2017 Cotton Field Mini Sessions

Please READ all information before booking your session.  The Cotton Field sessions will be very limited this year.  I will only be a few weeks post c-section and will not be able to take on as many sessions as I usually would this time of year.  Since these fields are only in bloom every 2 years I wanted to be able to offer a few evenings of sessions. I have had many more people express interest in booking sessions then I have spots available so unfortunately these sessions will probably sell out quickly. If you are unable to get a Cotton Field Session then I plan on offering a few additional FALL sessions in Mid November. 

I will be using a cotton field in Cartersville, GA. I will send the exact location details the week of your session.  I will be offering sessions on October 24, 26, 27 & 28 unless there are any unforeseen circumstances with the field or bad weather.  I will save the following week as rain dates and if the field is in good condition the next week and there are no rain dates I may be able to open up more spots.  Those will be announced last minute and would be the evenings of October 29, 30 and November 1.  I WILL ONLY BE ABLE to offer mini sessions for the dates and times listed and will not be able to do full sessions using the Cotton Fields. Mini sessions are only reserved for immediate families. (Couples, Parents and their children or siblings only)  Please keep in mind that these will be 10 minute mini sessions.  I will shoot a few minutes of family photos, siblings and then a few individuals of children.  For couples sessions we will fit in as many different poses as time allows.  It is very important that you arrive at least 15-20 minutes before your scheduled session time to have all members of your family ready.  The schedule is tight but I have been doing mini sessions for many years and everything has always run really smoothly because clients arrive early and are dressed and ready for their session to begin on time.  All sessions must be paid in full at the time of booking since we are less then 30 days from the session dates. Please read the steps for booking your session carefully. I will only be booking through email messages- No FACEBOOK or Text messages DATES & TIMES:  OCTOBER 24, 26, 27   5:30pm-6:30pm           OCTOBER 28 7:50am-8:40am 1. Please email ashleymushegan@gmail.com subject line: Cotton Field MINI & list your desired dates and booking time.  It would be helpful if you would list all of the different dates that will work for your family incase the first choice gets booked. (Sat morning will most likely book up fastest) 2. As soon as I confirm that your requested date is available then I will send you a PAYPAL link that MUST be paid within 24 hours to reserve your session.  If the requested date(s) are booked then I will let you know so that you can choose another date.  If you have not paid within 24 hours then I will need to open up the session time to the next in line.  3. I will confirm that you are all booked and the exact time within the next week.  Thanks for following this process as I will be welcoming baby #3 into the world on Tuesday of this week. I must stick to this booking process so that I can make sure I can reserve dates and times in the order that they are received.  I will be unable to respond to questions from October 10-13 but will get back with you soon after.  Hopefully the above information answers your questions. *** UPDATE:  Here are the remaining dates and times available as of Sunday evening 10/8: October 24 @ 6:00pm     October 26 @ 5:50 & 6:20    October 27 @ 6:20pm                         October 28 @ 7:50am *** There may be a few additional times in PAYPAL invoices are not paid.

Newborn Lifestyle Session

It's been a little while since I have blogged a session but I couldn't resist oversharing a few of my favorite images from this beautiful session! It was such a great session and I loved working with these new parents.  They were both so laid back and wonderful.  When I walk into a client's home for a lifestyle session I never really know what to expect as far as the lighting, decor, etc. goes but as soon as I walked into this amazing home I knew I was in for a treat! The nursery was just perfect with the cutest little details.  Then the master bedroom was just as perfect and elegant in every way.  And to top it off, I couldn't have asked for better lighting in either of these gorgeous rooms.  But the star of the show was sweet little Mila. She was a sweet little angel for her session.  She was an older newborn then my usual but she was great! Here are a few of my favorite images...

Fresh 48 @ Piedmont Hospital

It is always super special to get to share in on the excitement of one of THE biggest days in a family's life. Welcoming this little one into the world and getting to capture her family meeting her for the first time was simply heartwarming. The family was not only waiting to meet this little lady for the first time, but also waiting to find out if they were getting a baby boy or baby girl! Big brother was all smiles and couldn't keep his eyes off of her. Congratulations to this sweet family and their beautiful baby girl!

Foxy little guy!

I just loved this sweet session with the Fox family! I loved capturing all of the precious details in the nursery and seeing big sister loving on the new little guy.  It was hard to pick just a few to share!

Watch out world!!!

What an exciting time it is for this young lady!!! She is accomplishing such a huge milestone and yet she still has her whole life ahead of her.  This talented student is graduating from the Performing Arts Program at Pebblebrook High School. She was such a joy to work with during her senior session! She rocked her 3 looks and made this session a breeze.  It was a beautiful Saturday morning in the Square and Spring was in the air! Check out some of my favorite images from her session.


Ahhh...New Love!

Such a fun time getting to catch up with this mommy while I got to love on her new love! Baby E was such a rock star during her sessions. There were so many awesome images that it was really hard to choose just a few to share but here are a few of my favorites. Mommy looks stunning but little baby E stole the show. Enjoy!

Holiday Season Craziness 2015

Merry Christmas and much love from Ashley Mushegan Photography!!! Prepare yourself for photo overload...

I can't believe that I survived the holiday season craziness.  Well, it wasn't really crazy just super busy! With 80 sessions in just 90 days...I think that I will start holiday sessions in August next year.  So look out for some incentives on booking your Fall & Holiday Sessions early for 2016!!!

It was a great season.  I have met so many new, sweet families and everyone was such a joy to work with.  I appreciate everyone's cooperativeness getting your sessions rescheduled when the weather did not cooperate. 

Please remember to print your images so you will have them for years to come! Please let me know if you need professional prints or canvas gallery wraps. 

There were so many amazing images that I did not share because many of you were saving for gifts and cards.  But I thought that I would share some highlights from a few of the sessions!
