With the Fall season right around the corner, I was thinking how blessed I am to be where I am today even though things were a little tight over the summer and I didn’t get to do all the things I wanted to with my family. But, my family and I have a roof over our heads, food to eat, clothes to wear and for the most part we are in good health (I say that as my husband had surgery to repair his bicep tendon the end of April). And, that had me thinking about those that might be struggling (heath, finances, or otherwise).
So, I have been racking my brain about how I can help others through my photography business. I do have a couple things that I would like to do, but for my first round of charitable causes…I have decided I would like to do Fall Limited Edition Sessions in the warmth of my studio to keep your kiddos from being cold, and decided I would love for 100% of the session fee to go to a wonderful, young family that has been through a tough time this past year. I have had the pleasure of photographing this family since their daughter was a newborn. So, these sessions (Sessions for a Cause) will be pretty special because they will be getting a little extra help financially.
With that being said, I want you all to meet Pat, Kelsey, their daughter, AvaLynn and their dog, Scout. Pat has been battling Oglioastrocytoma brain tumors for the past ten years. The most recent diagnosis came in October 2018. This re-diagnosis shook their young family. I could not believe my eyes when I read their post announcing the horrible news. You can read more of his story here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-patricks-fight
Now, let’s talk about these Fall Limited Studio Sessions.
First, all sessions fee will go directly to this family to help them with their financial situation. We know going to the doctor isn’t cheap. And, it certainly isn’t cheap when you are battling an disease or chronic illness. We have no control of the cost of the treatment(s), and at those moments it doesn’t matter, because most people will do anything to beat the odds. I know I would.
So, if you would like to book a Fall Session, all you have to do is go to https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-patricks-fight and donate the $35 (or more if you would like and have the means to do so) directly to their GoFundMe account. You must donate publicly so I can see your name, and in the comments when you donate reply with #teampatrick.
***You must do this step first before you contact me to book your session.
Second, let’s discuss dates and times.
Fall Limited Sessions will take place at the studio of Angi Randall Photography located in Augusta, WI. Session dates and time are September 20th from 1:30-4pm and September 27th from 9am – 10:30am.
Sessions will be 20 minutes long and will be scheduled every half hour. Please be timely. If you are late, it will cut into your session time.
If I need to add more dates and time, I will. All session will take place in September.
Third, let’s talk about products and pricing.
For these sessions, you will have the option to come back and view and order your prints, products and/or digital files or you may choose to view your images in a password protected gallery where you can order your prints, product and/or digital files. There will be three packages to choose from starting at $99. There will be options for a la carte prints and products to add-on if you wish. You will be emailed a copy of the pricing when you reserve your session date and time.
If you have any questions, please let me know. You can reserve your session by calling the studio at 715-286-2644 Monday thru Friday between 9-4pm or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. I can’t wait to photograph this family again in the upcoming week now that he is doing so, so well. The future looks good and I have a something up my sleeve. Let’s hope for nice weather too!
