Seriously, are these people not just gorgeous?!!? Britnie made my day when she came in for her consultation talking about how she knew she’d wanted me to photographer her wedding since she was in high school. I’m honored to be joining in their wedding day later this year and had an amazing time creating their family/engagement images this fall.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this images of them walking together down the road so much it might just have to be a sample in the new studio.
With a blizzard (or so they say) on the way I thought we could all use a bit of warm fall sunshine in our week… but if a chilly snowy session is more your cup of tea you can hop in on this Saturday’s Limited Edition sessions for just $45! Call 217.330.7012, text 573.690.7427 or email email@example.com today to request a snow session this Saturday (1/12).
Happy New Year ya’ll! It’s the first SJP blog post of 2020… new year, new decade! Does it feel like a fresh start for you? Does it feel like just another day? I’m a big fan of the ‘blank page’ feeling of the new year. And after busy busy busy season here with fall-Christmas sessions with all you beautiful people I enjoy the solo time in the office to catch my breath and work on the back end of things as well.
I’m excited today to kick things off sharing one of our beautiful class of 2020 models, Alleson’s, family with you! They joined us for our ‘fall’ Limited Edition session this year (you know in the fall that never came, thanks 2019… hence all the beautiful greenery). I will seriously never forget this season when October started at 94* and looked/felt nothing like fall and then we got our first snow before Thanksgiving! #crazy
We’ve had so many of you request early booking this year that I’ve just set our 2020 Limited Edition dates and booking is open now HERE. Our LE sessions are 15 or 30 minutes starting at just $45 and are available 4x a year:

And coming soon we’ll have a bonus Christmas weekend with both Santa Experience sessions (we have a very special experience planned with Santa this year that’s far more than just a photo session!) as well as themed indoor and outdoor Christmas sets.
Check out the Garvin family! I got to meet this beautiful family at our Fall Limited Edition session. One of my favorite things about our LE sessions is that they are a great way to ‘try on’ the SJP portrait experience. With no pre-session consultation and your choice of short 15 or 30 minute sessions they are a convenient option for clients with busy schedules and/or dads and kids who don’t LOVE being in front of the camera for an hour (haha any husbands out there that do?!?!).
And post-session you still get the full red-carpet treatment with your exclusive in-studio Premiere where you become the movie stars on our 106″ movie screen and we work with you to select images and create the perfect artwork for your home as well as to share with friends/family.
I have my set of annual clients who I get to see each year at these events and watching their kiddos grow over the years is seriously so rewarding but it’s so fun to meet the new faces like the Garvin’s and I swear you wouldn’t know this littlest guy didn’t know me before session. He warmed right up and was seriously working it for the camera. Even in 15 minutes I think it’s so important to let each of the kids shine with their own time in the spotlight. They are each such an important part of your family and we want to show off who they are right now so you don’t miss a moment (you’ll be shocked how much they change in just a year ahhhhh).
It’s beautiful family portrait day here on the blog. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE to watch your families grow. I first worked with these guys for Jaycee’s senior portraits and now she’s all grown up with the most adorable little baby of her own that look just like her! Having everyone together for big family sessions like this means we also get to take some time to create images of all the relationships within the family too. Everyone get’s their own little bit of time in the spotlight as well as showcasing the whole gang.
Your adorable meeter is about to explode… look at that little wave she gave me! #heartmelted!
And how sweet are these two?!?! <3
And oooo how I love siblings portraits. I’m an only child so I didn’t have any of this growing up but I swear there seems to be no cooler relationship than that between siblings. They may be the first in line to tease you, steal the last piece of pizza from you or annoy you but they’ll also be the first in line to stand up for you and have your back.
I’m excited to share with you our latest session with the Brackett family. I’ve had the pleasure to work with Michelle and her lovely family a few times over the years and it’s always so much fun. We had beautiful fall colors at Fairview for our fall Limited Edition sessions and everyone looked adorable!
Of course, when we have the whole family together and all dressed up we make sure to get individual portraits of everyone! It only takes a few minutes and gives everyone their moment in the spotlight.
Be sure to check out their last session here on our facebook page to see how much these kiddos have grown! Looking for your own updated family session? Or just the kids? Our Limited Edition session dates are set for 2018 and give you the choice of 15 or 30 minutes (perfect for little ones, and even dads, who don’t want to take an hour out of their play/work day for portraits). Plus, our LE sessions include 50% off our Limited Edition product line. You can book yours HERE now.
