Holiday Sessions 2018


 

THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! 

My schedule this year has truly limited my ability take on as many family sessions as I have in the past. AND I FREAKING LOVE my families that continue to let me capture them every year! So in order to still have options for you guys who still want some photos, I have ONE weekend date left and I’m opening it up yo you guys. I’m putting up a schedule so I can MAXIMIZE this day with you amazing humans, I want to see as many of you as possible.

Sunday, NOVEMBER 18th, 2018

Lake Tapps, WA

$220 // 25 minute sessions // 10 digital images available in online gallery

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the mini session like? 

It’s just a like a normal photo session, but a little bit shorter, on a specific date, at a specific time. Otherwise, everything else is the same as usual! We will do both posed photos as well as candid photos of your group interacting and being playful. You will have 25 minutes here so we will move efficiently to make sure we get some RAD photos!

How many people can we bring to our mini session? 

While I don't like to set a number on how many you can bring, I recommend a maximum of 8 people for a session. The sessions are the same amount of time regardless of number of people so trying to cram too many people into one session can be hectic. Note that multiple families will need to purchase back to back mini sessions to make sure there is enough time to get both families photographed together. Dogs are welcome (YASSS!) but please bring them on a leash. 

What is the cancellation policy? What if it rains? 

There are no refunds on these sessions unless I cancel the day entirely due to REALLY bad weather. If you are unable to attend your session, I am going to be super sorry to hear this. You can totally try to find a replacement for your time slot but because I only reserve so many spots for these sessions, once purchased that time slot is reserved for YOU. We live in the PNW, a little rain is okay, clouds are my favorite. Dress accordingly, dress warm. I will be in contact with you if the sessions have to be cancelled.

When will we receive our photos? 

ASAP! My goal is within a week! You will receive 10 edited images, via an online gallery. I choose the best 10 images, I edit them, and I get them to you ASAP so you can get your holiday cards ordered.

STYLE

Coordinating the group is a great idea! I generally recommend warm neutral colors, during the holidays it can be fun to add pops of red in as well. Generally I recommend not wearing neons, and keep in mind you will be against evergreen trees (deep greens) so warmer earthy tones are great options.

Please make sure hair is combed and face is clean and free of runny noses or eyes. Please avoid eating or drinking red, orange, or heavily dyed food or drinks before session, as these tend to leave a stain on the face.

DAY OF

Please arrive 10 minutes early and check in at my check in table. There will be hot cocoa and treats waiting for you!

No cameras/camcorders/any type of recording device (this includes cell phone cameras) are allowed during the session unless prior arrangement has been made between client and photographer.

Please do not bring any children not being photographed to the session.

THE SHOOT

I’ve picked a location that is easy to get to you and easy to shoot at. I’ll also be styling some FREAKING ADORABLE festive props for you to interact with.

Pets are SOOO welcome to come! Please bring them on a leash if they are prone to running as we don’t want to spend our 25 minutes together chasing Fido around. They make a great addition to these photos!
