This year’s Valentine Mini Sessions will be on Saturday Feb 8. Pick any 1/2 hour time between 9am & 7pm!

Because it’s so late, I’ll be making it a Digital File special.

$100 gets you the session and 1 digital file. Additional files are $40 each ($20 off the normal price).

Files can be individual images, or any of the cards below (1 image per card). You can get them printed yourself for class Valentines, or for gifts for the Grandparents. (They don’t have to be Valentines. You can use the session for a family portrait too!)

Here are some examples of the Valentine’s cards:


Or here’s a cute idea I did a couple years ago for my girls:

2013 Christmas Mini Sessions

Posted By on Nov 12, 2013

‘Tis the Season!

Time for studio Christmas Mini-Sessions!

How does this work?

Because  these sessions are scheduled back to back, they are done at a reduced rate, and a $50 deposit is required. You can pay that below.
Your gallery will be posted within a week after your session. You can decide what package you want after you see your images.
In addition to (or instead of) the packages, you can purchase anything else you want right from your secure, online gallery. Canvasses, books, prints, cards and files.
BUT – only digital files, photocards and prints 11×14 and smaller are guaranteed before Christmas. Only digital files are guaranteed for any order received after Dec 13, 2013.

What Should we Wear?

Christmas Pajamas! How fun would that be? How about scarves & mittens? How about your Christmas best? How about jeans and barefeet? It’s totally up to you! I do suggest staying away from logos, but other than that…I’m not picky! And remember, the more stressed you are, the more anxious the kids are. Keep it fun & casual.

Who Can Come?

Up to 5 family members are included in the mini price. This can include pets (please let me know beforehand…hubby’s allergic to cats – I’ll get rid of him!)
More than 5? Please contact me.

Why do Mini-Sessions?

I provide Mini’s at different times throughout the year, to provide everyone the opportunity to get professional portraits done. I provide shorter sessions, and schedule them back to back – to fit in as many families as I can. I usually offer deals as well, and at Christmas the focus is on getting at least one awesome shot to be sent out in your Christmas Cards.

I’d Like to Order Christmas Cards!

Christmas cards can be ordered from me in two different formats: PHOTOCARDS – which are flat, one sided cards printed on photo paper by my professional lab, or FOLDED CARDS – which are printed on Cardstock, with a blank inside for you to write in. For examples of some of my card designs available, see this post from last year. Custom cards can also be done if time permits. (It can take up to10 days for PhotoCards to be printed, longer for folded).

This was my busiest fall ever. Thanks to all my awesome regulars and tons of new clients!
All but one of my fall sessions were down by the Ranche in Fish Creek this year. As much as I try to get to some new places, I just keep going back there. It has some of the best backgrounds I’ve ever seen. The biggest problem with this, is that when I go to blog, all the sessions look so similar! Well, and fighting for spots with other photographers!

But alas, here they are!








The ‘Best Dressed’ award goes to this family. I just love how coordinated they were. The plum colour looks great with the fall background!

This was the most meaningful shoot for me this fall – probably all year. It’s coincidentally the only session not done at the Ranche! This little guy has Autism and it was a tough shoot. I was seriously cheering when I uploaded them to my computer and saw the good ones. Trust me, the ones where he’s looking at the camera were TOUGH to get. I’m super pleased with what I was able to capture.



This family deserves a shout-out. I was late for their session. Well, it was worse than that. I actually forgot about their session. By the time they called me, and I got there, I was 48 minutes late. Thankfully, they were awesome about it, and I ended up with better light than I would have had if we had started on time. Everything happens for a reason. Or because you forget to put it in your calendar. 😉

And talk about sweet light! This was an incredible night for light:

It’s time, once again, to plan fall portraits! This year’s fall mini’s will be done on two dates, and 2 locations – you pick!

This year, I am offering a digital file package. For $200, you get the session, and your choice of 3 full resolution digital files. You’ll have about 15-20 to pick from, about 5 days after the session, from a private on-line gallery. No muss, no fuss!
