Fall is always one of the busiest times of the year around our house. Between heading back to school, sports, and all of the fun holidays my days are packed! But when you add in the fact that it is also one of the prettiest times of the year and that lots of families like to have new portraits for holiday cards? Well, it can get just a little nutty.

Since there aren’t enough days in a weekend, and enough weekends in the fall to schedule all of the families who want to have their photos done, I am offering two days of mini sessions this year. What’s a mini session you ask? Well, it is the fun and personal attention found with a custom photographer but for a shorter amount of time. There won’t be time for clothing changes and photos of all the various combinations of your family that you get during one of my full-length sessions, but there will be time for individual pictures of children, a group photo of the children, and a few different photos of the whole family. You will end up with about 12-15 edited photos to choose from for holiday cards, to update the family portrait in your own home, and to make grandparents happy when they open a package with photos of their favorite people.

This year I am offering a few different packages because one size really never fits all! However, these sessions get booked quickly, so be sure to contact me soon to make sure that your family is on my schedule.

Fall Mini Sessions fall mini sessions are here!

Oh, and my referral program? It still applies to mini sessions! You will get a $50 print credit* to use for purchasing prints or digital files from your mini session. So be sure to pass this along to your friends!

* Print credits are good for purchasing gift prints, wall prints or digital files. They can not be used for photo books, gallery canvases, or custom cards.

February 25, 2012 Spring Mini Sessions


As I mentioned in my last post, I am scheduling mini sessions to raise money and awareness for Batten Disease.


Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to experience the fun of having family portraits made in a unique location with a custom photographer!

One of the great things about my job (and I use that term lightly, because it’s hard to consider something I love so much to be a job!), is that I have the opportunity to give back to this community our family is a part of.

I’m fairly active with my kids’ school, and happened to mention my photography to one of the PTO officers while discussing the Book Fair (I’m the chair person for our schools’ book fairs–LOVE to read, LOVED going to the book fair when I was a kid, LOVE getting to pass along those memories to my kids!). Anyway, she asked if I would be interested in taking candid photos at the upcoming Father/Daughter dance. To say that I jumped at the chance may be downplaying my reaction… I am always asking Kev and the girls what they do at the dances each year and am never satisfied with the level of description I get. I was thrilled to get to be at the dance and spy on them see what actually happens!

I was told that I could keep all profits from any sales of photos that I took during the dance if I was willing to take the pictures for free. That sounded great, but I decided that I would prefer to donate the proceeds of the picture sales back to the PTO. We are so blessed to live in an area with low property taxes, but the current economy is taking its toll on our schools. I love to give back in any way that I can.

I have to say that nothing prepared me for the noise level in the gym and cafeteria! Especially when Justin Bieber started playing… But having the opportunity to watch the girls have fun dancing with each other, and then seeing the sweet moments with their dads was worth listening to every squeal.
