Spring Resident Activity – Photo Ops!

Spring Resident Activity – Photo Ops!

It's been a long winter and your residents are probably ready to get outside and soak up some sun!   Why not give them an opportunity to get out and enjoy the beautiful outdoor amenities you work so hard on all year long!   How about partnering with a local photographer...maybe one of your residents is a photographer, you get the idea!  And extend the invitation to take advantage of your amazing backdrop with some priceless family photos.  Residents can take their own shots or schedule a personal photo shoot with the photographer (and then purchase the photos if they like them.)  It's a great opportunity for the photographer to earn some business and the residents don't have to go far for something special!  And the price is right for your budget!  Serve light snacks, lemonade etc.  Provide props, like empty photo frames, couch from the clubhouse, table and chairs, blankets, picnic baskets etc. to make it fun for the DIY'ers! 

I'd love to see some of your how it turns out, please post on this blog or send me your ideas and results and I'll share on my Pinterest Page, www.pinterest.com/thebeckycurrie/apartmentland.  

Happy Spring!

Cheers,                                                                                                                                                                                                   Becky

This is such a wonderful idea that I think just about every community should do it. Even student housing would be fun, although different. My mother in law is a big believer in family photos with a professional photographer, so we go out to different settings a few times a year. At first, I groaned about the pain of getting everything ready and the kids dressed up, but now I see how valuable those pictures will be later in life. Those residents are going to share the picture of themselves in the community all over the place, and is a great marketing tool, along with being a wonderful resident benefit. Not only that, but the community can ask permission to use the pictures in the clubhouse, in social media, and in marketing, as well. So many benefits! (And given that, finding a professional photographer will be worth the money)

Thanks Brent! I agree...I always tell my husband that we have to grab the photo albums first if there is ever a fire in the house! Cool thing now is that we have the digital back up and online posts so...it's less important to grab the actual original photos. But what remains important is taking the photographs! There are so many fun new and creative ideas these days, I sometimes wish my kids were little again! Have a beautiful weekend!
