Holiday Deadlines...and First Steps for New Clients

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to let you know that we are wonderfully busy, thank you to all of my existing clients and all of you Living Social people.  You are definitely keeping us on our toes.

I need to let you know that I must photograph you no later than December 5th to guarantee Christmas delivery, and your viewing needs to happen no later than December 12th.

If you are hoping to come in to visit us soon and talk about your session (The first step in our process), our next available appointment is January 11th.   this meeting is a wonderful time to really take some time and experience what I do best, and mesh that with your ideas, and through our collaboration, we will come up with the session that most compliments your family.

Here's wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving as well as Happy Holidays if we do not speak personally before then.



Attention Living Social Purchasers!

As of 7:30am this morning (At the time of writing this post), 43 vouchers have been purchased.

My advice to you is to call 206-686-3130 as soon as possible to get on my calendar!  I am photographing in the Arboretum for the next two weekends and into November weather permitting.  It would be so sad if you miss the very best part of our year, by just not calling in time...

Thank you so much all of you for your interest in my business....


Thinking about purchasing my internet deal?? Read this!


Hi!  i am so glad that you came to my website for more information on me!

I have been in business for about 18 years and love what I do more than anything else in the world!  That is most likely why I did this crazy internet deal, to keep myself working with new people all of the time!   I can't wait to meet you!

Once you purchase the voucher, I want you to give me a call so we can get your consultation on the calendar.  Once we get that part booked, we will talk a little about what you want to do over the phone, but save most of it for the preportrait consultation.  Not all photographers offer this meeting.  I feel it is vital for us to meet once before we work together.   It will put us both at ease and hopefully answer all of the questions you may have about photography in general and about what to wear for the portrait and where you are going to display it, etc.  This meeting will allow us to create the best family portrait you have ever had!

The nitty griity....8x10's are $95, 5x7's are $85.00 and wallets are $60.00.  You are under no obligation to spend any more than this, but  I do offer many different sizes and shapes of photographs in addition to this, and we can discuss wall portraits as well as gallery wraps and collages when we are in person and you can see the actual pieces up on my walls.

All the best, I am really looking forward to meeting you!



What to expect with Jill Labberton Lifestyle Portraits.....


I have been a photographer for about 22 years and have had my business in the Seattle area for 18.  First of all I was on Queen Anne in Seattle, the West Seattle, then emerged after a year in Europe on the Eastside, in Redmond.  Many of you have seen my work in Redmond Town Center since I used ro have a display there.

Now my business is in Seattle and I wanted to do a little something different to "announce my arrival".

You may be wondering: "What does $250.00 in prints get me?"  It really is a good deal.  8x10's are $95.00,  5x7's are $85.00, and wallets are 8 for $60.00.  You may also use your $250.00 to upgrade to something larger.  I actually specialize in wall decor which you will see when you come for a visit to the studio.  Each of you will get the chance to come in and have a pre-planning session before we photograph you, in order for us to make sure we are on the same wavelength and that I am doing exactly what you want for me to be doing for you, we will also plan wardrobe options and discuss portrait placement in your home.  I have found that preplanning makes the session SO much more successful.  You have a chance to ask all of those little questions that you may have, and leave nothing to chance.

Thanks again for choosing to work with me!  I am looking forward to working with you!




Family Plan is launched!

I have had a very successful Baby's First Year Program for many years.  Where I think I fell down, was not having a place to plug those people in who enjoyed having a schedule to when they were being photographed to ensure they were missing nothing of their little ones development.

This is where the FAMILY PLAN comes in.  It is perfect for the family that really values photography as art and perhaps just didn't find me in time to photograph their children from birth,   It lasts for 6 years and is incredibly reasonable because it is UNLIMITED.  You want a session with me, you got it!  I will have special "MEMBERS ONLY" PHOTO SESSIONS throughout the year, and each of your children is automatically entered into our birthday club.

This plan is offered in three increments, $795, $1195 and $1495.  The highest tier is special because it allows you to receive $100.00 off of already greatly reduced member pricing each time you are photographed.  it also gives you access to a Family Image Box at my cost...A savings of $295.00!!  You are also invited to attend special Cannon Beach and Napa Valley photo sessions without a $200 upgrade that the other plans have. (Session fees for those locations are usually $450 with a $1550 photo minimum.)  If you were to come in 4 times on the life of the plan it would more than pay for itself!

Call me for more details and to sign up your family today!
