Thanksgiving Weekend Specials {Effingham, Central Illinois Photographer}

1. Documentary Photo Session in 2017

Do you think the typical photography session is stuffy and not your style? Me too! This documentary photo session would be perfect for you then. It can take place in your home or at a location that's special to you and your family. I've always offered these types of session but have never advertised them. These are activity based sessions, located in your home or somewhere that's special to your family. It could be you and your family cooking, playing, watching movies, whatever....whatever you and your family enjoy doing together and want to remember.

What you get: 

- Two hours of my time to document your family. 
- At least 75 high resolution digital negatives, each individually edited by me. 
- A print release to print your images wherever and whenever you like. 
- A beautiful sixty page hard back, linen book with the best images from your session included. 
- The ability to purchase beautiful, fine quality a la carte products directly from me.

Cost: $999.00 (regularly $1650)

Offer good until Monday night, November 28th.

Go to the Purchase page above to take advantage of this deal.

Travel fees will apply if it's outside the Effingham area. 
Session must be booked to take place before November 15, 2017.


2. Photography Class

Do you have a great DSLR camera and don't know how to use it? Then this, How to Use Your DSLR camera course will be perfect for you. You'll learn the basics of using your DSLR camera and by the end of the class you'll be able to shoot in manual mode. This will be a small class with only 3 people so everyone will get individual attention and it'll last about 3 hours.

Exact location of the class is not yet determined but will be in Effingham, Illinois and will take place on Saturday, February 4th. If this class fills, I will open up another date to accommodate everyone.

Cost: $125 (regularly $150)

Offer good until Monday night, November 28th.

Go to the Purchase page above to take advantage of this deal.

This class will hopefully be followed up with a How to Photograph Beautifully class in the spring if there's enough interest. I'll teach you how to see light and shoot with a creative eye.


Tytia Habing

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
