I hope everyone is being safe and making the most of this extra time together. I know my family has had good moments and bad but we’ve enjoyed long walks together, baking, art projects, cooking new meals, movie nights, game nights, video chats with family and so many other things. Even though there are some hard moments and I feel even busier than before helping my 3 older children with e-learning and keeping the little ones entertained without going anywhere, it is a blessing in so many other ways to get this break from our normal busy lives where we are always on the go. It is a new normal for now and we are adapting and making adjustments as we go. I hope the same for you and your families!
Just Peachy Photography is finally able to operate again for outdoor sessions as of May 1st, 2020. The studio will be closed until further notice per the shelter at home order in IL. I’m so excited to be booking sessions again and even though these are limited and have social distancing measures in place, I know we will have fun!
One trend that was started amongst our time in quarantine has been porch sessions. These are family and children sessions right on your front porch. They don’t have to be fancy but I know a lot of people mentioned that they really enjoyed dressing up and having something to put on their calendars. So you can commemorate this time in your lives. It is one that won’t be forgotten and it will be a time of stories for future generations. Wouldn’t it be great to have portraits taken at home where this is all happening to us?
Porch Session Details:
Session will take place near sunset on your front porch. Sessions will last about 10 minutes and will include 7-10 edited digital files in color and black and white. Sessions are $300 for a private porch session. Available for families within 10 miles of Palatine, IL or Hawthorn Woods, IL.
