Alison bell, okinawa, half priced, mini session, family photographer

 

My entire goal as a photographer is to offer affordable, beautiful images for everyone. I intentionally keep my prices as reasonable as possible with many options for my clients.

Half Priced Minis are just that – half the price. I gather 3 or more families at a pre determine time and location for back to back sessions 15 minutes each.

Ideal for:

  • Families
  • Updated infant/toddler portraits
  • Birthday portraits
  • Simple maternity photos
  • Christmas Cards
  • Simple senior portraits
  • Mommy & me
  • Daddy & me
  • Anything!

UPGRADE:  The mini session comes with 3 downloads, but you can upgrade to the entire gallery for an additional $100 ($325 value). Upgrading is available at any time – before or after your session.

FREE Additional Downloads – I offer a free download per review on Facebook or Google. Thats up to 2 digital downloads for free. Just shoot me a screen shot of each review and I’ll send instructions. Get your spouse to write a review

New dates are announced to the waitlist 24 hours before its open to the public. Get on the waitlist now! http://eepurl.com/bZJ6UD

January has been so refreshing! I caught up on my blog (y’all. 9 months out of date. NINE!!) I cleaned out my family photos to free up some much needed hard drive space. For my last sessions in November I got down to 9gigs! That’s 9 free gigs on my entire computer. GASP. I’m still looking for a more permanent solution for storage because…

I’m booking for spring!! The calendar is open for February, March, and early April. 

If you are PCSing this summer, BOOK NOW! Weekends go fast and so will your brain. Just do it.

There’s new pricing for 2018, but the all-inclusive Premium Session is still only $300 – fully edited gallery, digital downloads in color and black & white, over 50 images.

The ever popular Half-Priced Minis are coming back for spring! I announce dates and location via the email list first. Click over to the right >>> and subscribe.

We just got our own family photos back recently.  I can’t decide which frame to print for any of my four boys.  Each one shows a different part of his personality. My solution was to create a collage in Photoshop, even though it was sooo time consuming.

But then I found collage prints! Have you seen them?? They’re a bit hidden…

From your image gallery his Select Images > Hover over BUY > Select Product > Scroll down to Home Decor > Scroll down to Collages

Your selected images will appear in the collages!

Alison Bell, Photographer AVOIDTHECHEESE

We all do it.

You get behind the camera and instinctively blurt out, “Say cheeeeeeese!”
But that’s not what I’m after. And not what you want either. I want genuine personality in your images – photographs with heart and soul.

“Cheese” creates double chins and stiff necks.  No, thank you!

Allow the photog (me!)  to hang out with your little ones. You can step back for a minute, watch from a short distance. I’ve got tricks up my sleeve to get them interacting.  Or you can chat or tell jokes from behind the camera.  My personal favorite is potty talk. What kid doesn’t laugh at ‘fart’ or ‘poop’?!

Have FUN! Don’t be afraid to make faces, throw someone on your shoulders or upside down. Enjoy your family and it will come through in the photographs.

Most importantly, genuine interaction and authentic relationship shines when you are not looking at the camera. So don’t get stuck on “say cheese” or “look at the camera!”
