Just Announced!

Upcoming Travel Dates & Mini Session Information

Louie, Snook & I are packing up the car (and plane) and we’re heading cross country! Well, almost anyway. We’re leaving our San Diego sunshine for some cooler winter temperatures and we’re super excited. We’re heading east through the beautiful snow capped rocky mountains and stopping for a few nights in Denver. I would love to breath the fresh, cool mountain air and take in the peaceful city while drinking some of Denver’s local beers to help us relax after our long drive. From there, we will load up the car again, say our good byes to our Denver friends and head to the great mid-west. My home state of Iowa, the great land of corn, pigs and incredible people. I absolutely love visiting my family, friends and seeing where my roots were planted.  Thanksgiving at ‘home’ this year will be so nice! 

Throughout the trip, of course I will be taking lots of photos and will be blogging my travels. More important, I am beyond thrilled to announce for the first time during our travels, I will be offering a limited number of mini-sessions!  This is due to the popular demand and the stars aligning just right 😉 I can’t wait to see the country stars!



SESSION DETAILS: Mini Sessions are great for those looking to update their family photo for the holidays. It’s super simple, a lot of fun and an ultra quick session that is easy on all of your family members at a location chosen by myself. Mini-sessions can accommodate up to 5 family members, each additional head is $15.  Your session will last 15-20 minutes and will be located outdoors.    You will receive 10 digital images with a print release as well as an online viewing and ordering gallery should you want additional prints or digitals. All sessions are first come, first serve, so don’t delay as they will fill up quickly.

WARDROBE CHOICES: Your family should coordinate, not match. The days when we all wore the same thing are past and shouldn’t be brought back. You know what I mean… the matching white polo/top and khakis or jeans. Don’t be that family. Add color and patterns to your wardrobe. You can go off of the same color scheme and still match without being matching twins. One of my favorite color combos is navy, yellow and grey with a pop of bright colors in accessories. So beautiful!  The session will be outdoors so please dress appropriately. If you are unsure of what to wear, I will be happy to help you and your family plan something out. I will make it very easy for you 🙂

The final locations and meeting spots will be determined once each date is filled.


PAYMENT INFORMATION: At the time of booking you will sign an electronic contract confirming the date and time of your session. Your session fee is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable if you are unable to attend the session.

TURN AROUND TIME:  You will receive your digital images on or before Friday, December 4, 2015 via an online gallery. Your gallery will be available until December 11.  Any print orders need to be submitted by then in order to receive them by the holidays. No exceptions.
