What’s the difference between a Full Signature Session & a Fall Mini Session? | Lynchburg Family Photographer

What’s the difference between a Full Signature Session & a Fall Mini Session? | Lynchburg Family Photographer

Booking opens for my fall session calendar on August 27th! I have 12 only openings available for fall mini sessions this year. One of the most common questions I have received recently is What Exactly is the Difference Between a Full Session and a Mini Session? Today I will be answering this question as well as a few other FAQs that have come through!

Kevin & Kailyn | Lynchburg Portrait Photographer

I have been thoroughly enjoying my fall season of work. Of course, there's always a balance to be found between wanting to spend time with my family and needing to work on the computer, but couples like Kevin and Kailyn make the working part a lot more fun. 

Fall portrait session re-cap and other things that are happening around here.

My fall season was packed with such fun and lovable clients! In the next few weeks I'll be sharing full sessions here on the blog, but for now I wanted to share a quick recap of what I've been doing these past few months. First things, first....! Ahhh there are a LOT of things going on behind the scenes with Sincerely, Liz! It'll be a couple of months before the big announcements are made, but there are some major business structural changes happening (anyone notice the subtle name change of the Facebook Page?? ;)). We're super busy working on a new office space (!!), a new website (!!), and lots of other improvements here and there. Oh and there have been a few additions to the team...! I'll be sharing a ton more after the new year (it's SO hard to wait), so definitely stay tuned.

For now... here's a glimpse of some of the pretty faces I'll be blogging in the next few weeks!

The talented and always cute, Crystal George:

One of my 2013 interns (!!), Chelsea:

Sunday's sweet nanny and her family, the Earl's:

Ed & Kat, one of my 2013 couples:

My incredible doula and her family:

Some of my most cherished clients, the Hill family:

The family who lives one of my dream lives (yes I have lots of dreams!), the Kramer's:

And the beautiful Williams family, always making my job SO easy:

Get excited to see more of these awesome people!

Okay I've got another busy day ahead...! It involves lots of snuggles with Sunday, finally getting my camera back from it's weekend getaway, and a commercial shoot in a few hours. Have a good one, friends!

The Prince Family | Lynchburg Family Photographer

Back in 2009, I went on a life-changing trip to Nepal. It was life-changing in a lot of ways, but meeting Jennifer was one of them. We were two of the five ladies on the trip and we had no choice but to get to know one another between the close quarters we shared and the long hours spent in the car! About a year after we returned from Nepal, Jennifer launched Hill City Bride and has continually created opportunities for wedding vendors in the Lynchburg area. She has coordinated many style shoots, launched a beautiful bridal guide and a women's magazine, is continually putting on events for the vendors in the area, and always brainstorming another new project! Because of her I have met so many other wonderful people in the industry, made numerous friendships that have blessed my life in great ways, and had a handful of opportunities presented to me through my business that otherwise would have never come about.

Jennifer is the heart behind Onetober (which I will totally be participating in next year!), 30 Days of Thank You, and the I Dream of A Wedding project. She is changing lives and blessing people left and right. Yet somehow she manages to gracefully balance being a mom to three beautiful children (one of which is Sunday's sweet babysitter!) and a wife to Earl, who is a successful entrepreneur as well. So I hope you believe me when I say I adore this family and am super grateful to know them.

Here they are in all their gorgeousness! I mentioned to Jennifer ahead of time that the session would probably be super-fast because her children were old enough to smile-on-demand. And that's exactly what happened! The pictures below are a perfect example of a mini-session and the variety that can come from just about 20 minutes of time together!

2012 Fall Family Portrait Sessions | Virginia Family Portrait Photographer

It's that time of year again!

What time do you ask? Oh there are so many things we could discuss right now:

  1. Football season is coming (!!!)
  2. Back to School
  3. Apple picking
  4. Race season (running)
  5. Camping and s'mores

Ah yes. 'Tis the season for all things Fall. (Love!)

But TODAY I am talking about Fall Family Portraits!

Last year I might have cried over the fact that I couldn't get out and shoot portraits during the most beautiful time of the year. (I was pregnant so that totally justifies the tears.) Needless to say, I am READY to ROLL for this years sessions!

I am accepting a very limited number of portrait sessions during the fall and the slots below are the ONLY available slots I have for the rest of 2012. All sessions require a 50% deposit at the time of booking. If you are interested in booking a session, just send me a quick message and we will get rolling with the process!
