Back to School {Mini Sessions}

How does a mini session differ from a full session?

Our regular “custom” photo sessions usually last an hour and a half to two hours in length and at the location of your choice. Mini sessions are conducted at a specific location and are twenty minutes in length. Only one outfit and one location (predetermined by photographer) is allowed.

This particular session is for children ages 4 and up

As a general rule, children who may take more time to get acclimated to an environment or do not do well with time restraints may not be the best candidate for a mini session.

May I book multiple mini sessions together?

For this particular session, only one session is allowed per family.

What is the cost of the mini session?

The cost is $200 (up to two participants/children per session)—additional participants may be included if time allows at a rate of $25/person but must be approved by the photographers in advance. A $50 non refundable retainer is required to book, and the remaining balance will be due at the time of your scheduled session.

How do I sign up for a mini session?

Email us at info@twochicsphotography.com  Include parent’s name, child/children’s name(s) and ages, date preferred (August 9th or 10th ), and a phone number. This information must be included in your email. Inquiries will be responded to on a first come first serve basis.  Please note that Facebook inquiries and Blog comments will not be counted/responded to.

What if it rains or the weather is bad on the day of our mini session?

In case of inclement weather, mini photo sessions will be cancelled and rescheduled at a future date and time.

Can I get a map to the mini session?

We will email you the address of the location for your GPS a few days before your scheduled mini session. We include this information in a private email to disclose the location to participants only. The generalized location will be in the Forsyth, Georgia area.

When will I receive my pictures?

About a week after your session, we will email you a sneak peek as well as a link to view all of the images from the day.  Only the sneak peeks will be fully edited and are intended to give you an idea of what your finished product will look like.  The images you choose will be cropped, color corrected, and retouched and will resemble your sneaks when complete.  Total turnaround time will be approximately 2-3 weeks depending on how quickly you select your images. The mini session includes ten images, however, additional images can be purchased—we’ll include more details when we send over your proofing gallery link.

What to wear?

The theme will be a vintage Back to School theme so keep that in mind while choosing your outfit! Deep jewel tones would work well with this set up! Remember to use patterns, textures and layers to add visual interest.  Select clothing that is poppy, vibrant and fun! No solid white, black, pastels, etc.  Textured fabrics photograph beautifully. Layers can be added and removed to create different looks in minimal time. When it comes to jeans, opt for the darkest indigo wash. These tend to be the most flattering and least dated.

What to bring?

We will provide props–but if you have a cute idea—bring it along!

When to arrive?

On-time of course! Please don’t be late as this will affect your available session time. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to sign-in.

We’re looking forward to another successful mini-session!

Bless Your Heart {A Southern Dream Wedding Giveaway} **UPDATE**

First of all, we want to thank all of you for such a wonderful response to our giveaway! We were so touched by so many of your stories and wish we could give you ALL the wedding of your dreams!

After hours of reading your stories, crying, laughing and making one of the toughest decisions ever, we have finally chosen our winners!!!

Drumroll please………

Congratulations to Jeremy Blowers and Rebecca Schatte!!!!

We can’t wait to “Bless your Heart”!

Rebecca and Jeremy’s story tugged at our heartstrings from the moment we received the first submission (from Rebecca’s mom).  From there, we began receiving (almost daily!) more and more sweet entries for these two from their families—stories of courage, hard work, determination, trials, strength and most of all, true love.  We wanted to share a few examples of the precious words shared about this amazing couple…. (you may want to grab a tissue)

“Becca and her family have had a pretty difficult life and Becca could have used many of those circumstances to make excuses for not being a responsible adult.  Instead, throughout her life, she has never focused on the trials or difficulties, but has just pushed ahead to make the best of every opportunity she was given.  She pushed herself to do well in school, and put herself through a trade school for becoming a personal trainer.  She has never “felt sorry” for herself, but has always been a beautiful shining light to those around her.  Becca has had a word of encouragement and ALWAYS a huge, gorgeous smile for everyone.  She gave her life to Christ and chose to not just “casually” date around, but only to date guys that would be good for her and that would treat her with respect.  When she met Jeremy, we all knew this was a different relationship.  He so obviously loves her and cherishes her, and it makes me smile because it’s what she deserves!  I love the relationship they have and know this will be a LIFETIME relationship.  They both take marriage very seriously and have put much thought into every area of it.  They have not taken this lightly at all, and I couldn’t be happier for both of them.  They deserve the absolute best start to their life together and I would love to see them win this contest.  It couldn’t be given to a more worthy couple.”

