“Staying in Touch” Welcome back! It has been several years since our last printed newsletter. Some of our long time clients know that we enjoyed keeping you informed about what was going on at the studio, sharing stories, showcasing a few of our favorite portraits, recipes and just staying in touch. Life sometimes throws curves at you; I lost my newsletter editor and I have struggled to find someone to fill her shoes. Recently I found someone who shares a lot of the same values and the drive to deliver excellence, so I hired her. You will get to meet the wonderful Carla Calitz when you come into the studio. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts and has a strong interest in marketing and design. Carla is taking over responsibility for the newsletter and many other things, allowing me to focus on improving customer service, adding new styles of portraiture, and giving me more time to be creative! We are excited to be publishing the newsletter again. In talking with many of our clients we heard the same thing, bring back the newsletter. With this encouragement it made it easy to decide that it is worth the time and effort. One feature we are adding to the new version is in every issue we will highlight a client’s local business. Just something fun and informational, so be prepared for a phone call. We are honored to have so many loyal clients. In today’s marketplace where the acceptance of mediocrity and low value seems the norm, you are appreciated!!! A huge thank you to all of our clients that refer us to your friends, because of you we will be celebrating our 23rd year in business this summer. Thanks to all of you,

Portraits of a MileStone
There is no question that the senior year is a milestone in your teenager’s life. The magical years of childhood are rapidly dwindling as they approach adulthood. This season of your senior’s life is an opportune time to take senior portraits that will capture who they are, their essence and the person they have matured to be.
At Cansler Photography we specialize in fully tailored senior sessions that are altered to fit everyone’s individuality. We pride ourselves in telling each senior’s story, bringing out their uniqueness and creating an exclusive and distinct portrait. Our aim is to give your senior and your family beautiful portraits they will love. A variety of sessions are available, everything from a basic session to a more extensive service that offers it all. Our favorite and the most popular among clients is the “Ultimate Session”. Clients love this session because it allows us the extra time to create a more diverse and imaginative collection of images. Our focus is on capturing your senior’s personality. This begins with a consultation before the session to talk about personal style, interests, hobbies, favorite things and how to best capture these photographically. It is a chance for you to tell us your ideas; we love new challenges. This consultation helps with pre-planning on what settings will be best. Choose from an assortment of backgrounds, indoor and outdoor studio settings, and on-location sites. The on-location sites are the best part of the Ultimate Session because we really get to dive into what each senior loves and enjoys. For example, if your senior loves to horseback ride we can go to the stable for gorgeous photographs of them riding on their horse. If he loves the outdoors we will go to his favorite place to capture his adventurous side. If she is an avid golfer, we will make her look striking on the putting green. No cookie cutter photographs for your senior! We find out what is important to both you and your senior; only by doing this can you be guaranteed to get something valuable to you. Your senior will look amazing because we make sure to flatter them by proper positioning, helping them feel comfortable and relaxed and using light to sculpt them to create depth and dimension to show their best look. The girls love our wonderful hair and makeup stylist. She is available upon request to enhance your senior’s look. You deserve the best so there is no scrimping on quality. Preparations are already underway for your 2015 rising senior. Whatever you like now is the time to be thinking about booking your senior portrait session. Some parents have already booked their child’s session. Prime daylight hours are early morning and late afternoon for the incredible light, these book up first so don’t delay. June is the best time, before the summer heat is in full swing. Give us a call. Your senior’s photographic experience will be amazing, we guarantee that!
Your Mom deserves the best – she has stood by you through thick and thin, is always there to lift your spirits, and will forever love you more than life itself. Isn’t it time to reverse the roles for once? Pamper her with a gift that will make her feel how much she is loved. Larimar MedSpa is Chattanooga’s most luxurious full service medical spa, offering personal care services such as soothing massages and body treatments, rejuvenating facials, and restorative cosmetic procedures. Mom can choose from a variety of ways to feel better, look better, or just relax. After all, doesn’t she deserve a little peace and quiet - and of course, pampering? Relaxation plays an important role to health and well-being. It is the antidote to stress which is known to contribute to the development of many diseases. Relaxation can reduce stress symptoms, slow the heart rate, lower blood pressure, slow breathing rate, increase blood flow to major muscles, reduce muscle tension and chronic pain, improve concentration, reduce anger and frustration and even boost the immune system. Who knew that giving the gift of relaxation could be so beneficial???? Your mom will receive not only a well-deserved spa service but she can also take full advantage of Larimar’s Relaxation Room, sauna and other amenities that will transform a mere spa visit into a truly unique Mother’s Day gift.

Sydney’s Perspective Photographs have always been a huge deal in my life – imagine that. Growing up, I thought it was perfectly normal to have a camera at 3 years old. So I’ve been around photographs, taken photographs or been photographed my whole life – literally. In spite of all the times I’ve been impatient when my dad says, “just one more”, I’ve always loved photographs of my family, especially ones of me and my mom. I think my mom is pretty amazing, even though I don’t tell her that very often. She takes care of me, is always there when I need her, does stuff for me all the time, and is a fabulous cook. Considering she has to put up with her two children, my dad and me, you know she must be amazing. My dad has always been able to capture relationships, whether it’s between a mother and child or brother and sister. I like having pictures of us all through the house because it shows our family. I know that when I’m older and looking back on my life, I’ll appreciate even more having the beautiful pictures of us together. I will always be grateful to my dad for giving me the chance to have photographs of my mom and me. I’m so glad that he chose the career path of being a photographer.
