Fall Mini Sessions for 2013

2013 fall mini copy

It’s that time of year again! Fall mini sessions are always a client favorite- we work hard to make them quick, painless, and most of all- beautiful! I’ve found a gorgeous spot in Long Grove; lots of trees, a rustic bridge, and a wooden fence- all the makings for some pretty fall photos.

This year I’m running things a little differently than usual, so please take note of the changes. As most of you know, I’ve recently had our fourth daughter, so I’m making some intentional changes in the way I run my schedule so I don’t have to be away from her too long. (hey- she’s my last one, I gotta make it count!) 🙂
So, please take a minute to read through the details:

1) I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of my loyal clients and I want to be sure they get “first dibs” on the ever-popular mini sessions. So this year I’ll be allowing them to take their pick of dates first, and anything that doesn’t get filled within a week, I will open up to new clients. If you are a repeat client- yay- great news for you! If you are a new client, I sincerely hope to have room for you or see you in the upcoming year for a full session.

2) The price this year will be $150 per family of four or less. Additional fee of $25 per extra person. As always, the price includes all of your digital files on a CD with full printing rights. These photos make the perfect Christmas cards and you are allowed to have them printed wherever you wish.

3) BIG CHANGE this year…. in order to secure you spot, you must mail a $50 deposit within 10 days of booking your session. Sadly, I’ve had too many “no shows” in the past, or clients who have cancelled at the last minute and it causes me to miss being able to fill the empty spot. The $50 is refundable up to 48 hours before your session. If your schedule changes, or someone is sick, just let me know within 48 hours and I’ll be happy to send you the refund. As always, if the weather does not cooperate, I will be offering times to do a make-up and will work with each family to be sure we complete your session.

4.) Instead of packing in 25+ sessions in one wild and crazy day- I’ll be working for just 1-2 hours and scheduling just 4-8 families each of the mini session days. This will allow me to shoot during the best time of day for lighting and gives me the freedom to get back home to my sweet girlies without being gone for a marathon day.

Please note the only way to sign-up for a mini session is to click on this link and fill out the form:

There are way too many ways to contact me and I end up losing track of all of the requests through emails (both business and personal), Facebook (both business and personal), voicemails, text messages, Instagram comments and clients running into me at the grocery store! 🙂 I always think I’ll remember to get your name in a spot, and sadly my memory just isn’t what it used to be! So please, take a minute and fill out the form so I make sure to remember.

Looking forward to another great year of photos!
