Last year we had this crazy idea to hold mini sessions at an orchard in the fall. Our goal was to have a fun set design for kids at a local orchard so parents could come and get updated portraits, just in time for the holidays. With all the courage we could muster, we approached Rulfs, one of the biggest orchards in our area and asked if we, 6-month old Jared and Debbie Photography, could use their huge business as a partner for this idea. Had we let all of the negative talk in our heads make the decision for us, we never would have made the drive to the orchard that day. But, knowing that conquering fear is the only way to move forward in life and especially in business, we did drive up there to meet with Linda and Shannon Rulfs. Much to our delight, they embraced the idea with open arms and went above and beyond to support us. They painted apple crates, buffed and polished bushels upon bushels of apples and even supplied us with the freshest heigh bails they could find, in a hay shortage no less!
So first and foremost, a big thank you goes out to the staff at Rulfs Orchard for welcoming us back this year! We couldn’t do it without you guys!
And to our wonderful clients, many of whom we met at one of those mini sessions and have since become part of our Jared and Debbie family, thank you so much for spreading the word! And get ready to do it all again because we are back!
This year’s annual trip to the orchard can include apples, donuts, pumpkins and family portraits! Let us worry about making sure everyone is looking at the camera so you can just enjoy your visit! Family, children and baby sessions welcome. We’ll have the perfect little setup; all ready for you to pop in, get your pictures done, and catch the next hayride!
Mini sessions are 15 minutes long and cost $30. Prints and products are ordered a la carte via an online gallery, available shortly after the session date. Want to get your holiday cards squared away too? We’ve got you covered!
