What an awesome setting for your pictures and you can plan a nice family day in the Fort when you are done.

For $5 per chosen photo (5 photo minimum) or $40 for all photos taken, you can update your family pictures while helping Earthen Vessels Nurse-Midwifery LLC bring women in Northeastern Indiana the option of using nitrous oxide during childbirth. Simply sign up, show up 10 minutes early, and bring a flash drive so we can load your photos right after they are taken.  Leanna will provide a personal copyright release that will allow you to print your pictures anywhere you would like.

Sessions will last about 10 minutes in order to accommodate as many families as we can. You should sign up for more than 1 session if you have a large family (7+) and want individual and group shots.  Keep in mind that each session you sign up for is a $25 minimum fee.  Leanna typically takes between 30-40 pictures within the 10 minute session and can easily do individual and group shots for a family of 6.
