Hello there!

My photo
My name is Susan, and Designs by Prater is what you could call my creative outlet that pulls together my photography, art and graphic design endeavors! The most important thing you should know about me is that my life revolves around my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, my family (especially my husband Todd, son JD, and puppy Lexie), family and friends. Other than that, I am pretty much obsessed with photography, Coca-Cola, and the color green (and all shades of green for that matter, especially teal). I love sports but cannot play them worth a lick. I would not trade my time as a college student at Mississippi State for anything in the world. The friendships and memories made there will stick with me forever...Hail State and Go Dogs! And I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheeses, and shaved ice (gotta be SnoBiz watermelon flavor).

focus : jeff + lindsey

So, the sneak peek photos just posted from Jeff and Lindsey's shoot won't have to feed your hunger for as long as originally thought! While the hubs was out umpiring baseball and mowing the lawn today, I was able to get caught up on editing their pictures. Here are some of my favorites!

P.S. Since we already had them out for a business shoot to get headshots for their website, we thought we'd take advantage of our time together and give them some fun personal shots for their home, too...

Introducing Drs. Jeff and Lindsey Carr

Even though they have been mentioned before a few times on our blog, it is time to officially introduce to you Drs. Jeff and Lindsey Carr from Natural Potential Chiropractic in Collierville, TN. They will be opening up their clinic later in July, and we are so excited for them! A little bit of info about them taken from their website:
Located in Collierville,TN, the health professionals at Natural Potential Chiropractic are dedicated to helping you achieve your wellness objectives -- combining skill and expertise that spans the entire chiropractic wellness spectrum. Drs. Jeff and Lindsey Carr are committed to bringing you better health and a better way of life by teaching and practicing the true principles of chiropractic wellness care.

I have been blessed to work with them in their exciting new venture and create artwork for their business cards and promotional t-shirts, as well as take headshots of them for their website. I had a lot of fun with them on their photo shoot last week because they wanted to also bring along their "children"...two Great Danes, Doc Holladay and Annabelle!

While we'll be sharing more pics from their shoot later in the weekend, I wanted to give them a sneak peek at some of the photos!

What's New (and almost new)

Since this summer will be our first in business here at Designs by Prater, we thought we'd usher it in with a bang! We'll be producing new marketing materials for prospective and current clients, revising our portrait packages, introducing new products, having more frequent sales, and much more!

1 - New portrait packages are coming to DBP on July 1, 2009. If you want to book a MINI session at the current rate, contact us to pay your session fee and book your appointment BEFORE July 1. The session can take place after that date, but it must be booked before then. Our new packages will help streamline our sessions and offer you several "collections" that hold different products at reduced rates. MINI sessions will not disappear altogether, but will only appear for special occasions, like Mother's Day, etc.

2 - Speaking of sales, here is a BOGO one for you right now! Buy one large print at regular price (16x16 or larger), and get another one of equal or less value absolutely FREE! P.S. The cool part about this special is that your two prints do not have to be from the same image or even the same size. Check out your gallery on our proofing site to make note of the images you would like to purchase and contact me directly to order your prints. This sale ends Monday, June 15!

3 - Here's a new product you might be interested in - Thin Wraps!


Choose your size, material (Lustre, Metallic, or Canvas), and finish (Glossy or Satin Laminate). Add an optional Easel Stand or Mounting Block to complete the display at no extra cost.

Now through June 25th, these babies are on sale at 30% off!
- 8x10 for $45
- 10x10 for $50
- 11x14 or 12x12 for $55
- 16x16 or 16x20 for $85

Again, if you are interested in purchasing one of these from your session, check out your gallery on our proofing site to make note of the image(s) you would like to purchase and contact me directly to order your prints. This sale ends Friday, June 26!

Stay tuned for more exciting changes!
