Winter Wonderland

Hi friends! I am excited to announce that I’ll be doing some shooting up in the snow! I’ll taking my 3 kids up Hwy 26 towards Mt. Hood on Monday, Jan. 16th. We’ll stop when we find somewhere fun to play in the snow for awhile! We’ll leave our house at about 11 AM and grab some lunch on the way. Please give me a call if you’d like me to call or text you to let you know where we are shooting. Local friends are welcome to come and play with us – you’ll only be charged a session fee if you’d like your own dedicated 20 minute session. If you do sign up for a mini-session, you’ll get a package of 32 cute Valentine’s cards with your photos on them.

My journalism schooling is screaming at me about saying “1st Annual” (something can’t be ‘annual’ unless it’s already happened once)… but I digress… lol

I am SUPER excited to announce this back-to-school mini session promotion and school supply drive! It is so important to me to help out our kids and their schools. They are the future! Let’s help make this new school year a little less stressful for some needy children. (and their parents and teachers!) This is such a great deal too – you pay $50 and your kiddo gets 20 minutes in front of my camera with some super-cute back-to-school props. You bring along a back pack and/or some school supplies and you get a 5×10 storyboard print. (they are really cute too! includes child’s name and grade)

Our location will be somewhere in the Portland area – I’ll let you know where as the date gets closer. 🙂

Give me a call or email and I’ll get you signed up! Contact me today – there are a limited number of time slots!

So I came across the idea for a mini-session from the Get Schooled blog. There is a free mini-session guide to download there, along with some really creative and original ideas. 🙂 I was inspired to do a back-to-school session, and invited my friend, Lynn, and her kindergartener to share our fun props. I was lucky enough to borrow a few things from my kids’ school, including this amazing antique desk. LOVE it!  This was tons of fun, and I will definitely be offering more of these mini-sessions!
