We had such a fun time at The Pleasance in Newtown on Saturday! We did these family holiday portraits the easy way, no stress, no tears! The weather held out–in fact it was even HOT for Connecticut in October. All the families were so nice and so easy to work with. As the years go by, we learn all the tricks and are able to make it a fun day for everyone. I really look forward to this time of year, seeing my clients again, seeing how all of their kids I knew as babies are growing up into beautiful young children. I wish the photo mini-sessions could be longer than 30 minutes, but we ae able to get fabulous, timesless photos done in that time. And I hope some that will be used in their holiday greetings and photo cards!
We still have some openings for Sunday, October 21st (at The Pleasance again) and will be taking reservations for the remaining sessions right up until start time. The Pleasance is one of the most scenic and kid-friendly locations to have your family photographs done in Fairfield County. Right in the middle of Newtown (behind the Police station) it’s a wonderful garden with a fun area just for kids.
After your 30-minute session, you’ll get an online gallery on my website, and within a week or two you’ll receive 10 high- and low-resolution digital images with full photo print release. The high-resolution digital files can be printed anywhere or uploaded to any website out there to get you some fabulous holiday cards. (I’ll even include a list of my favorite card websites.) The low-resolution images can be posted to any social media site, or just carried around on your smart phone or tablet so you can show off your gorgeous family to everyone.
This event has been very popular for the past couple of years, and spaces fill up quickly, so please reserve early to ensure that you can get the time that fits your schedule. And, if you want to have more than 10 digital images, you can always schedule a full family photo session. That would give us up to 2 hours to get some beautiful, timeless portraits of everyone in the family. And, it can be at any location you’d like—your backyard, the beach (I love Silver Sands in Milford)… anywhere your family is comfortable. But, you have to get on the schedule soon, as my weekends are filling up!
