We had such a wonderful, wonderful time with these mini sessions! I have lost count of how many families actually came through, but I was so happy to see each and every one of these sweet faces. Some we met for the first time, and others have been in front of my camera several times before.
Last Spring I started planning for these, and kept coming back to the idea of having some kind of snow for the sessions. However, here in Tennessee, you get lucky if you see snow in December— snow in the middle of October is unheard of. I could always add some fake snowflakes in photoshop, but I wanted it to be something the families could really interact with. Imagine trying to tell a 3 year old to look up and try to catch the snow, when nothing is falling from the sky. :) So I researched a lot of different options, and finally found a machine that would produce some “snow” for us! It was exactly what I wanted, and it brought out so much joy and lots of smiling faces, from the young to the young at heart.
This year’s mini sessions were not without some obstacles— from the little rain showers that came out of nowhere, to the electricity going out in half the city for about an hour, which meant we couldn’t run the snow machine… There were definitely some things that didn’t go quite as planned. But I have to say a huge thank you to my clients, who were all incredibly understanding and rolled with the punches with us! :)
Thanks so much to everyone who came out, we had such a great time seeing you all! And special thanks to Beth Ann, who helped with running the magical snow machine and was such a wonderful helper with any little ones who were not sure about this whole picture-taking thing.
For anyone wondering, the snow machine came from a company called Snowonder, and here is their website: https://www.snowonder.com
