2024 farmhouse sink minis

farmhouse sink mini

What is a “farmhouse sink” mini?  This is just a super quick mini for any little client under the age of 2 years old.  Nine months- 18m is the prime age for these!  The baby for sure needs to be sitting up solo for these to be easy and fun!  Summer time is the perfect time for these!!

Sunday, July 14th, 2024 between 4 and 6 PM!

We will be at one of my favorite locations in Jackson, GA.  Address will be given closer to the session.  It is a private home about 5 miles from the intersection of hwy 16 and I-75!

Cost is $135 for one child, and $45 for each additional sibling (must be from the same family… and 2nd sibling needs to be 3 or under).  We CAN make this a family session and do the sink pics at the end, please just let me know if you are interested in that!

Within 14 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, and this is an authentic outdoor farmhouse sink.  It is covered by a an open-air picnic shed and is one of my favorite spots!

If you would like to make this a shallow milk bath with peaches or strawberries we can do that too!  You bring the supplies!

times available: 4:00, 4:15, 4:30, 4:45, 5:00, 5:15, 5:30, 5:45, 6:00

2024 Back 2 School Sessions

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 kids 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.    We will also have the option again for ZERO props.  Those images would look more like my Simple Sessions!   This is for public, private, and home-schooled students… please share with your friends!

Sunday, August 25, 2024 between 1 and 7 PM!

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

Cost is $90 for one child, and $45 for each additional sibling (must be from the same family… cousins/buddies book separate sessions please)  This is a 15 minute session with 5 additional minutes for each extra sibling.

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, or Chromebook, 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!

2024 Stansberry Simple Sessions

What’s a simple session?  This will be my 5th 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.

***Because these will be before Valentine’s Day this year… I WILL have a few Valentine props… still pretty minimalistic, but you can use these images for you Valentine cards/posts

  • If you are an adult that just needs a headshot refresh… this would be a great time to do that!
  • What should we wear?  I recommend SIMPLE on top and jeans on the bottoms… and for the little ones, (clean) bare feet (shoes are optional).  White works for these sessions, but if you want to add some color, I would do a muted neutral color!  Dresses are great for girls to… twirly is always fun.. just think simple.

2023 Stansberry Santa Session

Santa Sessions @ the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin, GA

Saturday, Sunday, & Monday

$175 for your session with Santa

****all spots are full, but I currently do not have a waiting list.  There are always last minute cancelations and I typically get everyone in!  Be sure to still fill out the form, or email me at stansberryphotography@gmail.com

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

This is a REAL SANTA (same since 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! Mrs. Claus (his actual wife) will also plan to join us again 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 10 at a time.

*please be mindful of your child’s nap schedule when emailing your requests. *dancers participating in GBT’s Nutcracker might want to opt for EARLY Saturday AM or late afternoon, or Sunday before 2pm.

$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  a craft and coloring table.

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!   Last year we had so many on the waiting list that we added Monday morning.  We will do this again if the need is there!  So if sat/sun are out for you, but you COULD do Monday, please fill out the form and make note of that!

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 kids 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.    We will also have the option again for ZERO props.  Those images would look more like my Simple Sessions!   This is for public, private, and home-schooled students… please share with your friends!
