This sweet boy turns 6 months old today, which is reason to celebrate!  Sometimes half-birthdays are as fun as the real thing, especially if you have two big sisters who will squeeze you and kiss you and love you to bits!

I thought it would be a good day to remind of you of the Spring Cleaning sale going on right now too!  This is a great opportunity to purchase all of the Digital images from any session in 2008-2013 at an amazing rate! Simply email me listing the sessions that you’d like to purchase (for example, “full-res files from our session in 2008, 2009 and 2013″) and pop a check in the mail to 708 Lavender Dr, Savoy IL 61874 with that same note in the memo line. Payment must be by check or cash, and orders must be received before 11:59pm on March 21st.  Below are your two awesome options:

Low-Resolution Digital Collection — $100 for each session (regularly $300)
Includes all of the low-resolution images from a past session of your choice, delivered via Dropbox.
Includes a print release that allows you to make prints up to 4×6 in size, as often as you want!
Does not include any reference prints or image box.

Full-Resolution Digital Collection — $400 for one session, $200 for each additional session (regularly $950)
Includes all of the full-resolution images from a past session of your choice, delivered via Dropbox.
Includes a print release, so you can make prints as large and as often as you want!
Does not include any reference prints or image box.

(This is the best deal by far — individual full-resolution files are usually $150 each!!)

If you’ve already purchased the low-res collections from past sessions, and would like to upgrade to full-resolution — I have a special discount for you!  Just email and ask for the details.

Can’t remember exactly when your past sessions took place? Click on the “clients” tab above and you’ll probably find it!  I’ve uploaded all galleries from 2010 til now as a reminder – or just ask and I can remind you too!  This is a great way to get those images you’ve always wanted and display them in your home, just in time for lovely spring weather!

I had a great time with several families on Sunday afternoon, playing in the snow and capturing some fun images.  However, I’m hoping this was the last good snowfall we get this year… as pretty as it was, I’m ready for some warm and sunny days!  I’m sure many of you agree!

Snowy day sessions are a bit tricky, since the weather has to be JUST. RIGHT. But this weekend, even though we got about 6″ more snow than I thought we would, it was lovely and fluffy and even kind of warm outside, which made for a really fun time!

It got me thinking, though… how can we encourage the flowers to start blooming again, the snow to start melting, and the weather to warm up?! Spring is just a few weeks away (even though the weatherman keeps trying to make me feel better by saying that March 1st was the first day of “meteorological spring”) and I’m pretty sure we’re all ready for it now!

So if you’ve read this far, here’s the good news that I’m hoping will get us all in the spirit of springtime… a SPRING-CLEANING SALE! Yep, I think it’s time to dust off some old digital files and welcome spring with a sale at Sweet Pea Photography.
