jump up and get down. pop-up fall dates announced!

aszichild_pop-up_201447-2By golly our schedule  for the next few months is filling faster than I can keep up. To help tame the madness I have a few dates reserved for our pop-up mini shoots. This is my effort to help you collect awesome pictures of your offspring because hey, YOU MADE HIM/HER/THEM! And, this is a chance to get a quick family portrait for your holiday card…while the focus will be on the kiddos I know you want something with all of you in it too!

The basics:
A 20-30 minute portrait session for up to two kids (max) aged 6 months to 6 years (ish). If you have more than two kids you’ll need two sessions. We’ll have a preset backdrop and lighting set up for all studio shoots and we’ll use natural light for all outdoor shoots (see below).

The dates:
Sessions happen on the hour between 9am and 3pm and time slots must be reserved in advance. Additional days may be added based on demand and availability.

Sept 13th | Location: Studio in Emeryville
Oct 12th | Location: Outdoors, weather permitting (exact location TBD)
Oct 26th | Location: Studio in Emeryville **this will be a Halloween costume themed shoot (SO FUN!) but before the costumes come on we can do a normal family portrait with a gray background.
Nov 1st | Location: Outdoors, weather permitting (exact location TBD)

How much and what do I get?
$200
20-30 minute session
Private online gallery with 10-15 photos
5 high resolution digital files for download
15% off print purchases

Location:
Our studio loft space in Emeryville or outside as noted above.

Tell me more:
Session fee due at the time of booking to reserve your time. The fee is non-refundable. From the online gallery you will choose your 5 favorites photos and send your selects to me.  I will electronically send you the high resolution digital files for you to download. The download will include a permission to print release for personal usage only (copyright still belongs to me). Turn around time for the digital files will be three weeks from the shoot date.

Snap, can’t make it on the dates above, will you be doing this on any other days?
Potentially. We’ll see how the demand is and how much insanity I can handle over the next few months. Email me if you are interested and can’t make it and I’ll get a sense for need. More pop-ups to come.

Give it to me! How?
Email ali[at]aszichild.com and let me know:

1.) Your name and the name/s and age/s of your offspring. Two kids max per each session. If you have more than two kids you’ll need two sessions.

2.) The date you wish to reserve.

3.) Your top three picks for time slots in order of preference (i.e. 9am, 11am or 1pm). Reservations are made on a first come first served basis and will start on the hour.

At a very young age I lost site of my mom in a local grocery store in Boulder, Colorado. I did, however, have the smarts to go to the customer service counter. The kind woman at the counter asked "What is your name little girl?" My reply: "Assi." The woman gave me a look like, "Are you playing with me you little devil?" but she proceeded to blast on the loudspeaker the "We have a lost Assi at the front of the store." Customers throughout the store gagged and giggled, but my mom knew exactly who the woman was referring to: the mullet haired little girl with a tongue too big for her mouth, wearing a leotard, skirt, tights, and jelly shoes (with florescent green laces in them...even though they didn't need the laces). A shy little character for whom every little detail in life was a huge thing. I am pleased to report that today I am able to fully pronounce Allison (aka Ali), but the Assi pseudonym has always stuck, evolving into Aszi. As for the shy little character for whom every little detail in life was a huge thing? Some things never change. I have closed my comments due to mass amounts of spam that no filter could ever control. Feel free to contact me abeckord [at] gmail.com!
