Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Ya, OK - I realize I am a wee behind on sharing this session.  But, better late than never, right?

I got a sort of panicky call-out on Facebook a couple of days after Christmas.  Some sort of mix-up had left a friend of a friend of a friend stranded with no photographer for their wee family reunion.  In my own haste to accommodate, I ended up leaving my light stand and umbrella behind and had to use a stack of Christmas CDs to create a cradle for my strobe, though admittedly, the handful of pictures I needed it for were pretty boring when it came to the main attraction: two delicious little girls with attitude, charm, and sass.  Thank you to my friend Renee for tagging me to take on this session, and thanks to the family for trusting me to come out and make it happen on such short notice.  All's well that ends well!

Without further ado:

Happy Family Day!

Hello, Friends!!!

Did you notice that my website got an overhaul in January?  Maybe you're even featured on the home page slideshow or on one of the gallery pages!  You should go look!  I'd like your help getting the word out and, in return, I'd like to help you celebrate Family Day by offering you a way to get your next session for as little as $100!!!


If you've had a session with me before, find a favourite picture from one of our sessions or if you have NOT had a session with me before, please drag any one of the pictures from this blog post to your desktop and share it on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook (or all three!) with the new website www.hopewalls.ca (follow or add me if you need to!)  Make sure you @ or tag me and use the hashtags #yegphotographer #pictureLOVEtm #hopewalls so I know this step was completed.

Congratulations - you've just earned $75 off any regularly priced 2017 session!


Commit to booking a regular session any time before December 2017.  This requires sending me an email deposit of $100 towards your session.  Use the Contact Me form up there in the top right of the links bar and I will send you payment information.

Congratulations - you have just earned another $75 off any regularly priced 2017 session!


Refer a friend or family member who has NOT had a session with me before and get them to commit to any regularly priced session.  Again, this requires that they send me an email deposit of $100 towards their session.  Get your friend or family member to use the Contact Me form up there in the top right of the links bar and make sure they mention your name when they book - once both of you have paid your deposit, you will earn an additional $100 credit, which you can choose to either a) get your session for just $100 or b) share the savings with the person you referred and you'll each pay just $225 for a regularly priced session.

The Fine Print:

This deal cannot be combined with any other offer.  This deal only applies to regular full-priced sessions however it may be redeemed for a pre-scheduled theme session when applicable - ask for details when you book.  You cannot refer each other to double the deal.  You can purchase both sessions for $450 and use both yourself or share one as a gift.  The $100 deposit is non-refundable however it is transferable and does not expire.  All sessions must be booked by April 30, 2017 and completed prior to December 31, 2017 with the exception of weddings, which can have the discount applied to December 31, 2018.  

here, puppy puppy puppy!!!

Say Hello to Arizona and Little Grey.  These pretty little girls are being fostered until they are ready to find a fur-ever home.

Like all dogs, they have very unique and distinct personalities.  Miss Arizona is definitely a cuddler - she likes to climb right up onto you lap and bury her muzzle in the crook of your arm.  

She's affectionate and gentle and will make someone a very loyal and kind companion. 

Little Grey is playful and energetic - a true character.  This tiny girl will have no problem growing into her big personality.

When she's not busy with her adorable puppy antics, Little Grey is as sweet as she is playful.

These girls aren't quite ready to get adopted yet, but if you're interested in finding a new furbaby, I encourage you to contact the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society and check out their other adoptable friends!  In the meantime, can I get a collective, "Aaaaaawwwwwwww!"
