Can you believe it’s time to start thinking about holiday cards? I certainly can’t. And yet, here we are, and it’s almost October! I’ll bet it’s crossed your mind, however briefly. Well, grab on to that thought and book your mini-session now. Want to know more? Check out the FAQ.

Are you available on weekends?
Yes, I’m available on both Saturdays and Sundays. I am also available during the week. 

Where do the mini sessions take place?
I have a variety of outdoor locations that will make a perfect setting for your photos. When you contact me to book your mini session, we will discuss what location works best for you.

If I choose the digital option, can I print photos anywhere I’d like?
Yes. Along with your digital files on a CD, you will receive a print release form. The files you will receive may be printed up to size 5×7 at a lab of your choosing (Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Costco, etc.). 

What file format are the digital images?
The digital images are in JPEG (JPG) format.
Can I use the digital files to print my own holiday cards?

If I choose to receive 50 cards, but need more than that, can I order more?
Of course. 

How many people can I have in my photos?
The mini sessions are set up for your immediate family of up to 6 people. Is your family larger than that? Just call me and we can discuss options.

I have another question not addressed here. How can I get more information?

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of taking photos of my first newborn subject, now 7 months old. Baby Marcie is just so yummy, I can’t stand it! While editing these photos, I kept exclaiming, “Oh mah gahd!” Really, people! And can I tell you, she hadn’t napped all day, and this was after 4pm. What a doll!

A few months ago, my friend, Janet, gave me the nudge I needed to move this photography thing of mine from hobby to profession. Last weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing her family in their beautiful backyard. They made it so easy for me! Such beautiful, amazing models. Thanks Janet!
