Mother's Day Studio Sessions

I am so excited to put together this special event to celebrate Mamas! I can't think of anything I could want more, besides maybe a nap or spa day, then beautiful photos of my family. Our kiddos grow and change so quickly, having images of them is such a special way to remember. 


Date - Saturday April 22nd 

Time slots - 10:00am
              11:00 am

Price - $200 

45 minute session both inside the Christy Golder Photography Studio, located in Pine Valley California, as well as outside of studio surrounded by tall trees.

Mama's, You will also be treated to yummy snacks 
(I'll have snacks for your kiddos too because we all know that food makes them happier and we want happy kiddos for pictures), mimosas and a little gift from me to.


I've put together a little Q&A to hopefully answer any questions you might have about this special event.

WHO is this event/special for?
I'm opening up my home studio for one day only to offer a special gift of beautiful images for Mother's Day. Families of 4 (maximum, maybe 5, due to limited space) Mommy and me (if Dad can't or doesn't feel like being in photos because lets face it most of them don't ;)
Grandma's want some sweet images with your grandbabies?! Expecting parents, you deserve to celebrate Mother's Day too! 

WHAT is the event for? WHAT should I wear? 
This event, being hosted by yours truly, Christy Golder is for me to offer a special day and time just for you Mama's. Photos make the perfect gift to yourself, your parents (grandparents) and family. I personally understand how stressful it can be to put together outfits for not only yourself but whole family! My best advice is to look at what's already in your closet, why spend extra money if you don't have to! Coordinate, don't match, look for complimenting colors and patterns. Start with yourself (Mom) then move on to the rest. Find clothes that you will be comfortable in, you will be sitting, laying on the bed and snuggling those babies of yours :)
For ideas check out PINTEREST 

WHEN is the session?
This special Mother's Day session will only be held on one day, take advantage! I will only have 5 time slots available so be quick to snatch up one for you!

WHERE is the session?
I've set up my home studio just for you and this Mother's Day session! My home is in Pine Valley California (address will be given at time of booking session) surrounded by beautiful mountains, trees and outdoor fresh air! My studio has a comfy bed for you and your family to snuggle on during your session. I'll have books for you to read to your kiddos as an activity to keep them interested. If you have a special blanket, book or anything you want to incorporate in your session please bring it along!

WHY are you hosting/offering this special session? Why should I take part in this event?
I'm glad you asked! ;) Being a mama myself I hold tight to the memories I have with my babies, especially the photos!
I wanted to do something special for all you other mamas because you deserve it!
Talking money is not my favorite part of this photography gig but I am offering a big savings for these sessions. I typically charge $300 for an outdoor family session. Having two locations for these sessions gives you more!

Hope that can answer some questions! And I hope it gets you excited for this Mother's Day Event I'm hosting because I am! On to the photos of a mommy and me session I did in the studio!

Blueberry crumble muffins

I am not a baker. However, I do enjoy baked goods. I found this recipe for blueberry crumble muffins the other day on PINTEREST that the kids and I whipped together in about 30 minutes. I will not disclose how many I indulged in but lets just say they are pretty amazing. The perfect blend of flavors, not dry at all! 
P.S. I had them in the oven for about 20 minutes, it recommended 20-25 minutes and I used half and half instead of buttermilk because that is what I had on hand.

you can find the RECIPE HERE on my Pinterest Board.

Lopez family-Newborn Photography

Little Andres Alfonso Lopez was born on February 8th 2017 to Alfonso and Joanna Lopez. This cutie was so calm and good for his newborn session and his big sister's were so helpful and loving! I absolutely love and feel so privileged to document this time in family's lives, I know how quickly the newborn phase comes and goes.

James & Brianna-Engagement

This couple, all the heart eyes for them. It was such a joy and pleasure to shoot their engagement photos! It helps that they are both good looking and so in love, makes my job easy ;)I've known James for a very long time, he is a good friend of my hubby, and turns out I knew Brianna from my past, she was good friends with my little sister back in junior high!
One thing stood out to me while hanging out with them, was how attentive and caring James was toward Brianna. They have such a sweet, genuine and tender love that started out with a friendship, I'm so happy they found each other. Congratulations on your happy ever after!
I was so happy to work with another creative who provided the gorgeous flower crown Brianna is wearing, Ashley is currently building her portfolio so please let me know if you need any floral work and I can provide you with her info! 
Prepare for photo overload!! These were too good not to share.
