I update it periodically manually.

2021 Outdoor Halloween Mini-Sessions

Watch for date announcement - give your input between Sat, Oct 23rd and Sat, Oct 30th on our Facebook page

For Halloween Session, we offer collectible business-card-sized flat magnets to help decorate for Halloween year after year. We also offer cute collectible 4" square acrylic blocks to decorate your tabletops and hearths during the Halloween season. Choose the package and the timeslot together.

If you have multiple children, or want extra time, add a consecutive timeslot to your cart and check out together. For Halloween, you must choose extra time if you have more than one child, but if you have more than 2 children, you only need to add the extra time once, unless you want more time. We try to do both individuals and group costume photos in the allotted time, depending on how cooperative the children are and the preferences of the parents. If you want additional magnets or acrylic blocks for siblings, you can call me to add them ahead of time, or add them on the day of the shoot.


**If Paypal is not letting you checkout, the timeslot may be taken. Unfortunately, it doesn't auto-update the dropdown list, but it won't let you check-out with a timeslot that is already taken. I update it periodically manually. Please call me if you are having trouble and I can look at the schedule and see where we can fit you it and update the dropdown list. 505-933-5585
 
* Tickets are non-refundable, but are transferable to another family. Since this event is in a newborn studio and brand new babies can get very ill from every day colds, we treat this event like the rules for a cruise ship and follow the Center for Disease Control's recommendations. Please note that if anyone in your household has a fever of 100 or more, has thrown up, or has had diarrhea in the two days prior to the event, they will not be allowed to participate. Please keep your kids away from contagion the week before the event. If you are not able to come from sickness or any other emergency or situation, you are always allowed to give or sell your tickets to a friend.

Christmas Mini-Sessions Schedule for 2021

Nov 10th-22nd Outdoor Mini-Sessions on Christmas Tree Set


Unfortunately with Santa being a senior citizen (and in the high-risk category for COVID), he will be taking a break again this year, hopefully resuming 2022.  We will be doing our holiday mini-sessions on an evergreen set in the back of the studio.  All sessions this year are extended 15-minute sessions with a 5 min transition between families (with a limit of 4 families per day). We have time for each person in the family to bring and hang their favorite ornament and for the family to bring and read their favorite holiday book on set as well as some family portraits in front of the tree. 

15-minute Tickets Start at $139 with all good images included. 

Digital packages are available online to sign up below or call 505-933-5585 to book.





For 2021, we will offer two types of sessions:
(1) 15-minute mini-session with Low-Res (Facebook sharing quality) images
(2) 15-minute session with Print-Res images (print up to 8x10).
(3) Just like last year you may add:
* Acrylic blocks, 
* Metal ornaments, and
* Holiday cards 
We will not be taking orders during the session, so all add-ons must be added ahead of time.

Images will be delivered via Dropbox for digital download.

Introducing the NEW Superhero Super-Session
Watch for dates for 2022



Bring your own favorite superhero costume, or choose from several capes and masks we have here in our studio collection!!!

We have an awesome cityscape background, with lots of WIND to fill the sails of your super-crime fighting powered cape!  This was such a fun mini-session back in 2019! We hope to bring it back in 2022.









METAL PRINTS
With this high contrast mini-session, we'll be printing images on aluminum in a 4x6 tabletop format with a stand. Choose just the print for $59 or add digital images to share! If you add sibling time, you automatically will get a second metal print since we are shooting these individually for each child.

SIBLINGS
With the contrast lighting and tabletop print format, images will be of individual children, so for siblings, add a consecutive timeslot for each additional sibling - your package will come with extra time and an additional table top metal print. You only need to add digital images once for your entire family. If Paypal is not letting you checkout, the timeslot may be taken. Unfortunately, it doesn't auto-update the dropdown list, but it won't let you check-out with a timeslot that is already taken. I update it periodically manually. Please call me if you are having trouble and I can look at the schedule and see where we can fit you it and update the dropdown list.

WHY DO WE ASK FOR YOUR CHILD'S WEIGHT?
We have a mini-tramp that has a weight limit. If your child is over the limit, we will remove it before you come in, so that they don't feel like they are missing out.


Mini-Session FAQ

I've gotten a few questions and many depend on the current health mandates. I will update this link in November:
Here is the Aug 17th, 2021 health mandate with updates:
https://cv.nmhealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/081721-PHO-Masks.pdf
Do We have to wear masks?
Yes, All children over the age of two must arrive and check-in wearing a multi-layered, non-vented mask until your call time. Please use hand sanitizer upon arrival, sign in, and stay masked in the on-deck waiting area until you are called down for the shoot. At that point, participants actively in the session will take masks off, and put them back on when not actively in a photo, even for outdoor mini-sessions. 
How many people can be in the sessions? Can Grandparents come? To prevent any unnecessary exposures, we will only photograph members of the same household together for mini-sessions, even in open outdoor settings.  Up to 5 people may participate in full outdoor sessions (Grandparents allowed for full sessions where we have more space to move around). 
Can I bring my dog? If you want to book a separate outdoor family session at a location that allows dogs, then absolutely! But for mini-sessions, only your humanoid children will be allowed to participate. 
What happens if one of my kids gets sick? We recommend limiting all exposure points in the 2 weeks prior to your session to make sure no one gets sick, but your household will not be allowed to participate if anyone else in the household has symptoms of sickness within 2 days of your session, or potentially exposed to a positive case of COVID within 2 weeks of your session.  Please refer to Terms below. 

TERMS: Due to COVID, we have strict restrictions for participation, following the Center for Disease Control's and WHO's recommendations. Please note that if anyone in your household has a fever of 100 or more, croup, cough, sore throat, nasal discharge, had any COVID symptoms defined by the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/clinical-guidance-management-patients.html), has thrown up, or has had diarrhea in the two days prior to the event, or been in contact with anyone testing positive for covid or had a positive case at their school, child care, work, gym, or home within 2 weeks prior to your session, your entire household will not be allowed to participate. Please keep your kids away from contagion in the weeks before the event. Masks and social distancing are required for all persons 2+ as local health mandates require. The maximum number of participants is dictated by local health mandates for allowed gathering sizes and/or household restrictions (currently 5 from immediate household only at the time of this writing, but subject to change). If you are not able to participate due to sickness or any other emergency or situation, you are always allowed to give or sell for the same price your tickets to a friend and let me know who will be taking your place. 

Please note that we are shooting outdoors on uneven ground such as gravel, river rocks, and a steep hill. You certify that you are over 18 years of age entering into this agreement.
