Life is Short, Take The Pictures | Knoxville Family Photographer | Knoxville Mini Sessions

Hi, friends! 

Can you believe how quickly the holiday season is approaching?! It’s hard to believe we only have a few short months before we say, “So long!” to this challenging year… which brings me to my Tuesday Tip today.

Take the time to capture moments, both special and ordinary, with your family.

Have you ever heard someone say, “Life is short, buy the dress”? It has always been one of my favorite statements when I am waffling between taking a risk and playing it safe, but boring. Today’s spin on that quote: “Life is short, take the pictures!”

The biggest silver lining of adopting social distancing practices as our “new normal” this year is that many of us began spending more quality time with those already living under our own roofs. We ate more meals at home together, we navigated new homeschooling practices and remote work setups together, we found safe ways to get outside and move and play together… the list goes on. Despite the many hardships of 2020, I believe this time with family is something worth celebrating. We lifted each other up when we needed it most, and now, it’s time to honor those beautiful efforts and intentions.

One of the best ways to capture the beauty of these family bonds is with a holiday portrait session, and I’m making them even more accessible to you this year! On November 14 and 15, I’m hosting 20-minute holiday styled sessions for just $150. My set features a fun red vintage truck named Clyde, accompanying decor that instantly gives you all the warm and fuzzy feelings, and sweet treats to really get everyone in the spirit of the holidays. Bring your crew (pets included!) and your favorite Christmas outfits, and I’ll take care of the rest.

These mini sessions include:

  • 25+ digital images
  • Professional editing
  • Online gallery access
  • Print rights to images
  • Sweet treats on set

These sessions are limited to a first inquiry, first booking.  And, the spots have started booking.  If you’re interested in capturing the love your family shares in beautiful images that you can enjoy for a lifetime, message me today for my current mini session availability. Let’s end 2020 on a happy and festive note together!

With Grit & Grace~
