I hope you are ready to do some serious shopping tomorrow at the Family Adoption Fundraiser because there are going to be some awesome vendors there! I’ve tried to compile a list of the vendors, but I’m sure I left a few out, so I apologize in advance. In addition to the garage sale, an Ipad 2 will be auctioned off!

I’m really looking forward to Saturday. I think it’s going to be a great day of fun and hopefully a lot of money will be raised to help with the Searl’s adoption of their baby girl from Korea.

I’ve given it some thought and decided since this is a garage sale, most people probably won’t be coming dressed and ready for a photoshoot, let alone with the entire family in tow, so I’ve come up with a plan. If you’d like to have an updated family picture taken, but won’t be ready on August 6, there is hope!

If you will be at the garage sale on Saturday, from 9-12 (when I will be there), you can book me for a family session and then schedule at a time that is convenient for you and your family. For SATURDAY ONLY, you can book a mini session with me for half the price of my normal sessions!

The mini session will include an 11×14 mounted print of your choice, 15-20 images on a CD, and a 30 minute portrait session for the price of $75. In order to reserve this pricing, you must pay a retainer fee of $25 on Saturday. The balance will be due at the time of your session. For all portrait sessions booked on Saturday, I will donate the retainer fee to the Searl’s adoption fees.

So, to wrap up this extremely long post, you have two ways to help the Searl’s on Saturday. You can have your picture taken on Saturday and pay $10 for an 8×10 of your choice, or you can book a mini session for a later date and pay a $25 retainer fee with the remaining $50 due at the time of the session. The mini sessions must be scheduled no later than November 1, 2011.

I hope to see you out there and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
