Everything I am I owe to my mother

A portrait celebration of you - The Mother. What you do is awe inspiring and incomparable to anything else. You wipe away the tears, make sure the teeth are brushed and that bellies are full. You listen to the stories about school days, hardships, loves, and of course dreams. You organize permission slips, appointments, and play dates. You make play time out of chores and always have a hug and kiss ready.  

This annual portrait event is a celebration of you and all that you do. But in reality, the photographs from this session are not for you. They are a celebration of you for your children. To show them your love, your joy, your warmth of heart. One day your children will be grown and look for pictures of you. I want them to have these photographs to treasure for all of time - of the mother who loved them so deeply. 

WHERE AND WHEN?

I will be hosting two events this year. The first will be in Charlotte on Saturday, April 18th & 19th. The second will be in Asheville on Saturday, May 2nd. 

HOW MUCH IS THE SESSION AND WHAT DO I GET?

The session fee is $499 and includes the following: a 15-minute portrait shoot with Jody, hair and/or make up done prior to your photo shoot by our professional stylists, 5 high resolution digital portraits delivered via digital download, and a gift bag worth over $100 featuring goodies from local vendors. Photographs - digital or otherwise - are purchased separately. Additional sigital and print packages will be available. 

WHEN WILL MY PROOFS BE READY?

Images will be presented, via an emailed invite to your own personal, password protected gallery, 7-10 days following your session.

WHAT DO I BRING AND WHAT DO WE WEAR?

Session should be as natural as possible. So you should wear something you feel comfortable in with the guidance that the simpler the better. Neutrals are best. Solids are preferred, but subtle prints and patterns are great too. Please avoid large logos or anything draws attention away from the sentiment and feeling of the photograph. For some visual ideas please visit our Pinterest Board dedicated to styling your session

What ages can my children be?

These sessions are for children of all ages. I have photographed new babies all the way up to adult children. Even expectant mothers can attend!

What if I need to cancel or what if it sells out before I get a spot?

Unfortunately refunds are not available. But you can transfer your spot to a friend or family member. Just email us to let us know in advance so we know who to expect and who to send the planning information to.

I'm not in the Charlotte or Asheville areas - will you offer these in other cities?

If you can get at least five mamas together to commit one of these type of mini session in your city, drop us a line and let us know! We love to travel!
