2022 Dance minis

Dance Minis @ the Bailey Tebault House

When?  Saturday, April 30th 9-2

Who? Any dancers 

$$$$?  $80 and up per dancer

This includes an online gallery of a minimum of 10 high resolution images and a print release

How do you sign up?

Option 1 is for ONE dancer:

$80 – 1 dancer one costume (this can also be a practice leo if you prefer over the costume), 15 minutes
$50 – add on 2nd costume and 10 more minutes (you would have one full 30 minute slot to allow a bit of time for changing)
Option 2 is for TWO dancers from the same immediate family (sisters or brother/sister):
$130 – 2 dancers, one costume 15 minutes.  Will include singles and together
$50 – add on 2nd costume and 10 minutes (you would have a full 30 minutes to allow time for change)
If you would like to have a buddy pic with another dancer, you would need to let me know in advance so i can make arrangements to have you side by side in the schedule.
We ask that only ONE parent come to help.
There will be TWO dancers assigned to each 30 minutes.  That way as one is changing the other can be in front of the camera.  We haven’t been able to do this method for a few years, because of Covid.

For an example of what you can expect please click HERE!

These sessions are what YOU make them.  Some mamas like the “hair down/no make-up” natural look, but you are welcome to do hair UP and full make-up “recital ready” look!  Totally up to you!   I recommend you do hair and make-up at home!

It seems as if our local studio may not have all costumes in, this is why we have 3 options.  If your dancer has a costume, or if you prefer to do the practice leo/tights combo, please choose April 23rd.

Saturday April 30th Dance Mini @ the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin

9:00, 9:30, 10:00, 10:30, 11:00, 11:30, 12:00, 12:30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:00,

If you don’t see anything that works, or what you would love if booked… BE SURE to ask to be on the waiting list!  Those people will get first dibs as things open up, and there is always a chance i will offer MORE sessions as we move into the spring!

Please use the form below to let me know your top three session time preferences!  If you are flexible then maybe just say “Saturday April 23rd between 10-12”

What’s a simple session?  This will be my 3rd year offering these sessions!  They will take place at the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin and are just as it says, simple.  No props will be used, just your child and his/her personality!  If you are familiar with my back2school sessions, this will have a similar feel, but NO props!  I love doing these sessions and I hope you will come out and try something new!  You will receive ALL images in color and black and white.  These could also be used as an heirloom portrait if you want to dress your little one in a more traditional outfit!  To see a sample of last years session please click here.

  • If you are an adult that just needs a headshot refresh… this would be a great time to do that!

****Update!!!  ALL SPOTS ARE FULL!  Please be sure to fill out the form to be added to the waiting list.  There will be people who fail to pay a deposit, and there will be people who will drop due to illness or conflict!******

Saturday and Sunday, November 20/21

$150 for your session with Santa

Online downloadable gallery with a minimum of 5 images posted within 14 days of your session

This is a REAL SANTA (same as 2020), a very sweet and patient man who has grandchildren of his own.  He loves kids, and reminded me the most of my Santa Johnny (2009-2019).   The look and feel will still be classic and simple, here is a link to last year’s session so you can see and get a feel for it!    The set up is perfect for clothing that is more formal/traditional all the way down to pjs and slippers!    It will be pretty similar to last year and it will always be more about the children and Santa than it will be about what is surrounding him!  We will also have a “socially distant” option, if you prefer for your child to not sit ON his lap!  At this moment, we do hope to be able to sit WITH/ON Santa when possible, but we are also keeping an eye on the Covid situation in our county.  We want to do what is best for our kids and for Santa! 

Mrs. Claus (his actual wife) will also plan to join us for a special story time.  This doesn’t cost extra, but we do need to know if you are interested!  Be sure to select the the Mrs. Claus option below.  It will be in the “old” Santa room and will run in 15 minute segments for those who are interested.  The story time will be AFTER we visit with Santa!  There will be a max of about 6-8 kids (or less) at a time.  Again, this option may change depending on the Covid situation!  Mrs. Claus is very important in the North Pole, so we need to do what is best for her too!  Full disclosure, they did a vaccine workshop at the North Pole!  Santa and Mrs. Claus have been vaccinated and the helpers that work directly with the kids are also vaccinated… 

*please be mindful of your child’s nap schedule when emailing your requests.

