Great Outfit Ideas for Seniors! {San Antonio Senior Photographer}

Hey Seniors....
We want you to LOVE your photos and so I put together some recent seniors to make this little "idea book" to help you put together some awesome outfits for your upcoming senior session!
Enjoy!
 

Baby Amelia! {San Antonio Newborn Photographer}

Little Amelia is so adorable in her first ever Portrait Session.
Amelia's mom and dad are both physicians, hence the medical books. Mom is also an avid runner and so we had to incorporate Mom's running shoes during her newborn session. My assistant, Rebecca, and I had so much fun hanging out with Amelia and her parents. Seeing as I only had baby boys to raise, I LOVE getting my baby girl "fix" each time I have a newborn girl to snuggle with. Ahhhh....heaven!

Check out some of the beautiful images we created!

Celebration of Smiles Charity Event {San Antonio Photographer}

This is your chance!!!
Need a new professional headshot?
Have a new, cool haircut to show off?
Has your child just lost his two front teeth and you NEED this captured?
Whether you are a baby, child, tween, teen or adult....this Event is for YOU!

For $24 you will receive a quick 10 minute session with Master Photographer, Elizabeth Homan (that is me :-)) AND one small digital file that YOU will choose ONLINE and we will email it to you.
What is a SMALL digital file?? It is a WEB sized image, perfect for online sharing (facebook, linked in, etc) or for you to email to Grandma, or for a website. It is NOT good for any printing. In fact, if you do print it any bigger than your thumbnail, it will look like CaCa (aka Doodoo).
However, you will be able to purchase ANYTHING else that you would like (prints, collages, portraits and YES, we will also sell you a Medium Digital File that will be good for printing should you want to make Business Cards or anything smaller than an a 8x10 (however, those are not $24)

You know what is REALLY UBER COOL about this Event?
It is for CHARITY!!
Operation Smile is an amazing organization that does surgery for children who were born with cleft lip/palette. You should look at their website to see how awesome it really is!!!
If I can do ONLY 10 SESSIONS, then WE have purchased ONE surgery for ONE child. $240=one surgery

Imagine, if you spread the news like wildfire....
Maybe we could buy several children their NEW SMILES!!!
 
So, it is YOUR JOB to SHARE this link with all of your friends and let's make a difference in this world!
Together....WE can make a Difference!

YES....I DO WEDDINGS! {San Antonio Wedding Photographer}

I have been in business for 21 years.
I have earned the degree of Master Photographer, Photographic Craftsman and Certified Professional Photographer.
I have photographed thousands of families, children and babies.
But recently people have asked me: Do you photograph Weddings?
Of COURSE I DO!!!
I have photographed hundreds of Weddings.
I have won Best Wedding Album in Texas, the Southwest and on a National level many, many times.
I have won Best Bridal Portrait 12 times!
Yet, most of clients don't think of me as a "Wedding" photographer.

Here is the scoop:
20 years ago, I was doing 50 weddings a year! Wow! That is a lot, but I was in my twenties and I ran like the Energizer Bunny!
13 years ago, I had my first son, so I cut back a little.
9 years ago, I had my second son, so I cut back a little more.
7 years ago, I had my third son, so I cut back even more.
We (my hubby and I) decided that we would do no more than 10 weddings a year. This way I could go to soccer games, birthday parties and just hang out with my boys on Saturdays some of the time.
As a result, I guess my clients thought that I stopped doing weddings. This is NOT true!
I LOVE WEDDINGS. I love every aspect of the chaos, the romance, the excitement!
I don't want to do them every weekend. I feel that I can't really focus on the wedding if I do too many.
One a month is a perfect mix for me.

Here is what we promise when you hire Artistic Images as your wedding photographer:

~Individual attention...we only do ONE a month!

~A personal photographic wedding consultant. Rebecca will guide you through every step of the process.    From Engagement portrait selection to scheduling a Makeup Artist for your Bridal portrait, to being your personal assistant on your wedding day, Rebecca will be there for you!

~A portrait artist. I don't do "cookie-cutter" photographs, meaning that I don't do the same photograph at every wedding. When you hire me, you are hiring my artistic vision using your wedding as my inspiration.
No two weddings are the same, just as no two people are the same.

~A finished product. Although we do have the option to purchase a "digital file" package, most brides choose to let us do the work. We will create a gorgeously designed, leather album with your favorite images from the wedding. The album can range from 30 pages to a two volume set with everything in between. We firmly believe that your Wedding Album will be something you will treasure forever and that is why we only use the best Album Makers in the industry.

Remember that in order to secure Elizabeth and her team for your wedding, please check with us on your selected date before setting it in stone. We would hate to have a prior commitment!

Here is a sample of some of our most current weddings:
