Good Morning,

It’s that time of year again! Christmas mini session time! I am offering two different types this year.  I will be doing 30 minute sessions at different parks that will be GREAT for family sessions. The other type is 20 minutes and is a new themed session The Night Before Christmas. 


Christmas family mini sessions (can just be the kiddos too) are 30 minutes and will include around 30- 50 full resolution edited images on a jump drive you provide.   These will be $185.   You will also be able to order professional prints.  (To book your appointment it must be paid in full 5 days after booking.)


The Night Before Christmas sessions will be just for the kiddos. They will be 20 minutes at a location TBA on Northshore outdoors, and will include props such as a bed (YES A BED OUTDOORS! HOW CUTE!) , milk and cookies, some other surprises, and would be AWESOME if kiddos were wearing Christmas PJ’s!  These will include around 25 full resolution edited images and are $150.  You will also be able to order prints.  (To book your appointment it must be paid in full 5 days after booking.)


To sign up….. I will post a link on Facebook and my blog Wed Morning Sept 19th at 9:00 AM.   You will then go to the link to sign up online.  There are VERY limited slots this year, so don’t wait too late! I will not be taking any other sessions once these are booked.

The double in my life

Thanks for all the sweet comments and messages to my inbox about the decision to be with my kiddos on the weekends. Don't worry I still will offer holiday sessions on the weekends. (just maybe not as many in the past.)

Those of you who know me and know me well know that my favorite place in the world is pretty much the beach. The area of 30A in Florida to be exact. I just can't get enough of it.

Here is a few pics of the double in my life while we were at the beach last week!

New Hours

When I started Double Takes Photography it was to be a part time hobby to help pay for extras for my family. I was a stay at home mom and it was a great way for me to be able to help bring in an income and be with my girls too.

As time has gone on Double Takes has taken off in a way I could NEVER imagine. It is beyond my wildest dreams! It has now become a 40-60 hour a week job. I am sooo very blessed by all the customers who have supported my dream.

This summer my heart has broken over and over as I have had my six year olds numerous times ask to play a game, watch a movie with them, go play outside with them, and in the same breath say or do you have to edit? As a most of my customers are moms I hope you can understand the direction I am taking Double Takes. I want to work as much as I can while my kiddos are in school and actually enjoy every second with them that I can outside of school.

After much agonizing I have decided I will no longer taking appointments on the weekends. I will be having a set schedule at the beginning of each month to limit the amount of shoots I will be taking each week. I will still do early morning shoots and evening shoots to accomodate parents that need to head to work or leave work a tad early to do a shoot. For holiday shoots I will do a limited amount of weekend shoots.

I hope that you can all understand and that I can continue to take pictures of your beautiful children.

Sweet girl

Oh what a fun sweet silly girl! We got the many faces of this sweet girl. After also rescheduling numerous times we finally got to take her pictures at Fairview Riverside State Park. It was quite a fun shoot. She was willing to show me her dance moves, skip, run, climb trees, and blow her mom kisses! She is such a sweet girl. Thanks M for letting me take pics of your beautiful girl.

Stunning Sisters

This is also girls I have taken QUITE a few pictures of since I have started Double Takes. They are just two STUNNING sisters and really know how to pose around the camera for sweet, serious, and silly pictures. I had a great time at City Park taking pictures of these girls! Thanks K for using me again to take pictures of your two sweet girls!
