Fall Mini Portrait sessions are back!

Welcome friends and families, old and new! I cannot believe it is Fall already! How in the world did this happen?!?!?! It feels like only moments have passed since I was shooting you all last Fall, pregnant and emotional, envisioning what it would be like to be on the other side of the camera sometime soon with my own little tribe. I had so much fun with everyone last year and I look forward to creating more beautiful images for you to enjoy for a lifetime. It would be remiss of me not to remind you to print these beauties as soon as I deliver them to you. Even if you decide to print on your own from Costco or Target…print them. Take some time to choose a beautiful frame, clear a nice place in your home and display your images. It will brighten your space and will make your heart full, I promise. And if you can’t carve out the time to get that done, set one of your Holiday cards aside and frame that bad boy.

I have added three more dates and three additional locations this year after receiving some much appreciated feedback about catering to different locations in the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas. I hope that I have done a good job in covering more ground this year and I look forward to meeting some people who were unable to get into my sessions last year. If you missed my sessions last year, I have added extra dates and locations for you! Once again, I have several of my families from previous years booked and I am so looking forward to seeing how all the little ones are growing and changing!

Single parents, couples without kids, empty nesters, bloggers who need content updates… these mini sessions are for you too! You do not have to have a family or even be in a relationship to book a session. Do not let a silly status deter you from gifting yourself a portrait update. Like I’ve said before, everyone deserves beautiful portraits and this is a really affordable and convenient way to do it. Please enjoy some of my favorite images from last year’s mini sessions and continue to read below for session details and locations. 

My mini sessions are designed for families of 6 people* or less and are 20 minutes in duration. The session fee is $200 with a $100 non-refundable deposit due upon reserving your session time slot. This will be a very condensed version of my full portrait session and you will receive 8 beautifully retouched digital high resolution images on a photo sharing gallery. You will have the option of buying prints and products as well as additional images from the session if you so choose.

I will be doing another blog post on session styling in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for that if you need a little direction in that area.

I look forward to capturing some new faces and reuniting with some of my favorite families!
