Mission to Italy!

26 Apr


I’m so super excited to tell everyone that I will be going on a mission trip to Italy this July!  I will be sharing more details about the trip over the coming weeks.  The cost for the trip is around $3500 so I will be doing lots of fundraising between now and July.  If you would like to get involved, I will be sharing the details here on the blog and also on facebook.  Fundraisers that I have planned for the month of May are:

  • Mom & Me photo sessions (30 minute mini session will your edited images on a disk for $50)
  • Mother’s Day gift baskets with Mary Kay products (Prices start at $10)

Above and beyond fundraisers, your prayers are needed and very much appreciated! :)

Anyone curious what the first one will be?? Well, the wait is over, it is here, and it will be MESSY (a washable messy, of course) :)

A session for all the little artists out there:

So, here are the details:

Sessions will be 30 minutes (about 20 minutes of painting and then some time for clean-up) and includes:
* a super-fun 12×12 photo collage to show off all your favorite shots…it will look something like this:

Fun, right?

* you will also have a $25 print credit so you can get some photos for yourself or to give away

* I have designed a limited edition Mini accordion album for these session that will be available for purchase as well. You wanna see it? Of course, you do…so here ya go :)

The cost for these will be $25 each

Now I know you are all very excited and ready to book your session, so I’ll tell you how…

Call me (423-521-5584) or Email me (lorilathan@gmail.com) and let me know that you would like to book your session.
I will email you a registration form for you to fill out and send back to me along with your deposit.
Due to the limited availability of these sessions, there is a $50 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your spot. In the event of inclement weather, I will contact everyone with an alternate date.


I can’t wait to see what all of your little artists create :)
