Throwback to last year’s Back to School Mini Sessions!!

I can hardly believe it is the LAST day of school tomorrow! Our family is busy planning adventures and here in the studio, we are planning ahead! Believe it or not, we are already planning 2017’s Back to School Sessions and even our Christmas Mini’s! These sessions will be held the 2nd weekend in September to allow everyone to get back into the swing of school!

Confession. I never buy the photos my kids take at school. Not because I am a photographer and can do it myself but because they don’t showcase their personalities. These minis are just long enough to hold their attention but a good length (15 minutes) to HAVE FUN! They are able to play with props and engage with me to create memorable images. How can you showcase them? Well in addition to giving the images to family and friends, create a fun gallery wall, printing a small canvas, metal print or acrylic from every year. An 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 image is perfect!

These sessions will be opened up in August for booking so make sure to snag one!


Outfit tips and idea:

These sessions are bright and colorful so don’t be afraid to rock, red, blue, yellow, green.

Canvas sneakers are perfect and can often be snagged for a few dollars on sale!

Say no to logos! Keeping it basic works better for these sessions and allows us to accessorize. Words or busy images on shirts (like Dora the Explorer) draw attention away from your child’s adorable face.   Need to shop for your session? Here are my favorite places:

Joe Fresh : Classic and affordable kids clothes. Plus you can rack up those PC points!

Carter’s : The sales are never-ending!

Zara : Check out the kids clothes and you will be smitten! I love seeing what’s on sale!

Do you provide accessories? Absolutely! We have nerd glasses, bow ties, hats, you name it. They also help to keep active kids busy!
