Lifestyle Mini Sessions... What, When & Why

Do you know how long it's been since we've offered mini sessions around here???

A LONG, LONG time.

And now... it's time to bring them back!!!

So here's the deal: each passing year, I understand what inspires and drives my joy in photography a bit more. Having just passed the 10 year mark in this business, I've been taking a good, hard look at what I want to do, where I want to go, how I want to grow and evolve... all of it. And here's what I've come up with:

It's all about connection.

When our family gets our pictures taken, the only ones we ever put up on our walls are the ones that show connection. Even our Christmas cards are relational pictures. No looking-at-the-camera-smiling pictures, like, ever.  Connection pictures are also what I live and breathe to capture through my photography.

Now here's something you may not know: looking-at-the-camera-smiling pictures, especially of groups (siblings & families), happen to take a VERY long time to edit compared to candid shots. Who knew, right??? We charge what we charge for our standard sessions because of the editing time that goes into creating a gallery with those images.

So... for those like us who are happy and willing to forego these looking-at-the-camera group shots, we've created a very special kind of session: lifestyle minis. I'm in love with the idea of them, and SO curious to see who else might be in love with the idea as well! My heart tells me it may be quite a few of you... <3

We can bring the price WAY down for these sessions because the editing time will be much lower for me and we'll be grouping them back-to-back, cutting down on travel time, too.

So that's the WHY.

Now for the WHEN:

We'll be having these mini sessions on the mornings and early evenings of May 5th, May 19th, June 2nd, and June 16th. There are 8 sessions available on each of these days. We're opening up the sessions at 10:00 a.m. CST this Wednesday, March 28th. 

We're using this opportunity to build up our subscriber list a bit, though, because it's always a great idea to have access to your clients for things like this! :)

Those on our mailing list will be getting a special invitation to book a session one day early:

10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 27th

So if you're interested, be sure you're on the list, watch for that email, and join me for a lifestyle mini session this spring! You can sign up right here:
