I see that this is happening at Amy Waddington’s photography studio, who is Amy Waddington?
There are a lot of great things that could be said about Amy. She is a fantastically gifted photographer with a beautiful studio and a great eye (just look at some of her photos below). But what I love most about Amy is not her great eye, but instead her big heart. On one of the hardest days of my life (the day I gave birth to our stillborn son Sawyer) it was Amy who came and captured those brief and fleeting moments for our family (free of charge!). Talented AND generous? What’s not to love?! I heart Amy and know you will be too, please come and see for yourself!
I saw you mentioned 5 minute family* photos, tell me more about that!
We (Mom 4 Life and Amy Waddington) are putting together a really speical slide show celebrating motherhood. As moms we all have a unique story, yet, we all share the lifelong journey of motherhood. What does being a Mom 4 Life mean to you? Answer that question in one sentence and display it proudly in a beautiful photo with your kids. Amy will edit the photos and I will put them together in a slide show with accompanying music for a beautiful tribute to your journey!
*For this specific shoot we will just feature mom and her kids.
What will the slide show be used for?
The slideshow with accompanying music will be created displaying all of the fun and creative ways that being a Mom 4 Life has meaning for you. This video may also include some short video segments from the photo shoot. It will be shared online by Mom 4 Life and Amy Waddington. A public link will be available so that you may also view and share the final video with family and friends. No personal or family names will be used in the video to protect your privacy.
I want to take advantage of the 5 minute photo shoot, how do I reserve a spot?
Great! Click here to RSVP and leave a comment letting us know your prefered time slots (please leave more than one if you can) or if you are not on facebook, leave a comment here of your top time preferences and we will email you back with your time slot. Please remember that spots are limited and are filled on a first come, first serve basis so act quick!
What should I (and my kids) wear for the photographs?
Your choice of clothing is very important for a photo shoot. Clothing can really make or break a successful session. It is important to remember to stay true to your style but also keep in mind what looks good on camera. We are creating art and clothing is a tool to make that art come to life. I recommend wearing clothing that is embellished (ruffles, buttons, worn out jeans, patches, fur and/or anything that has texture to it. These types of clothing photograph great and it also adds another element besides the subject. I also recommend color and lots of it! Go bold, layer bright colors and mix patterns. Please check out Amy’s galleries and blog to get ideas from others. She also has a “clothing” suggestion tab on her blog. Go check it out! =)
What time should I arrive?
Each photo session will be short and sweet. Our goal is to keep it to about 5 minutes. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time slot. We will take a photo of you and your kids holding your answer to our question, “What does being a Mom 4 Life mean to you?” and (if desired) one without the sign (that you may choose to purchase). We will also have some fun goodies waiting for you (and your kids) inside the studio so plan to come early or stay a bit later to enjoy all that we have planned for you.
What if I would like to purchase the photo of myself and my kids?
Amy will take a photo of you and your kids both with and without your written response to our question. These images will be available to preview and purchase once they have been edited. Amy is generously donating her time to help us with this fun project. If you are pleased with the photo, we encourage you to consider purchasing it as a fun reminder of your day!
I am not interseted in the photo shoot but would like to come for the open house, tell me more!
Regardless of if you plan on getting your photo taken, we hope you will stop by for our Open House. We will have a wide assortment of Mom 4 Life products marked down as much as 50% to celebrate our 7th Anniversary. In addition, we will also have refreshments (for the moms and the kids) as well as some free gifts!
We hope to see you there!
