2022 Back to 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!  I do have a few new things up my sleeve for this year though!  This is for public, private, and home-schooled students… please share with your friends!

Sunday, August 21, 2022 between 3 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.

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, 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!

times available: Back to School w/ Props 1:00, 1:15, 1:30, 1:45, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45, 3:00, 3:15, 3:30, 3:45, 4:00, 4:15, 4:30, 4:45, 5:00, 5:15, 5:30, 5:45, 6:00, 6:15, 6:30, 6:45

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!

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”

2022 Simple Sessions

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!

2019 back2school minis

back2school minis

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.

Sunday, August 25, 2019 between 2 and 6 PM!

We will be on the back hallway of the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin (same spot as Santa’s cupcakes with Mrs. Claus)

Cost is $60 for one child, and $30 for each additional sibling (must be from the same family… cousins 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!

You will receive a minimum of 5 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 (FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL) 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:

1:10, 1:35, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45, 3:00, 3:15, 3:30, 3:45, 4:00, 4:15,4:30,4:45, 5:00, 5:15, 5:30, 5:45, 6:00
