Mini sessions


Raise your hand if you have children, literally any age, who are a DREAM to take photos with.

No takers?? Didn't think so. I love my 3 year old, but taking family photos with him makes me want to crawl in to my closet with some cookie dough and sulk. It's nearly impossible to get him to hang out for an hour, look at the camera, and say cheese.

Most kids (and husbands:) have a time limit of about 15 minutes. I  always get the best smiles and moments at the beginning of my family sessions, so why draw it out??

With my mini sessions you get to take 15 quick minutes and get the best photos, without making it a hard experience. Since they are easy (and, bonus, more afforable) you can even handle doing multiple in a year so that you can record your family as they grow up. 

I always use my tried and true locations that are AMAZING, choose times with light (and traffic, honestly) in mind to make it a fun experience all around. All you need to do to claim your spot is fill out the form at the bottom of this page and let me know which date/time you want and I'll take care of the rest!!
