5 Minute Photo Shoots with Jessica Strom bio picture

**Entry Period Now Closed**

It started annually in 2009 and after a couple year hiatus, I’m bringing back my very popular kids photo contests! This is a fun way to not only win some prizes, but get some super cute photos of your babies and a chance to meet me and see what I’m all about. Often the hardest part of choosing a photographer to work with is not knowing if you jive with that person or what they can capture for you. This is the perfect chance to see how relaxed my mini sessions are, the high quality of my work, and have some fun while trying to win some free sessions!

First up is Rock The Tutu for the girls aged 4 months (efficient at tummy time or able to sit in a bumbo) to 4 Years, where I provide the tutus (and this year the tops) and photograph the little ladies for you. A 2 day public vote will go live on Sept 14th & 15th where your friends and family can vote to help you win! The boys baseball themed contest will be held in the Spring!

GRAND PRIZE:

Entry with the most overall votes wins FIVE free 5 minute mini sessions to use between Sept 2017 – Dec 2018.
What a wonderful way to capture your family’s milestones over the course of a year! Digital images included with each shoot so no additional purchase needed, no gimmicks, just beautiful portraits of your family!

RUNNER UP PRIZES:

Each entry with the highest number of votes in their age category (Under 1, Age 1, Age 2, Age 3, Age 4) will win ONE 5 minute mini session to be redeemed by the winner’s family by Dec 17th 2017. Lots of chances to win fall family photos!

The Details:

• Entry sessions to be scheduled with me after filling out the form below.
• There is an entry fee of $25 per child paid at time of entry session which includes use of provided tutus and leotards as well as parents will receive 2 high resolution digital images of their child via email after the contest is over to keep, share and print however they like.
• Twins or sisters in the same age category will be photographed separately but voted on together.
• Entry sessions to be photographed at Antioch Park, please give your day of the week preference in form below and I’ll let you know what is available.
• Each entry must either wear provided leo or top OR parents are welcome to provide their own top as long as it matches or coordinates with the pink tutu. Accessories welcomed and encouraged at parents discretion and provision. Full length pink tutus as pictured above provided for standers and up, if not yet standing the smaller multi pink tutu will be provided. Larger tutu for ages 3-4 is more of a mauve pink so purple can coordinate with this tutu, the other two are more of a hot pink. Leotards are ballet pink. Optional onesie for sizes 6-12 Month and 12-18 Month reads “On Wednesday We Wear Pink”. =)
• Entry period for contest runs between now and Labor Day weekend, so lot of time to get in, tell your friends, and even order anything off Etsy if you want to get anything special.

This is your chance to get the cutest tutu photo of your darling princess, rock it out!

**ENTRY PERIOD NOW CLOSED**

Stay tuned for the LIVE VOTE on 9/14 and 9/15!

A couple weekends ago we did the second annual date of mini sessions at Liberty Memorial (the amazing WWI memorial and museum in downtown Kansas City) and had such fun. I only shoot here once a year because while it can provide a cool backdrop of the city, it can be a challenge to shoot here without clouds since there isn’t much shade to help diffuse the bright sunlight. On this particular morning it was indeed very sunny (and hot! hot! hot!) out so we did most of the sessions in the shade by one of the museum entries which have really pretty tile with a quick jot out to the wall for the cityscape. This location may come back next Spring instead of summer, so stay tuned!

Here’s a round up of the fun sessions. The families received more than what’s shown, but here are my faves from each one. =)

This last set was from the first of the day, we had a bit of unique scheduling before the main mini sessions kicked off so we were able to snap a few at the top of the hill by the wall and then down on the grass.

I just shared with you the other day Christine & Jeff’s pregnancy announcement mini session and just saw them a couple weeks ago for their maternity mini at Liberty Memorial. Their story to get here is incredible and one I can personally relate to which makes these photos so very precious and meaningful. Christine is GLOWING and they are going to be such incredible parents. Plus I love the way her outfit and the tiled background really bring out the softness of Christine’s eyes, so pretty!

The 5 minute sessions are really perfect for easy beautiful maternity photos if you’re wanting something low-key. If you do want something a bit more custom, shoot me an email and we can set something up for you. Many parents want to do the breath taking custom studio sessions of their newborns posed and with props, which can and rightfully so run a pretty decent investment (worth it trust me!), so if you’ve found the perfect newborn photographer for you (or I can refer some to you) and still want to squeeze in some maternity photos, come try out a mini session with so you can have the best of both worlds; gorgeous professional maternity photos while saving the rest of your photo budget for the studio newborn photographer.

Thanks again Christine and Jeff for coming out to see me! Looking forward to meeting your little guys this fall! Cheers!

I was worried we’d get rained out but the skies cleared and we ended up with a gorgeous evening for portraits outside of the Kauffman Center in downtown Kansas City a couple weekends ago. The beautiful thing about the Kauffman Center is there are really so many great spots to do mini-sessions and this night I opted to stay out front of the main entrance as I just love the curves of the building up close.

Lydia turned 2! She warmed up to me right away and gave me wonderful smiles, such a sweetheart!

A back to back mini session, meaning two sessions book for 10 minutes. Twice the time and twice the photos. This family was in town visiting and a mini-session was the perfect solution to squeeze in some family photos and you can see what’s available on the bookings in real time!

And one more family session. I’d last seen the girls 6 months ago during the holidays at Union Station and they’d gotten so big and cuter by the day!

I’ll definitely be adding the Kauffman Center to my Fall line up but probably a bit further away from it so it’s in the background rather than close up. Hope to see some of you there! Fall calendar comes out next month!
