UPDATE 2/19/18 - There are still no blooms. The orchard expects AT LEAST 2 more weeks if not longer, putting sessions either Sunday, March 11th but most likely more like Satuday, March 17th. This is not set in stone, just an estimate. Please contact me with questions!
I'm so excited to be able to offer Blooming Peach Tree Sessions again this year in Fort Mill, SC. I have secured a photography permit so we will have the best orchards and I will personally find the best of the best for our sessions.
Unfortunately, we don't have the date yet since you cannot predict when they will bloom! I will be in close contact with the owners and they will let me know when they predict the bloom and then confirm when the flowers are in full bloom!
These will take place on a Saturday or Sunday during the last three hours of daylight (in the case of inclement weather, these may be moved to morning or earlier in the evening) Sunset times varies by day especially with daylight savings on March 11th.
I would assume again that it would be mid March (probably weekends of March 10/11 or 17/18). The flowers only last about a week. Please note that if they bloom on a Thurs/Fri, I will do my best to get the sessions on Saturday or Sunday so it may be very short notice.
With the unpredictability of when these will take place and the limited orchard time with the permit, there are two options for booking:
Option 1) Pay 50% non-refundable retainer now to guarantee a spot. 50% balance is due at the time the date is set. You will also get first choice on times. Link is below to reserve your spot starting now!
Option 2) Let me know you are still interested but prefer to wait until the date and times are set in stone. I will send out a mass email (or text if you prefer send me your number) when the date is set if there are openings/cancellations to those on that list and will book by first some first serve with priority before I tell anyone else! There is no guarantee of a session if you select this option as I can only fit so many in our allotted time.
With either option the session is $250 for a 20 minute session for up to 5 people (cannot be a newborn only session) and includes a private online gallery with lightly edited images to which you will select your favorites, typically within a few days of the session. Once you select your favorite images (6 are included in the session fee but you can always select more digital images or print products) I will fully edit those images and send those to you with a print release.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any and all questions as these sessions are a much different booking process! I'm happy to help with planning outfits once you are booked and you will have full access to my family prep and clothing guides!
