Get a Stunning, Professional, Family Holiday Photo

Posted by Dani Gurrie in Blog on Thu, Sep 5, 2013

As a family, we have only had a couple professional family photos done (and actually I use that term “professional” loosely). In truth, we have only had 1 true “photo shoot” where the photographer met with us and took our photo – that was over 7 years ago…in Melbourne, Australia…before we moved. I think it’s about time to get a photo that all 4 of us are in and looks good enough to hang on the wall!

So, I am happy to work with The Visitation Academy and allow 30 families to experience the Ultimate Photo Shoot Out. This is an amazing opportunity to get photos from 3 different photographers’ perspectives. How often does that happen? Plus, you will be photographed on the amazing grounds of The Visitation Academy. (Never been? I hadn’t either until recently! Let me just tell you – the school and the grounds are GORGEOUS!!)

Sunday, October 20th
12pm – 5pm
The Visitation Academy (the building sits between Church and 2nd Streets in downtown Frederick – easiest entrance is from Church Street).

Price: $275 per family

About The Photographers (more info coming soon):

  • Bill Adkins
  • Harriet Wise - Harriet Wise is a well-known local and regional photographer that is probably best known locally for 29 years of creating the Bach & Associates, Inc. calendar.
  • Lauren Merrill

How it works:

  • Each photographer will take approximately 5-7 photos of each family.
  • You will be photographed on and around the school grounds – at spaces pre-lighted, and pre-determined by our photographers.
  • Some of the locations will be “staged” with furniture provided by Ginger & Spice.
  • Each family will receive a digital copy of all 15-20 photos within a week or so of the shoot.

Tips/Hints & Must Do’s:

  • You must arrive at least 20 minutes BEFORE the time you have selected.
  • Plan on being at the shoot for about 90-120 minutes.
  • Please do not wear “busy” prints on your clothing.
  • Parking will be available on the grounds if you enter through Church Street. (If you park on the street, you do not need to feed the meters.)
  • We recommend no more than 8 people in each photo.


Please note: If you select a time and see an image saying “Sold Out” that time is no longer available. Please select another time. Once your payment has been processed, we will contact you via email with a confirmation. If you have ANY problems with payment, etc. please contact Dani 240.575.6870. Thank you!
