I am planning some super adorable mini sessions for the kids, which will be held in my home studio with a Valentine’s theme background, as well as couples! Couples sessions will be held outdoors {still determining which location}! If you happen to be one of the few men out there reading this post, this would be a GREAT V-day gift for the lady in your life! Trust me, this will top them all! ;)

There are limited spaces available for both days, please email me ASAP to book! =)

The end of 2012 got pretty hectic for me and I ended up having to slack on my blog updates quite a bit! But I wanted to take the opportunity to post my tribute to my amazing 2012 DTP family and say THANK YOU for your continued support! This year has been amazing and I can not wait to see what 2013 holds!


* Please note….if you had multiple sessions with me this year, you will only find one photo! I had to save room for all the other sessions! lol.

Do you need that perfect family photo for your Holiday cards? Or are you a mom who takes a ton of pictures of your children and realizes you are not in ANY of your family’s pictures? These mini’s are for YOU. Do you have a hard time talking your husband into taking pictures? No fear, these are short sessions…so it will be much easier! ;) This is the perfect chance to get that outdoor fall family portrait you have been longing for! Please take a look at the flyer below, and email be to book your spot before they are all gone! I have a very limited amount of sessions available! A $50 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold your spot and sessions will be booked on a first come, first served basis. I have NEVER offered digital images with a family mini session before, so these are going to sell out FAST! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to capture your family during this beautiful fall season!
