I’m excited to announce my 2013 Studio Mini Sessions at my studio in Fair Oaks!  I love having the studio after spending so many years working only on location.  I still love doing outdoor portraits also, but it’s nice to have an option for families with very small children, and the chilly winter months.  I am planning three “sets” for the children, all Christmas/holiday themed.  I will have lots of cute props – tutus, petti rompers, hairbows, hats and more, for your little ones to use for their session.  I am offering this to children under four only, no parents or adults.  If you want to have older siblings pop in for an image or two, that will be fine, but the sets will be created with the tiny ones in mind, ages 3 months to 4 years (up to three children).

UPDATED – I have a few additions and changes to these special Studio Mini Sessions. Please bear with me, this is a lot to read.

I was on Facebook a few days ago and in my feed, I saw a photo of a friend with a baby that looked to be in a hospital bed. I was curious, so I clicked on the post. I found a family that has moved me to get involved and help in any way that I can. Little Reagan was just released from the hospital this week. She is just eight months old, and has Spinal Muscular Atrophe (SMA Type 1). She was just diagnosed in July. From her mom on their Facebook page “The light of our life, our beautiful daughter Reagan, is now fighting for her life. SMA is a horrible genetic disease that is typically fatal before the age of two. We love our baby and refuse to let her go without a fight.”. From the moment I read it, I was so touched and really felt a need to help them in any way that I could.

Please become a fan of her page.

I have decided that with every Christmas Studio Mini Session that I book, $100.00 will go directly to Reagan’s family to help offset the cost of her care. She is home with her parents, and has a lot of fighting still left to do. I cannot wait to meet her and her family in the next few weeks, and share more about them with you. There are 40 spots available, and if we fill them all, we will be able to give $4000.00 to her family.  Right now, the family is in need of a vehicle large enough to handle Reagan’s specialized car seat, breathing machine, and other equipment necessary for transporting her to appointments.  I hope this will help!

Please contact me to schedule a session, and be sure to join her page!

I will also be offering full 45 minute Holiday Family Sessions on November 3rd, 4th and 5th for families who want full outdoor sessions.  The rate on these is $495.00 and they will come with a one hour shoot in Fair Oaks, and a CD of images (approximately 15 images).  $150.00 from each of these sessions will be donated to Reagan and her family.   I have 14 sessions available, so this is another $2100. that can go to her family if all of the spots are filled.

Support for Reagan - SMA Type I

Little Paxton was in the studio at just nine sweet days old… I love how sweet and curly he was!  He slept for his entire session… love it!

Loved working with these darling little twinners! They were only 15 days old, so they slept like a charm for me and let me move them around the whole time! So cute and sweet! Mom and dad wanted the session in-home, instead of in the studio, so I traveled to them. I love having the studio, but it was fun for me to get out, and photograph their family shots inside of their gorgeous nursery. Thanks for having me, and congratulations to the new family of four!
