2018 Fall Mini Sessions in Houston

I don’t know about you but I’m living that PSL (pumpkin spiced latte) life! I’m about to pack up our Kinsey girl and take her to the pumpkin wonderland that is Trader Joe’s in the fall. Best believe I’ll be throwing anything and everything pumpkin spiced in our cart!

Since fall is upon us, it’s time to announce our fall mini sessions in Houston this year! It’s the perfect way to remember this busy season that always just fly by us! Slow down for 20 minutes with the ones you love most so you can give grandma that updated photo of your babies she’s been begging you for!

Our Mission Behind the Minis

Last year, we were so honored to be able to help our Cotton families affected by Hurricane Harvey. It meant the world to us to get to love on them and be there for them during such an incredibly difficult time. So, if you participated, thank YOU!

This year, 15% of the session fee will go to the Michael J. Foxx Foundation to help with Parkinson’s research. I’ll be sharing why this cause is so close to my heart next month. 💕

2018 Fall Mini Sessions in Houston | The Details

Fall Mini Sessions include all edited high-resolution images to a personal online gallery. Each session will be twenty minutes of snuggles, giggling and hand-holding with your loved ones! As a thank you for being a part of this year’s minis, we’re also offering 10% off of any prints or albums.

Cost: $350 + sales tax | All booking is done online. We will send over a questionnaire, contract & invoice. Once we have everything signed and paid, that reserves your spot!

When: Saturday Oct. 13th & Sunday Oct. 14th

Time: 20 minutes | We will assign you a 20-minute time slot between 4:00 and 6:00 pm on your preferred date.

Where: West 11th Street Park | Right in the heart of Houston! Just west of the Heights and inside 610.

Add-ons: Custom calligraphed faux pumpkins from Jenny with A Fine Flourish!  $25 for one or $40 for two pumpkins. You can customize faux pumpkins with anything you want! Perfect for your last name that you can keep for years or even fall birthdays or a baby announcement!

We can’t wait! And in the meantime, here are a few of our faves from last year!

Hope to see you there!
