What to expect:

I aim to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere! We will walk around a little bit, talk, and let your kiddos play! I want your family to interact- talking, hugs, tickles, and laughter! I will offer gentle posing and allow your family to play around within that and be yourselves! I am not providing props, but you’re welcome to bring a couple small things of your own if you’d like (a blanket, a little basket/bucket/stool for a kiddo, etc.) These are only 20 minutes long- short, sweet, and FUN! These sessions are scheduled back to back, so please be very diligent about your arrival time! Thank you!


Franklin Park Conservatory Community Gardens is a beautiful extension of the conservatory! There are tons of pretty areas and man made paths/elements here, as well as tons of beautiful flowers and greenery! There is one parking lot area that is free to use! There is technically two entrances. I always plug in the address for the conservatory itself (listed above), and then vear off to the left, and follow it all the way back. The parking lot and garden area will be on your right. If you see my black Nissan Sentra in the parking lot, you know you're in the right place! If you come to a new street (Franklin Park South) then you've gone a tad too far. Thanks!


Hopefully we get a gorgeous Spring day! But if the forecast is bad enough I will contact you each individually and reschedule with each of you. If the forecast is spotty- I will be there! It will be up to you if you want to keep your time slot or reschedule. I try to wait until the morning of the minis to make any decisions- you never know with Ohio weather, afterall!


Your $50 deposit holds your time slot and is non-refundable. The remaining $250 balance is due at the time of your session. I accept cash, check, Venmo (@heyemilymetcalf) or Zelle (614-648-1994). Checks are payable to Emily Metcalf. Your images will be ready within about 2-4 weeks of your session. I really appreciate your patience! I promise to try to get them back to you all as soon as I can. Galleries will be sent via an online gallery right to your email! From there you will be able to download, print, and share as you please!
