We are partnering with Lindsay Ritchie from Lindsay Ritchie Photography to bring school photos to homeschool families! Blandford's Nature Nook, the natural playscape, will be the backdrop for each session. Each child will have 10 minutes in front of the camera, where a portrait photo will be taken. Included in the cost will be 2 digital images with the option to purchase more directly from Lindsay. Turnaround time for the digital files will be around two weeks. If you would like more than one child photographed, please sign up for each child individually, and use the discount HWGA2022 to apply 10% off of your registration. 
About the photographer: Lindsay is a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom. She is a nature lover, storyteller and image maker from Grand Rapids. Lindsay enjoys capturing the connection that happens to each other and to the world around us when we spend time in wild spaces.
