This past weekend a friend of mine came and took our family pics for Christmas cards. She did an absolutely amazing job. She posted some of the photos on my Facebook page yesterday and I have gotten phone calls and so many comments about what a wonderful job she did. And that is why I am thrilled to announce that she is giving away a complimentary session to one lucky Gift Closet reader in the South Metro Atlanta area!!!
Odalys Mendez specializes in modern wedding, baby, family and seniors photography in the Metro Atlanta area. She came to our home, but is willing to go on location just about anywhere, and will travel out of state for weddings. She is easy to get along with, made us all feel comfortable, the kids had a blast with her, and she had really creative ideas. Here are some of the gorgeous photos she took of my children in our backyard and neighborhood:
My rambunctious little boy...
My sweet babies....
I love them all, but this one is so sweet!!
My sweet daughter and a rare moment between a brother & sister!
Here is this Mom-prenuer's inspiration:
"I took some photography courses in college and although I loved it, I opted to pursue a more “practical” career, but I have always yearned to do something creative. Having children and seeing them grow certainly flipped my world upside down. Through the years I took them to studios and I although I had all these photos of them in beautiful dresses, posing perfectly, their personalities were missing from these images. I knew I wanted more. I wanted to capture my family’s memories in images that told our story, document their wit, innocence, quirks, and silly expressions in print. I want to do the same for my clients, striving to document their love and connections for them to cherish year after year."
How it works:
After a session she usually posts a sneak peek within 48 hours on her blog, and you will have access to a password-protected online gallery of 30-35 images within a week. At that time she usually meets with my clients for a personalized ordering appointment where you can go over the images. She is very involved in helping out with their choices and even working around the design and décor of your home if you wish. Products are delivered from four to six weeks after the appointment.
All of her products are of outstanding quality!The session albums are very popular amongst clients, they are hand-crafted in the U.S. and customizable in gorgeous leathers and fabrics. All gift prints are textured, mounted and UV coated for longevity, and images are also available in luxurious gallery-wrapped canvas.
