BHS & JDA : Prom 2014

Wow, it’s hard to believe that prom is just around the corner. I have been asked by small groups over the last few years to take some portraits before they head out for the night – and it couldn’t be more fun. Each student is beaming, full of excitement, and truly looks beautiful. If you are wanting some portraits taken this spring, check out the dates and locations below.

Please email me dattomastudios@gmail.com for more information and I will be sure to put you on my list!

JDA PROM: Friday night, March 28. Portraits begin at Barnwell State Park at 3pm.

BHS PROM: Friday night, April 11. Portraits begin at Sweetwater Country Club at 3pm.

Check out the pictures below from a few of my groups last year!

Spring Children’s Portraits

What an incredibly strange winter we’ve had!! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some consistent sunshine & warm weather! So, in order to celebrate that SPRING IS COMING, I thought I’d announce the dates for my annual Spring Children’s Portraits. If you haven’t signed up before and would like to see some of my work from last year : check it out HERE, HERE & HERE!

The sessions are only 20 minutes long per child, but I ASSURE you, that is plenty of time to get some great shots. I guarantee 20 – 30 final portraits per child, but I average many more than that even in this short time frame. You will receive released rights & an online gallery where you can easily order prints, although (as always) there is no obligation to do so.

 

What’s the investment? Only $55 per child!! (If you have 4 or more children, the price drops to $40 per child!). That adds up to be barely more than $1 per image + the entire 20 minute session!! This is my best price on individual portraits all year – so don’t miss out!!

Also, one FINAL BONUS included this year – forward a link to this blog post to friends & family (or like below to post on fb) and automatically receive a free 8×10 when you sign up for a time slot!

 

Sessions are being offered at the times and locations listed below. SIGN UP HERE!! (I will email you to assign a time slot, or you can email me to see if the time you need is still available: dattomastudios@gmail.com)

Montague Wedding : Sumter, SC

This past spring I was honored to assist my friend and colleague Megan Manus with a wedding in Sumter, South Carolina. Megan and I consistently send client referrals back and forth (which I am so grateful for!) but this was our first opportunity to shoot together. It was a beautiful day and I’m thankful to finally be able to share these photos with you!!
