MINI SESSION SPECIAL –  Easy, quick, beautifully real and pain-free Holiday Mini Session.  –  In your home or some other favorite place (grandma’s, the library, target) The session will be done in an hour or less,  and you’ll see the images within a week,  the hardest part will be choosing the  ten digital full resolution downloads included with the session for the equally pain free price of 350.00.

It’s November 8, all you have been thinking about for weeks are the mid-terms and getting a Thanksgiving menu planned.  Now you realize you didn’t do family photos this year and you wanted to send out a holiday card but didn’t get a chance for pictures and you still want to do it but you don’t really have the time (or desire) to plan a big themed session, coordinate clothing and find a tree-farm that is perfectly picturesque.

That is OKAY.  Not all holiday sessions have to have a snow-covered backdrop and kids in costumes making fake snowballs.   

A mini session at home is maybe something just right for the whole family.  Aimee asked me to come and take her holiday card photo at her house.   The deal being the kids are teens and not into the family photo thing and Dad doesn’t like having to dress up and go somewhere to feel stuffy, but if he must he didn’t want it to take all day (and all day tree farm family holiday sessions are AMAZING and I LOVE them but they aren’t for everyone).  Here are just a few of the images I loved from their session,  lots of options, no pain, no fuss, all real genuine smiles.  I LOVE THEM.  

I don’t know which one she picked but this one is one of my favorites.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
