Making Spirits Bright


This year I have a little different twist on the traditional holiday mini photo session. This holiday season is all about giving back. I am hosting 2 days of mini sessions to benefit the Monarch School here in San Diego, that serves homeless students grades K-12. When you schedule a holiday photo session with me, your ENTRIE $99 session fee will be donated to the Monarch School. 


And, to say "thank you!" I have a little something for you too. A FREE keepsake photo holiday ornament. It's about 4x4 and comes in red, black or white. About 10 years ago, my family started the tradition of the photo ornament on our Christmas tree. I love seeing how our family has changed over the years and how many of our ornaments now are photo ones. But the best part is my kids. Even though they are 16 and 19 now,  they still get excited to take those photo ornaments out of the bin and look through them. They laugh about what they used to wear or about how my hair is never the same year to year. They reminisce about pets that are no longer with us and marvel at how young Floyd, our 10 year old Boston terrier used to look. This year I'm looking forward to adding the new photo. The one that will show how my kids have grown up. This year's ornament will also show the addition of our Pug puppy, Lola. I even send my oldest son's family a photo ornament each year so that he can have this same tradition with his family.

I hope you will join me either November 18th from 830a-4p in Mission Valley or on December 2nd from 12p-3p at Mint Studio for your family's holiday photos. I'll even have custom holiday cards for you. How cool is that? Photos, an ornament and holiday cards, all done in 30 minutes!
