Seeking Representatives for the Graduating Class of 2011

Filed under: Everything Else — candid reflections @ 4:29 pm

Are you interested in becoming a High School Senior Representative for Candid Reflections Photography?

As a Senior Representative you will receive exclusive, free studio and location sessions, rep cards, discounts, and other opportunities as a spokesperson for Candid Reflections Photography. The goal is for each Senior Rep to earn enough credits to get all of his or her prints and other purchases absolutely free! A maximum of two reps (one male and one female) from each high school will be accepted.

Benefits of being a Senior Representative:

  • A free on-location and a free studio portrait session
  • Slide show containing 10-15 photos for your personal sharing via Facebook, MySpace, ipod, etc.
  • Receive unlimited referral cards to share with friends (if you need more, just contact the studio) *Referral cards are business sized cards with your portrait on one side and your name and contact information for Candid Reflections Photography on the back side.
  • 10% off print orders

Referral Bonuses:

  • Receive $20 of credit towards purchases from your portrait session for each classmate referred by you. Example: 5 referrals are equal to $100 of credit towards purchases! (classmate must book and complete a session with Candid Reflections and all fees paid before this can be redeemed)
  • After your fifth referral you will receive an 8.5×11 hardcover book with 20 pages of photos- either full page photos or custom designed spreads.
  • After your tenth referral you will receive a 16×20 gallery wrapped canvas (can be down sized at no additional cost or upgraded for the difference between the 16×20 and the desired size.)
  • The referred classmate(s) must present a referral card in order to be eligible. All referred classmates will receive $25 dollars off of their print order.


  • All Senior Rep session(s) must be completed by August before the start of their senior year of high school.
  • A parent or a legal guardian of the Senior Rep must sign a model release which allows Candid Reflections to use your images for advertising purposes.
  • Referral bonuses will only be issued when a referred senior’s session is complete and paid for.

This excellent opportunity is available to students of the senior class of 2011- each high school campus will have a limit of 1male and 1 female representative and are chosen on a first come, first serve basis. E-mail your name, school, and a current picture of yourself to me at

Thank you for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you!

Behind the Scene

Filed under: Photography — candid reflections @ 9:52 am

On Saturday, I had the privilege of photographing the lovely sisters of Two Sisters Planning.  They were setting up for a beautiful wedding reception and invited me to come snap some shots of them in action.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching them at work.  Normally, when we work the same event,  at the time that Georgia and Bobbie are doing the kind of things you see in the pictures below, I’m off somewhere else taking pictures of the bride putting on lipstick, or the groom trying to find matching socks, or maybe we’re past all that and they’re laying eyes on each other for the first time that day.  I love my job and I can’t imagine a place I’d rather be than right there along with the bride and groom, enjoying the events of their magical day as it unfolds.  I’ll tell you what though, the weddings that I’ve photographed which have had these two lovely ladies behind them have been some of my favorites – the brides are relaxed and calm because they know that all is being taken care of by Bobbie and Georgia, I sure do love calm brides.  Not to mention the fact that the things that these sisters create are eye candy to my camera.  

It was such a pleasure to get a “behind the scenes” glimpse from Georgia and Bobbie’s perspective, as they are leading among the many key players involved in carrying out the perfect event/wedding.  These sisters have some mad organizational and creative “pull-it-off” kind of skills, I enjoyed this opportunity to capture them in action.

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now

Is hung with bloom along the bough.
