Family Portraits 2014

Three of many reasons to get family portraits done this year.

1. You love your family and want them to have memories of you all together, and/or of the kids as they grow – for yourself, for your kids, and for your grandkids.

2. You have just realized they are pumping Christmas music at EVERY store you walk into already – because of course it is not Halloween anymore.  You suddenly realize you haven’t started Christmas shopping yet… well – photos are a great gift for family and grandparents.

3. You are looking through photo albums… and your 6 year old asks why you have 5 albums of you and your dogs, cats, lizards & fish…etc… but there is only 2 pages of them.  Whoops… time for more photos of your kids!lol

Of course I would love to see you for portraits any time of year!!!  Contact us to schedule your session at
jennyb@fototails.com or call 720-566-9770

We still have a few openings through November and the first week in December 2014!

Here ya go – a heads up for OCTOBER 2014. SO… because everyone has their own favorite charity for their own special reason, here is the deal for OCTOBER 2014.  I have decided for the entire month of October… you make a $150 donation to the charity of your choice(or more)… and let us know which charity it is (with all their contact info to post about on our blog) and I will photograph your 90 minute studio session (Denver studio only) for FREE. Yep… that’s it – simple… and it doesn’t require dumping any ice water on your head. Contact jennyb@fototails.com to book your date/time or call us at 720-566-9770.
Or…
Because I happen to love one specific charity in particular. For any $150 donation (OR MORE) you make to the Chordoma Foundation in memory of Tiffany Otto-Cragin in Sept or October 2014. I will photograph your 90 minute session for FREE and give you a $100 print credit.

Mommy make-overs

It’s not about being someone different.  It’s about giving you a couple of hours of quiet time, away from the hustle and bustle of kids, jobs, housework, and making time for just you.  The holidays are coming up and we are adding more Hot Mommy days coming in November & December.  So click here and check us out on Facebook to get the latest on Hot Mommy day specials!  Then come in for a mini make-over, enjoy some quiet time or bring a friend or two, and relax with a snack and then a photo-shoot.  And, why stop there right?  Make it a night out with your special someone or with your amazing group of girls to show off you feeling your best.

Our favorite stories.

January

January 2013

About a year ago we decided that we would do a calendar project to benefit a children.  We finally have our first calendar complete.  It was our first year – and after all of the work and organizing put into it…. Jenny up and says… “so… are we doing this again next year?”  Of course me… “I think so.”…. Jenny “Because if we are, I think I need to start on that NOW.”

Ok… enough said I think with that – it was obviously a huge project and took a ton of people, organizing, prop shopping and construction, photography time, editing time.  But in the end – yes, my first thoughts is OF COURSE we will do it again for a 2014 calendar because it was just way too much fun not to.

We had great little subjects who participated.

Then of course we had a few very gracious vendors that supported some of our shoots too.

Anything But Vanilla was amazing with some cupcakes in the “Everything nice” shoot.  She makes some of the most amazing flavors of cakes & cupcakes I’ve ever tasted.

Cake Pandemic – Christine Godsey Black 720-235-2008 made us a BUNCH of pies for the Little Jack Horner shoots.  They were so yummy, and looked beautiful… that is before the boys dug in and destroyed them upon command!lol

Kimber at Kim’s Designs is my go to tutu vendor.  Amazingly creative and custom makes tutus for our shoots.  I can’t say enough about her work.

Dizzie Izzie makes amazing pedi-skirts and much more.  The kids just love twirling in them!!!

And then my thought catcher & arranger and set designer too: Jenny Bonfiglio
