Our Location In Colorado Springs
Being a photographer at the Colorado Springs location of Andrae Michaels Portrait Studio means that I see a large number of military families. For anybody reading this who is not familiar with Colorado Springs, it is home to the Air Force Academy, the Peterson Air Force Base, and the Fort Carson Army Base. And out of all the military families who come through our doors looking for photos, Army is probably the most common one that we see. But regardless of their branch of service, it is truly a privilege to meet all the amazing military families who come to get family photos.
Military Photo Special
Because Colorado Springs has such a large military population, our photographers at Andrae Michaels love to make sure as many of those families as possible have the opportunity to get professional family photos. That’s why we currently have a “Deployment” promotion. We understand that it is standard for military families to expect deployment at some point. My sister and brother-in-law were military for over 10 years and both of them got deployed multiple times over their service. It is an understatement to say that it is not easy being away from family for such a long period of time. With our Deployment Promotion, families can receive a photo session that includes a 10×13, 2 5×7’s and 16 mini-wallets of any photo from the session you want for only $20. Additionally, you automatically receive a second certificate for free! That’s right. You spend $20 for a photo session before your loved one deploys, and you get another photo session free when they are back from deployment. That way your family member has some photos to take with them on their difficult trip.
One of the most common photoshoots I do is for Military couples. Most are recently married, or just haven’t had the opportunity to get any professional photographs done of them as a couple. Many couples are new to Colorado and don’t have any family near to them, so they like to have some photos to send back to their family members. Many couples also come in for a maternity photography session as well. This is especially popular for our Deployment promotion. Couples often use one of their certificates to get maternity photos before the husband or wife has to deploy, and then they come get family photos once their loved one is back with the 2nd free certificate.
Ask about Military Discounts
Whether you that decide it’s time to come in and get those family photos updated, or if you are just taking them for the first time, don’t forget to ask about our military discounts! I can’t tell you the number of families that I didn’t know were military until I was checking them out and they realized, “Oh, do you have a military discount?” At Andrae Michaels Photography Company we care about our military and want to show it as much as we can. So don’t forget to ask!
