Gypsy Summer Photoday

June 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment



Okay guys ~ We had to postpone this photo day due to a chance of rain, but we have rescheduled our Gypsy Summer Photoday for July 19th! We still have a few available time slots! Scroll on down for details and booking information! Send me any questions you have that are not answered in our FAQ section at the bottom of the page to All photos on this post are from our first photo day with the airstream, and oh my goodness, they turned out so cute!


Pricing and details:

Coverage time: 30 minutes of shooting time, during this time we will be working quickly to get the most images, but not so quickly that we miss details.  We have shot the majority of our photo days in 15 minute slots and always get great images from the coverage time, but we have decided to up the coverage time so that we aren't so rushed and can really interact with each family. What I am trying to say is.. if you have a hard to photograph child or numerous kiddos ~ don't worry we will have plenty of time to get ya covered as it aint our first rodeo and we alway work it so that our clients are more than happy with the results!   We do ask that you are on time and ready for us to start on time so that our day doesn't run behind & so that you don't miss coverage time. 


$200 total for photographer's time and talent, set up and disc of 15-25 edited images ready for printing. Payment will be split into two payments, $50 is due to book your appointment and can be paid below by clicking 'buy now' button.  The remaining $150 will be due at time of session, in form of cash or check.  Please note, when purchasing our disc you are able to print images at local printing labs, or online labs, you are able to copy disc and give to family or friends, you may also share images online, on social media sites, etc.  we do require photo credit to be given to Southern Grace Photography and for no reason should the images be altered.. example:  when uploading to Instagram ~ please DO NOT apply a photo filter to our images as it represents our work and should not be altered in any way.  


**PLEASE NOTE** We will no longer be allowing multiple families to share a single photo day session. We have limited time during these sessions, and it is too much to try and squeeze multiple groups in. If you are needing multiple family photos, please book 2 time slots, or e-mail me for information on booking a private 1 hour session. Sorry for any inconvenience! Thanks for understanding!

Time requested:
Cell Phone number


How do I book a slot?  Pay your deposit above and make sure to include your cell phone number, requested time slot~ each area will have a place to type info on payment button above.  With time requests, we will put you as close to the requested time as possible.  If the time is already booked we will put you in next available slot, if that doesn't work for you, please let us know asap so we can fill the spot and we will refund your payment or try and move things around.  In the event we book in full and you have paid, we will refund your payment or try to open a slot up for you.  Please note that the blog line up is updated manually and your name will be added as soon as possible.  

I paid but I don't see my name on list?  The blog is updated manually and your name will be added as soon as we return to the office. 

What if it rains?  It aint going to.... but for those of you who need a plan at all times, we will refund your payment in full and try to reschedule the day in which you will be able to book again.  In the event of rain we will start to call in order of line up (this is why entering cell number is so important). We do ask that before preparing for the day, please check the blog to see if we have posted anything.. we will first post updates to the blog in event of inclement weather.  

What do we wear?  We suggest anything vintage inspired ~For this set I would highly suggest the women go with Lace & buttery creams or pale colors, Lace Lace and more Lace! You can then match the rest of the family off of that ~ suggestions would be boys in jeans bare feet, and simple linen style button up, with sleeves rolled.. or a vintage looking vest, or tie... (when I say tie or vest, I am not suggesting dressy attire, but more of a vintage feel)  If the shoot is just for little girls, we love Matilda Jane Clothing & parents and siblings can match to the little girl's outfit.  We love patterns when done right ~ make sure that when using stripes or plaid you don't make the patterns fight each other.. meaning if Dad has on horizontal stripes don't put your son in vertical stripes ;)   I will list some clothing boutiques that we love for the kiddos and as for women ~ If the Loving Bull, Mountain Treasures, or Lavish, Gun Powder and Lace (local boutiques) has it, we will love it!

How early do we arrive?  If you appointment is down for 11:30 then please arrive at 11:15, so that you can get unloaded and be ready for your session as soon as I finish the client before you.. please do not be rolling in at 11:30 as it will take off from our shooting time.  Each client will be photographed at their time slot and if you are late then you will loose time as we will have client or needed break directly following your session.  

How long will it be before we get our disc?  We ask for 4-6 weeks of editing time during this time of year, this allows for proper editing to be done to each image.  We normally knock them out well before this time frame (sometimes as soon as 1 week later but do ask for proper work time on images.) 

Where do we pick our disc up from?  We can mail your disc if we know in advance, otherwise all discs are left in our drop box located at our studio in Ellijay.  Studio address is 572 Maddox Drive Suite 220 Ellijay Ga. 30540 and lock box is outside our door.  Code to open box will be given to you upon completion of your disc. 

If I have a question, who do I call?  Call Casey at the studio she is there on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.   Please do leave us a message if you call when we are out & we will call you back.  Studio number is 706-635-3335  Please save this number and contact us through this number as my cell phone is no longer the way to contact us (want to have a personal phone/life again lol) Casey can also be emailed at 


Thanks y'all ~ we simply CAN NOT WAIT for this photo day to happen!  

XOXOXO, Nichol & Casey
