Vintage Fall Mini Sessions!!

For years I’ve dreamed of doing mini sessions like this, but I am just not skilled in putting it all together.  So when I met Amanda from Greenhouse Picker Sisters, I knew it was finally time to make dreams come true!I sent Amanda a few ideas & colors I loved, and she put together the most gorgeous set-up I ever could have imagined!  And the best part?  This can be for YOUR session!  We still have some spots left for our Vintage Fall Mini Sessions on October 18th.  They’ll be at a private farm in Yorktown, VA, and this classy set-up will be there all day.  We can mix & match items, too, if something doesn’t match your outfit just right.  😉

Sessions are $225 + tax and include a 20 minute session & the edited digital files with a print release.   We already booked 1/3 of the day before even making the official announcement so if you’re interested, let us know so we can reserve your spot!  Email susan (at) or use the contact tab above.

Below I’ve included some FAQ’s!What is the turn around time?  Turn around time will be roughly two weeks (or less!).  Your final edited images will be uploaded to an online gallery where you can download them, as well as your print release.  How many images will I receive?  The number of images will vary depending on how your session goes.  If you have three grumpy kids, we probably won’t get as many pictures compared to a session with two adults.  Either way, you will probably be pleasantly surprised at how much we can accomplish within 20 minutes!  The session may seem a little less personal compared to my typical sessions, but it’s only because I want to make sure that you get as many fantastic pictures as possible during the time we have.  We’ll still chat & have fun (that yields the best smiles!), but I’ll be working extra hard to make sure you get a great value!What if my kids flip out & are grumpy the whole time?  We’ll pull out every trick in the book to make sure this doesn’t happen.  I suggest you bring small treats (M&M’s, raisins, whatever gets them excited & doesn’t make a mess).  If your child is old enough to understand, then perhaps planning a trip out for a treat afterwards to reward good behavior will work for you!  For younger children, bringing a small toy or special blanket can provide a sense of security and keep him/her happy for the short session.

Definitely make sure your kids get enough sleep the night before, or the naptime before.  In the end, please know that I’ll work my hardest to still deliver great images!What if I miss my scheduled time?  Please, please, please come early & don’t miss your time slot.  We ask that everyone come 15 minutes early.  Sessions are 20 minutes long and scheduled 30 minutes apart to allow for transition time.  However, the last session will end at sunset, so there won’t be any time for make-ups afterwards, and the items will be packed away.   If you miss your time, we are missing out as well, so no refunds will be given.  If you have enough advanced noticed, we can work with you, but the day of we won’t be as flexible.What should I wear?  We suggest your favorite fall outfit!  That’s part of the reason why we wanted to share these pictures ahead of time– so you could plan accordingly color-wise!Can I use these pictures on my Christmas cards?  Absolutely!  You’ll receive a print release so that you can have the images printed at your leisure, and can most definitely put them on Christmas cards, Facebook, or wherever else you like!I hate red.  Can you take the red items out of the set-up?  Okay, so maybe this wasn’t exactly asked, but YES, we can totally take a few things out or rearrange them if needed to make your session your own!  If you have a cute two year old like I do, then perhaps we’ll get a picture of her carrying this adorable red suitcase.  Or your teenage son can sit on the grass & lean back (carefully) against the wooden crates.  We are absolutely not chained to the couch– we can rearrange & move things around as much as we like!  There are open fields at this farm as well, so if you want we can even step away from the props completely!I’m not married, don’t have kids, and I’m not dating anyone, but I secretly want pictures with this.  Is that weird?  Not at all!  I have a few options for you.  For one, you can purchase a mini session and rock out your own session!  Or you can share with a friend.  Grab a pal, split the cost, and I’ll do some individual shots as well as some with both of you!I don’t think 20 minutes is long enough.  Can I book two slots?  Yes!  So long as we still have the availability, you can book two back to back slots.  Instead of 40 minutes, it’ll give you 50 minutes to enjoy the set-up and get great images!If you’re still reading this far, you’re awesome!  I hope to see you October 18th!
