PORTRAIT | 2016 Fall Holiday Mini Sessions

Super jazzed that I can finally share some of the photos from our Fall Holiday Mini Sessions from October and November. This was the first season that we tried these mini sessions and they were a huge hit so expect to see them in the future. We offered two dates, one at a local apple orchard at the end of October and one at the studio in November, with a choice of 15 or 30 min sessions. Our apple orchard shoot was inspired by a client actually and we improvised and added to it. {Thanks Kelly!}. Sessions came with 25 holiday cards but the client could add additional cards if needed. We offered a few collections with digital files and framed prints. Most families used the photos to create holiday cards and gifts.

We loved that many of the families that took advantage were former wedding clients as well as local business owners that we work with. Let me introduce you:

1). The Guertin Family:
Kelly owns Bellini Maternity which is a great spot for expecting and new parents. They offer classes {I did prenatal yoga and a new Mom’s class there, it was the best!} and they also have a retail shop for anything baby / kid related: toys, breastfeed supplies, wraps and carriers, books etc. FUN FACT: I originally met Kelly and her family when I was working for Portrait Simple in 2005!

2). The Hunt Family:
We photographed Alicia and Leo’s wedding in March of 2012 {actually, let’s backtrack further}. Paul went to Hendricken with Leo. When Leo proposed to Alicia, they contacted us to photographed their wedding. Fast forward a few years, and two adorable kids later here we are. 🙂

3). The Brannigan Family:
We photographed Bryan and Amanda’s wedding inJuly of 2012. We recently re-connected when they asked us to photograph their son’s first birthday cake smash session in June. Their son is a few months older than ours, so we hangout a lot.

5). The Gabriel Family:
We photographed their wedding in July 2009. Since then, we have been photographing their son, Nathaniel for his birthday and updated family photos. As we always say, we love when our clients think of us for all their photography needs.

6). The Drukovskis:
I met Cathy at the breastfeeding group last year. We hit it off immediately and it’s super helpful that her daughter is exactly two months older than my son. We joke around that they are boyfriend / girlfriend!Cathy chose to do an in door studio session since they were out of state when we offered the Orchard sessions. haha Check out this cutie!
