Nope, that title isn't a misprint. This session was shorter than a mini session. It was a micro session. These little ladies are BFF's with my girls. Their mom asked if I could snap a few quick pictures for their Christmas cards on the way to ballet class one morning. It only took about 10 minutes. I'm pretty sure it was my shortest session yet.
I'm wrapping up another client gallery from our chilly mini session afternoon. I was lucky to have families who didn't mind the cold! These kids had so much fun playing that I think they forgot I was there. It made for some adorable candid photos. I hope the family likes them as much as I do.
I just finished the gallery for these little cuties and wanted to post a few of my favorite pics. These two were so sweet and fun! I can't wait to see which photos mom and dad choose as their favorites.
Taking a minute to warm up. It was chilly!
It was a chilly day for pictures, and the clouds rolled in as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. However, I had a couple of high spirited kids who didn't mind the chill in the air or the gloomy sky. They were just happy to be running around...kids being kids. Enjoy your sneak peeks!
These two were such a sweet pair. You should have seen the kisses they gave one another, without even being asked!
I had to pick two of my second session's photos for their sneak peek. I just couldn't decide. These two were non stop action. Even I had mud on me by the end of our session. :)
I mentioned a couple of posts ago that I'd bought a gallery wrap canvas of a recent family photo. I love canvases. They're clean and simple and classy. They're also expensive! However, if you look around, you can find great deals. Until Friday Zulily has canvases from Image Canvas starting at just $29 for a 16"x20". That's a great price. And if you belong to any of the online photo publishing sites (Shutterfly, Snapfish, etc) you're probably already getting e-mails for free or discounted photo cards for the holidays. Now is the time to start ordering your photo gifts. But what if you don't have a great recent photo of your family or little ones to show off to family and friends? You need a mini session!
What's a mini session? A mini session is exactly what it sounds like...a mini portrait session. I've set aside six half hour sessions the evenings of October 27 and 28 to help you get some great holiday photos for a fraction of the cost of professional portraits. For only $50, you get 1/2 hour session with me plus a CD of your 10 favorite photos with full printing rights. New this year, you can pick your own photos for the CD. I'll provide an online gallery (usually 20-30 photos), and you tell me which 10 you want on your CD. Want to order more than 10 photos? You can purchase additional images for your CD for only $5 each. It's a great opportunity to get a jump on your holiday picture gifts and/or to give my services a try.
Portrait sessions on October 27 will be held at River Heritage Park in Fishers. Portrait sessions on October 28 will be held at Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve in Fishers. If you are interested in securing a time, please fill out the form below indicating your preferred date and time. Sessions will be held at 4:00, 4:30 and 5:00 each evening.
I'm so excited to announce that my first mini session photos are now ready for my client, and I've got more mini sessions planned. It's not too late for outdoor pictures! While most mini session albums will not be posted for everyone to see, I wanted to give you an idea of what you can expect to get from a session. If you click here, you can see the entire album from my first session. Remember, you get one high resolution JPEG image with full printing rights absolutely free with the $35 session fee, and for only $25 more, you can get the entire album on a CD, again with full printing rights. Not only that, but I'll let you in on a little secret. I have a hard time limiting myself to just 15 photos, so if you do order a CD, there's a good chance you'll get a few freebies thrown in. That's right, I'll pop a few extra pictures that you haven't seen yet on your CD as a nice little surprise. For example, my first client will also receive these pictures.
I love that picture. It shows just how much fun we were having that afternoon. Mini sessions are booking fast, so reserve your time today!

And to better introduce my mini session special, I'd like to present my first mini session clients. Their mama was looking for a Christmas card portrait, and since it was just about to rain, the mini session was about all we could have squeezed in. No matter, the girls had a great time, and they look absolutely adorable. Honestly, I don't think our timing could have been any better. We must have hit peak fall color this week, because it was gorgeous!
Check back in a day or two for a look at these girls' full photo gallery, to get an idea of what you can expect from your mini session. Have a great weekend!
