Fall hearkens to the coming winter, to the end of the year, and something about the deepening cold and gray skies tugs me towards a season of slowing down again, of reading and reflecting and refocusing.
I think that makes fall one of my favorite seasons for photo sessions, not just because of the cozy sweaters and brilliant autumn leaves (though I am all about those!) but because it gives you the chance to do just that: slow down and refocus on what’s most important to you, even if it’s just for twenty minutes as you explore and cuddle and laugh with the ones you love (all while I capture these moments and emotions for you to remember and reflect on in the coming months and years).
Do you feel that tug to slow down and refocus, too? Consider scheduling a photo sessions with me this fall to gift yourself with that time. I’ll gently guide you through your session so you can focus on being present in the moment and enjoying this unique season together.
And if you want to make scheduling family photos even simpler, I’ve just opened up a day of fall mini sessions. You’ll get a head start on your Christmas card photos, plus you’ll receive a matted 8x10 fine art print of your favorite images that will be ready to pop in your favorite frame.

2019 Fall Mini Sessions
Saturday, October 12, 2019
(Location: Anita Gorman Nature Center - Kansas City, MO)
4:45 — Booked
5:15 — Booked
5:45 — Booked
6:15 — Booked
(Sunset is 6:45 p.m.)
20 minute session
8 high-resolution digital images*
1 matted 8x10 fine art print
*with the option to purchase more prints or digital images from an ordering gallery or upgrade to the full gallery.
These sessions will be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis and because there are such a limited number of them available, the full session fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your time slot.
Like my full-length sessions, these mini sessions will be lifestyle sessions, focused on the connections between you and your loved ones and those precious candid moments in between. My goal is to help you create a sweet memory together during one of the most beautiful times of the year while capturing those details you want to remember in images that you can treasure for years to come.
You may be wondering….
Why might I choose a mini session over a customized full-length session?
Maybe you had photos taken recently and just want a few updated images for Christmas cards or family gifts. Maybe a full length session is a little out of your budget right now but a lower-priced mini session is more doable for you right now. Or maybe your children are at that wiggly stage and you feel like a shorter session would be a better fit for them.
How do I sign up for a session?
Send me a message below with your first choice for a session time. Sessions will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. I will send you a confirmation email of your date and time, along with a contract and invoice. The contract will need to be signed and the invoice paid within 48 hours of receipt to hold your spot. Otherwise that slot may be opened up to another client.
Why do you have such limited times available that day?
I want you to have the best light for your session, that beautiful soft golden light that flatters your skin and adds dimension to your photos. And that light happens during the last two hours before sunset (the “golden hours”).
Can I bring my aunt/cousin/sister/grandma to my session?
Because these sessions are shorter than my typical sessions, I have to limit them to singles, couples, and immediate family (parents and children) only. If you’d like to schedule a session with your extended family, I would love to set one up with at a different time! Send me a message and we can start that process!
What should we wear?
I love to talk with clients about possible outfits for their session! What you wear definitely effects how your final images looks and the colors that stand out in them. When you book a session, I’ll send you a “what to wear” guide that I’ve put together with some tips for putting together outfits. I also invite you to send me snapshots of potential outfits you’re considering so I can help you choose outfits that are both comfortable and that photograph well.
What happens if I (or my child) get sick the day of the session?
Unfortunately, the session fee is non-refundable. However, in the case of illness or other unavoidable emergency, I may apply your session to towards the balance of a full-length session (but this would be at my discretion).
