It's that time of year!

Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, I allow my friends and clients to purchase a certificate for a FULL SESSION to be used in 2016, at a super discounted price. Gorgeous family photos at $125 off the regular price? Score! You can even choose to receive the paper certificate, and give it as a gift to a family or someone you love! Best. Present. Ever.

HERE'S HOW TO SCORE THE DEAL: This year's Black Friday deal will be available on Friday November 27th at 9:00 am PST. I will post a photo on the Facebook page ( and you must comment on that photo with your email address for the Paypal invoice. If you prefer not to post your email address, you may comment "Me!" or "Mine!" or something to that effect and then email to receive your invoice. If you comment on the post, but do not provide your email address in some form, you will not get the deal. All invoices must be paid by 9pm that day, Nov. 27. Any unpaid invoices will be cancelled and given to the next person on the waiting list. (Yes, there will be a waiting list!)

As for the terms of the session, it is for a full portrait session. That means you get an hour of shooting, on location, for up to five people, and you get all your final edited images in high resolution in a beautiful online gallery. This year, these sessions must take place within 15 miles of Orange County, and all sessions must be scheduled by October 31, 2016. (They don't have to take place before that date, but your date must be on the calendar by then.) It cannot be used for newborn or wedding photography, and it's limit 2 per family.

There will be a VERY limited number of certificates available. Last year, I bent the rules a little, and allowed more people to purchase this deal than usual, and some families had a tough time getting a date for their session. So in order to better serve everyone, I have to stick to my guns this year! I can't tell you exactly how many of the certificates there are, but they will go QUICKLY! So please, please be ready- I don't want those of you who wait and wait for this deal wo be disappointed!


Enjoy Thanksgiving with people you love, and I'll see you on Friday morning!

Crop top wedding gown, a shave ice bar, a bouncy house- what else do you need to start a marriage? Whatever your answer, these two had it. Congratulations, Alex and Paulette. What a kickoff.

Living in Europe, they had to rely on their family to help them pull together this day in Laguna Beach. All they knew was that they wanted to say I Do on the beach where she spent her childhood. The day that unfolded proved to be the most intimate, laid back, relaxed event I've been a part of. After their ceremony, they just talked and danced and laughed and hugged. No timeline. No coordinator. No rushing from one thing to another.

The bartender lost the ring. Then he found it. They lost her bracelet. Then I found it. It seemed every little hurdle, every little hiccup, just got taken in stride. With their eyes on the important stuff, they accomplished what every bride and groom strive to do-

They just sat in the moment, and soaked it all in.

In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, and the bridge to our future.

Well, I can practically smell the turkey and mashed potatoes cooking, so that means just one thing....


It's almost time for our Annual Black Friday Sale! 

As a public service announcement, portrait prices will be going up a tad starting January 1. (From $299 to $325)


So, that means this year's deal is an even hotter commodity!


Here's the lowdown:


On Friday, November 28, from 9am PST to midnight PST, you can purchase a FULL session for $189- to be used any time before December 31, 2015. You can buy one for your own family, give one as a gift, even buy multiple sessions. Quantities are limited, and once they sell out, there are no more available for purchase. I can't tell you how many there are, but I will give you heads up on the Facebook page when we are getting close. 


How does it work?

At 9:00 am, PST, I will post a banner photo on the Facebook page, and if you want to purchase one (or more) just comment on the post with your email address. (If you prefer to keep your email address private, you can comment with the number you'd like to purchase, and email me directly at STEPHANIE@INTUITIVEIMAGESPHOTOGRAPHY.COM. A Paypal invoice will be sent to you- all invoices must be paid for by midnight, or they will be canceled. 


This session may be used for family, maternity, baby, senior, couples, anniversary sessions, but are NOT valid for newborns or wedding photography. 


I had quite a few families that didn't get this deal last year, so plan ahead! Enjoy Thanksgiving with your family (take lots of pictures!) and I'll see you on Friday.
