Brothers Fall Mini Session – Des Plaines, IL

Brothers Fall Mini Session – Des Plaines, IL

The first time I met these brothers they were with about 6 of their cousins as we juggles getting all them to sit for a cousins portrait for grandma. It was wonderful to have them back and spend some time with these two, all handsome and growing up. They were full of silliness and giggles for 20 minutes while we captured some great fall photos for Mom. And Mom did a great job on these adorable outfits.

Reasons to sign up for a Mini Session

Reasons to sign up for a Mini Session

Here are just a few:

  1. Mini Sessions are short and sweet. You get a few images of your family and your kids while being outside and enjoying the moment. The sessions go by so quick that your kids don’t start asking if they are done yet. They have fun playing outside and don’t see it as a chore.
  2. If you think family photos are a daunting, exhausting and just cannot bring yourself to do them, Mini Sessions are the answer! Any client who has signed up for one because a full session was too much to even think about doing, has been super relieved to find that it is not exhausting. In fact, I always hear ‘I wish we did this sooner.’ Its a quick simple photo, don’t sweat the clothing details, take some simple clothing you already own and try out a photo session. Its a great way to sample a photo session.
  3. Mini Sessions are a great deal. You get the best of the best. We spend the 20 minutes creating 10 gorgeous images and because there are other families involved in my time through out the day, you get a discount on the time but NOT on the quality.
  4. If you avoid all Mini Sessions or photo sessions all together, I beg you to stop now and try out a mini session. There are tons of articles on why family photos should be taken and displayed in your home supporting that it boosts self esteem in children of all ages to have photos of themselves and their family around their home. Professional images and art work also provide long lasting imagery for decades to come.
  5. Gifts! They make excellent gifts! Grandparents and relatives can be difficult to buy for, but they love family photos. Frame them, give them an ornament or a photo cube, we also have adorable mini accordion books that are a grandparent favorite. Mini Sessions make gift giving easy, meaningful and will last more then just the holiday season but for generations to come. You could be done with most of your shopping BEFORE thanksgiving!
  6. Pets are family too! Mini sessions easily accommodate the furry members of your family because they are outdoors at pet friendly locations. Make sure to let it be know you are bringing a pet so we give you the best time slot and location for you family.
  7. You won’t regret this investment. You won’t. You can’t. This is the best gift you can give yourself, your kids and your family. It is an investment that will last you longer then this year and it will bring you joy for years to come. It will being your kids joy for years to come.

Call or email today to get your spot this weekend. If you missed this weekend, email kelly@kellyfitzgeraldstudio.com and request to be added to the mailing list to make sure you do not miss future sessions. Green Chair and Snow Sessions to come!

Busse Woods Family Portraits – Schaumburg

Busse Woods Family Portraits – Schaumburg

What do I love best about this family portrait session??

The cat ears, of course!

Not only do I love this little girls style but I love that Mom and Dad let her show it off in their annual family photo. The middle image below currently hangs in a black matted gallery frame in the families dinning room. With all of the reading I have done lately on how displayed portraits of children helps to boost their self esteem, I am fairly certain that image hanging in their home will do just that for both her and her brother.

These kids were a lot of fun! I am glad they joined us at the forest preserve for my Fall Mini Sessions.
