Autumn Mini Shoots!

Autumn in New England! The crisp leaves, the bite in the air, apple picking and then pumpkins... the turning of the year. It is time for back to school, and Autumn Mini Sessions! Westmoor Park is looking beautiful and so is your family! This year I will be offering my Westmoor Park Mini Sessions one weekend a month in each September, October and November so that you can get your images in time for holiday cards and presents! I have a new pricing all planned out to make this as fun and affordable as possible. Contact me now to scheduled your special Autumn session with me! (can be used for family, maternity, head shots or just the kids...)  Each month offers it's own look and feel, so I decided to offer 4 different mini shoot options,  love them all! 


 I first started working as a professional photographer in 1996 right after graduating from Massachusetts College Of Art.  Back then we shot only film!  Over the years, while I always worked as a photographer, I was also a nanny, a preschool teacher, an art teacher and an early intervention specialist working for the State Of Oregon birth to five program.  I have attended Mass Art, Clark University, The University of Oregon and Lesley College!  Fewf!  I do love going to school!  I currently work in both film and digital photography, my fine art is almost exclusively shot on film, and my client work is mostly shot with a digital camera.  I am the school photographer for Two Coyotes Wilderness School, you can see my work on their site at, I love to work with children and families out in the glory of nature!  Contact me to schedule your mini shoot.


The dates for the mini session this year will be September 23 (rain date September 24) October 14 (rain date October 15) and November 4 (rain date November 5).  The shoots will take place at Westmoor Park in West Hartford, open times will be 2-2:45, 3-3:45 and 4-4:45.  We meet in the upper parking lot and go from there!  We can play in the fields, walk back to the bridge if we are quick and have a great time while capturing love and connection between your family members!  I get at least one posed image of the whole family, and any other posed shots you might like, while also capturing the special little moments between, lots of candid moments between everyone!  Contact me to schedule your mini shoot.


Images are delivered via an online gallery for you to view and share with friends and family members.  You can choose to purchase prints or digital images once you see your gallery.  Digital image files come with a print release, you can use them to make cards, print images for gifts, they are yours to keep forever!  Prices for digital negatives are $75 for one image, $250 for 6 images, $400 for up to 19 images, or $500 for all of the images in your gallery.  Print prices are available to view in a sample gallery as requested.  Contact me to schedule your mini shoot.


The session fee for my mini shoots is $200 and includes time, talent, editing and delivery of your own special gallery of images.  You can share the image gallery with friends and family, and even post to Facebook directly from the gallery.  All images are hand edited by me in both Photoshop and Lightroom, I work on your images until we are all happy with the results.  I want you to love these images, I  know that you will be looking at them for years to come, they will be family treasures, so I work hard to give you exactly what you are looking for!   Contact me to schedule your mini shoot.



I really would love to work with you and know our time together will be fun and relaxed, no stressed out photo shoots!  My goal is to make this fun for the whole family!  These will fill quickly, contact me to book your spot! <3
