It's Fall Family Mini Time!
What a wild ride this year has been so far but one thing that I know I’m looking forward to is seeing your faces for Fall Family Minis!
I’ve worked SO hard putting the schedule together with the feedback from my questionnaire and I hope that I can accommodate everyone’s wishes! (By hope, I mean lose sleep at night hehe). Just like everything else, minis are a little different this year because of Covid, but honestly after a 2 month break when all this first started I’ve (safely) done a lot of sessions since and once we’re there, it barely feels like anything is different!
So what's the fine details? Pretty much the same as last year! $185 and it includes 10 of your absolute favorite images from the session. Once you pick if you'd like to purchase more you are absolutely welcome to! ($30 to $90 max for entire gallery). Each session will last about 20-25 minutes and that'll give me time to clean props in between. Please add $10 to session for Frosty the blue truck, $5 for vintage couch and I'll take a $50 deposit for all sessions to hold your spot. You'll then pay the balance on the day of your session! If rescheduling happens due to rain or covid, don't worry I will absolutely apply your deposit to a later date!
This year I’ve built in more reschedule times because of the extra illness/quarantining that will be going around, just in case.
Because of that, while I AM taking on new clients this fall; to be fair to the old-timers I’m going to have two sign up days again: one for current clients first and one for the newbies and I can’t WAIT to see you both!
How do you sign up? Now that the big sign-up days are over, just send me a text at 803-743-7189 with your name, email address, and your choice of date and time. We'll chat from there!
Here are the available dates and times: (But first keep in mind wake and nap times for little ones, Carolina games for the husband (eyeroll haha), and daylight savings messing with kid schedules (Nov 1st). I'm sorry that I can't do Saturday mornings, but I'm living true Soccer-Mom life right now (and loving it))
KEEP IN MIND, FROSTY ADDS $10 TO SESSION FEE, VINTAGE COUCH ADDS $5. After I list the dates you'll see where I added descriptions for some of the locations! I will also add that there's always the chance that I will need to push the times up or back 30 min depending on light and while it's rare, you'll know by the day before. This is DEFINITELY to your advantage because great light is so important to this process!

Red Barn/Old Fence- This is at my outdoor studio space in Lexington. There's a large red barn wall (not a real barn, think very realistic backdrop) that I'll have decorated for Fall. If you'd like I can removed some of the fall decor and have it be more neutral. I also have a old wooden fence that looks great for some of the shots.
Frosty the vintage blue truck- This is Hollow Creek Tree Farm in Gilbert. Frosty is a beautiful powder blue truck and I'll decorate it with neutral props, he's always a huge hit and you'll love him!
Cayce Historical Museum- If you haven't guessed, this is in Cayce! It's got a creek, old bridge, and lots of trees! The creek is my favorite part.
Vintage Couch- I've got a fancy cream colored vintage couch set up for us! This will be at my outdoor studio space in Lexington and I'll have both fall and neutral props.
SC State House- I love this location, you can find a pretty spot no matter what time of day! There's fun wild grass, pretty walkways, iron railings, and you can do an entire session without getting a single building in the background if you don't want to.
Brown Barn/Old Fence- This is at my outdoor studio space in Lexington. There's a large brown barn wall (not a real barn, think very realistic backdrop) that I'll have decorated for Fall. If you'd like I can removed some of the fall decor and have it be more neutral. I also have a old wooden fence that looks great for some of the shots.
Riverfront Park (Oct 25)- This the one with the super cool giant red doors and pump house in downtown Columbia. It also has lots of brick and a bridge, but often the entire session includes no grassy areas so keep that in mind if you're looking for very traditional.
Tree Farms- Christmas trees! Hollow Creek is in Gilbert and Drafts Tree Farm is in Lexington. I usually bring some Christmas props as well, nothing too crazy as I like you all to be the main focus so that even though there's a Christmas hint to many of the photos, they don't ALL have to be and can be used all year long!
Sesquicentennial State Park- Lots of fall colors, a bridge and pretty trees!
Riverfront Park (Cayce side in Nov)- This one is below the amphitheater in Cayce/west Columbia by the Gervais bridge. The bridge will be in the background with a beautiful walkway as well!
Red Barn/Christmas Style- This is at my outdoor studio space in Lexington. There's a large red barn wall (not a real barn, think very realistic backdrop) that I'll have decorated for Christmas. I also have a old wooden fence that looks great for some of the shots.
I think that's it, you're a peach for sticking around this email for this long! I am so happy to answer any questions you have, please feel free to text or call me if you do. My number is 803-743-7189.
Can't wait to hear from you! (REMINDER, THIS SATURDAY OR SUNDAY!)
