Summer Family Mini Sessions

ColliverMiniWebSm-11_stomped

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be doing another round of family mini sessions, this time in June.  Mini sessions are perfect for young families who want a set of classic but casual outdoor portraits but don’t want to spend hours in front of a camera.   They are only 20 minutes long and usually result in about 10 images ready to be printed and framed.

But if you want to know the dates, pricing, and more info, you’ll need to signup for the family newsletter list by clicking here.   I promise it’s free, non-spammy, and provides a nice jolt of color to your inbox every couple months.  Newsletter subscribers get first dibs on mini sessions, and the last round booked VERY quickly (in one day), so don’t procrastinate about this… click that link and get signed up NOW!  I’ll be sending out the sign-up info this weekend!

Feeding Your Photographer

I wrote this post out in September and decided to shelve it for a while.  I forgot all about it until a week or two ago, when an article advising couples not to feed the photographer or other wedding vendors who are…
