[2010 Fall Mini Sessions] charlotte nc photographer | sheila mckay photography

Announcing 2010 Fall Mini Sessions!  I have had several inquiries regarding fall mini sessions and this is the perfect time to take advantage of this special.  But hurry because there are only a limited number of sessions available! 

To book your session call Sheila at 704.843.7034 or 704.650.9212 or contact

Here are the details and information regarding the 2010 Fall Mini Sessions!  And as always, feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns! 

Where will the mini sessions take place?

Any place of your choice within a 15 miles of 28173 zip code.  If your location of choice is not within this, please inquire for travel rates.

How many people can be in a session?

Up to 4 people are included in your Fall Mini Session due to the 30 minute time frame.  If you have more than 4 people to include in a session, please contact me for more information.

You are offering holiday cards, does this need to be a holiday session?

Absolutely not!  This is a great time time to get a senior or family session, headshot, maternity session, etc.  at a discounted price.   Also, if you would like to have non-holiday cards, another comparable product can be replaced. 

Can I take advantage of the 2010 Fall Mini Session for my newborn/baby?

Unfortunately, mini sessions cannot be used for babies who are not able to sit unassisted unless being held during a  family portrait of 4 due to the 30 minute session time allotted.

Can you explain the Tinyprints card orders in your $195 Fall Mini Session? offers a wide variety of cards for all occasions.  With this particular mini session, you will be given a copyright release to use up to 2 images of your choice for cards ordered from Tinyprints.  I will send you a link to for you to browse , choose your cards, and place your order.  I will send the images to so that you can place and pay for your order and have the cards delivered directly to you.  Please keep in mind that the images you choose for your card will be lightly watermarked with my logo and cards are an additional costs.

What is the difference between your “custom holiday cards” and the “ cards”?

The “custom holiday cards” are press printed and customized with templates I provide for you to choose from and are included in the mini session fee price. cards are ordered from their website with a copyright -released image I submit for you and cards are an additional price that you order, pay, and have delivered to you.

What does it mean “images are edited”? 

Although 8-10 images are provided in your gallery, many more images will be captured in order to get the perfect ones to choose from.  It takes several hours to complete your image gallery.  Once taken and uploaded,  the post processing will include retouching  of scars or blemishes, color enhancement and processing  for artistic beauty.

[Sweet Sam] charlotte nc newborn photographer | charlotte nc family photographer

Sweet Sam melted my heart the instant I held him.  It brought back so many wonderful memories of my own children.  And it was so obvious that A and D felt the same love when they held Sam.  Sam was such a trooper to endure so many positions for his first photo session!  Even Lucky, the dog was up for a photo shoot. 

I was elated when A asked me to photograph her new family and I was even more elated when I managed to get so many MAGNIFICENT images.  I have a lot of images because I just had too many that I loved.  Let me know what you think – some I couldn’t decide – black or white or color.

And help this family out – 25 comments will get them a free 8 x 10!

[Announcing my new website] sheila mckay photography | charlotte nc photographer

After long hours on the computer, I have finally finished my new website!  I am tickled pink and would love to know what you think!

Please take a look at and check back often because I plan to have news and specials posted there as well as my blog.

Just a reminder, that my Spring Special is still going on.  I have had several calls asking if they needed to complete their session my March 30th.  Here are some FAQ’s:


How do I take advantage of your Spring Special? 

Call me at 704.843.7034 or email me at to schedule your session.

After I schedule my session, what then?

We will talk about the details of your session – Where you would like to have your session, what to wear, and the kinds of photographs you are striving for.  Once we have decided on those details, we will then book your session.

How do I  book my session?

Once we have decided on the date and plate, you will receive an email from me regarding session details and policies.  At that time, payment must be received in order to secure your session date. 

Do I need to complete my session before March 30, 2010?

No, as long as we have booked and secured the session fee before March 30th – your session date can be scheduled any time after March 30, 2010 through June 30, 2010.

What happens if our session is rained out or I need to cancel or reschedule?

Your booked session fee will secure your date as long as weather permits.  I understand that things come up.  I only ask that you contact me within 48 hours to reschedule.  Your session fee is non-refundable but we can always reschedule for another date.

How many people can you photograph using the Spring Special Promotion?

 The Spring Special covers up to 2 people – any additional, will be $25 for each individual. 

And don’t forget, if you refer anyone and they  book by March 30, 2010, you will receive $50 off your next full session.  This full session must be booked my Dec 31, 2010. 

And just because this little guy is so cute , I had to post it!   (Hey, I take pet photographs as well)

[you ordinary day – may just be Extra – ordinary!] sheila mckay photography | charlotte nc photographer

As my kids are getting older, and so am I, I say to countless friends how much I miss them being little toddlers.  Do you do the same? 

As I rush out the door to get them to school on time, take them to birthday parties, sleepovers, and sports practices and games, I realize that it is quickly into the rush of getting homework completed, dinner finished, and off to bed.   I know my schedule seems to be very familiar to many of you reading this. 

The recent day home due to snow day gave me a glimpse of what it was like to have them home with me during the day just as we did when they were in preschool.  Deciding on lunches and games to play made me realize that I do miss the ordinary day.   What doesn’t seem like much at the time, really does surmount to be the most extraordinary days.

Just take a few moments to listen to Katrina Kenison.

I hope her words will touch your heart as it has touched mine.
