Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Katie M

We are excited to dedicate today's post to Smarty Sponsor Andrea Halsey Photography and her special Valentine's Day offer. Here's what Andrea wants all TSP readers to know:

"Like many of you, I have been compelled to give something to our friends in Haiti during this tragic time. Help us Share the Love by joining us for a very special Valentine's Mini Shoot. On February 6th we will be holding a mini shoot at the studio for all who pre-book their "Sharing the Love with Haiti" session. You will not only have goodies to keep, and fun photos of your kids, but you can also join your child in helping Haiti as 50% of all proceeds are going to an Emergency Relief Fund for Haiti. We have chosen Doctors Without Borders who is currently accepting donations for Haiti in their Emergency Relief Fund to immediately help save lives where the tragedy has occurred." - Andrea Halsey.

Please keep reading for more details on this event.

The mini sessions are $95 per child and include your choice of 25 Valentine's cards and envelopes, 25 Valentine's bookmarks, or a 5x7 digital negative (with print rights). Included with every purchase is a 15 minute studio session on February 6 and 25 matching Confection Cards. Makes perfect gifts for friends and family! All pieces will include your special Share the Love with Haiti symbol for your child to signify his/her donation to Haiti. This is a wonderful way for you and your child to be a part of the relief effort and Share the Love this Valentine's Day. Limited space available. Contact Andrea to book your appointment. Call (336) 280-4625.
