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).

photography news {pricing updates and policy changes}

Getting back to my photography tonight, I wanted to share with you that I have updated some of my pricing and policies based upon customer demand and new software available to professional photographers. However, I think you'll find that you will love the changes for a couple of reasons, too:

MINI sessions are here to stay!
Since there are times when you might really only need 20-30 minutes of time just to grab those updated photos for your Christmas card, I'm keeping them permanently. And honestly, with an almost two-year-old, sometimes that's all the free time I might be able to spare that day anyways! ha...just teasing...kinda ;)

Digital images are yours!
All sessions include at least one or all digital images, as well as a print release for printing sizes up to 8x12 (or  higher in some cases).

Say "goodbye" to DVDs!
Instead of you having to wait a week or two for your custom DVD to deliver to me so I can load the images onto them to then deliver to you, digital images will now be delivered to you via a PASS gallery. To learn more about the galleries, watch this wonderful video that they put together for us :)





And in case you can't watch the video right now, here's what it says bascially: With PASS, you can share photos directly to Facebook , Twitter and Pinterest from your online gallery. You can even download all of your photos directly through the browser without installing any additional software. Your gallery also includes full access to the photos for a year plus secure backup of that event for 10 years. AND you can order professional quality prints (up to size 8x12) without the markup straight through your gallery at super low prices. This is particularly AWESOME NEWS for weddings as your guests will be able to pick up a card at the wedding with a link to where your gallery will live so they can download and order their favorite prints from your wedding and reception :)

Are you excited about the PASS galleries as much as I am?!? So what are you waiting for?? Check out the updated Portraits tab above to see the updated MINI session and FOCUS session offerings. Then contact me to get your session on the books ASAP ;)

Foundation Primer with SPF {Mary Kay Product Spotlight}

Each week, I'm going to focus on one of my favorite Mary Kay products that is also proving to be a huge hit with my customers. Then, you'll be able to grab it yourself at a special 24-hour-only spotlight price!

So first up, we are going to be looking at the Mary Kay Foundation Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It's a lightweight gel that glides on easily and then quickly dries to a silky matte finish. An oil-free formula with SPF 15, it can be used before your foundation to extend its wear or worn alone to give you some protection from the sun, as well as to help even out your skin texture and complexion. It is fragrance-free, dermatologist-tested, and non-comedogenic so it is good for all skin types.

It quickly became one of my fave products before I was even considering becoming a consultant, and all the ladies at my facial this weekend were also loving how silky it felt on their skin. Just look at how happy they are ;)


So, for the next 24 hours, you can grab up your very own tube of this silky foundation primer at a special spotlight price of $14 (regularly $16). Just shoot me an email to susanprater@marykay.com or place an order for it online at www.marykay.com/susanprater. If you shop online, the regular pricing will show up in your shopping cart. However, I will adjust the price before billing you or charging your credit card.

And remember, any gift over $40 also comes with a FREE GIFT - you choose from a mini translucent powder with brush or a mini oil-free eye makeup remover with lash love mascara.
