Jen's gone CRAZY with Christmas Cheer!

December 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Some of you may have heard this already, but I have decided to take a few steps back from my Photography business and focus a bit more time on my own Family. This decision has been very hard on me, but I look through these galleries and remember just how many friends I have gained over the last 5 1/2 years in business.

I am NOT shutting down Captured Photography, however I AM going to move out of my Studio space since I won't be there enough to justify taking up the space.

With this sad news, I bring GOOD NEWS. Like SAVE YOU MONEY news! I am offering a 50% off coupon with FREE shipping with any purchase over $25. Check out all the great products I have to offer. From Christmas ornaments, to calendars, to canvases, to prints, there is something for EVERYONE on your list!

Enter the code "CHEER2015" to take advantage of this great offer. As I close the door on this part of my business, I hope that browsing your galleries will bring you as much joy as they did for me when I took the photos! I put so much time and love into your Family's Memories, and I want you to have a chance to own them, for less.

Merry Christmas,
Jennifer Urdiales

4th Annual Christmas Pajama Mini Sessions 2015

October 29, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Hello Dear Captured Photography by Jen Followers,


Although my Photography business has begun to wind down, I could not pass up the opportunity to host another year of Christmas Pajama Mini Sessions. This year the setup is going to be nothing like anything I have used in the past, which is the most exciting part!  It will be along the theme of Christmas Pajamas and our favorite Christmas Stories.

These sessions are perfect for Children, however, Grandparents and Parents are invited to participate in these priceless Christmas Memories!  


Sessions will be held Friday, December 4th through Sunday, December 6th.  The price is just $60 (other Mini Sessions with similar time/products run $110), so is a great deal for this precious occasion.  


Just a few rules, ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR PAJAMAS and we will not have time to do "dressy" Christmas Photos this year, so please plan those other sessions accordingly.  

These are my final Mini Sessions of the Year 2015, and I do not have plans to offer any other Mini Sessions until next Summer, so this is your chance!

GOD Bless,


Don't Lose Your Photos - Back that data UP!

July 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Something terrible happened to me last week!  My external hard drive that houses all my galleries for the past 5 years, crashed!  Just like THAT, it stopped working!  Thankfully, I back up everything 3 times, so nothing was lost, THANK GOODNESS!  I also have a super awesome Brother who is good with this sort of thing, and he was able to retrieve them for me!


It brought to light a very important message I must deliver more often.  I know I offer digital products are part of my packages, but please keep in mind that these digital files are only good for as long as they can be read by our electronic devices.  Did you know that the disk that your photos are burned on only carry a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty for defects?  Do you think that if the disk fails that they will replace the files on it?  Nope, only the disk!  Because of this, it is so important that you back up your photos every couple of years.  As technology changes, so does the need to update to the most recent version of data storage.


This is also a great time to tell you that although we LOVE to have our photos in digital format; it does not replace the need to have actual prints made.  Think of Grandma's tote, chest, bucket, etc.; FULL of pictures.  You could sit and go through them for hours, or even days, remembering all those memories.  What happens when you come across an envelope full of negatives?  If you are like me, you throw them into the negative envelope, because hey, maybe one day you will transfer them to a disk (but probably not).  But, it holds true, the REAL treasure is the print!  Right there in your fingertips, staring at you with all those memories of times past.  Some are good, some are bad, some are embarrassing, but they are all memories!


I want to share with you a special discount, now through July 18th.  You can use coupon code "ILOVEPRINTS" to save 25% off ALL products in your gallery, as well as enjoy 50% off your shipping costs.  This coupon code expires on July 18th, so don't delay in getting those memories off of your disk (or out of your gallery for those who have not made any purchases), and get them on to your walls, in your photo album, or even in a drawer.  Just have them!

Thank you for your continued support!  Hope you have a blessed and picture perfect day!

Leann got her hands on a voucher for a general session through the United Way Fundraising drive at her office.  We had a blast torturing these boys into smiling!
