What’s your favorite photo with a parent?
This is mine. It’s my dad and me when I was five, and is probably one of my most treasured photos. In the lush mountains of West Virginia with my baby sister strapped on my mom’s back, we explored caves and hiking trails in the area where my dad was born. I don’t remember a lot from that trip, but I do love the few photos that remain from our time together.
If you’ve had a child longer than one day, you know how FAST they change. (That goes for toddlers and teenagers.) In our digital and smartphone age, most of us have no shortage of photos of our kids.
But how many do you have where YOU are in the photo too? And of those, how many do you have printed out, that your child can frame and enjoy 30 years from now?
(My guess, if you’re like most people, is “not that many”.)
Let’s fix that, shall we?
I know, I know…a family photo session screams “stress and chaos”, especially if you have LITTLE kids (or a reluctant teen or spouse).
That’s why I’ll help you all the way through the planning process, from suggesting ideas for clothing to making sure kids (and dads!) have FUN at the session to helping you select the PERFECT artwork to grace your home. I even team up with hair and makeup artists to make mom feel fabulous.
You’ll get the clothes together (with guidance from me), show up, and have fun with your family. I’ll handle the rest.
I only have a few weekend dates left for full family or senior photography sessions with delivery guaranteed before Christmas, so be sure to snag yours before they are gone.
Fridays: 10/12, 10/19, 10/26, 11/9, 11/30 (all outdoors, your choice of Houston-area locations)
Saturdays: 10/27, 11/10 (late afternoons are all outside, mid-day can be either in the studio or a shaded outdoor location)
Sundays: 10/7, 10/14, 10/28 (mix of mid-afternoon northwest Houston studio sessions and sunset outdoor photo sessions at your choice of Houston-area locations)
Full sessions include:
- A 1.5-hour session at a location of your choice (I’ll provide options!)
- An in-person viewing and ordering appointment (at my studio or your home)
- A beautiful gallery of wall-worthy images to fill your home (all artwork purchases are made during your in-person viewing and ordering appointment, 1-2 weeks after your session – session fee does not include products or digital files) See the Studio Lookbook with full pricing details.
- ZERO guilt over spending money on digital images only to have them sit on your computer two years later despite your best intentions of making canvases, albums, etc.
AND when you book your full photo session by Oct. 1, you’ll receive a FREE box of 25 custom-designed holiday cards, printed on thick, luxurious card stock ($75 value) – my gift to you.
Yep, free holiday cards, DONE FOR YOU. Sign me up!
What about mini sessions?
If something shorter and smaller is what you need for your family photos this year, my annual Petite Sessions (sometimes called Mini Sessions) are now open for booking, with three date and location choices in and around the Houston and Bellaire areas. You’ll get 20 minutes with me and a proofing gallery of 10-15 images to choose from – perfect for holiday cards and quick grandparent gifts. (All purchases are separate from the $59-plus-tax session fee.)
