Mini Sessions - November 12!

Here are the details for this year's mini sessions! Because September and October are already pretty full with weddings, engagements and a few last-minute seniors, I'm not going to be able to take a lot of families this year. I don't want any new or repeat customers to get left out, so I'm doing a late season mini session at my studio. It's scheduled for November 12th and you are guaranteed your images and disc back by December 1st. That's less than a week after Thanksgiving! Everyone will still have plenty of time to get their holiday cards and gifts taken care of.

Again, I'm going to have these at my studio this year since it's so late in the season and I don't want to risk getting rained out. We will have an entire room to shoot in so I'm planning on doing two set ups. One will be holiday themed - think bright colors, lots of multicolored trees, white-washed wood background, garlands and lights hanging down. The second will be unholiday - probably a patterned background of some sort and a big funky piece of furniture. The room is very versatile with both natural light and studio lighting. It the weather permits, the second shoot may be outside in either our garden area or against our old brick building (if the garden area is completely bare and pathetic looking).

The session is $80 for:
- 30 minutes with the photographer
- A disc of 5 high-res images
- One 8x10 print and two 5x7 prints
- Laughs, memories, cookies, hot chocolate, a peak at the new digs

Time slots begin at 8:00am and are available every 30 minutes. Half of the booking fee is due to reserve your spot. Please email me through the contact form if you are interested in setting up your mini session!

Eliza - Omaha Newborn Photographer

This is baby Eliza. If it were possible to keep her a newborn forever, she could be a professional newborn model. She slept the entire session. Never have I had a baby stay alseep the entire time. But if I were her, and I were stuffed into a fluffy sleeping bag and then nestled into a basket full of blankets, I would probably be more than willing to stay there forever as well.

Melanie and Chris's Wedding - Omaha Wedding Photographer

Melanie and Chris had a wedding. It was unbelievable. It was held at the Ackerhurst Dairy Barn in Bennington. Take note of that name if you're looking for a beautiful venue for your wedding. And then after you do that, call me to photograph it. Every little detail of this day was so beautiful. Not only the decor and the location, but the relationships and friendships in the wedding party, the very personal ceremony, and the obvious love between Chris and Melanie. I was so lucky to have been chosen by these two to document their wedding.

Please, please, please check out this wedding! Some images below were shot by JennieD Photography. I don't want to call her a second shooter because it totally discounts her talent... So, she was my co-photographer-at-large. Maybe? I don't know anything about journalism but I think that title potentially applies. :)
