Holiday photo sessions are ALWAYS a hit among my sweet clients, but this year I’m thrilled to be collaborating on an offering with my incredibly talented friend to style the most epic, classy, and exclusive setup. For those who know my style and/or work with me often, you know I’m NOT a fan of super prop-driven or posed images within my style of photography. I love the organic, candid, soft emotion that captures the essence of relationships–something that can be admired timelessly for years to come.
With that being said, my extremely talented friend and stylist, Shiloh Latham, will be designing a kick-ass setup for these sessions. Without giving too much away, I can tell you it will be a mix of a little bohemian, some classic creams, and a slight holiday and of course “cozy” vibe. The setup will have the option of more of a boho flair with deep Fall colors, more of a neutral scene, or just classic, no-prop-at-all images. All of these will be in the same general vicinity, so we can even do a mix of all of them!
++Although these sessions will be styled with more props than my average shoot, it will reflect the same organic, emotion-driven feel of my usual images.
HERE ARE THE DEETS:
Holiday Sessions are photo shoots with yours truly for a $100 session fee and include a private 20-30 minute session and a private online viewing gallery for ordering any and all holiday photos in time for Christmas (prints, holiday cards, downloads, etc).

(Scroll below for answers to some FAQs)
How many photos can we expect in our gallery during a 20-30 minute session?
Generally, my full Lifestyle Sessions last only about 30-45 minutes, so even though these are considered “mini” sessions, you will have at least 30 edited images to choose from in your final gallery–very likely, more than that. (:
Will you be offering weekend sessions on any other dates?
No. I actually rarely EVER photograph on weekends, especially in the Fall, due to the busy wedding season. This will be the only date offered for Fall WEEKEND sessions, AND at exclusive pricing.
How many people are allowed in the session for the $100 session fee?
Immediate family only. Should you want extended family in photographs, each family would pay an individual $100 session fee. This would extend the time of your session for each $100 paid. Essentially, they would be booked as separate sessions, just back-to-back to ensure all necessary groupings. If this is of interest to you, it’s highly encouraged that you book ASAP before back-to-back time slots are filled.
How do I secure my spot?
To secure your spot, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your first, second, and third preferences for time on November 6th. I will email back a contract. Because these sessions are offered at a reduced rate, the entire $100 session fee ($108 with tax), is due at the time of booking. BOOKING IS ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS.
What does my $100 include?
The $100 includes the 20-30 minute session fee and your edited, online gallery for viewing. This session fee is an EXCLUSIVE price offering. All prints, enlargements, albums, and high-resolution downloads will be available for purchase within online galleries. My average family invests about $500-600 in a Lifestyle Session. Due to the exclusive session fee pricing for these sessions, you can expect a LESSER total investment than an average Lifestyle Session. For mini-sessions, my clients generally end up with a total investment of around $350.
For those of you who want beautiful photographs, but are wanting a more exclusive experience, please contact the studio to discuss a full lifestyle photo shoot for you and your family. Limited availability for October, November, and December.
*Note: ALL orders from Holiday Exclusives MUST be placed by MIDNIGHT on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2017. No exceptions.
