I absolutely looove this time of year! The weather is warming up, flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, wedding season is starting up, and MINI-SESSIONS!
I look forward to mini-sessions every year. It is so much fun to see so many families and to raise money for the March of Dimes! I usually have families with young children who come and take advantage of mini-sessions, but I have also had couples, seniors, and even a mini-maternity session!
This Sunday, April 22, I am scheduling mini-sessions from 1:00-6:00 at the Old Mill in North Little Rock. This is really a great location for mini-sessions. There is a restroom on site which always comes in handy for the little ones who always need to go! :) There are so many beautiful flowers and different scenic spots that are picture-perfect! Everything is very close, so it is perfect to work into a 20 minute session. Sessions will begin every half-hour throughout the day, and I am scheduling spots first-come, first-served. So email me now if you want to schedule a session! Spots have booked up quickly in the past!
Here is a little collage I put together that highlights the mini-sessions from last Spring and Fall! So many great pictures, it was hard to choose favorites!
Included in your mini-session:
20 minute session with Crystal
Sneak peek posted on Facebook
A private online gallery for one week
25% off any prints or enlargements
A download link for at least 10 full-res digital negatives with print release (at least $500 value)
Total cost for one mini-session: $273.75 (includes tax)
Please email me to schedule your session! -- cg at crystalgoss dot com :)
As always with my mini-session events, 50% of all money raised will be donated to the March of Dimes!
A few things to note:
Mini-sessions are limited to one immediate family (we do not have time for large groups) and ONE outfit only.
Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes early for your session. Our 20 minutes is precious time. If you are late, we will lose that time.
Mini-sessions do not allow enough time for Newborn photos. If you would like to schedule a full newborn session, please email me! :)
Thank you for helping me support a wonderful organization! I look forward to hearing from you soon!
I am so excited to share this lovely summer wedding with you! Jacob and Kristen were married at Park on the River in Maumelle, AR on June 25. The sun was out, and it was super hot! But we had a nice breeze (so nice it got annoying at times!), and it helped keep us all cool. Jacob and Kristen's ceremony was beautiful overlooking the river, and all of the unique details really made this wedding extra special. It was obvious how much hard work and love had been poured into the preparations of the wedding day. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
Congratulations to Jacob and Kristen! You can view their slideshow HERE!
Wow! I just blogged twice in one week's time!
Is it too early to say that I am on a roll??! ;)
*tap tap tap*
Anyone still here?
So, it's been a little while since I have blogged. I always have good intentions, but the blog seemed like it was taking more time than my schedule would allow...so it really started to intimdate me. And, if I'm going to be real honest, I just cannot manage to stay up late at night anymore to update the blog! I'm pretty sure that most of my older posts occured sometime between 12-2 am. :)
Sooo....I have decided to give collage-building a shot and see if it will help me stay more up-to-date with the blog. If anyone is left out there watching this, let me know what you think!
My first attempted collage is for Kristen's beautiful and fun bridal session! Isn't she so cute?!
Thanks for looking!
A custom designed gown.
A jazz band.
And a beautiful couple committing their lives to one another.
It was an amazing day, and I was honored to be a part of it.
Even though it was on the day Arkansas played Alabama. ;) Good thing the bride, groom, and their bridal party were all HUGE Hog fans! We stayed up to date on the game all day. Even when Alabama scored to win....just as the bridal party was beginning the processional. Oh yes. Perfect timing, Alabama. I hope you're happy.
It's a good thing this group is so fun-loving and wonderful to be around! It absolutely did not get them down, and after one of the most charming ceremonies I have ever witnessed, everyone went on to have one fantastic celebration at the reception! Check out some of my favorites from the day!
Dagni's uncle happens to be the one and only Tony Bowls, and of course he designed her wedding gown for her! What girl doesn't want a custom designed gown on her wedding day?!
Dagni, you are sooo pretty!
Dagni was getting ready to go and see John....but a little Razorback time came first. ;)
A very sweet first look....
Fantabulous ceremony site!
Just look decor for the reception! Those flowers!! The linens...omigosh the linens....beautiful! And the seating! Becky Clement with Inspired by Nature and Shawna Young with Young Designs really outdid themselves!
I looooved the cake by Cakes by Sam. Their cakes are always soooo delecious too!
An impromptu performance by two extremely talented friends....
Jonathan and Jennifer were so cute together on the dance floor!
Such a good time! You can view their full slideshow HERE!
Thank you so much, John and Dagni, for choosing me and Sarah to document your day! We enjoyed it so much, and we are so happy for the two of you!
