It’s the time of year! {Holiday Mini Portrait Sessions}

We are technically still in summer, but just as pumpkin flavored everything has erupted everywhere, my thoughts are turning to holiday portrait sessions. I’m sure you’re thinking “the kids just went back to school, we’re still settling into our routines, no way am I thinking about the holidays”. I get it, we’re mid September. But wasn’t it just July???

The months fly by and next thing you know, it’s mid December wondering how on earth you’ll get your holiday cards out in time and maybe you’ll just do New Year’s cards (nothing wrong with that!) and why on earth didn’t you just schedule your portrait session in September?!?!?!?!

Let’s get it taken care of now, get it done on a weekend before things really get so tight that you won’t have time. With the popularity of the mini sessions last year, I’m bringing them back again this year. It’s 30 minutes of photography in a South Bay (Los Angeles!) location-El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, the Palos Verdes peninsula, and even Long Beach. Those of you who have worked with me in the past know that I work quickly and we make the absolute most of those 30 minutes and you’ll receive a web gallery of proofs where you can select your favorite 15 images. I’ll take those 15 images, give them a bit of a retouch and send you the full high resolution images so you can print cards, give them as gifts and even print them to hang and display around the house.

Do you live elsewhere but still want a mini session? Call me, text me, email me, message me, and we can talk about a location that works best for your family.

The 30 minute South Bay Holiday Portrait Mini Session includes 15 full resolution images is $250.

This year I have also partnered with an amazing online card printing company, Basic Invite, and for those booking and ordering their cards in September and October, I am happy to offer 40% off your card order. Yep, you read that right 40% OFF HOLIDAY CARDS!!!!

You will receive the code in your gallery link email.

These cards are not only stunning with wonderful card stock and quality printing, but they are affordable as well!!! Woohoo!
Let’s connect and get your holiday portraits in the books, cross this off your list before you even have to add it on there to begin with.

Holiday Cards – {Holiday Portrait Photography}

It’s the last day of summer. That makes me sad a little bit, but excited at the same time. Fall is one of my favorite times of year, the slight chill in the air-and being in SoCal, I mean slight! There’s even a fall-like smell in the air. With fall comes time for Holiday Portraits! Schedule your holiday portraits now and receive special discounts on your Holiday Card order!

I custom design Holiday cards for each client. We sit down during your personal ordering session and talk about the look and feel you would like for your cards; they can vary from fun and bright to simple and classic. 

Here are some samples of Holiday Cards from last year:

The B Kids at Conejo Creek Park {Thousand Oaks Kids Photography}

I met up with the B kids yesterday at my new favorite spot at the Conejo Creek Park in Thousand Oaks.

I have driven past this little spot on my way to the larger part of the park, and yesterday we decided to give it a shot, and I love love love what we got! There is a little creek that flows around the park, and it’s filled with ducks. It is so pretty there!

These kids were so well behaved and posed for me like little pros! 

Check them out, and I think you’ll agree, these little ones are cute! I love the outfits!

shhh, don’t tell dad, these portraits are gifts for Christmas!
