In March, my goal for the Summer was to offer a variety of mini sessions to help pay off the IVF debt -- However, our roller coaster infertility journey has given us other plans again, as it has since August of last year.  Yesterday, we faced another setback which will mean surgery #3 for me this fall. With that comes more debt and more changes, so I am hoping to fill these mini's and get more booked soon so we can get $6k for our next surgery! If you are interested in capturing memories for your family and helping reach our goal, all info is below: 

 I had already booked out the props with the Greenhouse Picker Sisters -- so save the date for July 18th! 

With using Lake Crabtree as the backdrop, we have so many different textures to work with: sand, water and tree line backdrop, boardwalk planks, fields, and some of the overlook decks!

Nautical Mini Session | $63 

  • 20 minute session
  • print release
  • 14 edited images (7 in color, 7 in black and white)
  • edited images mailed on a disc 7 days following the session date
  • Facebook Timeline Preview (within 48 hours of the session, I will upload a FB timeline with a few of the image for you so you can see your images)

 If you aren't sure what a mini session is: 

 Mini sessions are days when I shoot clients back-to-back at one beautiful location. There are beautiful props from the Picker Sisters, natural props at the location, and I capture a variety of poses in a small time frame so you have some updated {Summer~ Family Photographs}! Mini Sessions are for up to 5 people, each additional person is $10, up to a max of 7 as we have time limitations before the next client arrives! 

  • For example, a shoot with a family of 4:  one individual portrait of each child, one sibling pose, one spouse pose, and then three family poses = 7 images! 

 Due to the nature of the fast paced sessions, your non-refundable retainer in full is required to reserve your families allotted time. You can pay via paypal to reserve your retainer immediately!! When you are ready to book -- email me at or message me on FB!

Upon completion of my last sessions, MKP is now closed until July 12th, 2015.

After that, MKP will have a limited amount of sessions each month leading into October due to our IVF timeline.
