as we always do this time of year, we are so excited to meet new families as well as see old friends that we have worked with for years. if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us and we look forward to working with all of you!

last year our dear friend susan suggested that if we were doing fall mini sessions, then perhaps we may want to shoot them at her family’s apple orchard – vessey orchards. prior to that, we had been using the same locations for some time and we thought switching it up might be a good idea. little did we know how much not only we, but our clients would love it there! it’s the perfect spot and susan’s husband jonathan was awesome, as usual, and brought us some hay bales out to the trees. when we first announced these sessions via the blog and facebook, we immediately started filling up. only during our annual santa paws event have we booked up so quick! some of the families that joined us had attended the minis last year and it was so great to see how their families have grown since then. we also welcomed many new families – some of whom were past wedding clients, which was so cool. probably one of the most special parts of the day was photographing the first photos of two newborns – our friends chrissy and kevin with their little girl zoe and our hosts susan and jonathan with baby camden :) we are so happy that so many of you joined us in the orchard for such a wonderful day and can’t wait for next year!

thank you all for such a wonderful afternoon! and a special thanks to susan+jonathan – we love you guys xoxo

it’s that time of year again! as the weather cools, folks are thinking about family photos and holiday cards. every year we block out a full day to do mini sessions where we stay in one location and can accommodate a bunch of our awesome clients :) this year our dear friend susan had an amazing idea and offered her family’s gorgeous orchard, vessey orchards  as one of this year’s destinations. complete with hay bales and a stunning fall afternoon, we had the pleasure of working with so many fabulous families. we had kids of all ages and pups of all sizes who made the day that much more fun! thank you again susan for being you and such an awesome hostess – we love you!!

If you follow us on the blog or on facebook then you know we recently had our fall mini sessions.  Liv and I were so stoked for the weekend because we knew we’d be working with some of our favorite clients plus meeting new friends who were joining us for minis for the first time.  We love mini sessions because it gives us the opportunity to work with a lot of different people at the same time.  Despite windy and sometimes chilly conditions, our clients were amazing to work with as always.  If you weren’t able to make it to our fall mini sessions keep an eye out on the blog for our Mother’s Day minis coming this spring! :)

 

We had so much fun with you guys!  We barely paid attention to the hazards of the job ( ie: seagull attacts and sand drifts – love you liv ;) )
