HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS: Sothers is known for high quality, yet fun senior photography with lots of variety and poses. We'll take some traditional poses, but also a lot more exciting images that try to capture the real you and your personality. The uniqueness of your session is limited only by your imagination adn what you bring to it. Please contact us for information on this year's specials for the Class of 2015.

CHILDREN AND BABIES: With six children of his own, photographer Mike Aulie finds photographing children and babies the most rewarding. They are so genuine and fun to capture as they grow and change. In addition to our regular reduced prices for children's photography, Sothers offers several ongoing specials:

  • New Baby Club: Three complete photo sessions during the baby's first year with some poses including mom, dad and the rest of the family if you wish. An 8x10 portrait of your choice is included from one of the sessions. Add a maternity session for no additional fee. All three sessions and 8x10 for only $100 (reg. value $325).
  • Marvels of Creation: Something very special for that brand new baby...an extensive session of your newborn with a wide variety of images including close-ups of those marvelous little appendages. Many of the images will be presented in black and white or spot color. Poses will also include images with mom and/or dad (or at least parts of them).
