75 lbs of colored powder to bring you THIS + Fall Mini Session Event!

What does…

75 pounds of colored powder

A 24ft / 12ft tarp

4 seal-able plastic heavy duty containers

2 hours of setup

5 hours of cleanup

3 rambunctious boys


…ALL have in common?


Besides being a HUGE time-suck, mess, and leaving my hands looking like a smurph…it’s ALL in preparation for our Fall Mini Session Event!

The event is a 3-day event with 12-15 minute mini sessions, with gorgeous and fun “normal” family/children’s portraits at the beginning, and 2-5 minutes of “not normal” color fight fun at the end! (get as messy/not messy as you want! The powder is food-grade and washable)

“Normal” photo session at the beginning – some formal, some goofy!

And, as always, WE’LL be the ones to clean up the mess!

Before I get into ALL of the details, let me share just how fun the mess was!

All the FUN of a color run, WITHOUT the “run”!

***NOTE: Athletes, dancers, cheerleaders, couples, you do NOT need young children to participate in these photos!

Introducing….Drum Roll Please…

 Fall Family Mini Sessions + color fight kicker at the end.

 NOTE: Dancers and ALL athletes welcome to partcipate!

Think 10-15 minute photo sessions to get a grand family portrait update for this year’s Holiday cards, AND the last 2-3 minutes will be a BLAST of throwing red and green colored powder at each other! (Food grade powder, washes out of clothing easily) Your kids will love to get the chance to throw the powder in the air and at each other.

That’s right, the first 10 or so minutes is for getting heartwarming, tickling, bear-hugging images of you and your family. The LAST 2-3 minutes is for getting rambunctious!

And you know what ALWAYS (ok…95% of the time) makes kids behave for family photos? The chance to do something rambunctious & naughty!

While the color fight portion is OPTIONAL, I recommend you do it, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing! Because honestly…I’m not sure when or IF I’ll be doing something like this again, mostly because of the mess it creates!

Who this is perfect for:

If you’ve been trying to drag your husband to family photos, but he isn’t diggin’ it…this is perfect! Short, sweet, AND fun!

If you’ve had a traditional, longer 45-60 minute family portrait session done in the past 1-2 years and don’t want to invest in a full on session, this is perfect for you.

If you love having your photos taken, SO MUCH that you do it multiple times a year, and this time you’d really just like a nice portrait for your Christmas Card and a few gifts, and you don’t want to go full on in for an album, this is perfect!

If you don’t know WHAT to get your parents for the Holidays, because, let’s face it, they buy everything they want! Then this is PERFECT for you! Photos are grandma’s DREAM for a Christmas gift!

If you ARE a grandparent, and want photos with your grandkids! Or, if you want to give one of these sessions as a “pre-holiday” gift…as a “hint-hint, nudge-nudge” for what YOU really want for Christ

If you just don’t have the time to put together everything for a full on portrait session. Where DID the year go? And now it’s almost Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and CHRISTMAS!


FINALLY, a photo session your kids will be EXCITED about, and where you don’t need to worry if they misbehave (because misbehaving is the point of THIS session!)

 You might be wondering – Can I JUST have my kids photographed? The answer is – yes. Though, I encourage you to BE in the photos as well!
