Who doesn't love Fall? Autumn is such a gorgeous season for so many reasons - the weather is cooler but still nice, the colors are vibrant and rich, there's an excitement about the upcoming holiday season that runs beneath the surface... Amazing! There isn't really a a better time all year to take photos outdoors than the fall, but scheduling those prime days can be tight, and sometimes it's just not convenient for a budget to have a full session for you, your family, or children. That's why I've set aside a day in October - Saturday the 22nd, specifically - to devote to mini-sessions!
What is a mini-session?
A mini-session is a 20-minute photo-shoot for you as a family, individual, couple, or for your children. It is at the location of my choice (in this case, Greenway Farm in Hixson) and time-slots are secured on a first-come, first-served basis. You get the caliber of photos and professional service of a full hour-long session, just fewer minutes.
What does it cost?
It is $50.00, with a $25.00 non-refundable deposit due at the time of booking to secure your time-slot. For an additional $5.00, I will create a custom Christmas card from one of my unique templates.
What do I get?
Your investment includes a disc of 5-8 (depending on the number of people in your group) retouched images as full-resolution files with copyright release. If you add a holiday card to your order, that will be included on your disc as a JPEG file for you to print with your service of choice. As always, fine-art quality prints are available for purchase directly from me, and I would be happy to work with you to print your cards for an additional fee to streamline your card-creation process.
Can you really do a good job in 20 minutes?
