It is time for my 3rd annual Santa Mini Sessions! 

These are not your typical Santa session.  You are not rushed through the line or waiting for hours at the mall.  Your child will have time to actually sit and talk to Santa!  They can bring wishlists to show him and discuss.  I allot around 5 minutes per session, knowing that some are shorter and some are longer depending on how your child reacts.  My clients have raved the past two years about how relaxing our pace is.  Your child may laugh, he may cry, or he may be completely in awe.  Regardless, I will work hard to make sure we have some beautiful images to document our time together.

New this year: you will get to select your 4 images from a gallery!

If you’d like, you will also have the option to purchase additional images.  Families who do a fall half/full/newborn session with me will be gifted two extra digital images of their choice.

Full payment is due upon booking.  No refunds are given.  If you need to cancel or reschedule, please contact me and ask about transferring your balance to a future session.

To book, click the calendar button next to today’s date and choose either November 11 or 20. 

It will show you the available times, and you will be able to book immediately!

I’m waiting for this family’s gallery to upload, so I thought I’d take a few minutes and blog this session as well so the rest of you can see it, too.  For 1 year old sessions, I recommend clients go with a full session so we have enough time to do both posed portraits and a cake smash.  The combination makes for a great variety of images.  If clients choose to do a half session at 1 year, I tell them that they either need to pick the cake smash or posed images due to the time/mess (with the cake!)/outfit changes/etc.  Of course, the cake isn’t a requirement at a full session.  Last weekend, I did another 1 year old milestone full session, and the mom chose not to do a cake smash because her son had not enjoyed the cake at his party.  She knew it likely wouldn’t go well, and I appreciate that she had realistic expectations because this allowed us to incorporate some other fun items at the session.  That session is still on my editing to-do list, but hopefully I can post some of those ideas here when I’m finished.

There are a couple of my shooting spots (including this new one!) that haven’t been featured yet on the blog, so I decided today was the perfect time to share one.  To help my clients decide on an outdoor location, if they choose that over the studio, I send over links of example sessions so they can get a feel for some of the different options.  I don’t always use spaces the exact same way, of course, but it helps show what is there– trees, buildings, fences, etc.  Some clients know that they want a particular “look” based on what they are wearing or where they plan to display their images, so I have found this process to help with the decision making.  This spot is in Franklin and is eligible for both half and full sessions.

I’m so excited to debut my updated website design, so I thought I’d blog a recent studio session in honor of this occasion!  This precious girl just wrapped up her Baby’s First Year plan with this session.  Her mom wanted to switch things up, so we did sessions for her pregnancy announcement, maternity, newborn, and then 6/7 months.  One of the great things about these baby plans is that I can customize them based on the sessions and milestones you are most interested in capturing!  If you’d like more information for your family, click on “Get in Touch” above and send me a message.

Ellis brought along her big sister to this session, so we got individuals of both girls and then shots together as well.

This session was such a treat for me because it was a little out of the ordinary and this beautiful girl was such a natural at posing. Also, her eyelashes? Amazing! She will be celebrating her first communion soon, and her mother wanted to document this important milestone with a special session. We took a variety of images with her rosary and traditional praying hands then some without. The custom dress and floral crown perfectly set the stage.  I’m sharing more that normal below because this session was a dream.

I’m hosting Mommy and Me mini sessions at my Nashville studio on Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 9-11:30am.  This event is for moms and kids of all ages!   The vision for these is to focus on the beautiful relationship between a mother and her children.  Images will be emotional and tender, clearly depicting LOVE.  Mothers often shy away from being in front of the camera, but I want to change that!  Children need to see portraits of themselves with their mother.  Your little ones change so quickly, so it is important to catch them at these stages with YOU.  This will be a very calm, relaxed session.  Here are the specifics:

  • 15 minute sessions at the studio
  • 2 or 4+ image packages that both include a professionally printed 5×7 of your favorite image.
    • 2 images + 5×7 print = $100+tax
    • 4+ images + 5×7 print = $135+tax
  • All images are of mom and kids; no individual images.  You can even bring a grandmother!  How sweet would it be to have 3 generations documented in a beautiful portrait?
  • Only 10 spots available
  • Booking calendar open now: http://bit.ly/ECPbooking

I marked two years of studio shooting back in January, and man, is it fun!  I love having the opportunity to work with more families year-round because of the space.  Harper’s 1 year old shoot was lots of fun– a happy little girl plus a cake smash is hard to beat!  This sweet girl LOVED her cake and dove straight into it.  I don’t know that I’ve ever had a baby who got into the cake that quickly.  It was hysterical!  Her creative mama also brought along some fun decorations that really made the session special.  I know you’ll love seeing these images.
