More Sunflowers…

Another blog post containing sunflower photos. Why not? It’s my blog right? The fun part? Sunflower field #2 is ready next week so EVEN MORE SUNFLOWER SESSIONS to come!!!! I know you’re excited. I am excited. My husband? Not so much. He’s not such a fan. It will be ok though.

Meet Maddie. She’s getting ready to start her senior year of high school and she NAILED this sunflower session. There are more over on my facebook page. You should go like it to see them. I’ll wait.

Welcome back. I hope you enjoyed my Facebook page. 🙂

Have a great day reader.

Sunflowers 2019

I can’t get enough of sunflower fields. I love them. I leave them with way too many bug bites and ruined shoes but so worth it. I schedule my life around them when they are in bloom. For about 2 weeks each year, each sunflower field in my area becomes my absolute favorite place to be. I love when folks want to do photo sessions in the sunflowers, even if it does mean I have to share the beauty of the sunflower fields with others.

These siblings were hilarious during their session. We discussed farts, siblings, food and so much more. I laughed so hard the entire time. Thanks for looking!!!

Senior Session ~ Avery

This beauty had her senior session last week and oh my goodness!!! I knew during the session the photos were going to be special but they are SPECTACULAR!

Not only can you see this gal play volleyball and softball for her high school but she also volunteers for the local children hospital! Amazing! She is one of my senior reps and is KILLING it at her sessions. So happy to have found her.

Thanks so much for looking. Make sure to follow me on social media!

Tween Rep Program!

The Tween Rep Program is open to boys and girls between the ages of 8-12. No experience is necessary to be part of the program. All that is required is that you LOVE to have your photos taken and you (and / or your parents & siblings) are active on social media!

Before we go any further. There is a fee for this program. Why? In the past, “complimentary” photo sessions have resulted in missed appointments and a general lack of respect for my time. I put considerable prep time into planning sessions and I am looking for Reps who are enthusiastic and respect both my time and the process involved in putting a session together.

The fee is a minimal $40 per rep. This is less than half of the my current prices for a session and you will get a minimum of 2 group sessions and 2 individual sessions!!!!! That’s right! Wow! PLUS!!!! You have the chance to earn free sessions for your family and MONEY!

Once accepted into the Tween Rep Program, you (or your child if you are reading this as a parent) will be able to earn cash prizes for referrals to Mandy McGlothlin Photography. The first referral that results in a full prized paid session will earn you a family photo session at no charge. Every single referral (that results in a paid session) after that will earn you (or your child) $20! The more you refer, the more you earn. Simple!!!

Now, there are a few catches of course.

1. You must share your images from every session on social media. (Tween and or parents if tween isn’t on social media!!)
2. You and your family must like my Facebook & instagram pages!!!
3. You must agree to not share or promote any other photographer during the year!
4. You agree to respect my time and do your best to make every session a success by showing up on time and giving it your all!!!!
5. One Tween / Senior Rep per family.

Also, parents / guardians must sign a contract and model release so that I can use any images for advertising and promotional purposes.

So!!!! If you’re still reading and super interested here are a few more details!

I will accept a limited number of Tween Reps since this is the first time I’m offering!! The Tween Rep program will last from August of 2019 until May of 2020. There will be at least two group sessions and two individual sessions in my local area (Pekin, Bartonville, Peoria etc) offered. Each parent / rep will receive a private password protected gallery to view and download images from each session at no additional cost. The $40 investment is the only required spend for this program. You are welcome to purchase additional sessions and prints but not at all required nor will I pressure you into anything of the sort!!!

If you’re interested. Please go to my Facebook page HERE and send me a direct message and I will send you the application!

Make sure to share with anyone who may be interested!!!!

The Summer Begins…

I am not a fan of summer heat. I love the sunshine and the swimming! I love the vacations. I love the colors and fairs and outside activities. I do NOT love the heat! I’m just not a fan. I prefer under 70 degrees!

Luckily, these lovelies didn’t mind too much about the heat and ROCKED their mom & me sessions. I have only posted their previews on Facebook but I’m excited to edit the rest of the images! Stay tuned for more from these sessions!

First up was K. She brought her two beautiful daughters in matching dresses and the three of them were so amazing!! I look forward to more sessions with them!

K & her oldest daughter! So beautiful!!!

Next up was M! She and her little man (and her adorable baby bump) are repeat clients and I am so excited for maternity photos coming up! Smiles were abundant and they didn’t seem bothered at all by the heat (or the bugs!).

Take a look at this!!!!

M and her little man (and of course her adorable baby bump)!

Thanks for looking! Have a great day! I’ll try to blog more frequently!!

XOXO,
Mandy!

Playing catch up!

I always mean to blog after each session. So far, I have failed miserably. I apologize. I will do better. Well I will try to do better. 🙂

So, recently I captured a proposal. What a great time! I mean it was windy and pretty chilly but the images turned out beautiful and the love of the couple shines through!!!! Take a look:

You can’t even tell they’re freezing! haha!

Such a fun day. I captured my first proposal and I’m in love with the images. Win win!!

Thanks for looking! Check out my facebook :). Book me for a wedding. Either way, have a great Tuesday and I’ll do my best to blog more.

XOXO,
