Sweet Deal … my partner thinks I’ve lost my mind!

Posted on July 26, 2009. Filed under: Image Posts, Special Offers |

Okay folks, here’s the deal… we have five days until the end of the month. My partner bet me that I couldn’t book 20 new sessions by August 1st. BUT, she didn’t say what I could or couldn’t do to book those sessions!

Soooo, I am making an offer to you to wave our $250 session fee from now until midnight on July 31st.

No, you didn’t read that incorrectly… our standard session fee is $250, but if you call and book a session by 11:59pm on July 31st, I am offering to do your portrait session for free! Does this seem crazy or too good to be true? I guarantee you that it’s not. You see, I just hate to lose, lol.

And to sweeten the deal even more, if you call and book your session and then have your friends and family call to book their sessions, I’ll give you a $25 credit towards prints and other products for every referral!

Now, just so you know a little about us in case you’re new to the studio, and so that you don’t think that I’m just some crazy woman…

My name is Lora McKnight. I am the co-owner and principle photographer for Life Prints Portrait Design. I have been a photographer for over twenty years and specialized in Maternity and Newborn photography for three years with my studio in Boise, Idaho before moving to Portland in September 2008. I now have a partner, Sue, who is my get it done woman (in other words, I’m the flighty creative one and she pretty much keeps us organized and moving forward!) As you can tell, I’m pretty easy going and LOVE what I do.

Because we just re-established our business here in Portland after the move from Idaho, we have some spaces in August to fill. And I’ve decided that I’m ready to start August with a bang! Thus my crazy offer to completely wave our session fee for the next week. Here are the details of what you need to do to take advantage of this offer…

So, what do you think? Does this still seem too good to be true? I guess there’s only one way to find out… call us now (and help me win my bet with the “get it done woman“!) I promise you’ll be glad you did! 


And remember…  Life is Beautiful

The Art of Fine Art…

Posted on July 20, 2009. Filed under: Articles, Image Posts |

While it’s true that Uncle Jim can take the pictures of your wedding day and do a pretty decent job, one of the things that we strive to do is create images for you that rise above “pretty decent”.  You have spent months and months planning every detail of this day.  And it’s those details that matter when it’s time to look back at your wedding book years from now.  What are you going to remember, and more importantly, how are you going to remember it?  Is “pretty decent” what you are looking for… or do you want to remember the magic? 

When it’s time to look for a wedding photographer, you are going to have a lot of choices.  You will find many, many photographers out there who are good at what they do (as well as a number who may be just getting started!)  You’ll find a broad range of prices and packages, styles and personalities.  So take the time to sit down and prioritize what parts of your wedding are the most important to you.  If you decide that your wedding photography is at or near the top of your list, then we ask you to take the time to meet with us so that we can show you the difference that we can make in capturing this once in a lifetime day.

July End of Month Special… Don’t miss out!

Posted on July 17, 2009. Filed under: Special Offers |

Hi Folks! 

I just wanted to let you know about a couple of great offers that we’ve got going for the end of July. 

First is for our portrait clients.  If you book a session between now and July 31st, we are going to DOUBLE your product credit that comes with your session.  That’s right… DOUBLE … 2X the regular amount.  So for the price of your session ($250) you are going to get a full color bound proof book as well as $150.00 product credit.  That is an amazing deal that you don’t want to miss out on!  And we are almost completely booked for the rest of July and first half of August… so don’t wait to call to set up your consultation and get your session booked. 

Our second special is for our clients interested in booking a wedding or commitment ceremony.  If you reserve your date with us by August 1st, we are going to give you $250.00 off of one of our wedding collections.  Just call us for your wedding consultation, we’ll meet with you to answer all of your questions and then with your paid reservation fee we will instantly knock $250 off of the wedding collection you choose! 

We know our valuable clients are the life blood of our business and we want to reward you for sharing your experiences with us with your friends and family… or even strangers for that matter!   For every referral that books with us that gives us your name, you’ll receive a $25.00 Life Prints gift card which you can use towards your own portraits or event.  And there’s no limit to how many gift cards you can redeem.  So don’t forget to pass this along to your friends and family so that you can earn some thank you’s from us!

Everyone have a great weekend, and remember…  Life truly is Beautiful

PDX Pride 2009

Posted on July 11, 2009. Filed under: Image Posts |

I wanted to throw a few pictures up here from the Uh Huh Her concert at Portland Pride 2009.  We were invited by the Pride Board to do the photography for the concert and wanted to thank them for that opportunity.  It was a fantastic concert and it was GREAT to see so many people there.  I’ve had plenty of people asking to see some pictures of Leisha, so here’s a couple of them.

And no Madison, you can’t hide behind Angela at the ceremony!
