Fall Mini Sessions ONE day only!!

What is a mini session anyway?! 

A shorter session for families that are so super busy! Wait, that's every family I know. (: Yup. These sessions will get you that special family portrait that you want for your holiday card or gift, or just because you really need an updated portrait of your child. They are only 25 minutes and we really focus on having a great time together! I guide you easily through the process, giving you ideas on what to wear, telling you what to expect and how to prepare, and giving you the information you need to help you plan what you will purchase. My goal is to make the whole experience easy and enjoyable for everyone.

So you meant to get professional portraits taken this summer and you missed out because you were traveling and soaking in the sun. Now is your chance to book a Saturday mini session with a the beautiful foliage backdrop that Maine offers! 

Don't take my word for it, here is what one client had to say "The pictures she captured brought tears to my eyes, I couldn't be happier to have these images forever. Jen is so easy to work with and her work is beautiful. We can't thank you enough, Jen!" - Katie

What others have said about working with me...

From Laura C (who's dancing in the portrait above!)-

Jen turned me into "queen for a day" at our glamour session. What an incredible experience! As a working mom, I rarely get dressed up, and almost never get photo evidence when I do. Jen made the session so much fun - the hair, makeup, the gourmet goodies...and the amazing pictures she took - wow! I am incredibly happy with the photos and have ordered a gorgeous album to pass along to my daughter. My husband also joined us at the end of the session for a few "couples" photos. He was so impressed with Jen as well. We couldn't be happier with the experience and the wonderful photos she captured. Thank you, Jen!

Malina O  (boudoir session) says-

I decided to get my pictures done for my husband for our second year anniversary. 

Doesn't everyone look like their perfect selves in every picture that's ever been taken of them? I mean, none of us have experienced an awful, cringe-worthy picture, right? Oh, wait, silly me; nearly all the pictures I have of myself only my mother could appreciate. Except these. They are me. Me. She left me looking like me, imperfections and beauty all wrapped up in one. They were perfectly 'touched' and 'untouched'. It was important to me to give my husband me, my face, my he sees it, not how I wish it looked. She did this beautifully. I feel beautiful looking at the final pictures. Jen's creativity, time and vision allowed me to have a day I will remember for years to come, give my husband a gift he was excited to receive and embrace my body as strong, beautiful and sexy. Her prices are fair, earned and WORKED for. She is invested in getting you the picture you envision. She takes your time and wishes seriously. 

I will go back to her for sure! I may even make this an every five year gift to myself!! - Malina O.

I can't wait to create some beautiful memories and portraits with you.

Love who you are. Right now. - Jen

Broadturn Farm, Scarborough Maine, Family Portrait Session

In the fall Maine is exceptionally beautiful. I wanted to make sure that I offered family portraits at a location that would capture the foliage and be fun too! I did a lot of research and came up with a list of great locations. I plan on using some of them in the future for sure. This year I picked

Broadturn Farm

. They have weddings there in the fabulous old barn, they offer CSA's, and organic produce and amazing flowers as well. You should make it a plan to stop in there if you haven't already. It's a really great place with a lot to offer. There are some trails to walk in the woods which is always fun too!

It also turned out to be the perfect spot for roaming around and taking family portraits. Here are a few of my favorites from the session I did with the Kierstead Family. This little Callie peanut was SO cute!! She is turning one soon and she is the perfect age for capturing those sweet little chubby cheeks that leave so quickly as they get older. 

I have some other family sessions I will be posting soon as well. 

I usually offer these sessions in the spring and the fall. I may be adding some studio mini sessions for families as well soon. In the meantime keep an eye out for the newsletter, blog, and Facebook posts I use to announce these upcoming sessions. They are just 20 minutes long so they are quick for the family and lots of fun!!
