Pumpkin Days, Snow Days and Sleigh Days, OH MY!

New this season at Monkey Tree is a beautiful small private studio space in League City... just perfect for setting fun little themed scenes!  We also have some outside space to use when appropriate.

Our themed sets will be available for quick sessions, priced as follows:

  • 10 minute appointment, one 8x10"print (photographer's choice).... $40
  • 10 minute appointment, one digital image file.... $75
The images from these sessions will be posted to online galleries, should you wish to purchase additional digital files or prints.

You're absolutely welcome to purchase a longer session, please inquire if interested.

PUMPKIN DAYS (indoor)!
October 29 through November 3.  Bring your little pumpkins by in their fall colors or Halloween costumes!  Watch the blog and facebook page for previews of the Pumpkin Days set.

SNOW DAYS (indoor)!
December 1 through 7.  This will be a relatively clean-looking, white/gray set with lots of frosty feeling goodness.  No matter what the weather's doing outside, dress in your favorite Christmas pajamas, winter hat & mittens, snow boots, holiday best, or even a tacky Christmas sweater!  

SLEIGH DAYS (outdoor)!
December 1 through 7.  The elves are busy building our sleigh... we're so excited! It'll be sized just for kids and parked in a snowdrift.  

Holiday Card Sessions for 2013: Outdoor Family Shoots


We have two options for your family session this year, both ring in at $250.  We supply props, furniture, and most of the time... entertainment so the kiddos will look happy!  Our natural and architectural backdrops will mostly involve greenery and neutral colors, so choose any color scheme you'd like for your family's wardrobe.  Your session will last about 15-20 minutes.  The goal is to get one really great group shot, then if there's time we can look at individuals or groupings.

Print Option Package, choose one of the following:

-Fifty double-sided holiday cards (featuring your beautiful family pictures!) with return-addressed envelopes, delivered to your doorstep. Images will be posted online for card selection. You'll be able to purchase additional photographic prints through December 20.  Additional holiday card quantities are also available. Card production & shipping time is about 2 weeks, please keep this in mind when scheduling! Rush orders (3-4 day turnaround) will incur an extra fee of $100.


-$150 Credit toward photographic prints.  You'll be able to purchase additional photographic prints through December 19 via the online gallery.  Print orders placed by 12/19 will arrive in time for Christmas.

Digital Option Package:

All final, edited images with permission to make your own personal prints up to 8x12".  This option allows you to order your own holiday cards and make small and medium sized prints.  Larger sized prints should be ordered through Monkey Tree because they often need more in-depth editing. Digital files will be delivered online via
