We all have one. We often take her for granted. We even give her a special day with cards and flowers each year. She goes by different names, but I think just about everyone can get behind one of them: Mom! Now you might be saying: “Wow, Patrick, you are really stretching the limits of a timely Mother’s Day blog here.”…but you would be wrong! She has a day, she has many names and, now, she has an expo as well! Well, an expo in Murray, that is. Next Saturday is the first annual Murray Mom Expo!
Presented by CASA of Calloway and Marshall Counties, Inc., this event is a fundraiser for CASA and admission to the public is FREE! Last July, the first-ever Murray Mom Expo brought in many great vendors and patrons to the CFSB Center…and that was on a Tuesday night! This year, the first annual event will take place this Saturday (July 25) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Robert O. Miller Conference Center in downtown Murray!
Your’s truly is a vendor again this year and we are so excited about next Saturday! And, as an added bonus, for every session booked and prepaid during the expo, we will donate $25 to CASA.
So what is it we at Abanathy Photography, LLC have to offer area moms? As a photography studio, we have plenty!
Whether you are mother of the bride, grandmother of the bride or the bride herself, we offer several wedding photography packages perfect for your upcoming special day!
No matter the season, there is always a wedding going on next week or next year. However, the perfect time to book that all-important part of the wedding (the photographer of course) is always NOW! Photographers book up quickly when it comes to weddings and we are no exception! Come see us Saturday for more details!
New mom, experienced mom or grandmom, great family portraits are key to capturing those memories. We offer several photography packages to fit just about any budget and we even travel!
These are for the proud moms out there! Have you got a little one who has seemingly grown up too fast? Unfortunately, we can’t stop them from taking that big leap out of the nest next year, however, what we can do is capture this precious time in portraiture! Like with our family portraits, we offer several portrait packages with our top two packages geared toward high school seniors!
For the organizing and planning mom, we have our event coverage portrait packages. Have a birthday or anniversary coming up? Have you been tasked with organizing a company dinner this year? One of the fun parts about just about any get together are the photos people share after the fact. Now, imagine if you didn’t have to worry about taking all the photos and just had a great time instead. You can do that worry free when you bring us in to capture your event! You worked hard to bring it together, why not enjoy it when the time comes? You even get a disc of portraits after the fact!
For the crafty mom we offer our commercial photography services. Do you make products from home to you sell online or on consignment? Imagine professional portraits of your unique product, which you can then use for promotional materials and social media. When it comes to product photography, we can offer something your smartphone simply cannot and we even have introductory offers!
For the professional mom, we have professional headshot services. Even though many of us would love to hide behind that late 90’s, college ID photo well into our 40s, the hair styles alone dictate a need for an update from time to time. That is where we come in! We offer affordable professional headshot packages which include multiple poses and backdrops.
For that mom-to-be or the mom who likes to be reminded she is still a beautiful woman, we offer both maternity portraits and boudoir photography services. The latter is offered through our separate “You” by Abanathy Photography, LLC services. We offer free, discreet consultations at our studio any time day or night, however, if you would like info or have questions we will be happy to speak with you at the expo on Saturday!
Whew! Well, like I said, as a photography studio, we offer plenty for today’s moms and are so excited to see everyone on Saturday! And, to reiterate, for every session booked and prepaid next Saturday, Abanathy Photography, LLC will donate $25 to CASA of Calloway and Marshall Counties, Inc.
