2014 Outdoor Back to School Portraits

Can you believe it's already that time of year?! Where did the summer go?

But thankfully, it also means we are back to save you from those 'other' school pictures! As we've done every year for the past 6 years, we are doing our Outdoor Back to School Portraits. These just can't be beat! You get to have school pictures for your kids that you will actually WANT to hang up. :)

This year we are making it even more awesome by having 3 different locations to do them. We are going to be out at the Daybreak lake, Murray Park, and Downtown SLC! We will have 2 days at each location. It's going to be the best year yet!

I've also included maps below, just to be sure you know where to find us. But, as always, never hesitate to call or email us to get your questions answered.

1st Unniversary Sale

No that isn't a typo! :) The Horrocks Photography anniversary is in March, but August just so happens to be the magical 6 month mark - pretty perfect since August was the Fotogenix Anniversary. So, just like an un-birthday, we are going to be celebrating our Unniversary all month long!

Like previous years, we are offering a SUPER deal on 16x20 prints! All of our Portrait Club Members can receive a FREE 16x20 with their package purchase, or they can go al-a-carte and simply take $100 off a 16x20!

Don't forget, this only works if you do it this month! Call, email, or contact us via the website ASAP!
This month ALWAYS books up fast.

Sharing is Caring!

We've heard it our whole lives, right?! "Sharing is caring!" Fact is, it's about as true as it gets. When you find something fantastic or something you love, what do you do? You tell everyone about it so they can experience this amazing thing you've found for themselves. This is the whole idea of things like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. It makes it even easier to share the love with everyone!

Now, what does this have to do with us at Fotogenix @ Horrocks Photography? As you may have figured out by now, we want all of you, our FABULOUS friends, to help us get the word out! We love all of you, and we are positive we will love all of your friends and family too.

Naturally, we have a perk for you for spreading the love. Everyone who comes in because of you will get the perks of having a Portrait Club Membership for that session (i.e. waived session fee, an extra pose and sheet onto their package, and 10% off their order), and you will get a $20 credit to use for yourself in the future for everyone you send in! Like we said, sharing is caring!

So what do you say? Let's put an end to settling for average photos - let's release your inner rockstar!

Couple's Mini Sessions!

One of the things I feel the most passion about is couples getting their portraits done.  Far too often I hear things like "Our last 'real' picture was at our wedding". That's no good! You and your love deserve to flaunt what you've got! ;)

That is why I'm introducing our Couple's Mini Sessions! These will be AWESOME! On the last Friday of every month, starting June 27th, we will be booking these mini sessions. The beauty of it is that you can make it a new, exciting part of date night! Each month will have a different theme, and possibly even a different location if it enhances the mood/theme.

So here's the details: each session will be 30 minutes (or less if you need it to be) and will include 5 fully edited images on a CD for only $40!

For June we are going to start off smooth and keep it old school and build around the 'classic romance' theme. We will have 'sets' and things to create the feel for you here at the studio. Of course, you are more than welcome - encouraged even - to bring some things/ideas that will really give it the personal touch for you and your love.

On a fun note, I thought I'd share this link to some of the more...shall we say, entertaining couple's photos floating around the internet. Enjoy!

We just love Awkward Family Photos!

Hooray for New Ownership!

What's Happened?

By now most of you have heard that Fotogenix went through some changes recently. What used to be our Fotogenix studio in Sandy can be found in Bluffdale, and is now Fotogenix @ Horrocks Photography! It all came about very quickly and it was kind of messy; and that is why there has been some confusion about it and what it means for all of you - our fantastic loyal friends and clients.

So what exactly does this mean for you?

Well, in short, it means you win! Without going into boring details, Fotogenix needed this change in order to grow and make the whole experience more awesome and enjoyable for all of you. We still honor, and offer, your Portrait Club Memberships as well as valid gift certificates you purchased from Fotogenix under the previous owner.

The vast majority of you know me, the new owner of Fotogenix @ Horrocks Photography. It's Dave Horrocks (just to refresh your memory I'm pictured to the right) who had worked for Fotogenix since 2007. I, and my assistant Veronica, are taking things to a whole new level now that the red tape is gone. One of the most notable changes is the smaller staff. For us, a smaller staff means better results for you - and it takes the guess work out of who you'll be working with when you book with us. It also means we can be persnickety as to if, who, when, and how we hire in the future (if you remember the craziness that ensued a couple of years ago when Fotogenix had to hire 6 new photographers to staff both studios you can agree how much better this is). The last thing we want is to hire someone who can't produce the standard of quality and excellence we aim for. We've recently been made aware of how many people have had this problem and not said anything to us. I cannot emphasize enough - PLEASE let us know if something isn't up to snuff so we can remedy it. There's just no reason to live with something you simply aren't happy with on your walls.

The next big change has been a change in our philosophy of how we book sessions. The first part of that is our flexibility. We no longer have "business hours" because those are too restrictive. We can, and will, book whenever is best for you - as long as someone else isn't already booked during that time (yes even if you can only do it at 11:30pm we will be there!). We also will not be doubling up our appointments any longer so that you have the entirety of our time and attention because you deserve it! That also means we can easily change from in-studio sessions to outdoor sessions (or vice-versa) without any conflicts with another session. The big concern with this of course is getting a hold of us. No worries there! When we aren't at the studio the phone forwards to my cell phone so I'm always reachable (naturally if we are in the middle of a session we may not answer, but we will always return your messages ASAP).

What else does the future hold?

One piece of big news we'll let you in on is our new locations for outdoor sessions! We have 2 new exclusive sites that we now have access to as a part of moving in to our new studio space. One is located above the Draper LDS Temple and the other is right out behind our new studio. These places are AMAZING! Both have unique landscaping as well as a Euro styled structure to the buildings and the grounds. We've loved shooting there and so has everyone we've had the privilege of photographing at these new locations.

As for more new things coming up? I'd tell you....but that will spoil all the fun! We will have some new, fun, cool things happening so be sure you are following this blog as well as signed up for our emails. You can also keep tabs on us via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! That way you'll be sure you won't miss out on the awesome!
