Have you ever wondered why "mini-sessions" are so popular these days?

If you're looking to get some professional photos taken but don't have a lot of time or money to spare, Mini Sessions might be just what you need! These sessions are usually set up on a specific day, time, and location, and they're shorter than full-length photo shoots. They're perfect for capturing special moments like family portraits, engagement photos, or even just some nice headshots. Choosing a Mini Session can help you save time and money without compromising the quality of your photos.

I absolutely love mini-sessions! They give me the chance to work with so many different types of people, which is always so much fun. While I adore capturing moments at weddings and engagements, mini-sessions help me broaden my horizons. Plus, I get to make even more connections and create beautiful memories for my clients. It's always an exciting adventure!

If you have young children, you know how challenging it can be to keep them entertained and engaged during a photo session. That's where mini-sessions come in! These shorter photo sessions are the perfect solution for kids with shorter attention spans, allowing you to capture beautiful family photos without the risk of a meltdown. In just 20 minutes, I'll provide you with a stunning gallery of photos that you can cherish for years to come. As someone who has worked with plenty of little ones, I know they can be unpredictable and sometimes too tired to smile for the camera. That's why it's important to go with the flow and make adjustments as needed. With mini-sessions, you can still capture those special moments without putting too much pressure on your children to behave for a full hour.


If you're a busy family looking for a quick and easy way to update your family portraits, mini-sessions are the way to go! There's no need to search for locations or schedule dates and times. I've done all the hard work for you! I hold mini-sessions twice yearly in places I often photograph, so you can trust they will look great! Best yet, all of my mini-session dates and times have been predetermined. You only need to pick what time works best for you and your family, and I'll take care of the rest! 


Are you thinking of adding some personal flair to your home decor with a gallery wall showcasing your loved ones? But maybe you're worried that a full family portrait session is too time-consuming or exhausting. Fear not; there's a solution: Mini-Sessions! These sessions are shorter but still offer a wide range of poses and backgrounds to choose from, so you can create your ideal gallery wall. Plus, Mini-Sessions are perfect for getting that updated holiday or greeting card photo of your family. With Mini-Sessions, you can have stunning and personalized family photos without the hassle of a full session.
