Based on the results of my recent client Christmas Mini session survey - I'll be offering limited Christmas Mini sessions both in my studio and outside "In the Pines" this year - a little something for everyone.   If you’re thinking about wanting some special holiday pictures of your little ones (or family) – now is the time to book a mini session so you’ll have pictures for holiday cards and to give as beautiful gifts to those you love!!

Family sessions - 30 minutes (up to 5 people*) $150 - 8 images

My beautiful studio background options this year are the "Rustic Merry" room and the "Cozy Window" bed option (great for pajama pictures).  You can choose one background or a combination of both.  See Covid precautions below*.  
 

Outdoor sessions will be held "In the Pines" just down the road from my house - all outdoor sessions will be around 3:00 p.m. (a little earlier on overcast afternoons).  For outdoor sessions where I end up with more than the stated 5 or 8 images - I will notify clients of the option to purchase 5 additional images for $50.

Many thanks to my sweet little subjects who are always willing to help Grammy shoot promo pictures❤️

*Studio Covid Precautions:

 1.  I will wear a clear face shield at all times and require that everybody age 3 and over wear a mask when not being photographed.  Hand sanitizer will be available before and after your session.  

2.  I decided to only schedule 1 studio session per day.  This allows at least 24 hours between sessions and gives me plenty of time to sanitize high touch surface areas (door knobs, hard surface props, stair rail, etc.)
