JLP Easter Egg Hunt – Sunday, March 26th

Easter is approaching very quickly and we’ve decided to do something a little different this year and offer you sessions at our JLP Easter Egg Hunt that we host annually exclusively for our Calendar Club members. Only they have had the opportunity to participate in this event these past few years, but now you have the chance to partake as well. This hunt is a ton of fun as we let the kiddos loose to hunt for their very own eggs. The event will be held this Saturday, March 26th from 2-6pm. For $25 per child, you will receive 5 minutes of hunt time and 5 digital images delivered digitally via Dropbox. The more children you have the longer the hunt.  You will bring your own eggs filled with whatever you’d like. We’ll scatter them around so the kids can go wild! There will be plenty of smiles to go around while we capture it all! There will be 2 photographers to capture them at different angles to make sure we’ve got it covered. Come and join us!

Simply e-mail us at for a spot!

Valentine’s Day Sessions

St. Valentine’s Day is one of our favorite holidays. It’s quickly approaching, so we are booking sessions now for you to be able to get them back in time to make those Valentine’s Day cards to pass out or get some framed for the grandparents.  All of the information including some samples of each set are below for you to see. We’ve got props galore, heart balloons, heart necklaces + sunglasses and even red lipstick for a smooch or two from mommy. It all makes for a fun time and most importantly great shots!
Love is in the air so come capture it with us!

Our simple white wood backdrop with our pink shaggy flokati rug screams Valentine’s Day with the signature “XOXO” and red arrow garlands. We have different options as far as couches and chairs we can use. The chevron couch is one of many we can use along with interchangeable Valentine’s Day props the kids can hold, wear and even play with. They can sit, stand, lay on their bellies, etc. This set is big enough for several kids so they can move around quite a bit for some fun and different poses. This set is great for all ages and siblings.



King + Queen of Hearts

We adorned this set with the classic red and black hearts with gray as a complimenting color to create a modern set for boys and girls of all ages. The saturated pops of color makes this set an eye-catcher, so don’t be afraid to dress the kids up in bold shades of pink and red. You can even do the opposite and choose black if want. This set is great for these classic colors!
We have buckets and basins, a shiny red faux leather chair, and our chippy red ladder too. We have balloons all over and our tattered red heart rug or any of our diaper covers, tutus, ties, bows, flowers, headband, leg warmers too. We’ve got various clothing for babies so don’t be afraid to ask if we have something. Our stockpile has gotten pretty large in the past few years and we love to share! Clothing choice makes a huge differece in the outcome of portraits. The newer stuff in stores right now are adorable too!!!
This set is fairly small, so not good for lots of siblings but of course we can make it work if you absolutely have to have it!

Bears + Roses

We created a set with the little ones in mind and wanted something a little bit more classic so we brought our vintage suitcases out with our bears in and around them spilling out everywhere. Rose petals are all around and we placed sequined pink and red hearts in the set too to embellish it a little. This is adorable for the the sitters and even the little walkers in your life. This set is ideal for 1-2 children. No more than that since it is on the smaller scale. If you want to bring in your child’s special bear to be included in this set, feel free to do so. It will make for a great memory!



Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year to you all! We hope the start of the year has been a good one for you so far. We don’t know about you, but we’re still getting used to writing 2016 instead of 2015. Oh the struggle! 🙂 Lots of you are back at work and swinging back into things and so are we! We have lots for you to see and can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store for you these next few months. We’ve already started to mock up some set samples and we’ve even started shooting our 2016 New Year’s sessions and they are amazing!

Our New Year’s set is the epitome of glitz and glam! We love how the set screams “Happy New Year”!!! Black, white, silver and gold will compliment the fanciest of outfits. We love to see the fancy dresses and the boys coming in with bow ties. It’s perfect for this set! Our main set is a huge set more appropriate for older children, so we’ve created an alternate set on a smaller scale to better fit the little ones. This set is more bright and airy with golds and silvers with a balloon garland that reads “CHEERS”. It’s sooo cute!!! We are taking appointments for this Sunday only and we’re not sure if we’ll be opening up anymore appointments after this date, so be sure to contact us at to book your session. $150 for 20 minutes on one set and 6 digital images to be downloaded via Dropbox. $10 extra for a CD.
