Return with in 6 months of your previous session and receive 50% off your session fee and 10% off your total portrait order. Return with in 12 months and receive 25% off your session fee and 10% off your total portrait order.

As long as you keep on returning with 6 months from your previous session you can take advantage of the 50% or 25% off discounts. Orders must be placed on previous session to receive the discount.
