I’m so excited to announce I am now officially a dealer of Be Filled frames!

If you haven’t yet heard of Be Filled, it is a picture frame company run by my friend Tiffany. Tiffany has the most amazing sense of style (I have consulted her many times for advice on decorating my own home, she truly has an eye for design). She loves to decorate her own home with photographs, and especially loves to display them in cute frames. She is one smart woman because she saw an opportunity to start her own fancy frame business, which is absolutely thriving! It is so awesome to finally be able to get cute frames right here in Lethbridge without having to pay expensive shipping costs. Tiff also sells the most adorable day planners ever which you can also see on her website!

There are four frame styles to choose from, in 10 different colors. You can also get any of the designs as a stacked frame, which is incredibly adorable (basically just what it says, a frame stacked on top of another frame).

Here’s a preview of the four styles available…

As far as colors, you can choose from black, charcoal grey, light grey, russet brown, dark brown, pink, olive green, deep red, pink, purple, baby blue, teal, yellow and cream. I have samples available of every color as well as frame style if you want to see one for yourself.

If you are interested in ordering a frame please give me a call or email me!

To celebrate this new addition to my product line, I am giving away a free 8×10 frame! To enter to win it, leave a comment here on this blog post telling me which frame style and color you would like to win!

(contest limited to those who can meet/pickup frame in the Lethbridge area)

ALSO from now until Valentines day, order any frame in red or pink and get 25% off (single styles only, no stacks included in this sale).

Jenna Slomp Photography will be shutting down for the holidays, if you need to contact me, email is probably the fastest way, but I may take a few days to reply because I am going to be very busy enjoying Christmas with my family!

I want to thank all of my clients for an absolutely wonderful year, thank you for letting me photograph your most precious gift-your family!

This time of year is absolutely my favorite time for outdoor photos, I love fall! The colors are so beautiful and the weather is so great, it is really the perfect time to update your family portraits.

Thought I’d share a couple from a recent session with my nephew and my sister, the weather was so great this week and I happened to have a free evening so we had to sneak out and take advantage of it… unfortunately the mosquitoes are still out, I came home with more than a few bites but oh well!

fall family portraits, lethbridge, alberta

I often get phone calls in late October wanting fall color portraits and I’m sad to say that by then there is little color left out there, the nasty wind comes and knocks all the beautiful leaves off the trees… so this is a reminder to my clients to book now to avoid disappointment! I really only have a couple spots left before all the fall color goes away (and everything gets all brown and icky… :-(  ) so give me a call or email me asap if you want an outdoor session with me in October!

Just wanted to quickly post that I am taking a very limited number of sessions during the next couple months and my September calendar is already filling up. If you are wanting some fall photos (fall is my favorite time of year for outdoor photos!) or if you are expecting and due around that time please email me or give me a call so we can get your name down for one of the much coveted spots I have available!

My July and August spots are pretty much filled but if you are expecting and are due during the summer give me a call and I will see what I can do, I always try to make room for newborns!

Speaking of newborns here is a sneak peek, just one for now, I’ll post a few more soon since I am sure his parents are dying to see more!

If you guessed that the hint was “mini sessions” then you guessed right! I am sending a starbucks gift card to those who guessed correctly.

I had an extra day open up on my March calendar and I thought I would try something new and different… I am definitely in the mood for spring but it is still yucky looking outside. So I thought I would do some mini sessions with fun spring colored backdrops, but in studio.

I know it is last minute so there are only a few spots available. If they fill up quickly and there is a lot of interest, I may open up a few more times. Maybe… :-)

The images will be similar to the ones I shared of my baby in the previous post. One backdrop, one “look” (such as baby in diaper, or one outfit if you prefer). A few select props will be available but for the most part the focus will be on your child (which it should be of course!). I hope I didn’t confuse anyone with the previous post talking so much about the 6-9 month age, your child DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A BABY to participate in the mini sessions. If you have a 1 or a 4 or even an 8 year old, you can still book a mini session!

These sessions are for you if…
-you have experienced a full session with me before & just want a few updated photos of your child at this stage

-you are planning a full family or outdoor session with me in the future but just want a few studio images of your child at this stage

-you don’t want to invest in a full session at the moment but would like a few beautiful, professional images of your child right now, without a lot of variety

These sessions are NOT for you if…

-you want the full experience of a session with me: including the choice of an outdoor location, clothing &/or backdrop changes, and as much time as necessary to get the images you crave

-you want to see a lot of variety from our session, including a lot of different expressions from your child

-your child is under 4 months of age. 15 minutes is just not enough time to adequately capture a child younger than 4 months old

-your child is extremely shy and takes longer than 5-10 min to warm up to a new person (please note I work kids all the time with no problem, and understand they take a little while to warm up, but if your child is EXTREMELY shy, a mini session is not for you)

-you want a photo with other family members included (these images will just be of one child at a time)

THIS is my favorite age. To photograph and to be a mommy.

Whenever people ask me what my favorite age is to photograph, I tell them this age, between 6-9 months-when they are sitting on their own. I just LOVE photographing sitting babies… they look so cute, they give you so many expressions, and it is so nice that they are not mobile yet! They just sit where you put them!

This was just a little mini session with Parker but true to form he was Mr. Expression and I got a ton of adorable images. Parker is such a happy baby, he is always smiling and laughing… I am very, very blessed.

Anyways, enough chit chat, here are some more pictures… I have way more favs but a limited amount of time so this is it for now!

Remember I spoke of exciting things to come? Well somewhere in this post is a hint. Watch the blog tomorrow!!! If you can guess what I am going to announce, send me an email or leave a comment with your guess and if you guess right you will win a prize (anyone can enter-even if you are a photographer friend you can still win something!).

Just thought I’d do a teaser post about all the exciting things I have planned for spring and summer with Jenna Slomp Photography. Stay tuned to the blog for some fun contests and promotions…

I should have some announcements in the next week or so… In the meantime I also thought I’d let you know that you can check out my facebook page here… I haven’t been utilizing it much but now that you can post updates for your fans I will definitely be updating the page with the latest news, promotions, and of course images. So if you are on facebook a lot, and want to stay up to date with Jenna Slomp Photography that way, be sure to become a fan!
