Lifestyle Portrait Session. Mini Portrait Session.
Limited Sessions. What's best for your family??
Hello Blue Bow Friends! It's been a while! I don't blog much when I'm busy, but those of you who have been following Little Blue Bow Photography for a few years know that. I'd rather spend my "free" time planning new photography ideas or spending time with my kiddos who are growing way too quickly. Weren't they JUST born??! My baby is entering kindergarten this year. Sigh. I'm trying to spend every free moment making memories this summer because August 21st means I have two kids officially in elementary school. Say What?!? Time needs to slow down. Hit the pause button, someone please.
So, we are living our best lives this summer.... lots of swimming and a few staycations are in the books, so I want to get the ball rolling on filling my fall calendar because I'll be M.I.A for half of August.
Blogging may take a backseat to LIFE, but I ALWAYS make time to post an update of our fall calendar because it books up QUICKLY, especially weekend dates. So...Get your pen and paper, digital calendars, planners, chalkboards or however else you keep track of your family's schedules and let's get your portrait session booked so you're not scrambling in October (it happens every year and I have to turn people away which makes me sad.) Don't be the person that makes me sad this year, k? We have some NEW options this year, so take a peek and let's decide if a MINI session or FULL session is best for your family. The style of images you want to display in your home, or print on your holiday card might be more in line with a full hour session where we have lots of time to run, laugh and play with the kiddos, capturing those toothless giggly smiles or the tender moments of your baby snuggling on your chest. Full hour sessions also give more options for background in case you want a variety of scenes.
Beach Mini Sessions: Sunset in La Jolla
My beach minis are now longer than the rest of our mini sessions because kids LOVE the ocean. They are excited to be there, somewhat distracted because they are magnets to the water and want to splash or play in the sand. For that reason, I've extended the beach minis to have time for those fun, playful moments. These images below are from a sunset mini session last summer. The colors can be bright, bold and beautiful, or in the rare event of a late summer or fall overcast day, they are neutral and still very pretty but not as bold and vibrant. We'll always get that perfectly posed image (the one grandma loves to frame and place on her mantle,) we'll get individual and group shots of the kids and then we PLAY! If you want more fun, candid moments and more time for your kids to warm up to the camera, then an hour session is probably best for you.
Beach mini sessions are 25-30 minutes and include 10 client-chosen images with the option to add more to your digital package. Beach Minis are an investment of $295.
Our current availability for Beach Mini Sessions is at the bottom of the next beach section. Most will take place in La Jolla or Coronado, with one or two exceptions.
Beach Mini Sessions: Sunset in Coronado
These images are also from a 25 minute mini session.
Coronado has some great textures along with the beautiful ocean.

Beach Mini Sessions: Morning
Morning beach sessions are a growing favorite for my clients! If you have young children, morning sessions usually mean happy and well-rested kiddos. And one of the reasons my clients love morning sessions is that they can stay and enjoy an hour at the beach and still have their whole day free to spend with family or get their weekend errands accomplished. It's a win-win! :)
