The photo above is displayed on a 16x20 canvas on a wall in my friend's home. Knowing that every time her family looks at it they are transported back to that day on the beach, full of giggles and love, is part of the reason I do what I do. Her children will never be this old again. In fact, they are already a year older. But on the wall they are frozen in that happy moment, captured as they were that day. In an effort to encourage you all to get your families on the wall, beach minis will be a little different this year. There are 3 different options for your session, and each includes wall art. Instead of opening your gallery online for you to order, you'll come to my home so that I can show your photos in person. I'll have samples for you to see and help you decide what works best in your home. Here are the details:
Beach Minis, Session 1
At Rexhame Beach on Saturday, June 20th at 7:30am, 8am, 8:30am, 9am and 9:30am.

Beach minis are available for booking tonight at 8pm for past clients, and tomorrow night, May 12th at 8pm for future clients, pending any available appointments. There will be 1 or possibly 2 more beach mini sessions this summer in July or August. Regular summer appointments are also now officially open for booking. Spots are very limited this year in anticipation of the volume of newborn summer sessions I'll be shooting. If you're planning on booking a summer appointment now is the time to get it on the calendar.
And finally, I'm having another contest! In keeping with the "get your family on the wall" theme, I want you to send me a cell phone pic of your family on the wall from a session I took. Email the pic to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "On the wall". On May 25th I'll create an album on Facebook with all the photos and open the contest for voting. The photo that has the most combined likes, comments and shares on May 27th at 9pm wins a free mini session (products not included).
Hooray for summer!!
