2016 Holiday Mini Sessions with Slumberland Photography 

North Park Village Nature Center Chicago, IL

Sunday, November 20

Join me this fall for your very own mini session at North Park Village Nature Center in Chicago, Illinois. Spend some time reconnecting with the ones you love during a short and sweet 15 minute session.  I really enjoy playing with your kids, interacting with them and making them laugh. I want you to leave your session and not feel like you just had photos taken.  Photo sessions should be fun and stress-free and my hope is to provide you with that experience.  I look forward to working with you and your family!


 What does a mini session include?

  • Quick shoot: 15 minutes of family photos! (Please arrive on time/early because it is a very tight schedule!)
  • High Resolution photos: 10 photos included
  • Print Release: They will be yours to print anywhere, anytime, as much as you’d like!
  • Fast Turnaround: You’ll see your photos within 2 weeks (if not sooner).
  • Digital delivery: Your files will be delivered electronically through an online gallery only.  Get the photos faster! Photos will be edited and sent via PASS and you can order prints directly from there if you choose or “download all” easily and quickly.  Check out a sample gallery from last year’s mini sessions here.
  • Online ordering: When reviewing your session, you can add photos to your cart and have them shipped right to you. You can also forward the link to family and friends and they can order or download their favorites right then and there.
  • These sessions move quickly and only provide a few shots.  If you think you need more time and want to update your kiddos pictures or have a photo session with extended family members, please book more than one time frame or a full session instead.

 Investment – $150

A $75 non-refundable deposit is due to secure your spot. The remaining balance ($75) is due at the time of your mini session. Your session fee is payable via check, cash or PayPal.

Pink, pearls, and tutus were aplenty for little Miss Raina’s sweet first birthday at home. Her mama transformed their home into a party fit for a queen to celebrate her first year of life!

The pink and green party decorations, bows, flowers and delicious treats from Roeser’s Bakery and Bon Macaron combined to make a gorgeous first birthday celebration.  My most favorite part was seeing just how much Raina’s mom and dad love her which was most evident during a special slideshow her daddy created.  Friends and family gathered around to see snapshots of Raina’s first year of life.  So precious.

Thank you, Neeta and Rajan, for inviting me to celebrate your beautiful little girl.  Here’s to a wonderful year number two!

Ryan turned one earlier this year and his mama went all out to celebrate!  In fact, I was so blown away with the decorations when I walked in, I didn’t know where to start.  From animal balloons to vines to jungle print backdrops, his mommy thought of it all!

The jungle themed party decorations, rainforest soundtrack, and adorable animal parting gifts combined to make a roaring (pun intended!) first birthday celebration.  My most favorite part was when Bob Cordero of Mr. Bob’s Magic showed up and entertained the party guests with his magic.  His interactive show had both the kids and adults laughing and participating in Ryan’s special birthday magic show.

Thank you, Mili and Dave, for inviting me to celebrate your precious little guy.  Here’s to another amazing year with him!

Austin’s mommy put together the most adorable first birthday party for her little gentleman.  Dressed in suspenders, a bow tie, and dapper slick backed hair, he was all set to go for his mustache themed first birthday soiree.   Friends and family alike weren’t afraid to don a mustache or two throughout the day, but Austin wasn’t too sure of the fuzzy little things.

There was no detail left undone – the cake, custom birthday hat, adorable signs telling you to “stache some candy for later” – Austin’s mommy thought of it all!   The fun did not stop with the mustaches and decorations, though.  The guests were entertained with the Bears game (they lost by the way) and an amazingly talented caricature artist named Kenny Durkin of Durkin Works.

Thank you, Kristen and Erik for inviting me to capture your son’s special celebration.  Happy first year of life, Austin!
