I’ve gone through my fall calendar leading into the holidays and wanted to give a heads up about availability in case you were wishing you could squeeze in a family session but thought it might be too late. I typically offer regular full-length sessions (that I’ve termed below the “Signature Family Session”), but I’ve decided to offer two blocks of time in early November for mini sessions for those who may not need a full session and are mainly just looking for a nice family picture and a few shots of the kids together.
Mini Sessions – I am planning to do a limited number of weekend mini sessions on Sat., Nov. 7th. and Sat., Nov. 14th (4 afternoon minis each date). The price is $325 for a 20-min. session and includes 8 final, edited digital files. Location to be determined closer to the date, but most likely will be in the Evanston/Wilmette/Winnetka area. Mini sessions typically yield a few posed family shots and kids together. Depending on how the timing goes with the family/siblings shots, I can sometimes squeeze in quick individual kids’ pictures as well. Mini sessions are great for getting a nice picture for your holiday card but have far less variety than you will get with a full session.
To get on the list for a mini session, please complete the form available here and I will get in touch with you.
Signature Family Sessions – the session fee ($200) + digital files ($650) is $850 total with the option to buy prints, canvases, wood prints, albums, etc. These typically last about an hour, which allows time to capture candid + posed pictures of your family together, kids together, and individual kids. My family galleries from a full session typically have a minimum of 40+ images, often more depending on how many kids are in your family. These sessions feel more relaxed and give little ones more time to warm up, and there is a nice variety of images. You also get to choose the location (I have lots of great recommendations for beautiful spots in the area) and these are scheduled when the light is the prettiest.
To inquire about a signature session, complete the form available here and I will get in touch with you.
Remaining Fall Availability (these are scheduled about 1.5 to 2 hours before sunset depending on the light that day):
*If my weekend minis book up quickly, I will offer my available weeknight dates for mini sessions. Feel free to email me (email@example.com) if you would like a mini on one of the weeknights!
