I’m so excited to announce my newest venture. We don’t talk about it much. But Jim Kennedy Photographers has been photographing families as long as we’ve been shooting weddings. Now I’ve become part of a company that is taking family photography to a whole new level. Wouldn’t you love to have some beautiful outdoor portraits taken of your family and be able to own the images from the shoot. Even better than that. Own a disk of enhanced images in color,black & white and sepia. All printable files that you can have printed at a local lab. Even better you could have them printed right at a Costco near you. Well as you will read below. Now is the time to book your family portraits. Read on to find out more about this amazing company I’ve become a part of for family portraits. If your a Costco member you will be even more excited to get this family portrait session at an even better price.
It’s not often that I pester EVERYONE I KNOW for help, but this year I’ve partnered up with a new company Family Tree Photographers.
Family Tree Photographers (http://www.neversaycheese.com) has been given a tremendous opportunity; one of those rare once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, by Costco Wholesalers.
I personally love being a part of this new business. Family Tree Photographers decided to redesign a family photography business that doesn’t only fulfill a need, but also wants. For example, I know after years of shooting family photos what families want these days! They want their photos outdoors at their favorite parks or beaches, by an independent, talented photographer… and they want the high resolution photo CD. So wouldn’t it make sense that if you could provide both in one photography package that people would love it?
Turns out Costco agrees with us, as they have been thinking a lot about how to offer family photography without lowering themselves to the likes of K-Mart Portrait studios! And after about 9 months of going back and forth with their corporate headquarters in Seattle, they have finally given Family Tree 4 stores – two in Denver, CO and two in Orange County, CA to see if we can prove to them that our unique model works indeed. Between the 4 stores, we have just 40 days (10 days per store) to show them what we can do on a national scale. THIS is where we can use your help!
HOW YOU CAN HELP (there are two ways you can help!)
Please see our locations and dates below. If you have been thinking about family photography, now is a great time! In Colorado and California, we have reserved our most talented photographers for these shoots, as we want to make an extra good impression on Costco. Costco members are saving about 30% off of our family photo sessions, too so it’s a great deal!
Don’t need family photos? You can stop in and purchase a session as a gift for someone special in your life! It makes a great gift.
Finally, and something I hope everyone can help with, email everyone you know, and help us create a buzz! Of course we don’t believe in spam but if you feel so inclined to email everyone you know with a link to this blog post, that would be great! The power of numbers is no joke.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT FAMILY TREE
I have kept this business under the radar for 2 years now, trying not to talk it up too much, but it’s a brilliant new concept in family photography. We have positioned our business as “Photography for Today’s Family”. So I am proud to finally stop keeping secrets and tell you all about it.
Our goal is to create a new household name in family photography! When you think about indoor portrait photography, chances are, you think “Olan Mills”,K Mart or Wall Mart. When you think about outdoor family photography, we hope that someday in the near future, no matter where in the USA you are, you will think “Family Tree”!
I truly believe that this concept will take off for many reasons:
Our photographer network is nation-wide, and already we have talented “up-and-coming” photographers working for us, from New York to Laguna Beach, CA and everywhere in between.
We specialize in outdoor photography. This is great for kids! Indoor portrait studios often scare kids and they won’t sit still in a dark studio. Outside, we actually encourage kids to run and play. Meanwhile our photographers are photographing them, being exactly who they are. You just can’t do that in a studio. In a studio you are forced to “say cheese”.
We are ready to put an end to holding photo CD’s hostage and trying to force customers into purchasing crazy fees for a print that you know you could get on your own at, say… COSTCO for a sliver of the cost! And to take it to the next level, we give our clients full rights to the images, ready to print in COLOR, BLACK AND WHITE, AND SEPIA. So 3 versions of each image. Just bring your photo CD back to Costco and get great enlargements for a matter of dollars.
If you have any other questions, please give me a shout, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org I hope to hear from you, and more importantly, see you at Costco in the next couple weeks!
