All available slots have been filled EXCEPT for Saturday, March 26. I still have openings for Urban sessions in the morning, and due to popular demand, I’m ADDING Greenery sessions in the afternoon! If you’ve been waiting and procrastinating, this is your last chance. Registration will close Friday, March 18 at 5pm or when all available openings are filled. I currently have room for 3 sessions in the morning and 3 more in the afternoon. Don’t delay!

It’s that time of year again! Soon the tempertures will start to rise, the fog and rain will go away, and we’ll all be breaking out the t-shirts and flip flops. Those barren orchards will explode with color and all that green grass in the hills will give way to the beautiful blossoms of spring.

In honor of the spectacular, central valley spring weather, I’m announcing 4 dates for my annual spring portrait event. This event features quick, pain-free 20 minute sessions that will deliver a set of fun, spontaneous images for you to hang on your wall, preserve in an album, or if you’re a plan-aheader, to make a fabulous WARM Holiday card for next year!

The cost for your spot in the event is only $50+tax. After your session, I will invite you to my studio to view your images and a big screen and place your order. Click the “Sign Up” link below to let me know you’re interested. Once I receive your message, I’ll send you a link to the registration and payment form. Please indicate which two dates you are most interested – label them “First choice” and “Second Choice”.

The available dates are March 19 and 27 for “Greenery” sessions or March 20 and 26 for “Urban” sessions. The “Greenery” sessions will likely feature a rural orchard and/or green fields and wildflowers. Actual locations will be determined the week of the session based on current conditions.

**Special note for people with unused, expired Groupon coupons. The face value of your Groupon remains intact even after the expiration date as a $55 credit towards services from Mark Janzen Photography. You may use the Groupon to reserve a spot in the portrait event. While you will not receive the full session or prints in the original offer, you will still be receiving a significant discount from the standard $750 minimum purchase amount in effect for a standard session. Please indicate in the comment session if you plan on using a Groupon for your session fee.
