Whoa Nelly!!! It's time for Fall and Holiday planning

It has been a crazy summer! Where do I start?! I have been so busy that I didn’t even get a chance to post anything in August or September! Between processing over 500 meticulously crafted images for professional Santa’s who use my photos for promoting their services, 4 weddings (one was in Mexico), several studio sessions, and building 4 websites while also summer vacationing with my family and preparing to become the PTA President for my daughters school - my summer simply evaporated!

 The best part about summer - SWIMMING!

School started mid-August, and lately I have been in “Mom” mode while I have been getting the PTA rolling, organizing the Reflections program for the Springfield Council of PTAs, and trying to wrap up the last of the Santa sessions. While some would find my life and schedule stressful, I enjoy being busy. Everything I do is a labor of love and worth every moment. Sometimes I wish I could be 2 places at once, but then that is the plight of every Mom. I only have a few more precious years until my little one will want her independence to spend more time with her friends, which is why the PTA thing is important to me.

Therefore, I won’t be offering any Quicktakes this year for Fall or Halloween. I may offer one in December, but I cannot make any promises at this time. I do have a cute idea, so hopefully I will have some time to make it happen (cross your fingers).

I’m really excited about my Four Seasons holiday set, starting in November. It’s a “star gazing” set where the theme is “Stars brightly shining”. I hope to start working on the set this weekend, so check my Facebook or Instagram pages for my progress. Now is a good time to grab a premium spot, as my weekends are starting to fill.  I am offering a Fall Four Seasons session at Big Cedar this year on October 12 & 13th, currently I only have 3 spots remaining.

 

What is a Four Seasons session? They are specialty sessions where the background/set or location is available on a limited engagement. The session fee is $100, and each sitting is approximately 45 minutes. I will photograph a variety of poses, typically showcasing 25+ images for you to make your selection. Digital copies are sold separately starting at 5 poses for $150 or 10 poses for $250, additional poses can be purchased for $25 each.

 During October, I am offering some evening sessions during the week for $250 at a local park. It includes session fee and 10 poses of your choice - great for families or siblings!

Last year we offered a limited number of “Santa Experience” sessions due to Santa’s busy schedule! This year Santa has expanded his availability to offer a few more sessions starting in October. Now is the time to book, especially if you want your photos ready for the holiday season! Visit our Santa Experience website at www.springfieldsantaexperience.com for more details!
