This year I wanted to try something fun… Old School Sessions (think Little Rascals). Kids love dressing up and are so animated when they get into character making great images as we have a blast together. Since it is a busy time of year (school starting… and like a million other things) and I want to keep this simple. I am offering digital packages this time. (Whoa, hold the phone!) I may do something like this once or twice a year, and I will have prints and products for you to look at and purchase if you wish at the session. These sessions are 15 minutes per child or sibling group and are $150 for 8 fully edited digital images with a signed print release form so you can print to your hearts delight. The editing on these will be a more vintage style then my normal editing, and will be sent to you via You Send It, or CD (your choice). You can purchase more images then the 8 if you like after the session in digital or print form. These are going to be soooo much cooler then the typical “sit on a stool and smile with a grey backdrop” pictures. We are creating memories together, not just taking photos.
This session is perfect for preschool-6th grade. Clothing should be simple and timeless, lots of stores have plaid skirts and dresses for girls, and plaid shirts for boys with holy jeans or slacks. Uniform type outfits are in style right now as well. I know it’s hot but cardigans, and Letterman jackets are great for a more preppie school boy or girl look. I did purchase several bow ties, 2 newsboys hats, glasses, suspenders, and a couple pairs of fake glasses, just to have on hand for the sessions and you are welcome to any of them. I noticed The Children’s Place had several outfits that would work as well.
The sessions will be from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm (for the best light in that spot) and the location is at my barn at 704 Iowa in Holton. (outdoors and yep, I have a barn in town… it’s really neat and historic!) There will be a vintage desk set up as well as an old map backdrop set up and I will do the photos in both spots for each session. There are just a few spots open, BUT I will add another date if I need to, and I am anticipating adding this extra date already.
Session spots are reserved after your payment, first come first serve. I am so excited to offer these! We are going to have a blast!!
If you decide to purchase the session, please click the pay pal button below and then comment in the comment section of this blog on the time that you bought. I will update this post as well to show the time slots that have been purchased already.
The following images are of my own “big kids”, as well as Charlotte’s friend Tuley who was spending the night and agreed to model for me. After we dressed up and took the images Tuley said to me, “That was so much fun!”. The goal was to get these images as an example’s for you and to show you what you can expect, and I was so happy to hear she had fun too, that is always my goal. E-mail me with any questions, and I will do my best to get back to you right away.
