Porch-Rait Sessions

Hello, I hope you all are staying safe and cozy with your families and you are finding some nuggets of sweetness in the chaos of our quarantine lives. I don’t know about you, but I am still reeling a bit and trying to figure out what my new normal looks like. I know this so far, dogs really like quarantine.

I know many of you are struggling with suddenly working from home AND homeschooling your kids or finding yourself in a profession that is keeping you away from your family when all you want to do is stay home with them and make them feel safe. This sh*t is bananas!

Many micro business owners are struggling and find themselves in a bit of a safety net gap. I fall into this category.  I honestly never imagined a situation where I could so suddenly be unable to do what I do for a living.

My lovely sis-in-law to be posted some portraits by John F. Martin Photography , located just outside of Detroit, Michigan. He photographed families in his neighborhood on their porches during the quarantine this week. It looked super fun and I thought it would be a creative way to mark this very weird time in our lives. I felt inspired to offer this type of portrait session to my local friends and clients. I think portraits are a beautiful way to document this historic and absurd moment in time.

So for a limited time, Porch-raits are available as a Waynderful (in honor of my dad, Wayne)  Pay What You Can Porch-rait session. Porch-raits are fast, 5 minute portrait sessions on your porch or in front of your home while I maintain a safe distance. Feel free to include extended family members and pets.

Come as you are, dress up, dress down,  be super heros or dinosaurs, be fun, be quirky, be silly, be serious, hold up signs! Whatever you would like! Make this your own! I will offer some suggestions and help with posing and try to be the ring-master of your silly circus! 

In a couple days I  will send you an assortment of 3-5 digital files that are ready to print up to 5×7 at the lab of your choice or share online! Larger prints and wall art will be available for an additional cost. Are you interested in scheduling a Porch-rait session? Click here to fill out the form and get this party started! 

Payments can be made via paypal, venmo, zelle or by carrier pigeon, we will work it out. If your family is experiencing a financial loss due to this shut down but would still like to be photographed I am happy to do it. No questions asked. People often feel confused by Pay What You Can – I suggest picking an amount that fits your budget and that you feel is fair. In the past I have had donations ranging from $17 to $250. I have been gifted meat, eggs and cheesecakes. What I really want, more than anything is for us to all get through this together. And have some fun. So if you are in – fill out the form!

Mama Love {Marietta Maternity Session}

I love a good maternity session. I love it even more when the subject is someone who is near and dear to my heart and part of my crew. Gorgeous Abigail is one of my regular make-artists over at Hot Tomato Portraits and a daily presence in my world. To say that we are excited about the arrival of the newest member of our family would be a massive understatement. We are downright giddy with anticipation! Her maternity session was fun and sweet – just like her. Her fella Seth is pretty awesome too. Take a look for yourself.

Maternity sessions are best scheduled for the end of the 7th month through the 8th month.  We love to time it for that sweet spot where you look very pregnant but can still move around comfortably (mostly). Do you need more information? Are you ready to book with us? Just fill out this form and someone will get right back to you!

Chloe Class of 2018 – Parkersburg Senior Portrait Photographer

Senior year, it sneaks up on you. One day they are walking out the door to their first day of kindergarten and next thing you know, it’s time to schedule Senior Portraits. It’s emotional for the entire family! A mix of exciting, hopeful, and a little bit of sad thrown in. It’s the ending of an era. The beginning of a new one. And all of sudden you have this amazing adult human standing before you. The perfect mix of poise and innocence. You probably aren’t ready to let them go. They are sooooo ready to go. Like it or not, it’s happening. And it’s time to schedule Senior Portraits.

Chloe is an exceptional gal! We had so much fun at her Senior Portrait Session. We shot in the fall and then again in the spring once her cap and gown came in. There was so much giggling!

Music is super important to Chloe so we worked that into her session as well as her love of make-up. She is funny, smart and has an amazing voice! Her make-up skills are on point. This girl knows how to wing some eyeliner. She is going to WVU in the fall and has grown into such a cool young woman. Best of luck Chloe!

We are booking now for Class of 2019 portraits. Summer is the best time to schedule your Senior for portraits. It makes scheduling easy, the weather is gorgeous and you won’t miss any yearbook deadlines. Fill out our contact form if you have any questions or would like to book. Senior sessions are $199 and if you book your summer session by July 1st we will gift you with a free family mini session to use anytime in 2018.
