Well, I’m packing my bags and heading to the beautiful Sunshine State this weekend. Can’t wait to get my palm tree fix on! =)
I have studio portrait sessions planned for Saturday and only have two spots left. Perfect time to get a head start on Easter portraits! If you are interested, you can see the schedule ONLINE HERE.
I’m also excited to get to hang with all my Florida photog friends on Sunday where I will be presenting at the FPP Spring Seminar. It will be a full day filled with lots of info and a couple live demonstrations. Be sure to sign up if you haven’t already. See you soon!
Get ready, because it’s going to be snowing in the studio next month! For THREE DAYS ONLY, come experience our “Winter Wonderland” set in our Keller location on October 25th, 26th and 27th. Once the snow melts… it will be over. Get a head start on your holiday gifts and custom cards. Ornaments too!
You can view session options and details and book your sessions online here: WINTER WONDERLAND
Hi! Hope everyone is having a fun filled summer with friends and family! I have been a busy bee with some new designs for albums and other new products, such as “Image Cubes”…they are just TOO CUTE! The PSD templates for photographers are now available in the online webstore: RRWebstore.com. There’s also a freebie available this week ONLY! In addition, all the albums are on sale this week and a couple include a matching 8×8 CUBE! Enjoy!
After almost 11 years in business, you can imagine I have accumulated dozens of external hard drives to back up thousands and thousands of digital files. I am currently implementing a new state of the art storage system for backing up current files, so from now until June 5th, 2012, you can purchase your entire session of files for any session that took place from 2001-2010 for only $200*. Additional sessions can be purchased for $125/each. After June 5th, these files will no longer be available for purchase. This price includes a print release so you can print what you want.
You may purchase your digital files online HERE. Files will be just as they were shown during your session (same retouching, color/bw etc). If you would like a full retouch to any image, this can be done for $20 per image.
This has been the week of 6 month olds… which coincidently is one of my FAVORITE ages to photograph! They are just so easy going and happy (not to mention they usually can’t crawl yet and think I’m pretty funny! Definitely a BONUS for me!) Here’s a few favorites from Mister P… He was my baby “reindeer” back in November and now he’s even cuter (I didn’t think it was possible!) ENJOY!
This little guy came in yesterday and I am in LOVE! He’s just so beautiful as are his mom and dad! He’s my newest “Bella Baby” member and I am just so excited to get to photograph him all year (and then some!)
I am currently doing a total overhaul to my High School SENIOR site… We are introducing a new program for “Senior SpokesModels” in the Southlake/Keller, TX area. We are only accepting only a limited number of SpokesModels from each school! This program is very selective and space is limited.
If selected, you will receive your Senior Session for FREE and for every other Senior you refer, you will earn credits toward any order (prints, digital files, announcements/invitations-Moms & Dads love this!) and Ca$h (the Students love this!)
If you are a 2013 senior (or know one!) be sure to apply by June 1st, 2012 to be considered to be photographed by and represent Alycia Alvarez Seniors and earn free sessions, prints and ca$h! Apply online: HERE.
