Thank You for a Fantastic Year!

We here at Conners and Co. real estate photography would like to wish you all the happiest of Holidays with a healthy and prosperous New Year!

We are grateful to you for your business but most importantly your friendship.  We love what we do because of YOU!

 
Terri is behind the camera here (exactly where she wants to be), but she, too, sends her love and appreciation.  Maybe I'll get her in front next year.  :)

Cheers,

Who Wants to Save Some Money?

Hey Gang,

We wanted to quickly introduce our new referral program.  Refer any new clients to Conners & Co., and receive a 25% discount on your next shoot.

We've been busy this week in studio and having a BLAST!  We have some new backdrops and fun props to experiment with so if you're looking to change your marketing, give me a call and lets see what we can come up with.

Here are a couple of beauties we did this week:




Some of you have asked about the Yellow Barn closing, wondering if the studio is, too.  NO!  The store on the first floor is closing and The Studio Loft will continue business as usual.  The only change is that when you walk in there will be bit more room to get through and up the stairs.

We hope this finds everyone happy, healthy and ready for winter.

Peace, Love and Holiday Cheer (am I too early for holiday cheer?),

Here We Grow.......




I'm GROWING!  NO, I'm not pregnant, but I have brought on a new photographer/editor who I adore almost as much as my kiddos. 

Her name is Terri and you can read about her here: Terri Voyles

Terri has been editing for me since April, which has allowed me more time for shoots and video.  I haven't had the time to market this side of my business because the KC Real Estate market pretty much exploded in February and just recently slowed down enough for me to take a breath. You can see some of my videos here:   My Videos

Having Terri on my team has allowed me to explore other areas of photography that have been on my radar but could never pursue due to time constraints.  I'm still a licensed realtor (I don't sell anymore and will fight you if you try to make me.....just ask Big Daddy) and can't seem to lose the realtor mind set. What that means is that all decisions I make with my business are based solely on what I would or wouldn't pay if I were still selling.

So, when I was recently presented with an opportunity to lease some studio space at The Studio Loft, I took it to heart and sat down with Terri, discussing our future business together.  We decided to offer Professional Portraits (Head Shots) at an affordable price for all in need of updating their face on marketing, social media, etc.  Come on, how many of you agents have a 10+ year old picture on your business card?  Y'all know who you are?  I do, too, and will be calling you very, very soon.

My introductory offer is $50.00 for one head shot and $75.00 for two.  Send me an email and I'll forward you the full price sheet.

Here's a preview of a few of the photos taken in studio recently.







Some of you might remember Terri from her days of taking head shots for realtors/brokers all over the city - she's looking forward to seeing your lovely mugs again.  You'll also get a chance to meet her while she shadows me, learning the ins-and-outs of shooting the non moving targets. 

In the meantime, I welcome all phone calls, emails or texts.  I've already started setting appointments in the studio and hope to have a full book by the end of August.   

Peace, love and pretty faces,

Dawn Conners

Big Beautiful Skies Coming Your Way......

Hey gang,

Who doesn't hate those ugly overcast days when we're rushing around, trying to get a house on the market?  I know how frustrating it is to show up to a beautiful home only to have mother nature give me the finger.  GAH!

I've spent the week working on learning how to do sky replacement and wanted to give you an example of how they turned out.  I'm still working on the finer details and will add this service to my price sheet after I've worked it all out.  In the meantime, you can find me taking my own stock images of skies throughout the heartland - I had to pay $29.00 just for these two......PHFT!

The first image is the original and the bottom two are replacement.






As always, I welcome and appreciate your feedback.

Happy Easter weekend to you all!

Peace, Love and Chocolate (bunnies),

Dawn

New Marketing for the KC Real Estate Market



Hi Gang,

I'm rolling out some new marketing and wanted you to take a peek to see for yourself.  I'm currently offering video for all forms or real estate (commercial, residential, multi-family and retail) and working towards bigger and brighter things in the coming months.

You can view a sample by clicking on the following link:  http://youtu.be/WL7KqbugMv4

My focus is to create the emotion of a space in the time one has to view a video, average - 90 seconds.  This type of videography will enhance your marketing, improve your brand, which in turn grows your business.

Let's face it, all first time showings are on line and if you want to make it on the short list of homes to tour then always put your best foot forward, showing the buyer exactly how the house feels before they ever step foot in it.  *quemoodlightingandmusic*

I'm sending out pricing information to all current clients and adding a link to my website soon. In the meantime, please feel free to email or call if you have any questions.

Peace, love and chocolate,

Dawn

HOTW.........You Gotta Read To Find Out



Hey Gang,

I thought this would be the best way to quickly announce a small change in my marketing.  I've always posted previews of every single home I shoot on my FB page; however, the spring market is already upon us and I find myself getting further and further behind.  When that happens I tend to flood your walls with pictures, and according to online marketing rules that's a big no-no.  And it totally stresses me out.

Beginning this week (02/03/14 - 02/07/2014) I will be posting a "House of the Week" every Friday unless requested otherwise by the client.  I get to determine the HOTW based on anything from WOW factor, architecturally awesomeness, my angles and composition ROCKED,  I thought the house smelled good, or someone made me laugh.  I base all decisions on emotion.  ;)

Thanks for stopping in and catching up.  I have a few more changes to announce this spring, but I'm still working on the details......stay tuned.

I hope everyone is staying warm.

Blessings, Peace, Love and all of those other warm salutations,

Dawn Conners
