Greetings and salutations from edit-land! I am in the middle of busy season for portrait sessions, but I know there are MANY people (even me!!) who have totally procrastinated on getting family photos for 2017 done. And now we are all thinking about Christmas cards — Y I K E S!!! 


Never fear!! Because I've had so many families contacting me last minute for portrait session openings, I am doing a whole mini session afternoon in early December, and I am so excited! This is my first year offering mini sessions and I think it's going to be a blast. 

Here are the deets:

  • When: Saturday, December 2, 2:30-5pm
  • Where: Forest Hills Park in Durham (dog-friendly!) *the photo above is from this park
  • Cost: $150 for a 20 minute session with fun props and festive music!
  • Deliverables: 8-10 digital photos delivered digitally (optional printing through me at an additional fee)

UPDATE: my super gracious husband, Dave, rearranged his weekend schedule and I am now able to offer sessions on Sunday, December 3, too! Location TBD, but still in Durham. I have four slots still available!

I plan on bringing some blankets, balloons, and photobooth-type props for you to use, if you wish, and I'll have a little Frank, Michael, and Eartha crooning holiday tunes to us in the background. :)


A few FAQs... 

Is 20 minutes enough time for my family? 
Yes! Especially with kids, sometimes 20 minutes is a GREAT amount of time, as kids start wearing out the longer the session goes. We have better chances of cheerful faces in 20 minutes versus 60 minutes. 

What will I receive in exchange for my money? 
A minimum of 8-10 edited photographs, delivered digitally. 

Is there an additional rights fee? 
Nope! $150 covers your 20 minute mini session and all the photos you will receive. I am happy to print for you at an additional cost. Otherwise, the digital photos are yours to use as you wish. 

How soon can I expect my photos? I've got cards to send!!!
You will receive your photos via Dropbox one week after the mini session (by December 9). 

Is there a rain location? 
Unless it is TORRENTIAL rain, we will plan on keeping the session here, with cute umbrellas and the best tree coverage we can find. Sometimes clouds/rain yield the best photos! A torrential rain location will be announced to those who book spots. 

Do you have other dates available? 
As of now, no. If there is enough interest and the spots fill quickly, I may add another day the next weekend. 


Contact me to book your session! I only have THREE spots left, as of publishing this blog. :) Let's capture your sweet family to share with those you love!
