to do some work for two causes that are so special to me. I will be doing sessions in order to make donations to Families of Autism/Asperger's Syndrome Care, Educate, and Support. (F.A.C.E.S.) in April (Autism Awareness Month) and to the Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta www.atlantadsaa.com for Down Syndrome Awareness month in October.

The sessions will be mini sessions. Each will be thirty minutes and I will show 5-8 proofs online per session. The package is $100 and includes one 8x10, three 5x7 prints, and one set (8) of wallets. From each session $35 will be donated to the designated charity of that month. Due to time constraints, the session is available for one or two subjects and no clothing changes. The package price must be purchased and paid for before the session in order to hold your session time. Additional portraits will be available for purchase for a discounted price of 15% off regular pricing.

These are the dates that have been set:
April 5 (Autism Awareness)- Botanical Gardens
April 6 (Autism Awareness)- UGA Founder's Garden

(*rain dates will be the following weekend, April 13)

September 27 (Down Syndrome Awareness)- Botanical Gardens
September 28 (Down Syndrome Awareness)- UGA Founder's Gardens

(*rain date will be the following weekend, October 4 and 5)

Please check back soon to find out the time slots available.

Make sure you tell your friends. This is an excellent opportunity to get milestone photos taken or spring/fall portraits made and helping two wonderful causes at the same time is a huge bonus.

Please contact me with any questions. I can't wait for the mini-sessions!

Photos now on display!

I am so excited to announce that my display is FINALLY up at Dr. Jayni Bradley's office in Watkinsville. I met Dr. Bradley and her wonderful staff at a Baby Expo in Athens and she so graciously offered me an opportunity to use a few walls to display a few pictures. Little did she know months later I would be putting TWENTY photos up.

If you are looking for a pediatric dentist for your children, please do not hesitate to call Dr. Bradley and her staff. I had the opportunity to photograph three families from the staff and have met several others. They are like working with family. They are super kind and patient (even with indecisive photographers who can not decide on which display to put up). Dr. Bradley is located in Watkinsville at 1120 Mars Hill Rd., Suite 101. They have a website, www.drjayni.com. Or you can call them, 706-769-1994. I will be cooking up special deals for Dr. Bradley's patients so you will want to be a part of it!

Thanks so much to all the families that agreed for me to put your photos on display. My photos of the display do not do justice to all the beautiful children who are on the wall. And again, thanks so much for letting me put my work in your office Dr. Bradley and staff. I feel privileged to be part of your team.

Climbing out from the covers...

I have been so sick for the last few days. It was some type of sinus, fever, coughing, aching sickness that made me feel like I had been hit by a bus. Thankfully my wonderful husband John took time off work and cared for the kids while I recovered. Although, I am still not a 100% I am at least up right and functioning.

I am back at work and will be finishing galleries that were promised long ago. Thanks so much for your patience. I work with the best people!
