Garden/Studio Mini Session Date Added, with New Options!

If you’ve been following my work for a bit, you may have heard me mention that mini sessions are something I have often struggled with in the past. I love being able to offer them though when I can! I sat down and reviewed my upcoming fall schedule in depth and started to get a little worried about how I’m going to fit everything in with my son’s school schedule shifting to pre-k hours, which means a lot more driving for drop off/pick up for me. I came up with a schedule and a plan that should work well for us each week, but doesn’t leave a ton of time for non-newborn sessions, like baby milestone sessions and breastfeeding sessions, etc. I started thinking how it might be a good idea to try out a mini session day one day a month, with a variety of options available.

So, I am trying out something new for August! This will be similar to the garden minis I offered previously, but with additional options. For the toddler/preschool aged kids (up to age 5), there will be the carousel horse and antique horse tricycle options available, as shown below.

I will also have one prop available for sitting babies…I am considering using the antique crib shown below but may have another option available. :) alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1355

I am also including an option with these minis for maternity and breastfeeding photos! There will be both standing and sitting options available (standing option shown below, although those roses are not currently blooming as much as they were previously in the Spring).

Also, since August is National Breastfeeding Month, 25% of each breastfeeding mini session will be donated to BreastfeedLA!alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1353
I will also have my new amazing vintage chair set up in the garden, and you can see a sneak peek of that chair in use with my boys and me below (this is just an Instagram cell phone sneak peek photo since those ones aren’t edited yet). The photo below was taken in my garden greenhouse, but the mini sessions will take place in the vineyard area of our garden, as shown above in the horse mini photos and the maternity photo (the crib photo was taken in the rose garden area, which will not be included for mini sessions).
