Hey, friends! I am SUPER excited to be offering my 4th annual set of fall & Christmas tiny sessions! I’ve been thinking long an hard about what to do this year & I’ve been a busy bee planning all the pretty!
The dates set for these gorgeous, outdoor sessions for the “Pickup Portraits” fall theme is Saturday, October 5th & Sunday October 6th. After an OVERWHELMING response for VIP access, I decided to make sure there were two dates available for the fall theme to try & get as many faces in front of the camera as possible. The date for the “White Christmas” theme is Saturday, November 16th. I wanted to schedule for a weekend date to make it was easier on everyone’s schedules. These are held in the early afternoon since the sun is beginning to set earlier in the day to make sure we get every bit of the golden hour glow.
These sessions are available to any & everyone. Families, maternity, engagement, headshots, best friends…LITERALLY whoever. So sign up, get dressed up, have a lil’ shoot then head off to dinner with your loved ones. I want to make this experience quick, effortless & enjoyable. These sessions are offered at a discounted rate & will not last long so scroll down to snag your spot for an afternoon with JKP!
I’ve always thought about offering sessions with an old, turquoise truck but never had the means to make it happen. About a year ago, my Dad bought a 1968 C-10 pickup & I totally forgot he had this gem stashed at his house! My inspiration came when my two sons unexpectedly reminded me about it. As I headed back home from dropping my oldest off at the park to play basketball with friends, Harvey (my 3 year old) tells me that Papu (my Dad) let Kamron (my oldest) drive the old green truck on the gravel road. My parents live in the country where gravel roads are prominent. I still can’t believe I forgot about it! I asked my Dad if I could use his truck for the sessions & he gladly obliged. My parents own a beautiful property about 20 minutes outside of Victoria & because the truck is currently not street legal, we will be staging the truck on my parents property. It’s GORGEOUS out there!
Kim with 180 Rental & Design will be creating the set for the fall theme. The bed of the truck (see above for actual picture of truck) will be filled with soft, fluffy florals in fall colors, blankets & bales of hay. Just a few of the flowers being used are pampas grass, eucalyptus, burgundy amaranthus, sun splash flowers, etc. It’s going to be so cozy & I can’t wait!
There will be two dates to choose from for the fall theme. Saturday, October 5th from 1:30pm-5:30pm & Sunday, October 6th from 1:30pm-5:30pm. These sessions are held in 20 minute time frames with 10 minutes in between each session. In case of bad weather, a reschedule date is set for Saturday, November 10th & Sunday, November 11th.
For the Christmas themed, I always love to keep it super classy & neutral. I love how light & soft colors give every image a naturally elegant look & feel. Call me crazy but I will NEVER tire of photographing a simple & sophisticated set.
Kim with 180 Rental & Design will be creating the set for the Christmas theme. The sessions will take place on the front porch of the newly resorted Hamilton-Oliver house located in Cuero, Texas. Soft white flowers & a rose gold arch will adorn the all white porch at this beautiful venue. A few of the flowers being used are tree ferns, lee-land cedar, curly pine, white garden roses, white mini lisianthus, white sabiosa, white ranunculus, etc.
The date for the Christmas tiny sessions are Saturday, November 16th from 12pm-4:00pm. These sessions are held in 20 minute time frames with 10 minutes in between each session. In case of bad weather, a reschedule date is set for Saturday, December 14th.

What do we wear?
When choosing clothing for your professional session; think classic. Choose something that doesn’t bunch when you button it or if you sit down. Try to stay away from anything with bold, distracting patterns or colors. Choose something that doesn’t distract from your face & has a flattering neckline; no logos or distracting patterns. Clothing with really tight grids or a small herringbone pattern can have a moire pattern effect on camera, so stay away from those tight grid-like patterns. Colors such as red or orange are not recommended. Colors of choice are neutrals such as: blush, baby blue, grey, off white, cream, or mauve photograph beautifully on any skin type.
Should I get my hair & makeup done?
Absolutely! That’s part of the fun! Having your hair professionally styled along with quality makeup will give your photos an extra pop. If you need help finding a specialist, I can suggest many recommendations. As an added note, any blemishes or skin imperfections are included in the cost of the session & will be touched up as needed.
