The Oliver Sessions | Baltimore Maryland Baby, Child & Family Photography Mini Sessions


The Oliver Sessions – a fundraiser

Saturday, March 27, 2010 at Gail’s studio near Catonsville, Maryland

The $100 session fee includes a 20-minute portrait mini-session, 5-10 images posted to a password-protected web gallery, and one high resolution digital file.  Additional files are available at a discounted rate of $50 each.  All proceeds made from these sessions will be donated to the Oliver Fund.

“There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world…”

I had a session scheduled for next week with an adorable little boy named Oliver. Oliver was born with heart troubles and Down syndrome.  Sweet baby Oliver sure had a rough start.  He has had multiple health issues from day one, but that did not stop anyone from falling deeply, madly, passionately in love with him.  He had open heart surgery late last week, things went well and everything was perfect…right up until it wasn’t.  He left this physical world, but lives on in the hearts of so many people who loved him.  We are so thankful for the time we did have with this incredible little boy.

Proceeds from these mini-sessions will be gifted to Oliver’s parents to ease their financial burdens in their time of grief.

Contact Gail ( for more information and to schedule a session – availability is limited.

UPDATE!!! A VERY generous patron is covering the donation of a mini session for a needy family. Leave me a comment below and I’ll pick a random comment below for a free mini session and one free high resolution file – be sure to leave your email! This is short notice, I know, so the session can take place anytime but must be redeemed before July 1, 2010. Session can be used for Easter pics, Mother’s Day, engagement pics, pet portraits – just about anything you’d love to have a few images of.   Session to take place at Gail’s studio.  Contest ends Sunday March 28th at midnight. will be used to pick winner.

Last update 4/1/2010:  Contest has been closed and winner will be announced with a sneak peek from our mini session marathon later this week.  Thank you so much for all the kind thoughts, words and prayers!

Karin Shortino - Hi Gail,

We love your pictures and can’t wait to see you Saturday for the Oliver session. If we would win a mini session we would surprise my mother in law with family pictures for mothers day. She loves pictures and has been talking about a picture of her children and their families for a long time. It would be the best gift imaginable for her 🙂

LaKeisha Souter - Hi Gail – We just did a family session and are still in love with our photos. But I decided to toss our “hat in the ring” for the drawing. I would probably give the session to my mom or just for the kids this time. This is so nice of you to give of your time for a family who has suffered a loss.

Kendra - Gail- This is a wonderful thing you are doing. I think I might be a little late to this. I thought it went until April 1st which bums me out. I was hoping to get a session for Brendon and our new little arrival. My birthday is next week and it would be a great gift for myself 🙂 Pictures of my two whiny butts :p

Sarah’s baptism was equally beautiful – her Christening gown was simply to die for – handmade by her great grandmother. I love all that tradition stuff! The baptism itself went off without a hitch and Sarah hardly made a peep! It was a lovely service, followed by a great party. After that we did a few portraits of the special girl in her gown and she was quite the little model for me. I love photographing this girl!
