Grin and Share It Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to Grin & Share It's new blog! My name is Tessa, and I'm a professional photographer in gorgeous San Diego, California.

    Grin & Share It was born in January of 2008, thanks to the support of my family & friends who encouraged me to follow my dreams. I am an on location photographer who simply adores what I do. My style is a mix of both posed & candid shots, and I personally touch every single image that is given to my clients.

    Please take a look around, and leave some love if the mood strikes. Comments always put a Grin on my face!

    Enjoy,
    Tessa

2016 Valentine Minis

 

These once a year minis are short & sweet at 10 minutes long.  Ten minutes is plenty of time for me to get photos of all of your kiddos together and/or individually (up to 3 siblings only please!).  A digital downlonad of your high-resolution images w/ print release is included with your session fee, as well as a 14 day password protected online gallery for you to share with your family & friends.   You will also receive one (1) Valentine’s Day card with the image(s) of your choice from your session (Valentine’s Day card is a jpg file that you can get printed at the lab of your choice).  These are perfect to send to family & friends, or even better, why not skip the store bought cards this year and give personalized cards to your kiddo’s classmates!!

This year’s Valentine Minis will be held at Mission Trails Regional Park, right off of the 52 freeway.

As with all of my minis, the spots available are sure to go quickly, and will be booked on a first come-first served basis, so be sure to book your session today!!  Session times will be every 10 minutes between 4:00pm-5:00pm on Saturday, January 30th & Sunday, January 31st.  To book your session, please send an email to: tessa@grinandshareitphoto.com

A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session, and will be deducted from the balance due the day of your session.

November 2015 Holiday Mini Sessions

Here they are, the rest of my minis for 2015…

My twenty-minute mini sessions are great for photos of couples, just the kids, or single-families (Mom, Dad, and the kiddos only please).  Twenty minutes is plenty of time for me to grab some amazing images of the whole family, the kids individually, as well as the kids together.  These sessions, like all of my minis, include a 21 day private online gallery, & approximately 20 beautiful high-resolution images on a CD w/ print release.  The cost for my 20 minute minis is $295.00 (plus sales tax).

This year I will also be including 1 ten minute mini mini time slot at each location that I shoot at.  These special mini minis are best for returning clients, or for children that are VERY comfortable in front of the camera.  My mini minis are perfect for families who just need a handful of images, and/or the “money shot” for their Holiday cards.  My 10 minute mini minis include a 21 day private online gallery, & approximately 10 beautiful high-resolution images on CD w/ print release.  The cost for my 10 minute mini minis are $150.00 (plus sales tax).  Please note that ALL of my Field sessions are 10 minute Mini Minis only. Should you need more time, you can absolutely book two spots.

All minis are booked on a 1st come, 1st served basis, and usually fill up quickly!  To book your mini, please email me at: tessa@grinandshareitphoto.com.  Please be sure to include the location, date and time of the mini session you’re interested in booking.

A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session, and will be deducted from the balance due.  Your spot will NOT be secure until the deposit is received.

September 2015 Holiday Mini Sessions

September is one my favorite months of the year to shoot here in San Diego!  Beautiful weather, no crowds at the beach, and plenty of time to get your Holiday cards ordered.

My twenty-minute mini sessions are great for photos of couples, just the kids, or single-families (Mom, Dad, and the kiddos).  Twenty minutes is plenty of time for me to grab some amazing images of the whole family, the kids individually, as well as the kids together.  These sessions, like all of my minis, include a 21 day private online gallery, & approximately 20 beautiful high-resolution images on a CD w/ print release.  The cost for my 20 minute Minis is $295.00 (plus sales tax).

This year I will also be including 1 ten minute mini mini time slot at each location that I shoot at.  These special mini minis are best for returning clients, or for children that are VERY comfortable in front of the camera.  My mini minis are perfect for families who just need a handful of images, and/or the “money shot” for their Holiday cards.  My 10 minute mini minis include a 21 day private online gallery, & approximately 10 beautiful high-resolution images on CD w/ print release.  The cost for my 10 minute Mini Minis is $150.00 (plus sales tax).

I will be offering September Minis at my three most popular venues:  Seaside Sofa Sessions in Pacific Beach, Old Poway Park, and out at the old steel bridge in east county.  All minis are booked on a 1st come, 1st served basis, and usually fill up quickly!  To book your mini, please email me at: tessa@grinandshareitphoto.com.  Please be sure to include the location, date and times of the mini session you’re interested in booking.

A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session, and will be deducted from the balance due.  Your spot will NOT be secure until the deposit is received.

Back 2 School Mini Sessions 2015

 

Do you wish that you could get better pictures of your kiddos in their back to school best??   Do you wish that you could capture their true personality vs. opening the school photos that come home and thinking, “was this taken right after recess?”.

These minis are perfect for preschool thru middle school aged kiddos, and can be customized to really bring out the personality of your child/children.  You can bring their favorite summer book, their brand new backpack, school supplies, etc, which can be used as a prop during their session.  I will have some props available as well, including: vintage books, apples, & glasses.

Minis will be available from 8:30-10:00am on Saturday, and each session time is good for up to 2 kiddos only.  As with all of my minis, sessions will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis, and generally fill up quickly.  If Saturday fills up, I will add a 2nd date on Sunday, September 6th.

To book your session, please email me at:  tessa@grinandshareitphoto.com

A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session, and will be deducted from the balance due the day of your session.
