Introducing the “Who I Am” Project for Tweens (ages 10-15)

SQ Tween slide 1

Sherri’s Portraits is very excited to introduce the “Who I Am” Project for Tweens (ages 10-15)!  This project just touches my heart at it’s very core because I really had a tough time and struggled during my tween years…I was very “chubby”, as my Mom called it, and came home from school in tears almost every single day.

The tween years are especially hard for girls, and I can’t even imagine what it’s like with all the social media in this day and time! So I came up with a plan:

I decided to create a Tween Session that makes these girls feel like a Rock Star!  They are photographed in a few of their favorite outfits just like a Top Model…their favorite music is playing, fan blowing their hair and everything!  They just love it, and I love the way it makes them feel…here’s just one message we received:

But the BEST part of this whole project is the SECRET!!!  The tween doesn’t know it, but we’ve sent out emails to the parents with detailed questionnaires for them, and others, to fill out and send back to me.

That’s where the magic comes in!  I take all that info and create a slide show with their images PLUS all the quotes for the most amazing moment for the Tween AND the parents!!

So if you have a Tween, or know someone that does, give us a call…you won’t believe what a difference it will make!!!

Our first Senior Excursion is on Monday evening, May 16th, from 5:30-8pm at a beautiful Plantation in the Cobb County area. White columns, lush gardens, ivy covered walls and a gazebo make this the perfect location for formal attire. Limited to 1-2 more seniors.   $50

Next will be our Excursion to a warehouse in Atlanta on Sunday, May 22nd. This warehouse has two stories, plus the rooftop, that we’ll be using…and graffiti walls and alleys are right around the corner for a very industrial look.   $125

Old Car City will be our destination for the Excursion on Friday, June 17th. With 34 acres of old cars, trucks, buses (and just about anything else you can imagine!) we’ll find plenty of spots just for you.   $125

**EVENT:  (these are located at our studio)  Saturday, July 9th ~ If you want something to keep you cool, check this out!  We’ll have a “Rain Machine” set up for some really edgy B&W images. Think sports, band or just getting wet …anything goes with this one!   $50

In July we’ll also have a new Excursion we call “Extreme Pool at Night”.  You heard that right, and you won’t believe the images you’ll get with this!   $99

Ready for a trip to the Beach? Then save the date for Jekyll Island and the Driftwood Beach on Saturday, October 1st. Come join us and wiggle your toes in the sand…but schedule this one quick. Limited to 2 seniors only.   $125

If you’re wanting some cooler temps, we’ll be traveling in the Fall for an Excursion to some waterfalls in the mountains…and maybe an old mill as well.   $125

2015 High School Senior Lexi / Atlanta Senior Photography

3 outfits for blog 600

Can you believe it’s already time for the Class of 2015 to be selecting their Senior photographer?  Sure, you’ll be going to the school photographer for the photos in your yearbook, but what about all the really cool, fun places and things that you actually want to do for your Senior Portraits?  Well, we’ve got just what you want at Sherri’s Portraits.

We actually sit down with you for a consultation to find out about you… what you like to do, things you’re involved in and places you want your Senior Portraits taken.  See, we don’t want to photograph any Senior the same- we want your session to be all about YOU!
We’ll even go over what outfits you’ll be wearing to help you choose the best ones to give you the most variety possible.

Not sure what to wear? Just look what Lexi from Kennesaw Mountain High School chose for her recent studio session. She is killer good at softball, so we did some phenomenal dramatic images with some of her gear. Then she switched it up with a fun, casual outfit including shorts and boots. Finally she pulled out the glitter and voila… we had a Fashion Diva in the studio! What a blast!

We’re already getting calls from 2015 Seniors, but there’s also time for any 2014 Seniors that just weren’t happy with the photos they got earlier in the year.
So give us a call at 770-529-1410 and we’ll set up a consultation just for you. See you soon!

 

15 Minutes & Dandelion Wishes | Atlanta Portrait Photographer

This was a spur-of-the-moment photo shoot – sometimes you just stumble upon a great location and have to take advantage of it!

We had hoped to get a few pictures of Adam and Mari when they were in town visiting with us but we were really pressed for time. We spotted this field of dandelions (make a wish!) in historic downtown Kennesaw and decided it would make a sweet, scenic backdrop!

Fifteen minutes later we had some beautiful images of this sweet couple!

Sometimes all you need is 15 minutes, an experienced photographer and a field full of dandelions.

We hope YOUR day is full of dandelion wishes!

(By the way, is one of your wishes for a free family portrait session? Because we can absolutely make that one come true- see the details here!)
