Summer Splash Mini-session Event

Summer isn’t a season, it’s a time machine. Hear me out.

School is out for the year and maybe you’re dreading this season. I get it. The long days, whining, constant snack requests, the ominous question, “what are we going to do today?” or even worse, “I’m BORED!”

But let’s take a step back in time… and remember when WE were the ones counting down the seconds to that final bell, dreaming of all the sun-kissed mischief we were going to make for 3 glorious months, without a care in the world.

Now, what if we could share that feeling with our kids, even for a little while? Play and laugh with them in the sunshine as the time drifts by without worrying about our grown-up To-Do lists? Even better, what if you could capture those moments so you can always remember the summer that time stood still and you just had fun together? So when the morning comes in August, and your kids are bored and you’re wishing school would start tomorrow, you can see that moment on the wall and remember how precious summer is. Maybe we’ll find a way to savor the last honeyed drops of summer instead of wishing it away.

Join us for the Summer Splash Mini-Session Event to add some fun to your family photos. Each session includes:
• 15-minute portrait session of you with your children, having fun together.
• $35 portrait credit toward artwork of your choice – great for hanging on your wall or giving as gifts
• Complimentary ready-to-hang 11×14 matted + framed fine art print of your family ($67 value)
• Price: $120

Available dates: June 14, 21 at 5pm-8pm; June 15, 22 at 8am-11pm

What if I don’t want to get wet?
That’s totally fine! There are plenty of other ways to have fun with your family minus the water.

Will we get a more formal portrait as well?
Of course! Each session will start with a dry, posed image with everyone looking at the camera before moving on to the splashing.

Where will the session take place?
Castlewood State Park is where the images shown here were taken and where I plan to host the minis. With that in mind, flooding may change those plans. Everyone who has signed up for their session will be notified as early as possible if a location change is necessary.

How do I reserve my spot?

A signed contract and paid session fee together will hold your spot. I cannot accept contracts without session fees at this time.
