Summer Family Photo Bonanza 2012

10.10.2012
A few months ago I had a brainstorm session with myself (ha), and decided to see if anyone would be interested in doing a day of mini-sessions. Basically I would just shoot ten 30 minute sessions in one day, and  since the sessions were alot shorter than my normal photo shoots then I was able to offer them at a discounted price! I also had four "settings" in one location which gave me a variety of backdrops to work with each family. I had an old white barn, a vintage bike, a picket fence with a cute bunting banner, and  for the macho men I had my bro-in-law's amazing  vintage Chevy Nova. I had all the details in my head, but wasn't sure what to call this "event". I didn't think "Day of Mini-Sessions" sounded too catchy ... So, I called up my super smart, marketing guru dad and he came up with the name "Summer Family Photo Bonanza". To my utter surprise when I posted an ad on Facebook for the Bonanza I got a ton of response! I sold out in a little over a week and half! (WHOO!) So, with a response like that I started getting together my prop ideas, etc. 

August 18th (the day of the Bonanza) turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. I had such a great time getting to know some new clients, plus seeing some old friends! When I got home the night after shooting the Bonanza I literally fell into bed! It was an awesome day, and I can't wait to do it again next year! (Yes, I think I might actually attempt it again!)... I had the most amazing clients. Here are a few photos to show you how the day went...

Thank you to all my amazing clients! Let's do it again soon!
