sessions for Fall!

Pumpkin Spice, crisp air, and AWESOME PHOTOS are right around the corner!


YA'LL. this is seriously my favorite time of the year! I'm looking forward to taking family pictures this Fall, and I am sure y'all are too! This season is very busy for us at the studio, so we have limited availability to book. Starting today we will be taking deposits to book your outdoor portraits or studio portraits. We have many weddings this season so it will be first come first serve on the weekend schedule. We do have much more flexibility during the day and weekday evenings.

After you make your deposit, we now offer an even more personable experience where we will be speaking with you about planning your session and deciding what is most important to you for your session. We also offer unique products you will not find anywhere else! (Think about it, we can get your Christmas shopping done BEFORE December!) Some of our Christmas cards turn into Christmas ornaments too! We would love for you to meet and talk with us in the studio the upcoming weeks but if not e-mailed or phone consultations will work as well. Gift Certificates are also available for purchase.

We look forward to seeing you!

The LCP Team 📸


This year Lydia Crouse photography has decided to switch it up a little bit! In September, we will be having a senior week! During this week all who are interested and apply can choose one or multiple locations to where they will get a free Outfit and inspiration consultation, a mini photo session, a makeover with the amazing Suzanne with Skinsation, and 3 low resolution digital images to share on social media. This is no obligation with no Kickbacks to us, we just want to try something fun and see how you guys like it! However; Parents, if you are interested we will have these sessions available for viewing and product purchase. 

Each day we will be at a new location, a farm in the country, urban downtown Oxford, or the elegant and rustic Thorndale Oaks.

The last day we will have a friends and family day. At Lydia Crouse photography we love to snap a few pictures with your family or best friends at the end of every senior session.

If you are interested please fill out our questionnaire in the link below!

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!

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.
