Spring sessions

It is so green, green, green this year! We must have Spring Sessions! I want to play and be creative this year, my sessions will be longer and less rushed. We’ll focus on our posed family shots and then let loose for more candid play! You can also choose to have only your children in the session- while you sit drinking coffee on the side! Feel free to let your child bring his/her favorite dress up-costume, sword, streamer, truck, flower wreath, ball, kite, or bubble-maker! Also, please if your child has a bestie, why not do a spring session with their friends? Make it a birthday gift for them? Photo shoot of their tea party in the forest? So many possibilities to explore their friendship! And hellooooo, Mother’s day is in May- its a perfect opportunity to book a session for yourself, your mother or grandmother- it makes a perfect gift either the session itself or the photos from the session!

Contact me if you would like to have fresh flowers or a mini tee-pee.

I'll be offering 3 customized packages with the option of adding any of my a-la-carte digitals or print, frame, wall art or canvas choices. I'll be shooting at several locations around Ventura county, check the sign up sheet to see if your favorite spot is available! I have taken several photography courses since December including attending the ClickAway 2019 retreat in Laguna Beach and I want to use all this new knowledge to explore new lens, artistic styles, and different perspectives.

Please contact me with any questions and check out the SignUp Genius below! After you sign up, I will invoice your email based on your package choice and send you a session prep guide

. You can pay two ways- a $50 deposit to secure your spot and the reminder after you receive the gallery or you can pay the whole amount upfront. I can take credit card thru my invoice system or a deposit/full payment thru Venmo @Meghan-Schade
