UPDATE 10/17/18: Nov 4 is officially sold out!!
This happens every year - I’m FLOORED that it’s time to start talking about holiday photo opps already. Wasn’t it August like two minutes ago?!?
Alas, it appears we’re a mere four weeks away from holiday mini-sessions at Running Reindeer Ranch! This will be the fifth year (that’s right - count ‘em, five years) that RRR and I have collaborated to offer Fairbanks short & sweet sessions to capture the ultimate holiday card picture.
These are my favorite, because while they’re chock full of culturally salient holiday-ness (…no matter how they try, reindeer just cannot shed their association with Santa); these pictures are also quirky, relatively unusual, and a fantastic alternative to the uninspired, cookie-cutter family portraits of the past. And it is SO much fun to introduce kids of any age to the RRR herd, up close and personal. Here are some favorites from last year:
I hope 2018 is the year you will join us! Holiday Mini-Sessions will be offered on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at Running Reindeer Ranch in the Goldstream Valley. (If there’s more demand, we may offer more the following Sunday as well.) Since that’s the day Daylight Savings ends (…that was not awesome timing on my part…), we’re going to start sessions at 9:00 (because it’ll feel like 10!) and go until 4.
Sessions are a brisk and very productive 15 minutes, which is the perfect length of time to meet the reindeer, snap some photos, and then hightail it out of there before anyone gets too chilly. Each session includes your 15 minutes in front of the camera, an online gallery & mobile app, and five high resolution digital files + print release, for an inclusive fee of $150.
Reserve your spot now! Sessions are scheduled on the hour, twenty after, and forty after (i.e., 9:00, 9:20, and 9:40). You can pick your time slot and reserve it by submitting your $50 deposit online here.
I can’t wait to see you there!
