FREE Halloween Mini Session for Charity 2021 — Chicago NW Suburbs Child Photography

Our 7th Annual FREE Halloween Mini Sessions for Charity 2021 event is coming soon!  We will be donating nonperishable food and household items to the Palatine Food Pantry like we did the last few years but will be doing things a little differently because of the continuing pandemic!  I’m so excited to offer another FREE Mini Session after a year with no mini sessions and excited about all of the wonderful things we were able to donate last year!  Thank you again to all that participated in our fun event!

Don’t miss out on this fun event and get a beautiful memory of your child in costume. It has been another crazy year but we don’t want to leave all of our special memories and experiences behind.

Date: Saturday, October 23rd, 2021

Location:  Palatine Forest Preserve


10:00am, 10:05am, 10:10am, 10:15am, 10:20am, 10:25am, 10:30am, 10:35am, 10:40am, 10:45am, 10:50am, 10:55am, 11:00am, 11:05am, 11:10am, 11:15am, 11:20am, 11:25am , 11:30am, 11:35am, 11:40am, 11:45am, 11:50am, 11:55am, 12:00pm, 12:05pm, 12:10pm, 12:15pm, 12:20pm, 12:25pm


The 5 minute mini session space is FREE with a 3 item donation or cash donation.  The Palatine Food Pantry is getting the donation and there is a list of items they need on their website here.  There are 3 ways to donate this year as I will not be collecting directly to keep safe at this time.

Ways to Donate:

1.) Bring your own 3 items to the food pantry and take a photo while there giving it to them. Email me the photo or tag Just Peachy Photography in the photo on Facebook or Instagram. They are only open at certain days and times and contact them to ask about their Covid-19 policies.

2.) Send items to food pantry on Amazon (they have a gift registry but not many items so just use that address and send there directly). Non food items would probably need to be chosen for this option. Min. of 3 items or one larger item.

3.) Send a monetary donation (min. of $10) to the food pantry. This would have to be a photo of check emailed to me directly. I know you can choose not to send it but I will trust that you will so please do the right thing.

*** If you have another idea on how to help the community, present it to me and I’m happy to consider other options.

The free session is for any children between the ages of 2 months and 12 years old.  Each family can reserve one space PER CHILD participating in the event and will get 2-3 proofs for each child in an online gallery.  Children will be photographed individually but there is no limit to how many children you can sign up for the event. No sibling images will be taken for this event due to time restraints and nature of the event.  All children participating in our FREE event must be in their Halloween costumes. The backdrop will be natural in nature with a few simple fall props (hay bales, pumpkins, etc.).

All prints, digital files and custom products are sold separately at discounted pricing for the special promotional event.  Pricing starts at $25. There is no obligation to make a purchase.  Any purchased digital images will be available by digital download from our website in color and black and white with a full print release. Please note that this is last year’s set up for our mini sessions and our backdrop/set up for this year will be different! 

Contact the studio at or 224-801-1680 for details!   Sign up for the event by clicking on link below.  Please fill out one form for each child participating!
