Senior Photo Season Has Begun!



With this weather we have been having lately (Snow. Rain. Snow. Rain. Ice. Snow. Rain. ha ha), I know it seems like Summer is never going to arrive… but it is coming!!!

… And with Summer comes Senior Photo Time!!!

We are currently busy working with our senior photo street team, a group of teens working as representatives for our studio.  You want to get to know them, as they have the inside scoop on what to expect from a DDP senior photo session, as well as they will soon have money saving coupons for you!

As we work through the rest of these Winter days, we will keep you up to date on our latest and greatest sneak peeks from our senior reps and keep you posted on any upcoming discounts or offers.

For those of you still wanting those fun Winter snow pics… time is running out! With all this week’s rain, the opportunity is sure to be limited (or at least we are all hoping ha ha)! Schedule those sessions now! FREE WINTER SNOW/WINTER SPORTS SENIOR PHOTO SESSION WITH PAID SUMMER SESSION!

Check back for more exciting things in the upcoming days!!!    🙂

Due to the insane temps and crazy snow and wind… we are chickening out and callin’ it a day!

With all of our appointments having called to reschedule to another day, we are taking the afternoon as a ‘snow day!’

Welcome Winter!  Be safe everyone!!!

New Year ~ New You ~ New Pic!

New Year ~ New You ~ New Pic!

With the new year here everyone is in that ‘I’m going to be “better” than I was last year’ mode.

Soooooo, while everyone is out there get fit and fabulous for the new year, what a better time to update those ‘old you’ drab business portraits.  For most of us the winter months are always a little slower around the office, so it is the perfect time to rework the website, file old paperwork and update your branding/marketing images!

Headshot sessions start at $110 and include a retouched version of your favorite image.  Schedule your appointment today… Make the call.




Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!!!  2019, here we come!!!


It is amazing to think that another year has come and gone…

Ferris said it best, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

2018 has been amazing and we, as always, are excited to see what the new year shall bring for us.

Best wishes to you all for the new year and thank you once again for making 2018 great!  🙂


Happy Holidays!
