ZW Clients help others for the holidays

ZoomWorks ran a holiday portrait special to help our local animal shelter collect some much-needed supplies and we just wanted to take an opportunity to thank all those generous families that showed up over the weekend to have fun with us and help homeless pets.

Looks like everyone will have some really fun holiday cards to send out this year and we know that the shelter greatly appreciates the supplies and donations. Win, win! Thanks again, Athens. Your loyalty and selflessness has not gone unnoticed.

SWEET SUMMER MEMORIES

2013_newbornVEAL

This summer has been extraordinary – wild weather, crazy schedules and time rushing by in a flash. We are at the summer solstice for goodness sakes! Where did this month go?

Let’s stop the march of time for a moment and show off some of the precious faces we’ve been playing with.

Whether at a park, the family farm or in our studio, shooting children forces us to ‘be in the moment’ – certainly a perk in this rush rush world!

To All the Women in Our Lives

We wanted to say ‘thank you’ from the bottom of our hearts to all the women no matter the age, that we have had the pleasure of getting to know and work with over the years.  It has brought us so much joy, laughter and a few happy tears.  But we wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything.  Relationships are so very important, and we hope that in some small way we have enabled people we photograph an opportunity to hang on to special moments and stages of their lives.  It is returned ten fold.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and to really make her day you need to act now!  This year, give her a meaningful gift that she will truly treasure and it’s super easy for you! Our loyal clients have galleries full of favorite images through the years.  And though you may have some framed around the house, or an album or two displayed on the coffee table, how wonderful would it be to present her with ‘wearable art’ of her favorite moments!  We are offering two exclusive Kotori designs:  beautiful sterling silver charm bracelets with sterling silver photo charms, hand-made and waterproof.  And the best part is that you can add charms/images to it every year from new sessions, making it her most favorite piece of jewelry and a special heirloom to pass on!

Orders placed by April 23rd will be guaranteed for delivery by Mothers Day (after April 23 rush charges apply).  We can ship to any address.  We can help you decide which images will look best and handle the design and ordering for you all online.  Call today or send us an email and we’ll take care of the rest. 706-227-3777 or info@zoom-works.com

Jewelry not her thing, but pictures are? We have Z bucks in any denomination good towards any style portrait session (family, haute shots, corporate, pets, et al) and with the purchase of any Z-buck (no minimum purchase) by May 10th for Mother’s Day the recipient will also receive $50 off their art package.

What do all these gals have in common?  If you said ‘beauty’, you’d be right.  If you said ‘being sweet and considerate’, you’d also be right.  But if you said ‘they’re sisters’, you’d win the prize!!!!!!
We have had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family for years – and we look forward to many, many more opportunities for them to shine!

Family Portraits Don’t Have to be Staid

The families that come through our studio doors always bring with them a little sugar and sometimes a little spice like the Brenam family!!! It’s not always easy to convince family members to come in for a sitting, but it certainly doesn’t have to be serious and often the ‘outtakes’ are some of our favorite images.  It’s just great to get everyone together, feeling like having some fun, and taking part in the play called ‘It’s Our Life”.  The years go by so quickly – one moment they’re toddling around and the next thing you know they have their own Facebook page.   Slow down those years by freezing them in time.  And have fun with it.  We do!

Energetic Family Boasts Bright Colors and Big Fun

Let’s talk about family portraits.  We all know why they’re important, but how do you make them stand out?  This family session is a great example of how good colors and a few great props can go along way towards creating stand out portraits!

Pick color schemes that are fun and let the kids be playful in their wardrobe, keeping the adults in solids so that they don’t clash.  Here they used favorite reading books, a few fun stuffed animals and a home-made sign (family on a string!) to tie it all together – no pun intended.

And then set the tone on ‘playful’ so that individual personalities shine and you can really get a sense in the end of the ‘branches’ of the family tree.  We’ll be posting more ideas along these lines in the months to come, so stay tuned!  A heart-felt ‘thanks’ to the Labbo family for demonstrating all those great tips so beautifully.

HOLIDAY PORTRAITS A FAVORITE KEEPSAKE AND UNIQUE GIFT

The last days of summer are behind us and beach memories still swim in our heads.  School schedules are confining activities for families now, and it won’t be long before the holidays are upon us.  However, with the summer heat that we’ve had, a bit of cooler weather is going to be welcome.

Creating fresh, modern and very personal images for families to send out to their loved ones is key for us, whether it be an old-fashioned holiday card (we still love to give and get them) or an email note.  A strong emotional image is such a valuable keepsake, especially with lives as busy and stressful as they can be these days.  There will be ways to save money for everyone, so stay tuned for updates on our holiday portrait sessions and fabulous products, and thank you all for your continued support this year.
