First Fall Newsletter for Montreal Newborn Baby Photographer



What’s News!

While my baby isn’t due for a few months yet, I have added someone else new to my family: Pauline Gauthier. Pauline is a graphic designer from Aeris Design and has been incredibly helpful in the layout of my recent Welcome Wagon accordion booklet and is creating a brochure magazine for my 2012 Baby First Campaign. I hope to have my magazine distributed throughout Montreal’s baby boutiques and ultrasound/baby doctor offices in the New Year. Look for it!

Great Holiday Gifts

Are you looking for fantastic gifts for your special friends and family members? Make Allison Cordner Photography Studios your one-stop shopping guide to the greatest gifts this season! Here are some great ideas.

Mini Organic Blooms
At only 3X3 inches in size, these festive, pint-sized portraits are perfect for the desk, side table, fireplace mantel, or as someone’s stocking stuffer. They come in a variety of beautiful colours, so you’ll have no trouble choosing one that suits that special person. A best bet gift for sure!

Mod Holiday Cards
Paired with the perfect design and your choice of your favourite image, these gift cards are fun, festive, and full of the holiday spirit. These cards are gifts that will be remembered time and time again.

Accordion Albums

Our adorable 8 panel accordion albums are a gift nobody can resist. They are a great gift for college students away from home, new grandparents, for wedding parties, or for corporate functions. Each accordion album comes with a clear protective slipcase. These are so cool!

Kotori Handmade Photo Jewellery & Charms

Because every picture tells a special story of someone you love, I believe that favorite moment caught in time should be carried with you. So, I offer a wide variety of these handmade, solid sterling silver pieces, each showcasing the photograph of your choice. These beautiful keepsakes are waterproof and UV resistant, so they will last a lifetime. I love these, and you will too!

Client Spotlight


Dominique and Chip

What a lovely couple! To celebrate their upcoming good fortune, they booked the Baby’s First Year Collection and a bunch of great products to highlight the images captured in their photo sessions. They chose two fine art albums, three 16×24 gallery wraps, and three mini accordion albums. The Baby’s First Year Collection includes Dominique in her 7th month of pregnancy, as well as their child as a newborn, sitting up at 6 – 8 months, and in the month of his/her 1st birthday. We’ll follow up on this happy couple in the next newsletter.

It’s official Allison Cordner Photography is part of the new Montreal Welcome Wagon Basket in Cote-St-Luc, Hampstead, Montreal West and NDG. Adina Derrick-Weinstein, the Welcome Wagon representative for those areas, will be featuring me in her New Mommy blog next month as well. Don’t miss it. http://montrealmoms4moms.com

Although I have mentioned it elsewhere in this newsletter, I want to announce the launch of my new Baby’s First Year Collection. It’s an amazing product that you will cherish forever. It consists of four custom photography sessions and four ordering/presentation sessions. The photography sessions include: You in your 7th month of pregnancy, your newborn child, your child sitting up at 6 – 8 months, and your child in the month of his/her 1st birthday.

As an extra special added bonus, after your child turns one year old, you will receive a FREE art canvas highlighting your favourite image from each session, inscribed with your child’s name. What a great way to remember these special milestones in a year of whirlwind changes!

Offering you the Best

As part of my constant striving to improve and bring you new ideas, I recently traveled to Kansas for a unique and satisfying workshop at Julie Klaasmeyer Portrait Designs. While there I trained with newborns and toddlers in a boutique/high-end portrait studio environment, and had my own maternity session. You too can have a Belly Boudoir portrait. See www.allisoncordner.com for details.

Upcoming
Check out my blog to read interesting information about me, my clients, my products and upcoming events. I update it regularly, so make it a habit!

My new studio is in progress and will open sometime in the New Year. I’m so excited! I’ll make sure to let you know when my Open House will be.

I will be organizing a Free Family Photo Shoot session for underprivileged Montrealers in the months to come. I am calling upon local merchants and suppliers to pitch in so that the needy can have the wonderful gift of family photographs. If you or your company is interested in being part of this worthwhile project, please give me a call at 514-692-1214. If you know a family that could benefit from this, check out my allisoncordner.com for details.

Everyone likes contests! Everyone likes to win contests! So, I’m thinking of having a Name the Product contest. If you can come up with a new name I like for my Baby’s First Year Collection you will win a handmade Organic Bloom Frame in your choice of colour. And of course, you will get mentioned here and on my blog! How sweet is that! So, check out my website and/or my blog for further updates.