-Anne (Rebecca’s Aunt)

It hasn’t been easy over the years, but our family has really learned how to tough out hard times, and through all of our challenges, we have really learned the importance of sticking together, standing by each other and working things out together. Our bond is tight. When Rebecca first introduced me to Jeremy, I knew he had my approval, but I couldn’t let on to them right away. But they knew pretty quick. He is caring and considerate of our whole family, and he joins right in with our outrageous sense of humor and fun. Right after Christmas Rebecca came and showed me her engagement ring and asked me if I would walk her down the aisle. I choked up some – and I told her of course! She couldn’t stop crying, she was so happy. Ok, I’ll admit it. I was tearing up a bit as well. We started reminiscing and cried some more, and laughed a lot. Rebecca blesses other people’s hearts just by being her compassionate and giving self. If she were to win this wedding, HER heart would be enormously blessed…and everyone who knows her would be blessed as well.

-Alex (Rebecca’s Older Brother)

My nephew is one of the sweetest, kindest, and loving young man you could ever find. He has been thru a lot as a child & young adult. He has Perthes disease. He has had so many surgeries because of this disease & will continue to have problems throughout his life.  He has always had the best attitude thru all his surgeries.

-Jackie (Jeremy’s Aunt)

I had just started to research how to plan a wedding when I saw the “Bless Your Heart Wedding Giveaway” on TV.  God’s perfect timing is amazing!  My heart has been so heavy with the knowledge that I am financially unable to provide the beautiful wedding my daughter deserves. It would be a miraculous blessing to be able to win this wedding for Rebecca!  Rebecca’s father died 11 years ago and my financial status depicts the hardship of being a single mom!  Caring for my family has been my priority, and has resulted in my having been out of work for an extended period.

When you meet Rebecca and Jeremy, you will see the beautiful hearts they possess, and know that the gift of this wedding would be an amazing blessing indeed.

-Cathie (Rebecca’s Mom)

To top it all off…..these two shared their own stories and it was just the icing on the cake to say the least!!!

Unfortunately Becca had a hard life full of disappointment and tragedy. I feel like it is time for this perfect person to get an opportunity for something she can only dream about because of her life. For someone who lost her father, lived in a domestic violence shelter, evicted from several houses, and worked her whole life just to support herself and her family this would be a dream wedding for her.

I really hope that you consider her to win this wedding. I love her more than anything in the world and could not be any more lucky than to have her for the rest of my life so I am going to continue to try to give her a dream wedding but this would literally be a dream come true for us!!!

-Jeremy

Jeremy is everything I’ve always hoped for in a man. He’s loving, generous, hardworking, talented, good looking, and more I wouldn’t change my past if I could. I’ve learned life lessons that can’t be taught by a teacher or found in a book. God blessed me with a loving, optimistic, family that I wouldn’t trade for all the money in the world. He made me talented and one of a kind then brought me a man who loves me for who I am and wants to be there for me forever.  I don’t know when I’ll be able to have a wedding because our gym is our financial priority now. So when my mom told me about the Southern dream contest I thought “This is perfect for me!”  I have always dreamed of an outside wedding in the fall, and to be able to have my friends and family there with me. Please, make my dreams come true!

-Rebecca

We absolutely couldn’t wait to share the news with this couple! We had one little issue.  They live in Alabama.  We knew we’d have to get creative to make the “big reveal” special since we weren’t able to be there in person.  We made a call to Rebecca’s mom and sister and we were ALL in tears by the end of the conversation! Happy, joyful tears!!! We decided to enlist the help of one of the couple’s friends to catch it all on video!! We had flowers delivered just at the time Rebecca was coming into work for the afternoon with a card announcing the big news! (We were hoping to catch her and Jeremy there, but unfortunately Jeremy was called out of town for a meeting).  Here’s a little clip of the emotional reveal….

The Big Reveal!
