Let's Celebrate Mothers.
Let's Celebrate YOU.
As mamas, we work around-the-clock with little thanks. And, in general, we're okay with that, right? We make breakfast - a waffle for this one, cheese eggs for that one. We get them off to school (barely some days), stay at home with the young one. We get Cheerios in our hair, throw up on our hands (gross) and receive the brunt of tantrums.
But we also get - and give - some really good love. Snuggles. Eskimo kisses. Arms thrown around our necks asking for comfort that only we can provide. Sloppy cheek kisses and giant family hugs.
And, eventually, they grow out of a lot of those things - some for the better, some for the sadder.
So, let me introduce CELEBRATE MOTHERS. The Mother's Day project that gets YOU in the frame with your bundles of joy simply loving on each other, and then creates beautiful artwork with those images so you can look back when your children have grown.
Before your session, both you and your kiddos will be given paper and pen to write (or draw) answers to these questions:
MOM: What do you want to remember about your children at the age they are right now?
KIDS: What do you love about your mom.

CELEBRATE MOTHER’S FAQ:
HOW DO WE BOOK?
You can see the available session dates and times and reserve your session at this link. You will need to fill out the “day/time” in the empty box, and check out with a credit card.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
I will send out detailed instructions on how to dress after you book your session! I definitely suggest NOT going “matchy-matchy." and instead, balance a color palette of multiple colors and patterns to look great together. And, always dress in what makes you comfortable and makes you feel great. Try not to force outfits on kiddos who don't want to wear them.
WHAT IS THE 8X10 ARTIST'S CHOICE WORD & IMAGE COLLAGE?
It is a collage of yours and your child's/children’s answers from the session. I scan the handwritten/drawn letters and put them in a collage with my favorite single image (artist's choice) from your session. This 8x10 is heartwarming, and really what the session is all about!
HOW DO I USE MY PRINT CREDIT AND ORDER MORE PRINTS FROM THE SESSION?
2-3 weeks after your session, I will place 10-15 images from your session in a password-protected online gallery. I will notify you through email, and you will have two weeks to use your print credit to place your order.
WHEN SHOULD WE ARRIVE AT THE SESSION?
I recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before your scheduled session time so that you can fill out your questionnaire. Since the sessions are on such a tight schedule, anyone arriving more than 5 minutes late for their session will forfeit their session retainer.
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE NEED TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE?
Because I have such a limited time frame for these portraits, the session retainer is non-refundable. If I have more available dates specific to the Celebrate Mothers sessions, I can reschedule as long as you give me at least 48 hours notice. No-shows forfeit the entire session retainer. Anybody more than 5 minutes late for their session will forfeit their session retainer.
CAN I GIVE THIS SESSION AS A GIFT TO MY WIFE OR MOTHER?
Absolutely! Just go through the checkout process and book at this link, using your own information. After you successfully purchase the session, pop me an email at email@example.com (or respond to your confirmation email) letting me know you are using this as a gift. At that point I’ll mail you a certificate you can give as a gift.
CAN I INCLUDE ME, MY KIDS, MY MOTHER, MY SIBLINGS, AND MY GRANDMOTHER?
You sure can, however, any group with more than 6 people need to purchase two back-to-back sessions. A larger group will take longer to photograph, to fill out the question and answer form, etc. You will get the complete benefit of two sessions (double the product credit and two identical word and image collages).
CAN I INCLUDE MY HUSBAND OR PARTNER?
Celebrate Mothers sessions are for moms and their kids only. If you want dad or partner in there, shoot me a message to get information about booking a full lifestyle session! These sessions also include photos of your children together, individuals of your children, and you and your partner.
Exact address will be emailed directly.
