Holiday Family Session Marathon

I am so excited to announce my first ever Holiday Family Session Marathon! Eeek! Can you believe the holidays are almost here? I have been DYING To share about this amazing day and it has been KILLER keeping it a secret from you all. On Saturday, November 16 Nakupenda Photography will be hosting it's first ever Holiday Family Session Marathon! 


WHERE? The sessions will be held in a beautiful, private pecan grove in North Chandler. The leaves will be changing and falling off the trees offering you that authentic fall look all us Arizonians crave but rarely get to see! (The image below was taken in this location)



In this stunning location families will be able to pick from several vignettes for their holiday photos. Styling will be done by the wonderful Linny Jane Vintage. Wet your appetite for this beautiful day by checking out her work at

All families will receive FIVE digital images, with a print release, for their personal use and a small thank you gift for participating. Holiday Sessions will be held on Saturday, November 16th. Time slots will be available in the morning and the evening. 

WHAT IS THE COST? Now this is what makes this day so special. Mini sessions like these are a $120 value. On this day the fee will be simply a donation, small or large, anything you can give, 100% of it will go towards Elizabeth's college scholarship. 

WHY? Well, I think Elizabeth's testimony tells it best.  


"whenever  i go to upcountry   i just  cry to see my  family in  the  situation , the reason   i want to be a doctor  is that  is that  in our community  i have  seen  people losing  their  life   due to lack  of  good doctors who can  do surgeries  or recommend  good  medication , i want to serve as a community doctor where by i can reach the less fortunate community . people like working in big cities and forget about those who live in remote area , this lead to high death rate in rural areas , i want to save lives in rural areas , i want to help my family and monica's family too , sometimes if i see how we go without food her in nairobi , i work so hard in school , i want to help young girls who have done well in school but cannot go to school , who are being forced to marry , i want to sponsor them so that their life can be changed like mine , i wanted to kill myself when you sponsored me , i want to do the same for girls too"   -Elizabeth Akinyi
