Here's to making some Christmas memories together!
Very excited to be bringing you my 6th annual Christmas Palooza! I love being a part of your holiday memories and appreciate those who come every year, and am always happy to meet new faces!
Christmas Palooza is about more than getting photos taken, it's about giving back. My goal for these sessions is to capture beautiful images, but also remind the participants about the importance of helping our neighbors in need and making a difference. I'm so glad you're interested in joining me this year in making that happen.

What you need to know:
When do i arrive?
All sessions are back to back and there is no wiggle room for tardiness. Plan to arrive 10 minutes before your session so you know where you're going and that you're in the right place. If you arrive past your session start time, we will only be able to shoot with the remaining minutes we have left. If you completely miss your session, unfortunately there is nothing I can do and there will be no refunds. There will also be no partial refunds for time missed.
Can I bring my dog?
If your dog is friendly, yes! Please make sure they are on a leash and that you bring something to clean up after them.
What if it rains?
I have a backup location in place in the event of rain. Hoping for the best, but you never know with Ohio weather! I'll be keeping an eye on the weather leading up to the session date and let you know if the location changes.
When do we get the pictures back?
Your gallery will be delivered within 2 and half weeks of the session date. I will email you when they are ready.
What if I have to cancel my session?
Hope you don't have to cancel! But in the event that you do, your time slot will be up for grabs by other potential clients. If I'm able to rebook your slot, you will be refunded. if I'm not able to rebook the slot, unfortunately there are no refunds.
