Are you a ‘Pinner’ ?

February 10, 2014

Do you just love finding new recipes, outfit ideas, cleaning solutions and organizational options in one place? A place that will hold onto those things for you so you don’t have to bookmark them or hope you can remember where you saw them. That is exactly what Pinterest does for you! Though I am sure you already knew that and are already on Pinterest, unless you’ve been living on a deserted island somewhere. If that’s the case, then, hey… now you know!

What you might not know is… we are on Pinterest too! All you have to do is search for Knowles Portrait Design on the main Pinterest page. We have ‘what to wear’ ideas, highlights of places we love to visit for sessions, funny things, even recipes our family has tried that were thought were awesome!

One more bonus is that you can pin our portraits featured on the blog, right here from the blog! Simply hover over any image and a ‘Pin’ button will appear. So we make it easy to share what we love with you and what you love with everyone else! We hope to see you over there. In the meantime…HAPPY PINNING!

At Knowles Portrait Design, it’s all about the experience. From planning your portrait session until your portraits are displayed on your walls, we want every step to be a fun and enjoyable event! With that in mind, we offer a little something extra that’s include with our Artist’s Signature session… an in person ordering session. Those who haven’t worked with us before or have yet to experience custom photography may not know what this is. We thought we would take a few minutes and define it in a little more detail.

What is in person ordering?

An in-person ordering session, sometimes called ‘in person proofing’ or ‘view & order session’ is an extra-special experience and added value just for you. Just a few days following your portrait session, we return to you at your home, condo or beach house for you to view and order your portraits. We will plug directly into your HDTV and present your portraits in actual size! We will bring sample portrait sizes, products and offerings. You can touch and see, in person, the things we offer.

What does this mean for me?

This means we are there to help you every step of the way, to answer any questions you might have. We can go over all of your options to get you exactly what you want in the very best value possible.

I’m only in town for a few days, can I still have an ordering session during my stay?

Absolutely! For our visiting clients we offer the ordering session the day following your portrait session. In certain circumstances it is sometimes possible to have your ordering session later the same day.

Our current and returning clients LOVE this extra touch during their custom experience with us. We love seeing their faces as they view their portraits for the first time!

No, it’s not thanksgiving but we think thankfulness should be a year round thing. Not just when you get together over turkey and football.  Looking back over the past 7 years in business we have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people. Beautiful families from all over the country and even some from other parts of the world. Gorgeous weddings with beaming brides so in love that it brought tears to our eyes. Precious newborn babies so innocent and snuggley. We have even been able to experience the birth of some of those adorable babies. We are so blessed! We are so grateful to be able to connect with our clients on a level where they become our friends and feel like our family. We love being a part of your lives and watching your families grow.

So to all our past, current and future clients we say, “Thank you!”. Thank you for letting us be your family photographers during the most important days in your lives. Thank you for choosing us to preserve those memories your children and grandchildren can look back on for years to come. Each and every one of you has touched our lives and for that, we thank you. We can’t wait to be a part of the next exciting chapter in the book that is your life.

2013 was a fabulous year for us and our clients. We not only expanded into Alabama to better serve our clients there, we also added the option of two associate photographers to the staff in Florida to better serve our Florida clients & vacationers.

As we start into 2014, we are excited to be sharing our new look and new name for you to enjoy, along with the same great experience, gorgeous portraiture and ‘us’ you’ve come to know and love…just BETTER!

We were so excited to have the *real* Santa & Mrs. Claus coming to the studio that we did a little pre-booking post on our Facebook page. (In case you aren’t on our facebook, go like us... now! 🙂  It was no surprise the sessions completely sold out nearly immediately! We called the North Pole and were able to reserve Santa for some extra time. Then those time slots filled up as well!

So when Santa come by the studio to say hello and take a few photos last week and we’ve found we could keep him away from the North Pole just a little longer. We have a VERY limited number of time slots left available.
