Christmas Family Portraits

Folks in the region are welcome to have portraits taken by a Warrensburg photographer, and a portion of the proceeds will go to local charities.

Sittings will be held three weekends only - Nov. 20 and 21, Nov. 27 and 28, and Dec. 4 and 5. The set price for four poses is $49.99. Personally edited photos will be delivered on a CD that will be ready for pick-up within an hour of the sitting. Props and solid backdrops will be available, and portraits will be taken in a professional, quiet setting. Clients are to choose the recipient of 20 percent of their portrait payment - either Operation Santa Claus, North Country Ministry, or Christmas Shoe Box Ministry. Sittings are by appointment only. Call Grace Photography at 623-3012 for details or an appointment.
