Summer Fun with SBS Photography
Updated: Jun 21, 2019
Hello and Happy Summer!
While Mother Nature is making it hard to get into the summer spirit this year with all this rain, it’s time to announce some special summer offerings!!
For those of you new to SBS Photography, mini sessions are special, smaller versions of our full sessions, that give you the opportunity to try us out, and get some great photos. These sessions are usually for a limited time, and have a variety of themes. So far this summer we will be starting off with two mini sessions, with the potential to add a few more based off of interest!
Sunset Beach Mini Sessions
When I think of summer, I instantly think of the beach(maybe that’s just the Long Island side of me coming through). These fun mini sessions will be held at Silver Sands State Park in Milford, CT. The session will be about 30 minutes in length, and I’ll be offering two sessions per night. The first time slot will have more golden hour photos (lots of golden light) with the start of the sunset. The second session will be all sunset (and hopefully lots of great colors). These sessions are weather dependent, and we will discuss rain/cloudy weather dates when booking. After your session you will receive a private viewing gallery where you will select 10 of your favorite images to download for your own personal gallery, as well as on photo to receive as an 8x10 print. The price for this session is $99

Sunflower Field Sessions
I am so excited to open these sessions this year! As of right now, our session will be held at Buttonwood Farms in Griswold, CT. I’ve heard (and seen) great things about this location. These sessions will be 20-30 minutes in length. A special note, no props are allowed on the premises for photos as per the farms guidelines. After your session you will receive a private viewing gallery where you will select 10 of your favorite images to download for your own personal gallery, as well as on photo to receive as an 8x10 print. The price for this session is $125 (includes your admission into the sunflower field). I am planning on doing this session on Thursday July 25th with rain date of Tuesday 30th. If there is enough interest, I will open up a second date, at a possible second location.
Session times available:
Model Calls for the Summer
Model calls are a way for photographers to test out sessions that they might be thinking of offering in the future, photograph new props or outfits, or practice a new technique they may have learned. All models must sign a contract allowing me to use the images from their session on my webpage and social media pages for marketing purposes. In exchange they will receive 8 digital images of their choice, with the option to add on additional digital images and/or products at a discounted price. If interested please contact me through email at SBSPhotoCT@gmail.com or through the message button on my Facebook business page
Best Friends Maternity Session: Are you and your best friend both expecting? Join us for a “best friends” maternity session featuring some of our new Chicaboo maternity gowns that will be added to our complimentary maternity client closet. Must be between 28-36 weeks at the time of the session. Session to be photographed during the month of July.
Class of 2020 Senior Session: I’m looking for 2 Seniors to work with on photographing some marketing material for Senior sessions this year. Senior sessions are as unique as the student who is being photographed in them. These sessions will be custom designed with input from the seniors to reflect their interests and aspirations. (Please note- if a location is picked by the model that requires a location fee, the model would be responsible for that cost).
Fruit Bath/Milk Bath Mini Session: A special model call for sitters-toddlers! Time for some fun in the sun, with a splash sessions! We’ll do a fruit and water set up and a milk bath set up. Model must be able to sit unsupported. Session will take place on a Tuesday or Thursday during the day.
Family Color War Session: Looking for a family that doesn’t mind a little bit of mess, in order to have a whole lot of fun! You supply the backyard and the white shirts, and I’ll bring the paints. And you’ll get a fun canvas that you create as part of the session. Must be available during the late afternoon on a weekday for this session, and have a private location for this shoot (as it would be a little too messy for a park).
Happy Summer! --Stephanie
