Whenever I hear about a child battling cancer, it always makes me sad, it's just not something a child should ever have to face and it makes me ask the unanswerable question, "Why?" This summer my friend's 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a cancer of the bones and soft tissues. Hearing that word, cancer, in relation to your child is simply unimaginable. Since her diagnosis, Lauren has been undergoing chemotherapy to shrink her tumor so that it can be safely removed This means frequent hospital stays and time away from home as Lauren and her Mom will soon be heading out of state for 6-8 weeks so Lauren can get specialized radiation therapy. I was invited to the Larson home in Prior Lake to capture Lauren giving her Mom, Jess, a haircut. Cancer Moms are pretty special people too! You can see more here.
We were so very blessed by the outpuring of support we received this September when Braydon had his accident. There is no way I can ever repay or say thank you enough to all who brought us dinner, gift cards and donated, even complete strangers! But I can do something to help Lauren and her family and so that is why I have put together Christmas Minis for Lauren on November 10th and 11th.
What's a Mini? A mini session of course! Typcial portrait sessions are an hour or two long. Your mini session will be 20 minutes long. That should be just enough time for a group shot and then a few break downs: siblings, each child alone and Mom and Dad alone (or however your family looks, but you get the idea). These very special sessions are $125.00 with $50 going to the Lauren Larson Yellow Brick Road Fund.
Now, for the nitty gritty. Included in your mini session are 50 double-sided, 5x7 cards with envelopes and a 50% discount on gift prints, anything sized 8x10 and smaller, regular price $40. Additional cards are available for $1.60 each. Samples will be available on site and your design will be chosen on the day of your session. Within one week of your session, up to 10 images will be placed in your private on-line gallery. From there, you can choose the required number of images for your card. Galleries will expire on December 1, and an additonal fee will be required to re-publish. Orders placed after December 1, cannot be guaranteed a Christmas delivery and no orders will be fulfilled from December 15-January 7. Sessions will take place at my studio in Prior Lake, 16288 Main Ave #111. Families with more than three children may want to consider purchasing two spots, but we will do our best to get everything done in our time allotted.
Sessions will begin on the half hour. I will list the times available below, and remove them as they are taken. After you have paid for your session, please let me know your top three choices for times by either commenting below, sending me an e-mail at email@example.com or by including a note when checking out with Paypal.
Simply click up top where is says "Services" to check out and pay for your session. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call the studio at 952-479-0790.
This is a great way to get your holiday cards done the easy way, by someone else! There are only 17 spots available, so it's first come, first served. Thank you for allowing me to support Lauren's Yellow Brick Road Fund!!
