Were you a Kiddie Kandid customer?

I hate to see businesses close, people laid off from their jobs, and dreams shattered. But the worst thing about the entire bankruptcy is letting their customers down. Please rest assured that DS Portraits is here to stay! We’re weathering the economic climate just fine, you won’t see us bagging groceries at Costco (not that there’s anything wrong with that, I love Costco!)

If you’ve been let down by Kiddie Kandids, or have friends that have been, please give us a call. Just to help things out, we’re offering a baby/child ½ hour mini session and an 8x10 print absolutely free, for those that need to find a new photographer.

We’re not in a high cost retail shopping mall, we’re a “Mom and Pop” one-of-a-kind place. We have a huge back lot with boulders, fountains… you name it! Plus, a cozy, modern studio with all the latest high tech equipment. We take pride in being a Certified Photographer through the Professional Photographers of America.

Please tell any of your friends or family that have been effected by this unfortunate turn of events. Just have them mention “The Kiddie Kandid Special”.

Our Toys for Santa Program this past Christmas

Many of you graciously donated toys and items for the Woman's Crisis Center in return for portraits with Santa. We received a letter from them today thanking us, but really, it's you that deserves the thanking!

Doris and Alan,

On behalf of The Center for Women and Children in Crisis, I wanted to thank you for generously donating your time and photography in order to collect presents for the children we serve at our shelter. Because the children we serve are temporarily staying at our shelter due to violence in the home, they are usually very distraught and emotionally upset. The mothers often leave nearly everything behind, including money. Because of your donations this Christmas, our shelter was able to provide Christmas for many children who, otherwise, would not have been able to have such a Christmas.

Thank you so very much for providing a hint of excitement for these unstable children and relief to their distraught mothers this Christmas season. Your generosity was greatly appreciated and our Center thanks you.

May God bless you,

Natalie Moss
Rape Crisis and Domestic Violence Coordinator, CWCIC
