the end-of-summer update AnneMarie Hamant Portraits + Stories

We filled our summer to the brim with activity.

In June I took a solo trip to Denver, CO to be a part of an amazing workshop with other women photographers from around the country. That week away was super inspiring and definitely pushed my work forward this summer.

Besides the beautiful scenery, amazing light and locations to shoot, it was kind of awesome to be away from my family for a week. You know what I mean? I love them and all but.... it had been 8 years since I'd travelled alone and I kind of needed it.

it was one of our best summers ever, but.....

I'm kind of ready for cozy sweaters and boots. Apples and pumpkin everything!!! Jumping in massive leaf piles and picking wild goldenrod!

I am SO ready to see my very favorite return clients!

(stay with me through the end of this newsletter and I have a special THANK YOU!)

I am offering limited sunrise and sunset sessions. I can't wait to be chasing that light while playing with all your beautiful families.

This type of session is called lifestyle (my gently-posed, romping-in-the-fields kind of session).

Lifestyle family sessions capture those in-between moments of love and expression.

In a Lifestyle Session we still set out to get that one perfect "grandma pose" with everyone looking at the camera, as well as updated solo pictures of the kids.

I'm Also truly excited to introduce a new kind of session that speaks right to my soul...

I wanted to offer you sessions that reflect my personal documentary work with my own family.

I call these Life Story Sessions which are documentary, unposed, totally authentic storytelling sessions. They can take place in your home or on location, but they focus on daily routines or a special family activity in a photo-journalistic approach.

Your life. My lens.

Little details you'll want to remember about your ordinary everyday.



Documenting these milestones with more than a just an iPhone snapshot.

These sessions are really low stress because it's less about what you wear and more about who you are and what your real life looks like. And I promise they are still going to be every bit as beautiful as a Lifestyle Session. AND the kids are going to have so much fun.

So think about booking a Life Story session this fall instead of a traditional park session. These sessions are packaged as an all-inclusive fee because you are going to want the full story. It can't be told in a limited number of digital files. These sessions are $700 and include extended session time and all digital files as well as a $100 product credit, and they make for a great storybook album.

These are the kind of photos that stir up deep emotions. They are much more than just a solid Christmas card shot.

Stay with me 'til the end folks.. I promised you a THANK YOU.

I also have some beautiful new product offerings this fall.

These prints are very special boutique offerings that you can not find through wholesale retailers. They are not cheap (fair warning). But they are absolutely stunning. I am now offering museum-grade fine art prints on the finest, beveled Hahnemühle paper, and along with heirloom print boxes.

I am also offering complimentary in-home consultations so I can help you choose which of my products would be best to get those pictures off your computers and onto your walls. If you don't do anything with them because it's overwhelming, or just another item on the to-do list, then what's the point of the session, right? I'm here to help finish the job if you want it.

I've made booking a session a breeze this year by adding a calendar to my website for you to select a preferred date and time.

You can find that calendar at the top banner on my website, or by clicking through one of the links here in my e-newsletter. All of my package pricing is also available on my website under the "Details" tab.

Once you pay the session fee, I will confirm the date and time and send out a contract and planning questionnaire and we will talk locations.

If you've made it this far, and you are a returning client, please take $25 off your session fee with me this fall!

I value your trust in me to deliver high-quality images again this year. I appreciate your return business more than you can imagine. I will also offer you another $25 off your package if you refer me to a friend.

Enter code "THANKYOU" where it says "Redeem code" at booking to receive $25 off your session fee.

Thank you so much for staying with me! I adore my clients and my family is grateful for this business which sustains us! Looking forward to seeing you soon!

(Washington DC I'm coming to you October 28-29). Additional travel dates may be available please don't hesitate to inquire.
