This is a VERY happy post because I get to share NEW sessions and photos with you!! I mentioned in a previous social media post that since the majority of our weddings for this season have been rescheduled to next year, we have suddenly found ourselves with a summer schedule that is MUCH more open than it ever has been! For the past several years, we have not been able to book new clients for family or maternity sessions because the unfortunate part about living in a state with a very condensed warm season is that weddings/family sessions/portrait sessions/etc all take place at the SAME time! We just didn’t have the capacity with our busy wedding and engagement session schedule to add in additional shoots.
But … now we do!
In that same post, I mentioned that 10% of all portrait sessions sales in 2020 will be donated to organizations directly serving those most affected by COVID-19. We will be rotating donations between Middleton Outreach Ministry, Blue Plate Catering’s ‘Feed the Frontlines’ initiative, and the ‘Farm to Families Fund’ launched by REAP Food Group and Roots4change. In June, we were able to donate $280 to these three incredible organizations! If you would like to book a family or portrait session for this summer, be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! : )
In addition to the sessions below (which, by the way, include a few family sessions and a PROPOSAL!!!), we were also able to hold our Summer Mini Sessions at the end of June, where we photographed seven wonderful families! You can see the photos from those sessions in this blog post all about our June 2020 Minis!
To conclude this post, I have to let you know about a GIVEAWAY that we are currently running RIGHT NOW!
