2021 Family Petite Holiday Session

The petite family session is for immediate family - parents and children. This session is not for extended families.
Sessions are available at Caloosahatchee Creeks Preserve located just off I-75 at Exit 143 Bayshore Rd. This location is full of natural greenery and tall grasses.
This location was mowed a few months ago and with all of the rain everything has come back gorgeous and fresh.

The photos in the advertisement are from last year. We have a new gorgeous dark green velvet sofa that I will be bringing out, the picture doesn't do it justice.
The spot I choose to shoot in for your session will depend on the lighting and if the ground is wet or not as we have had a lot of rain lately. If you would like to see other sessions done at this location copy and paste this link into your browser:

No other locations are offered. If an issue with the location arises and the location must be moved you will be notified as quickly as possible.

J. Session Requests
*No cameras/camcorders/any type of recording device (this includes cell phone cameras) are allowed during the session unless prior arrangement has been made between client and photographer, including a written agreement. The photographer will not continue if there are other cameras or video taping during the session.
*Session starts at the agreed upon time. It is strongly encouraged that client arrives 10 minutes prior to the start of session. This allows for any last-minute feeding, changing, and relaxing before session begins.
*Please do not bring any children not being photographed to the session.
*Please make sure hair is combed and face is clean and free of runny noses or eyes.
*Please avoid eating or drinking red or orange food or drinks before session, as red and orange tend to leave a stain on the face.

M. Editing
Portraits will be edited in my standard style and according to my artistic vision. Special editing requests outside of my control will be charged for at my standard rate; ie. skin discolorations, wrinkles, tan lines, items in pockets, runny noses, hair or clothing out of place.
