FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS
We are partnering with Wildlings Photography this fall, and are offering families the opportunity to book their holiday photo sessions, while supporting the Aiken PTO. Families have two different photo session locations to choose from. Each session is $150 per family, and will be 15 min long. The session fee includes 8 edited images, with the option to purchase more, and they will be shared with the family online via pixieset. Wildlings will also be offering prints at reasonable prices (price list to come). Make sure you sign up soon, time slots are limited, and they will go quick!
