I offered this in January this year and it had a good response. The families I've met are wonderful. There's something to be said for meeting the mama before she has the baby. I took a couple of maternity classes this summer with the amazing and talented Ana Brandt, world renowned newborn and maternity photographer. I felt like I was falling flat with my maternity sessions and she helped me find new inspiration and some beautiful new dresses as well.
Do you know, if you have a maternity session with me, I offer dresses for you to wear at no extra cost. Maternity sessions are usually $175 on their own and the newborn sessions start at $275, so together they're $450. My deal until September 16th is my mid-sized package which is the $375 package and includes 20 digitals. So what a deal!
The complementary maternity session includes 10 maternity digitals, All this, plus the use of my gowns for FREE with the purchase of a newborn session for $375. WOW!
Happy September. What a great summer it's been here at Millie Dee Photography. I photographed a record number of newborns and visited a few new beaches with my family including Asbury Park, which is actually new to them, not me; we also visited Outer Banks for the first time ever. We stayed in a town called Duck, and yes, it was beautiful, the sunsets were breathtaking and we of course at the donuts, too.
That was the last week of summer. We came back and it was a rush to do back to school shopping then of course school started and this week is my kids' first full week of school.
With having a few hours back during the days now, I've started planning our mini photosession for the fall and holiday season for this year.
I've obtained a permit to Waterloo Village and am so excited to be photographing in that beautiful space, I haven't been there to work in 7 years and it is absolutely beautiful, so i'm happy to be offering this area to my clients. I'm also planning a day at the State Park in Hopatcong, NJ. Its on the water, the lake and fall foliage make a beautiful backdrop for portraits.
If anyone is interested in booking, the Dates are October 5 & 19th so far. You can email me for availability: 973.668.9861 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
