New Studio Grand Opening Fun!

Tuesday, June 2, 2009 - News
Hey Everyone! Hope you have had a great couple of weeks. It sure has been busy around here for us. We moved the studio on May 15th, and it has been a whirlwind of no sleep and working long days to get the new place ready to show off to everyone! Our official Grand Opening is this Friday, June 5th. We hope to see you there! If you haven't gotten the full details yet, here's the lowdown on all of the fun stuff that will be happening!

When: Friday, June 5th - All day from 10 AM until 9 PM
Where: The Wiebners Portrait Studio
320 N Queen Street
Lancaster, PA 17603

This is definitely an event you do not want to miss. Just check out all of the great things we are doing!

1. FREE PORTRAIT SESSION GIVEAWAYS! - Every hour starting from noon until 9 PM we will be giving away a free portrait session. (That's 10 free portrait sessions!)

2. FREE 16x20 CANVAS PRINTS! - Our good friend Adam at Simply Canvas, is fattening some of the prizes for us. For two lucky winners of our free session giveaway, a 16x20 Canvas from the session will also be awarded. So that's a free portrait session AND a free 16x20 canvas for two winners!! Thanks Adam! (Oh, and if we are lucky, Adam and some of the Simply Canvas staff may just show up at the Grand Opening on Friday!)

3. GRAND PRIZE! $500 GIFT CERTIFICATE At the end of the evening a final drawing for a grand prize of a $500 gift certificate will be awarded. How exciting!

4. Fun for the kids! We will have a treasure chest full of great things for the little ones to take home...ah...pirate booty.

5. Unveiling of Teeny Weeny Wiebs You may have read the below post about our new type of portrait sessions, Teeny Weeny Wiebs. Well the results from the first month's shoots will be unveiled as our gallery show for June. We can't wait to show you all of the fun images! The theme for this month was "Doin' Laundry" and boy the kids sure had a blast! We will also be announcing next month's theme, and opening up the sessions for sign ups at the grand opening. Come find out more details!

6. Raising money for charity! Tying in with our Teeny Weeny Wiebs sessions, as well as our gallery show each month, we came up with a concept of raising money to support local organizations and charities. When you come in to the Grand Opening and view the images from the Teeny Weeny Wiebs sessions, you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite image. You will vote for your fave by placing a monetary donation in a jar underneath the print. The image that collects the most money wins - and that fine art print will be awarded to the family of the child in the photo. PLUS - all of the money that was collected in the jars will go to our charity for the month. For this first month, we have decided to raise money for Mom's House, which is a charity in Lancaster that "provides safe, secure, and totally free childcare to low-income single parents wishing to continue their education." We can't wait to raise money for this great charity - so come on out and help support our single families out there!

Well that's the main fun stuff - we have a few things up our sleeves that we may have in addition to this for Friday, but they are still in the works. Really hope to see you make it out - we would love to see you!
