Local Photographer Serves Ice Cream Truck Mini Sessions

[slideshow_deploy id=’69822′]

The sound of an ice cream truck signals the start of summer. Even if the truck’s music is monotonous and off-tune, it can make you feel nostalgic; however, there is nothing off-tune or monotonous about the mini photo sessions offered by Lyndsey Ropers Photography.

Colusa Resident, Lyndsey Ropers recently began dabbling in the photography field – paving her way into a specialized niche.

“I am in it for the fun of it,” said Ropers, “Photography has become a passion of mine.”

Ropers and her firefighter husband, Matt, started off helping a friend setup photography shoots with props and custom built items.

“I used to style the sets for Nikki Hancock,” said Ropers, “I had a lot of fun and learned a lot.”

Ropers picked up her first Camera and began to take countless online photography courses, and learned by trial and error.

“I have three children, so my schedule is pretty hectic,” said Ropers, “photography isn’t easy, it is not point-and-shoot, I have put countless of hours, and poured my heart into my new career.”

Ropers started her mini sessions last year during Halloween, which was a great success.

“I learned a lot and had a lot of fun,” said Ropers.

With spring well on its way, Ropers will be offering a special mini-session treat – come the end of April.

Transforming the infamous Colusa floaters van, known for its outrageous not-so family-friendly history, into a childhood reminiscence of a 1950’s, minty, Ice Cream truck.

“I would drive by the van out on highway 45 and I knew I’ve always wanted to do something with it,” said Ropers, “then one day I the idea came to me to do an Ice Cream Truck mini shoot.”

With a few gallons of paint and some elbow grease, Ropers’ husband painted the truck in just a few hours.

“There was a lot of history on that van,” Ropers commented, “lots of layers of paint.”

The scene couldn’t be set more perfect, as the entire mini shoot will take place out at the Davis Ranch house out on Sycamore Slough, just outside of Colusa on Highway 45.

“It’s a beautiful building and going to be a great backdrop,” said Ropers.

In the photography industry, mini shoots are named for their short sitting sessions – most ranging from 15 minutes to half an hour; however, there isn’t anything small about Ropers’ mini sessions.

Every detail is meticulously placed, and every shoot is staged perfectly – even down to the edible treats.

“Two Chicks Creations Sweets and Coffee in Arbuckle provided some of the props for the photo shoot,” said Ropers, “They are very talented women and did an excellent job.”

At the time of press, Ropers’ first mini session is booked; however, she is accepting time slots for Saturday, May 2, 2015.

“The sessions start at 11:00 am, and every 30 minutes until 6:00 pm,” said Ropers, “Each family is $75. That includes 15 minutes, 5 high-resolution digital images on a disc, as well as all of the images that I take that day of your family.”

Ropers also commented that she requires a $35 non-refundable deposit at the time of booking, and $40 will be due at the time of your session.

Don’t wait to get a chance at this sweet deal and book your appointments early by contacting Lyndsey at (714) 614-4119 or email

In addition to her mini sessions, Ropers also does newborn photos, maternity photos, and family portraits.

“I love taking photos of children,” said Ropers, “children photography is my specialty.”
