There is so much fun stuff going on at this event, that we don’t even know where to start!  The Frosted Family Event is taking place at the brand new Olathe Community Center on June 28, 2014.  Admit it, parents, you want to go just get a sneak peak of this super cool new place.  There will be Chick-Fil-A menu items for sale at this Frosted Event, and we will be there taking pictures of your kids with their favorite characters, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna.

Let me repeat that, QUEEN ELSA and PRINCESS ANNA will be there!!!

We hope to see ALL of our wonderful Portraits Today Studios customers there having a GREAT time with their kiddos.

olathe photographersWHO?
Any young lady who has ever dreamed of being a princess or fairy can come on in and take advantage of this very special photo set we will have for this event.  Think flowers and ferns and rocks, etc.  It’s going to be beautiful. Ages 3-8 seem to be the ages that this event is the most popular with. But you be the judge for your little one.

We have a wide variety of tiaras, magic wands and a few wings and butterflies and even a few dresses. However, we really encourage you to come in with your special dress already on.  Some young ladies go and get princess dresses right off the shelves of Target or Wal-Mart and others have their grandmothers make the dresses.  It’s whatever you like.

June 20-22 is when we’ll have this special photo set.  It’s only for those three days!!!  So don’t miss out.

Come on.  If you are a customer of ours you know there is almost never a sitting fee.  (Unless you have four legs and pant a lot.)

We will have a special package for this event.

Go ahead and book your appointment sooner than later.  The good times fill up quickly. 

For your little princess, a special photo event.

Portraits in the Park is an event where you reserve a time to meet Chris at one of our local parks here in Johnson County, Kansas.  You need to arrive on time because appointments start on the half hour and end on the half hour.  But what better way to get fun, spontaneous pictures of you and your family?  The trees will be budding.  The flowers will be blooming.  There won’t be any rain.  (We hope!)

This year we will be meeting at one of two different Kansas City area parks.

April 26, 2014 – Antioch Park in Merriam, Kansas
Yes!  This is our favorite park and judging by how popular this park is with our customers, it’s yours, too.

May 3, 2014 – Downtown Olathe
Wow! Have you seen the new fountains down there?  Have you seen the great brick backgrounds?  We’ve taken several families’ pictures down there and they turn out great.  Plus, it’s close and convenient to many of our customers and parking is easy.

Call today to reserve your time.  913-782-7427

Since this is a special event, we require the location fee of $35.00  per family to be paid at the time of your reservation.  The fee is fully refundable up to one week before your session.  It’s then 50% refundable up to 3 days before your event.  Inside 3 days from your scheduled appointment we can only refund your fee if we can find another client for your time slot, but we’re happy to try.

This is a first come, first booked, outdoor portrait event. You must register by phone and pay your event deposit at the time of registration.  Please do not register a time if you are not able to pay the $35.00 at the time of registration, as that has caused problems in the past.

Portraits Today Studios is known for our convenient portrait package pricing.  Our regular pricing is in effect.  The only additional cost for this Portraits in the Park event is the location fee paid at the time you make your reservation.

Keep in mind that our Late Spring special will be (1) 8×10′s, (2) 5×7′s and 16 wallets of 1 pose for just $19.95!  In addition, 16×20′s will be offered at 25% off our regular pricing.

Chicks and Bunny Easter Pictures 2014 http://www.portraitstodaystudios.com/2014/01/29/chicks-and-bunny-easter-pictures-2014/ http://www.portraitstodaystudios.com/2014/01/29/chicks-and-bunny-easter-pictures-2014/#comments Wed, 29 Jan 2014 18:43:47 +0000 http://www.portraitstodaystudios.com/?p=3719 live baby chicks bunny picturesWe are so looking forward to our annual pictures with live baby chicks and a bunny here at PTS.  Ducks will also be making a one time appearance here this year!

Oreo, our bunny will be arriving at our studio on or about March 12, 2014.

The first set of baby chicks will be arriving March 14, 2014.

Both the baby chicks and Oreo will stay at PTS through Easter, which is April 20th.  (Portraits Today Studios will be closed that day in respect of what that day represents.)

Baby ducks will be at our studios Friday, March 21  thru Sunday, March 23…ONLY.

child photographyFor planning purposes, know that Spring Break for the Olathe, Spring Hill, Blue Valley and Shawnee Mission school districts is primarily March 17 – 21 (slight variations on length from district to district).  That way you can bring the little people in during the day and not miss school.  We’ll be fully staffed as these times fill up rather quickly.

Our pricing for these pictures is the same as it always is.  These photos are just so much fun to do. We’ll have Easter Cards available at a special price and we’ll probably run some sort of special on enlargements as well, stay posted for that.  New backgrounds will also be available by then.

Book your appointments sooner than later, especially if you are looking for a time on Saturday or Sunday.  This is a very popular event and space is limited.  See you soon!

What happens to the Bunny and Chicks after they are done at the studio?  Great question.  The bunny, Oreo, lives with Chris at his house year round as he’s done since 2010.  He spends most of his time hiding from the dogs and kids.

The baby chicks and ducks are given to farms around the rural Kansas City area.  There are two different farmers that like to have them though once in a while they have received enough and so we’ll give them away to other farmers that answer our ads.  We don’t destroy them or “let them loose”.

Book your appointment today.

Chris had the pleasure on Sunday to visit the Kansas Jayhawks with his daughter, Emma.  Emma is a member of the Olathe Special Olympics basketball team.  She loves basketball…and the Jayhawks.   Each year, thanks to Kansas Special Olympics and the Wilt Chamberlain Foundation, the Kansas Jayhawks hold a clinic for Special Olympics athletes.  As the father of an athlete and as a guy that knows how to use a camera, he thought he’d have a little fun and share some fun sports photography.

“How much?  That’s great!”

Just heard that again this morning.  See, the great thing about our baby club is all our photo packages are 30% off after you join our club at just $39.95.  See all the details on our baby club page.

If you know of someone having a baby we find that our Baby Club Gift Certificates make a great baby shower gift.  And be sure to tell them that if they want terrific newborn pictures to bring that baby in here before they are a week old.  That way they are still all in a ball and the pictures turn out even cuter.  :)

Explore our page or give us a call should you have any questions.
