I was thrilled to start getting some babies on the books after the craziness of the holidays.  This precious little pumpkin was my first “official” session of the new year.  We got both sleepy and awake shots.  She was a perfect little model!

I HAVE to get myself together and post more of these amazing little babies I’ve had the privilege of photographing.  Seriously, every one of them is so special and I’m just amazed that I get to do this week after week.  Life is hectic and I’m trying to get used to working with my husband out of the house (he had been working from home for 3 years until September).  These routines are a little harder for me to manage and my blog is taking the brunt of my inattentiveness.

I know these sweet girls’ mama has been waiting to see photos of her girls since we took them.  I have oodles more, but for now, here’s a few from our time together.

Can you believe that fall is here already?  I welcome fall with open arms, the heat of the summer makes me grumpy, there is something to be said for a crisp cool evening where you have to put on a nice sweatshirt and gather around a fire.  Along with fall comes a busy time of year for my family and I.  There are 7 birthdays in Sept/Oct (including my youngest Lily’s 4th birthday and my oldest Sophia’s 10th birthday), an important 40th wedding anniversary for my parents and all of the fun Halloween brings before gearing up for more serious holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Since it is such a busy time of year and I am making it a point to be present for my daughters and family, I decided that mini sessions were the way to go!
I’ve scheduled mini sessions for November 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the afternoon/evening.  The location is to be determined at this point.  I will be sure to keep everyone informed as the date gets closer.  I’m trying to keep things fresh and think of some fun new locations.

The details are below, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email or call me.  These are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis.  So don’t wait!

When: Friday November 2nd, Saturday November 3rd and Sunday November 4th

Where: To Be Announced Later

4:00           11:00      11:30           3:30

4:30                                                 4:00

5:00

 

Price: There are two options to choose from

Digital Mini Session – $200

You will receive a 20 minute session (with your immediate family or kids only), an online gallery with 7-10 images to choose from, and a CD with 5 images of your choosing along with a print release.  Additional prints/products including Christmas cards may be purchased separately.

Traditional Mini Session – $200

You will receive a 20 minute session (with your immediate family or kids only), an online gallery with 7-10 images to choose from, and a $150 print credit towards prints/products including Christmas cards.

What you need to do: Send me an email at melissa@bluebugphotography.com and let me know your first and second choices for time slots.  I will try to keep the scheduled updated, I will send you an invoice to confirm your session time.  Mini sessions will be booked on a first come, first serve basis.  Once your session has been confirmed, I will send you more specific details for the day of the session.

What to expect: The day of your session, please arrive early and have your family ready to go at your selected time.  Sessions will last approximately 20 minutes, scheduled every 30 minutes.

The mini session fee is non-refundable in the event a cancellation/no show.  You may find someone to fill your spot, in which case I will issue you a refund after the session date.

Another adorable baby boy with a super fantastic name!  Baby Nolan dished out more than a few smiles during his photo session.  I had oodles of fun with him.  His mommy came with some fun accessories I couldn’t wait to try out.
