I’m looking for specific families in order to build my portfolio. You can find the information below for what specific criteria I am looking for and how to enter. The chosen families will receive a complimentary session and 10 digitally downloadable photos which will be made available via Pixieset with print release. You can purchase additional photos from your session for a fee. You will receive these in exchange for a full model release for each member of the family. You can email me about more than one shoot, but I will not be using the same family for multiple portfolio building sessions.
I am looking for a couple who is due before August 31, 2016. You must not currently be more than 30 weeks pregnant. You must be available to do the shoot between 32 and 36 weeks.

I am looking to do a cake smash like session for a child between 11 months and two years of age. In this session we will not be using a cake, but another food item. You must be willing to provide the food item for liability reasons. If you want to do a non food cake smash, that would be fine too. The location for this session will be outside at a local park. I will provide any other props for the session. The cake smash session must take place before July 31, 2016 or the complimentary session will be forfeited.
If you are interested in being considered please send me an email telling me a little about your child, what food item or non food item you would prefer to use and a photo of your child. Feel free to share this with any friends you have as well.
Entries can be submitted for consideration until July 4th, 2016, after that I will let the chosen families know via email by July 8th, 2016.
