Mini-Sessions at Empire Mine!

The Moore Family

The Moore Family

How long has it been since your family has been photographed?  How much have your children changed since then?  I know that making time for a portrait session can be difficult and it often isn’t urgent enough to push other priorities out of the way.  So, I’m offering some mini-sessions on Saturday, November 14th to try to make it a bit easier!

What: 30 minute mini-sessions (up to 6 people)
When: Saturday, November 14, 2015
Cost: $75, including $21 print credit (tax included, as well)
Where: Empire Mine State Historic Park

Here’s the idea: you bring your family to the beautiful Empire Mine State Historic Park, enjoy some family time touring this amazing location, and have some professional portraits made of your family during your visit!

These sessions are designed to be quick, painless, and fun.  We will make at least one portrait of the entire family (up to six people), and at least one portrait of the parent(s) and each of the children.  Time-permitting, we can play with various other groupings, such as: Mom-with-kids, Dad-with-kids, just-the-boys, just-the-girls, etc.    I have set aside time for eight sessions, so you can pick the one that is most convenient for you.

We will also make an appointment for a viewing and purchasing session, at which time you will be able to view the portraits we made together, decide which portraits you love most, and discuss the prints and products that would best show off your favorites — whether you want to display them prominently on your walls, or desk, send them as gifts (or all of the above!).

If you are interested in booking one of these sessions, please contact me as soon as possible.  Payment and signed contract are required in advance.
