WHO: Me (the novice photographer) and my Canon 7D
WHAT: I will spend 30-45 minutes with each family taking photos that YOU want. Just the kids, husband and wife, the whole fam, and you can even bring your well behaved, 4 legged family member if you choose. My goal is to take a good collection of photos in several locations around my neighborhood. All photos will be taken outdoors. There will be some "staged" and some candid.

If it happens to be a rainy day we will reschedule...somehow, someway. I'm doing this in November so you will have them for Christmas cards. I will slightly edit the best photos and put those on a disk for you to keep. My goal is to give every family about 15-25 photos on a disk and to have them to you the first week of December.
WHERE: My neighborhood, Southern Trails, in West Pearland. The neighborhood is full of walking trails, ponds, benches, fountains, and a playground. I will likely have you meet at my house and we'll walk to the different locations (so, Moms...don't wear shoes that are too sassy!)
WHEN: November 19th beginning at 9:30 and filling spots in one hour increments. I will probably stop shooting at 5 because it will begin getting dark.
WHY: Because I believe in capturing life, getting photos of all the family members at one time, at least once a year. Depending on how this photo session goes I hope to do this every year.
HOW: Come dressed however you want. Personally, I suggest wearing clothes that fit your personality, and are somewhat casual since you'll be outdoors. You could do the matchy matchy thing---white shirts and jeans, black and gray (like I chose to do), but honestly the trend now is to choose a few different colors (one being a bold accent color) and coordinating, but not matching. Here's a great article on a professional photographers website about this topic.
NOTE---her photos are AMAZING....and although I'd love to be that good, I'm not....if you want super high quality professional photos then please hire a professional. I'm just trying to be honest!
HOW to SIGN UP---I know I have a lot of readers link from Facebook....please don't sign up on Facebook. Either email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here. The times will be first come first serve beginning at 9:30, 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, 3:30, 4:30...if there's an overwhelming response I may open slots on Sunday afternoon, but these spots must fill first.
