Teeny Weeny Wiebs #1 - Laundry!
Friday, June 12, 2009 - Teeny Weeny Wiebs SessionsWell it's finished! The first installment of the all new Teeny Weeny Wiebs sessions is finished! Each month we will pick one day to do "mini shoots" that are themed. The shoots will last only 15 minutes each and only cost $25 for the session! Joel and I will be coming up with fun new ideas for the themes each month. Some of the sessions will be for kids, some for pets, some for adults - some for all ages! Yes, we are going to try and do this every month! A lot of work, but we are really excited to do some of these fun ideas we have been storing up now that we have a studio to shoot in.
So this first month we did a laundry theme and all of the kids had a blast! They were all so easy to work with and I think we amazed a lot of the parents. I know I heard whispers from some of the parents - "What can they possibly get of my kid(s) in 15 minutes?" Come on people, this is The Wiebners you are talking about! We can make a photo out of anything!
As an added twist to our Teeny Weeny sessions - we will be picking our favorite image from each session and displaying them in our gallery on First Friday each month. We will be using the photos to help raise money for a different charity each month. Here's the deal: Come in on First Friday and vote for your favorite Teeny Weeny image. You can vote by placing a monetary donation in a bucket under your favorite print. All of the money we collect in the buckets will go to charity, and the image that collects the most money wins! The client will receive the print for free that collects the most donations. This first month, we donated all of the money (just under $400! we collected) to Mom's House of Lancaster, which provides free day care for single parents that want to continue their education and make a better life for their family. We are so excited to be able to help out the community!
If you are interested in future Teeny Weeny Wiebs session - please send us an EMAIL to get more info! The spots go quick! We still have 2 spots available for June's Teeny Weeny sessions, which will be held June 24th - the theme is Local Foods and an Eating Contest!
Well now that all of the logistics are done - here are the photos! Our winner of the contest was our first image here below, of Gavin! His print collected a little over $125! Congratulations to Gavin and his family! After we take this show down at the end of the month, they will receive the print of Gavin for free! Gavin was one of our shyest participants, and it took us a little bit to get him out of his shell. But once we did, he was a ham! This was our youngest son Zane's, favorite photo. I asked him why he liked it and he said, "He looks like he is having fun." That's what I like to hear. :)
