Fall Portrait Party Sign Up 9/15/17

2017 Hillcrest Fall Portrait Party

What is a Portrait Party?
A Portrait Party is a fundraiser for our PTA and a fantastic opportunity to have unique and professional pictures taken of your family. Two to three weeks after your 30-minute sitting, you will be able to download your images directly from Haselhorst Photography’s website for your personal use! This is a perfect opportunity to get a great family picture for your Christmas card while the weather is still nice.

Tips for Great Pictures
Arrive 10 minutes early to check in and relax.
Come knowing what kind of pictures you want (whole family, just kids, etc.). Ask to look at your photos to ensure you got the shot you wanted.
Pick complementary color schemes.
Tan pants or jeans can look chic and classy!
Avoid loud patterns, wearing heels, being overly dressy, or wearing all black.
Take a bathroom break before coming to the park!
