Important Mini Session Dates!

Good afternoon! I just wanted to go ahead and set dates for the remaining mini sessions of the season!

November 1 will be Fall Minis. These will likely be 20 minute sessions at an outdoor location; most likely in Fultondale. They will be $100 and will be a great opportunity for updated family pictures, engagement pictures, Christmas gifts, updated pictures of the kids – you get the idea! There will be no theme here, just a perfect time for some beautiful new pictures!

November 8 will be the one and only date for Santa sessions this year. Most of these times have already been prescheduled, but I do have about 8 time slots left. I will likely be releasing those sign ups later today. They will be in Fultondale, 10 minute sessions, and $65.

November 22 and 28 will be Christmas Minis. I am planning on having these at a BEAUTIFUL indoor location here in Hayden. I am planning on having two options: Christmas PJs/bed/storytime and a more formal, in front of the fireplace, beautiful setting. It is possible, depending on demand, that I will also offer these for one date in December. I would also like to incorporate some “Santaless” Santa pictures. I have some cute ideas for these! These sessions will be GREAT for Christmas cards!! For these, I’m thinking either 10 or 15 minutes, and likely $50-$75. I’ll nail down these details soon!

The way I best plan is through FEEDBACK! Tell me what you want! Tell me what you love! The more feedback I have, the more I will be able to offer for you guys!!

Be on the lookout for the sign ups for these upcoming sessions! They usually go fast!

Only 70 more sleeps til Christmas! Not much longer to have your Christmas pictures made! 🙂

“Will You Marry Me?” ~a proposal story


When Josh contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I would be able to photograph his proposal to his girlfriend, Niki, I could not WAIT to say YES! What a special moment to have captured for you to cherish forever! Brownie points for my man, Josh!

He had the entire thing planned out perfectly. I met his sister, Kami at The Great Pumpkin Patch in Hayden, we set it up the way he asked, and hid. (If you were there, yes, that was us hiding in the field of sunflowers!) Not long after, Josh and Niki showed up and made the long, slow walk up the hill and across the field to the most perfect little spot….

The smile on Niki’s face was so beautiful! I could feel the happiness radiating from her as they got closer!

The ring was waiting for them on the stem of a tiny little pumpkin … it was perfect!
