An Insider's Guide to Portrait Simple


We need your vote!

It’s our turn to get in front of the camera!
Since employees are not allowed to enter the official father’s day prop contest, we decided to run a special contest just for our own photographers. We gave them until the end of May to bring in their own props: some stuck with the Father’s day theme, some brought in items that represent their own personal lives; some dressed up in costumes and some even brought in their loved ones. But we need YOUR help with awarding the prize!
All of these fantastic entries are shown below and labelled with the photographer pictured. Click on an image to view it larger, or start with the first and scroll through as a slideshow. To vote, leave a comment on this blog post naming your favorite. Be sure and leave your own information because we’re giving YOU a prize, too! Once the contest is closed, we’ll randomly select three voters and give them each a free 8×10.
Voting is open now through Wednesday at midnight (June 6 2012). May the best prop win!

First, here are just a few of the testimonials sent in last week:

“This is my 4th visit in 18 months….love your studio, love the pictures, products and choices. I never go anywhere else!” -Jaime S. (Warwick) 10/24/09

“I’ve been to this studio a few times now, and always love the result! The photographer we had today was excellent- very friendly, interactive, and so patient with our toddler, who was running all over. She didn’t act frustrated (I would’ve been!), she just followed him around trying to catch his attention with different things.” -Natasha H. (Eastview) 10/21/09

“Emily was fabulous! I was so impressed with her abillity to work with 3 children at once – and one was a baby! Thanks so much :-)” -Amy F. (Natick) 10/23/09

“We’ve been a Portrait Simple customer for a couple of years. Marissa Murphy is the BEST!! Our children just love her and she is sooooo talented!!! She makes the whole experience fun!! Great job!!!” -Jayne L. (Eastview) 10/24/09

“Always a great experience and great pictures!” -Michelle F. (Atrium) 10/25/09
