“7 Reasons You Should Have Me Create Your Family Portraits Now

Don’t Pay Unless You’re Thrilled – FREE Clothing / Hair / Makeup Consultation – Expert Location Photography At No Extra Charge – Free Photographic Enhancement & Artwork – And That’s Just The Beginning…

Dear Friend,

Your family is changing so fast, isn’t it?  Your children (and yes, they will be your “children” even when they’re married and have kids of their own) are growing up, and becoming more like adults every day.  Don’t you wish you could just “freeze time” and hold these special moments forever?

My name is Charles LaBelle, and capturing wonderful family memories is what I’ve devoted my life to.  I’m a professional family photographer, but more than that, I’m just like you… I’m a family person.

We Can Stop The Clock.  Memories Are The Most Valuable Thing We Own.

     Capturing wonderful family memories is what I’ve devoted my life to.  I believe that to be really great at something, you have to focus on that one thing – and for me, that one thing is family photography.  Although I do other types of photography as well, about 85% of all the photography I do is family photography.

For 35 years, I’ve perfected my knowledge, style, and artistic expression through family photography.  And that’s why I’m writing this today.

If You’re Just Looking For A “Snap-Shot” Of Your Family To Use For Christmas Cards This Year, Stop Reading Now.

However, if the idea of a fine family portrait – one that truly captures the love and relationships you have with your family – a portrait that you will cherish for the rest of your life – if that idea appeals to you, then we really should chat.   In fact, did you know that there are indeed 7 things you should be SURE to look for when choosing a photographer to create your family portraits?

Call me on the phone – there’s no cost, and no obligation – and we can chat about your family portraits, and I can even give you tips on things to ask EVERY photographer you contact about this.  My studio number is 225-1642.  You can call any time, and if I’m not available, leave your name and number, and I’ll call you back as soon as possible.

The 7 Things You Should Look For In A Family Photographer – The Things You Didn’t Know To Ask…

     Before you choose the right photographer for you, there are some things you should know to look for.  These things will make the difference between a beautiful family photograph you will cherish forever, and an “okay” picture you will shove in a drawer to gather dust.

So, Here We Go!  The 7 Things That Make A Charles LaBelle Family Portrait So Special:

  1. “If you are not THRILLED beyond your expectations – if you don’t cry tears of joy when you look at the photographs – you don’t pay for them.”

No kidding, if you are not completely thrilled with your photographs, I will create additional images of your family for you at no charge.  I am absolutely committed to creating the finest portraits you have ever had (or ever will have) created.

  1. “If you choose to, I will meet with you personally BEFORE the photographs (at no extra charge) to help you with every decision – this insures you and your family will look perfect in your photographs.”

This is such an important step!  There are only a handful of photographers in America who do this, and I DON’T CHARGE YOU FOR IT!  I will meet with you before the session day to help you choose clothing, talk about location, help you with questions about hair and makeup, etc.  All of these things are vital to the creation of a great photograph!

  1. “You can have this photograph created ANYWHERE you like in the area, at no extra charge. No boring ‘painted background’ in a studio – you can have your photographs created outdoors, in your home, at the beach – wherever you like.  I’ll even help you decide on the perfect location.”

How personal is a photograph of your family going to be if it’s not created in a location that is beautiful and personal to you?  The location will be like an additional personality in your photograph.

  1. “I personally enhance every photograph I create.”

This goes SO FAR beyond “digital retouching” where a computer guy goes in and removes blemishes or touches up wrinkles.  This is so much more.  AT NO EXTRA CHARGE, we will st go over every inch of your portraits and give them another dimension of life.  Don’t worry, no one will EVER be able to tell that any enhancement was done to them, but this one step can take a good photograph and make it perfect.  I have been doing this for over 20 years.

  1. “Natural expressions are guaranteed – I not only have ‘focused’ (no pun intended) on my photography skills, but I’ve also mastered ways of working with subjects to get the best and most natural expressions every time.”

We’ve all seen photographs where the subjects looked fake and posed – and those photographs never look good.   Why have a family photograph created if your family doesn’t look natural?  There are a number of ways to insure that each of your family members look their best in the photographs.  And, I’ll give you a hint, I’ll NEVER make any of your family members “say cheese.”

  1. “Because of my own family, I understand how important these photographs will be to you.”

When I was growing up, we never had a nice family photograph created.  I only wish we’d had a photograph of all of us together created.  You see, I understand how much these photographs are going to mean to you, and I feel I have a huge responsibility to make them perfect for you.  I didn’t get into photography because it seemed like a surefire way to make money.  I got into photography because of my love for my family, and a love for helping other families capture the memories that will last a lifetime.

  1. “I will only do a MAXIMUM of 1 portrait sessions per day. What does this mean to you?  It means that I will never be rushing to get your session done so I can move on to the next.  Your photographs will be perfect, because I devote all my time and focus to your family.” 

This is so important!  Most photographers try to cram 5 to 10 sessions into one day!  That’s crazy!  They have about enough time to set up a couple lights, snap a few images, then fly out the door on their way to the next session.  I made the decision 40 years ago that I wasn’t going to work that way.  You get my undivided attention, and I’m not going to be rushing off to do another session, leaving you and your family with less-than-perfect portraits.  Anything worth doing is worth doing right.  I believe that 100%, and that’s why I’d rather do 1 great sessions a day, rather than 10 “okay” sessions.  It’s a matter of pride.  You’re trusting me with your family’s memories.  I take that responsibility VERY seriously.

So, What’s The Next Step?

The next step is a very simple and painless one.  Simply pick up the phone, and call me.  There’s no cost, and no obligation to speak with me on the phone.  I’ll answer any questions you may have.  I can give you an indication of what you could plan on investing for your family portraits.  And most importantly, I can find out specifics from you about what’s most important to you about these photographs.

This is a great time to work with me!  Fall offer beautiful weather and gorgeous foliage.

First, Your Child Takes His or Her First Step.  Next, Learns To Ride A Bike.  Later, Gets A Driver’s License.  Graduates from High School.  Gets Married.  Starts A Family Of His or Her Own.

These are precious times, and although things will change, this moment never has to slip from your fingers.

Don’t put this off.  You know how life is.  We put things off, and before we know it, everything has changed.  If your life is half as crazy as mine is, year after year you find yourself frustrated at the things you wanted to do, and never got done.  A family portrait is something you deserve.  And you deserve it now.

I look forward to hearing from you.
