Valentine Mini Sessions, & Downtown Oxford's Snowball Crawl!

Valentine's Day Sweet Shop Mini Sessions

For 15 minutes let your little sweetie(s) make big messes and just be little!
We have lots of fun cooking props to play with & we even have a chef hat and apron!
Feel free to let them bring their favorite cooking items from home! (Even from their toy kitchen.)
Another great idea is to spend the evening before baking a batch of cookies or cupcakes together and bring them to your session to show off their work! Don't forget you can join in for a picture or two as well to show them how this baking thing is done!

Add 15 personalized Valentines for only $20! 

*Any additional products will be 50% off normal pricing!

Downtown Oxford's Snowball Crawl

Lydia Crouse Photography will be hosting our annual Valentine mini sessions all day and also during Downtown Oxford's Snowball Crawl. 

If you do not wish to participate in the mini session but would like to have a chance in the snowball crawl, we will be offering all of our products for sale in which you can use a photo from a past session with us, or a photo you have taken yourself! As usual gift certificates are also available for purchase.

Historic Downtown Snowball Crawl
Friday, February 2nd 4-7pm
How it works:
Look for the “snowball crawl” decal on the door of participating Downtown Oxford businesses. Each business will have a canister of numbered “snowballs” to draw for that nights “in-store offer”. One “snowball” in each container, will offer an in-store grand prize. Each guest can draw one “snowball “per visit. 
How to enter for Snowball Crawl drawing: 
Pick up a “snowball” pass with the first downtown purchase. Carry pass throughout downtown as you shop and with each purchase the pass will be punched and initialed. Once the pass has proof of 3 purchases, bring the completed snowball pass to Uptown 101 to enter into the drawing. 
Snowball passes will be collected until 6:50. The downtown certificate drawing will happen promptly at 7:00pm at Uptown 101. You do not have to be present to win. The snowball certificate will be valid through February 17th, 2018. Certificate can be used at any “snowball crawl” participating downtown business. The certificate can be used for multiple downtown purchases but must be used in its entirety. NO CASH WILL BE GIVEN FOR ANY PORTION OF THE CERTIFICATE VALUE OR UNUSED PORTIONS.
