while my internal calendar is stuck back in may sometime... i've come to accept that mini-session season is upon us! and so i've blocked off saturday, october 14th, offering a few in-home sessions in the morning and a handful of beach sessions that evening. details below - they're already half full so grab 'em while the gettin's hot.

WHEN : Saturday, October 14th

WHAT YOU GET : 30 minute lifestyle session. you get a personal online image gallery and a code to download the hi-res digital negatives. a half hour of laughs and a lifetime of memories.

Option One : yo' house. within the walls where you love, chase, laugh, cry, teach, fight and makeup - images like thisThere will be 4 of these available 8-11am. travel fee outside of los angeles
Option Two : Late afternoon at Pointe Dume Beach in Malibu. images like this. There will be 4 of these available 4-6pm.

WHY : because your babies are only this little once. because one day they'll ask "what was I like when I was four?" because you've made enough excuses. because you have three children now but have only documented the first one. because you look great and need to be in the photos for once. let me know if you need more reasons. 
HOW MUCH : $350 cool ones
HOW TO BOOK : reply with your choice of session (home or beach) and ideal time. 

Backyard Extravaganza

An uncharacteristic Saturday afternoon blog post - we're getting ready to leave for Italy on Monday (!!!!!), and I couldn't wait to share these photos with our good friends. If their being from the south wasn't enough for me to instantly love Gene and Betsy, their smock-dressed, curly-blonde-headed children would have done it. I had such a blast hanging out with Keeny and Knox and their Tennessee cousins, Drews and Kate -- a late afternoon playhouse, bed-jumping, sprinkler-running, Popsicle extravaganza is my idea of a fabulous photo session. What a fun opportunity to capture families in the midst of their beautiful every day lives. So grateful for your friendship, B&G!

Confession : if I thought that Kate's pink tutu bathing suit would fit me, I might have stolen it.
