Casual Friday Vol. 5: Mini Sessions, All the Books, and Rom-Communisim

Happy Friday, friends! I’ve had my first PSL of the year…worn my favorite sweatshirts (in the AC inside…) all week long…ordered the CUTEST fall waffle romper for Noah…autumn feels like it’s just around the corner!!

With that, it only makes sense to finally announce the 2021 Fall Mini Session dates! I love offering these each year and am always so happy to see repeat families (and new ones, too!)! Mini sessions are such a great option for all types of photography – families, couples, seniors, maternity, and more! As long as you’re available on the given date, not in need of a custom location, and ready to laugh and play with your kiddos, minis are for YOU!

The Details: $350 for 30 minutes and 50+ images

In the past, I’ve always advertised 25+ images…but I went back and looked at minis from the last two years, and the average number of photos was definitely closer to the 80s. Haha! It always amazes me how much we can get in such a short time – especially when kiddos are involved. They really are a great option!

And, we’ve gotten real fancy this year with a new online booking program! So thankful for my friend Emily and her recommendation — I think this will be such a win for securing your ideal session date and time. But enough of me talking…let’s book those minis HERE!

A few other things I’ve been loving this week…

  • This recipe from Pinch of Yum is one of my go-tos when bringing a meal to new parents! It’s so easy to throw in the crockpot, which is always a plus when cooking dinner for yourself and another family! I normally swap the refriend beans for a pound of ground beef…but have done it both ways!
  • Two words: Ted Lasso. Are you watching?! It’s the most refreshing + light comedy I’ve seen in a while…minus Roy Kent’s language, that is. Haha! So obsessed with the most recent episode especially….all the You’ve Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, and Love Actually vibes. Rom-Communism forever!
  • Antioch Music just released their newest full length album, Desertland, this morning, and I’m LOVING it!! The first song has been Ryan’s request every morning drive to school!
  • This book. This book. And this book. All three I’ve read in the last week; all three I’m equally obsessed with. P.S. If you don’t have a kindle connected to the Libby app…what are you even doing with your reading life?!
  • Speaking of reading, if you love books: follow me on Goodreads! 


And that’s about it! Happy Friday, friends!!
