Holiday Mini Sessions
We, at Little Wonders Portraiture, are so excited for 2017’s holiday mini sessions! Little Wonders Portraiture is offering three different Holiday Mini Sessions this season, north Houston in Kingwood, Humble and Dayton TX. Two sessions are family oriented and the third option is for the kiddos. We, also, welcome those needing maternity, engagement, milestone sessions, etc. to take advantage of the special pricing. So check us out and reserve your spot before they are all gone.
Our first Holiday Mini Session is our fall session to be on location just outside of Kingwood in Humble Texas. This particular session is considered our “Fall” session and will focus around family. Ideally families should wear fall colors to coordinate with the woodsy area and the limited fall props. We have opted to not have full fall setups to allow the focus to remain completely on the family. We will however have a few pumpkins and other elements to incorporate and even hold little ones attention. Our Fall sessions will be held Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22. To reserve your time and for more details please visit our mini session link on our website.
The second option for a Holiday Mini Session with Little Wonders Portraiture is our Christmas Mini Session also taking place in Humble TX. The session will have a simple setup consisting of a white lights and elegant seating giving that Christmas feel while still allowing the focus to remain on the family. We recommend winter color choices for your family’s wardrobe. Take a look at our “what to wear” pinterest board for some great ideas on colors and coordinating the family with contrasting tones. Our Christmas Mini Sessions will take place on Saturday, November 4 and Sunday, November 5. To reserve your time and for more details regarding this holiday mini session please visit the same link as above.
Now!….about our third option for a Holiday Mini Session! I am BEYOND excited about this mini. Our third choice is our Milk, Cookies & Santa Mini Session. This mini session will be extra special for the little ones. Featuring a milk and cookie feast with the big man himself!! This particular mini session will take place in Dayton Texas. Our indoor setup will be a soft setup with creams, whites, hunter greens, weathered wood and deep reds….and of course Christmas Lights and Trees. To keep with the Christmas feel and soft setup I recommend dressing little ones in Christmas attire or creams, whites, golds and khakis. I think jeans will work well too. Our Milk, Cookies and Santa Sessions will take place on Saturday, November 12 and Sunday, November 13. To reserve your time and for more details regarding this holiday mini session please visit this link.
Once we receive your reserved time and payment we will send out electronic forms to gather and give information to you. If you have any additional questions please simply comment on this post or e-mail me at email@example.com.

Life Must Go On
I had the hardest time coming back to work after what all of us Texans went through and continue to go through in these past couple of weeks or so but life must go on. The amount of devastation we have witnessed has been beyond traumatic. According to Wikipedia “the resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.” That is traumatizing.
Texans have lost so much through this catastrophe. Homes, photos, vehicles, food, jobs, businesses and the list goes on and on. I’m so relieved the the number of fatalities in relation to the numbers devastated remains very low. The majority of us still have our lives, we still have each other. Nothing is more valuable that so life must go on.
Now that the initial shock of this enormity has subsided somewhat I wonder how life must go on. Well….Texas Strong, God Strong, that’s how. Nothing has put a bigger smile on my life than seeing the number of people, of Texans who have bonded and held strong with one another, to one another. It has been inspiring….It has been comforting. It’s been down right amazing. And I honestly, after everything, I feel proud to be a part of such a place and would hate to miss out…..ironic right? It has restored my faith.
The obtaining of new material possessions, new homes, new cars, replaced clothing, etc. will of course come into play. It must, because life goes on. I, however, hope that we hang on deeply to the comradery we have witnessed and participated. I hope our faith remains fixed in God whom has answered a lot of prayers. It doesn’t get much sweeter than that. I hope we can be an example to other communities, to other states….to our nation. This devastation may have ripped our lives apart but it bonded our lives together.
As a Christian and a Texan through God and with my community my life will continue. I now have a new appreciation for my particular job that was so hard to return to. As I drove through collapsed neighborhoods witnessing all that was lost and the families beginning recovery, I reflected on how all life moves forward. Time doesn’t stop for a hurricane. Children continue to grow, relationships continue to blossom, and we all continue to get older. Its important to capture those moments while they are fresh. Life must go on and when the moment passes it is gone forever. I hope somehow I can help provide and/or replace those images…. those lost portraits with new ones…..those never taken with captured memories. Portraits of families still intact…. portraits of the dear friends we have made. Those are the important things we have retained and gained through this storm. Let’s all hold onto them.
I now have a new found excitement in the freshness of our attitudes, the life within our cities, homes and jobs. What a blessing!….Life must go on.

Newborn Mini Sessions
Little Wonders Portraiture is so excited to now be offering three Newborn Mini Sessions every single month! These limited sessions are perfect for the parents, on a budget, looking to get only a few digital images of their precious new baby boy or girl with a professional newborn photographer. The Newborn Mini Sessions are a timed one hour session for the newborn baby only. To keep costs low no sibling or parent shots will be taken during the session. Due to the session having a time limit it is highly recommended that parents bring their baby 5-10 minutes early in an effort to get settled and to not miss any shots that could potentially be captured. Newborn babies should be between 5-14 days old to maximize the pose selection.
Each Newborn Mini Session will include a pre-consultation by phone to plan for the two studio setups consisting of one bean bag color and a backdrop/floordrop option. All studio accessories and props are available for use in your session. The session takes place in the home studio of Little Wonders Portraiture in Kingwood, TX. You can view my studio by visiting the studio page.
The Newborn Mini Sessions, priced at just $375, includes 5-8 digital images, printable to 8×10, and selected from an online gallery. Your images will arrive to you, through e-mail, in a download link with a printable image release. The sessions are available for new client inquiries only and may not be combined with any other sessions or offers. If you have any questions or would like to grab up one of these spots for your due date month, you may contact me, Sheila, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tween Model Call
Announcing our first model call of the year! What is a Tween Model Call, you ask? Well let me tell you. First off, a Tween is a youngster, according to dictionary.com, that
I’ve noticed in the past several years, as I have grown in the photographer community and gained many photographer friends across the country that no one really focuses on this precious stage of life. This age seems to be, for a lack of a better word, forgotten. We celebrate the newborns, the milestones, the first birthdays, young children, and then we jump to high school. We need to celebrate these last years of childhood….before entering teen-dom. For this particular model call I chose to ask for tween girls in an effort to utilize the opportunity to do some stylized photos with ball gown or vintage type dresses….as well as some normal, nice outfit, portraits.
So, after all that here’s the low down. I’m looking for tween girls, between the ages of 10-12, who are comfortable being in front of a camera. I’ll be spending the month of February gathering applications and selecting girls. The number of girls selected will depend on the number of applications received. March will be a month of my gathering and/or purchasing dresses, planning shoot locations and getting to know the tweens and their parents. At that point I’ll be scheduling the sessions, according to what works with each tween, in the month of April and May when spring is in bloom.
If you or your girl are interested in participating in the tween model call please submit to me, at Little Wonders Portraiture, 3 photos (cell phone pictures will work), their name, age, height and dress size before February 28, 2017 to be considered. As a thank you for those selected you will receive your choice of a digital/print packages and a discount on additional items. Those not selected will receive a discount for a future session with Little Wonders for their tween or their family.
