Maclay Gardens is Tallahassee’s most iconic portrait location because it is beautiful all year long, but for a few weeks each year it is absolutely breath-taking. The entire park is full of blooms and it feels like paradise. On March 16, 2019, we will offer family mini-sessions at Maclay Gardens to capture this gorgeous landscape and the wonderful weather with a handful of Tallahassee families.
Each $69 mini-session is 30 minutes and can accommodate families of up to eight people. Sessions are by appointment only and session fees are non-refundable. The session fee includes the time at the park, retouching of all the final images and an in-studio order session to help with your purchase decisions. All prints, products and digital files are purchased separately and discounted packages are available starting at $199. There is no minimum order.
To book your session, go online to Maclay Mini-Sessions or contact the studio at 850.339.5799
Some of you may have noticed the flurry of posts today or when looking through the archives, you see a LOT of posts with today’s date. That is in large part thanks to Ryan Kline with WP Tallahassee! https://www.wptallahassee.com
After countless trouble with GoDaddy, I posted to Facebook about my frustrations and horrible experience. Ryan immediately messaged me and asked to help. I was probably a dozen phone calls in to GoDaddy, wasting hours of my time. My website and files were a MESS. The site had been redesigned four times over ten years and GoDaddy told me that I needed to start over, that no one could unravel the knot my site had become.
I shared these thoughts with Ryan, thinking I had lost years of blog entries and archives. Within a few hours, Ryan came back to me with questions and solutions. He not only unraveled the mess, but recovered data that they claimed was lost and was always there when I had a question or needed anything.
He moved my site from the horrible corporate maze that is GoDaddy and now has my site hosted locally here in Tallahassee. I no longer have to call a 1-800 number and spend hours listening to muzak only to be told that no help is available. I have a real, live person who understands my business, what my site needs to do and who can explain things in ways that I can understand. Thank you Ryan, and thank you WPTallahassee for saving the day!
Maclay Gardens is always one of Tallahassee’s most popular locations for portraits. With is beautiful landscaping, brick pathway, secret garden and reflection pond its easily Tallahassee’s most iconic location. Because of its popularity, we try to offer mini-sessions twice each year at the Gardens. Once in the Spring when everything is in bloom and once in the fall in time for the holidays.
The lastest mini-sessions at Maclay Gardens were back in November and I love the images! The sessions were a great mix of posed family portraits with candids of kids playing, hugging and being their natural selves! Be sure to sign up for our email newsletter to be the first to hear about the next mini-session date at Maclay Gardens!
This was the first year we did a full Storybook Santa experience and I think these might be my favorite sessions of all to photograph!! Watching the innocent joy and wonder in the children’s faces as they interacted with Santa Claus was one of the greatest joys I have experienced as a photographer.
We transformed our Tallahassee studio into Santa’s North Pole workshop and the kids had the best time playing with the big guy in red and then joining our elves for some milk and cookies!
Santa has already promised a return trip to Tallahassee next year, so be sure to sign up for our email newsletter so you can be on the nice list!
This was the first time I had done mini-sessions at the FSU Medical School, but I have to say it has quickly become one of my favorite locations in Tallahassee to do family portraits! The architecture of the buildings along with the landscaping really yield themselves to beautiful backgrounds for a portrait session, even if you have no allegiances to FSU!
I am sure we will offer additional mini-sessions at the FSU Medical Center, so be sure you sign up for the email newsletter and be the first to hear!
