Sunflower Mini-Sessions 2021

The sunflowers are back! Dorothea Dix Park is hosting their annual sunflower field, and it’s time to get some beautiful & fun photos with the blooms.

Mini-sessions are the perfect way to invest just a little time to document how your family looks, acts, & interacts together at this point in time. Make it a one-time thing, or book a mini-session every year to see your kids grow over time!

This is also a great way to get photo artwork worthy of being keepsakes and heirloom-quality prints for yourself and for family gifts! In addition to my typical artwork offerings, you also have the option of ordering an exclusive acrylic block with a photo from your sunflower session.

The creative fee of $75 includes:

  • Time & talent of the photographer

  • Session planning for your specific family

  • Mini-session with up to 15 minutes of photography

  • Professional photo editing & artwork mockups

  • Photo reveal appointment

  • Online viewing gallery

  • Artwork design, preparation, & ordering

  • Home delivery of artwork

  • Option to order an acrylic block, an exclusive artwork offer for these mini-sessions

Please note: Photos are ordered separately after the session as heirloom-quality artwork. We will have a photo reveal & ordering appointment within 2-3 weeks after your session as part of my typical photo experience, when you will see photo proofs and artwork options, and decide what you’d like to order. To give you an idea of potential investment after the creative fee, a set of premium prints starts at $100, archival wall art starts at $400, and custom keepsake albums start at $1000. Other artwork options are also available! Printed artwork allows you to enjoy these moments forever in your hands & in your home. Social media files are available with your artwork purchase.

When & where?

One day only!

  • Saturday, July 24, 2021 Dorothea Dix Park sunflower fieldmorning time slots beginning 6:30-8:00am, evening time slots beginning 6:30-8:00pm

    • Rain date (if we need to reschedule due to weather): Sunday, July 25, 2021 with the same time slot

As noted above, after your session, we will schedule a time for your photo reveal & ordering session! This typically happens in person, but Zoom is also currently offered as an option to maintain social distance if preferred.

Sign me up!

Hooray – we’re going to have so much fun together! Please use the calendar feature below to see what times are currently available, and select your time of choice.

The lighting during all time slots should be great, but the best lighting will likely be earlier in the morning or later in the evening because it will be closer to sunrise/sunset. I know all these times can be tricky being so early & late, especially with kids. If you can make it work, it’s worth it! There are limited spots available overall. Act quickly!

Your time slot will be locked in with submission of this form, payment of the $75 creative fee, and signing of a contract. Fill out this form to get started, then keep an eye out for an email with the next steps! 

Please note: Depending on how the form loads on your device, you may not see the whole form at once. Scroll down to select the time you’d like and submit your info!


I highly recommend Kelly and Light Creative! During our session, she was patient, kind, and really captured the personality of our family well! The pictures of my husband, me, and our little one turned out beautifully! We will definitely be cherishing them for years to come. We can’t wait for our next session!

Oh no – I’m not available that day!

I get it – life is busy! Thanks for wanting to carve out time for photos anyway; they help us slow down and appreciate the here and now. These sessions are very time-sensitive since the sunflowers aren’t in bloom for very long, so if you can make that day work, please do! If not, please contact me to let me know you’re interested, and we’ll see if we can find another time that works.

I really think I might want more time…

Let’s do it! My typical photo sessions include photography up to 1 hour, and that’s perfect for those of you who want to walk around, have more of a variety of backgrounds/environments, and/or give your kids (& yourselves!) some time to adjust to the camera. Contact me to get our conversation started!

What COVID precautions are you taking?

I am fully vaccinated, and I’ll be happy to wear a mask if you’d like me to for the duration of the session. I typically stay at least 6 feet away while taking photos, but I may get closer at times, especially for close-ups of kiddos & their awesome smiles! I don’t expect you to wear a mask at any point while we are together.

Any other questions?

I’m happy to help! Send over a message so we can chat.