$50 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit will be due within 2 weeks once your session is confirmed.  You will receive an online link with your confirmation.

I accept check, cash, and credit/debit (via Paypal or Venmo)

In the event of timing issues due to children who are scared, there will be refreshments (pre-bagged and boxed) and crafts for children while waiting.

Our goal is to be patient and creative when it comes to children who are nervous!

Use the form below to let me know your ideal time for your session, I will do my best to get you on or close to that time!  If you are flexible it is easier for me if you can give me a “window”.  Use the drop down box in the form for options! That will help me get you a spot without having to text/call and risk loosing the space!

Sessions are for immediate family only. If you want to do some with cousins or friends involved, you must book Santa TWO session back to back!

2021 Back-2-School minis

back2school minis

What is a “back 2 school” mini?  This is just a super quick mini option open first for my “current clients” who have young children going back to school this month!  It is for kids of any age technically, but the “props” are geared more towards preK-upper elementary!  If your kids are older we can still have a “back to school” feel… just without the “little” props.  Speaking of props, due to Covid, again this year these will be trimmed down tremendously for a few reasons.  They will need to be cleaned in between sessions, AND my usual set up makes that back hallway crowded!  We will also have the option again for ZERO props, but these families would be scheduled at the end of the day!  I do have a few new things up my sleeve for this year though!

Sunday, August 22, 2021 between 2 and 6 PM!

We will be on the back hallway of the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin (rain or shine)!

Cost is $80 for one child, and $40 for each additional sibling (must be from the same family… cousins/buddies book separate sessions please)  This is a 15 minute session with 10 additional minutes for each extra sibling.

Please use the form below to let me know your top 3 choices.  If you don’t have a preference, just let me know that ANY time is fine!  Please also be sure to let me know if you want NO PROPS… like i said, these would be pushed to the end of the day.

Within 21 days, you will receive a minimum of 10 edited high resolution images on an online gallery to download!!

What you can expect… cute pics of your kiddos.  I am not a photographer that relies on props to fill the space in the picture.  Your kiddo is the primary focus, so dress them ready for the “first day of school” and bring them to have a little fun! If you have your own props or favorite book (big or little), back pack, felt letter-board bring those and we will try and work them in!!!

I would say the colors fit with both bright and muted primary colors!  Click here for an example from last year!

times available: Back to School w/ Props 1:00,1:20,1:40, 2:00, 2:20, 2:40, 3:00, 3:20, 3:40, 4:00, 4:20, 4:40, 5:00 Back to School no Props (same as my Simple Sessions) 5:20, 5:40, 6:00, 6:20, 6:40, 7:00

Please use the form below to request your top three time slots!  If you are flexible that day, it is great to know that too!  You can say “any time WITH props” or “any time withOUT props” if you are extra flexible!

2021 Spring Ballet/Dance minis

Dance Minis @ the Bailey Tebault House

When?  Sunday, April 18th

Who? Any area dancers 

$$$$?  $80 and up per dancer

This includes an online gallery of a minimum of 10 high resolution images and a print release

How do you sign up?

Option 1 is for ONE dancer:
$80 – 1 dancer one costume (this can also be a practice leo if you prefer over the costume), 15 minutes
$50 – add on 2nd costume and 10 more minutes (you would have one full 30 minute slot to allow a bit of time for changing)
Option 2 is for TWO dancers from the same immediate family (sisters or brother/sister):
$130 – 2 dancers, one costume 20 minutes.  Will include singles and together
$50 – add on 2nd costume and 15 minutes (you would have a full 40 minutes to allow time for change)
If you would like to have a buddy pic with someone in your “covid bubble” you would need to let me know in advance so i can make arrangements to have you side by side in the schedule.
We ask that only ONE parent come to help keep numbers down.  In the past it didn’t matter much but we have had both parents and grands show up sometimes but the BT director would like for me to keep numbers as low as possible.  Adults and dancers 10 and up will need to wear a mask (while not being photographed)

For an example of what you can expect please click HERE!

These sessions are what YOU make them.  Some mamas like the “hair down/no make-up” natural look, but you are welcome to do hair UP and full make-up “recital ready” look!  Totally up to you!   I recommend you do hair and make-up at home!

Sunday April 18th Dance Mini @ the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin
1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30,3:00, 3:30, 4:00, 4:30,5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00
