Halloween Mini Sessions 2018!

The 3rd annual Halloween Portrait Event is now open for booking! Over the past couple of years, children of all ages have enjoyed a short and sweet little photoshoot in the Studio to capture their awesome and fun Halloween costumes in photographs.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my iPhone for photography. It takes some amazing pictures at any time I want.
