Fall Mini Sessions to support the Lanzetta Family

******UPDATE: All of the mini sessions are now full! Thank you so much to all the families who have snapped up this opportunity to support the Lanzettas! I look forward to seeing you on November 5!*********

Hi friends, I have a big announcement! For the first time ever, I’m offering mini sessions this fall. While I usually prefer to have a longer space of time with each family I photograph, I am making an exception this year in order to support my dear friends, John and Kaley Lanzetta.

 (You can read more about John and Kaley's journey  here .)

 This is my family photo from a session at Green Springs last year. It's a beautiful location!

John is currently battling Leukemia for the third time in their six years of marriage, and he will have a second bone marrow transplant at the end of the year. 

As a way to help defray the Lanzetta’s medical expenses and offer tangible support from the community, I will be donating all of the session fees from the mini sessions to John and Kaley.

If you want to help encourage John and Kaley in this difficult time, and get some high-quality, heavily-discounted family photos in the process, please book a mini session! I will be offering morning and afternoon sessions on Saturday, November 5th at Green Spring Gardens in Fairfax (very close to 395/495).

You can book a 30 minute session by making a $150 donation to John and Kaley. Your session will include an online gallery for viewing proofs as well as downloads of five digital files of your choice. Additional digital files are available for purchase at $15 each, and prints start at $4 for a 4×6 and $6 for a 5×7. All photos will be edited for exposure and color correction; advanced Photoshop retouching is available for additional cost.

If you have been wishing you had just one great photo from the past year for holiday cards, wall art, and gifts, this is your chance to get that photo (plus four more!) for way less than a full session rate. Plus, if you have a typical session, you will have tons of other great photos to purchase at reasonable rates.

These mini sessions are open to anyone! I’m happy to photograph couples, families, folks with their fur babies, or individuals who want a good portrait for social media. All are welcome.

Please contact me to reserve your preferred time slot for the morning or afternoon. If you can’t make it to a session on November 5th, and you want to support John and Kaley, I will be collecting checks and gift cards for them through the end of November. Please feel free to email me for further ideas about what might be helpful for them. 

Thank you for joining me to support the Lanzettas.
