October is Family Portrait Month at Jesse Valley Photography

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

They say it’s better to give than to receive. Why not do both?

Enjoy giving and receiving in October during Family Portrait Month. For every family session booked, we’ll give a $50 donation to Operation Smile and you’ll receive $50 off your session.

Family portrait sessions are fun and memorable at Jesse Valley Photography. Whether at your home or a favorite park, we’ll capture your family laughing and interacting together. You can even include your pet! These artful and candid memories are perfect for holiday cards, gifts for grandparents and custom art for your home.


Call 612.382.2867 with your calendar and credit card handy. To reserve your session, you’ll pay the $100 session fee (normally $150) and $200 deposit. Weekday sessions can be at any location within 20 miles of Minneapolis. Or if you would like a weekend session, choose your location and time below (between 9 am and 5 pm):

These hour long sessions will take place the following two weekends in September:

September 11 and 12 from 9 am–5 pm at Oak Hill Park in St. Louis Park.

September 18 and 19 from 9 am–5 pm at Lake Harriet.

All sessions need to be reserved in advance. Sessions are on a first call, first reserve basis. So call today to reserve your session—612-382-2867. For your convenience, your portraits will be available for online ordering.

This photo was taken on a recent engagement session with Cody and Mike. We had a lot of fun in Minneapolis playing with some old cameras and sparklers. You can see more of the photos from their session by watching the video below.
