{short story} Mother’s Day Short Story sessions are booking now!


Mother’s Day Short Story sessions are here!

I LOVE capturing images of mothers with their children. I *know* exactly how amazing it feels to hold your wiggly little munchkin in your arms. To know how changed you are, in body and soul, by their presence in your life. To catch their eyes and make them smile. I want you to have that moment, that feeling, in photos that freeze time. Photos that celebrate the connection you’ve nurtured with each of your children, and honor all you’ve done.



The details:

Your Short Story Session will include 15-20 minutes of photography time together at one of three beautiful locations, focused on mama and the little ones (dad can be a few pictures too), in a lush morning or evening garden setting. I’ll have a little treat for each mom – decadent cake pops from Baked By Yael. After your session, you’ll receive a private gallery of proofs from your session, hand picked and beautifully edited, and a personal ordering session to select your Mother’s Day Collection. Collections are described below.

Q) Can you really capture beautiful photos in just 15 minutes?

A) Absolutely! Take a look at one family’s gallery from April’s Cherry Blossom Short Story sessions – all captured in just 15 minutes. http://redturtlephotography.pixieset.com/alexandreandmamainthecherryblossoms/

Q) Can I have hair and make-up as part of my mini-session package?

A) I am working on it! I want to include this option and have an amazing MUA that I am working with to try and accommodate make up for moms who would like it! If I can work it out, the hair + makeup will be $125.  And believe me, she’s worth every penny!

Q) What can a print credit be used for? 

A) A print credit can be applied to the purchase of any items in my a la carte menu, including prints, framed prints, canvas wall art, albums and gifts.

Q) What is a matted folio? 

A) A matted folio is a pair of prints mounted in a cover – like a book without pages, and your beautiful prints on two inside panels surrounded by a thick creamy mat. You’ll get to choose the color of the silk fabric cover. Perfect for display, standing open, or laying closed on a table where it invites friends and guest to peek inside and be delighted by the gorgeous photographs you chose. I included this item because it makes such a wonderful gift, and this session is all about gifting mom with a wonderful shoot and a cherished memory in pictures. While folios are not a standard item I offer, Mother’s Day clients will have the option to purchase additional folios at a special price. Here’s what a folio looks like:



Q) This all sounds fantastic! How do I book a session?

A) Contact me! I can’t wait to work with you.
