Holiday Mini Sessions - Now Booking!

Last year, Holiday Mini Sessions were a hit - so it only makes sense that I bring it back - keeping it minimalistic, clean, and elegant. Holiday Mini Sessions are a great way to capture your family's milestones......and let's not forget about the gift of giving.

These sessions aren't just for those with children - turn it into a couples, engagement, maternity, or even a siblings session. Pets are welcomed as well. The setup you see here, with the loveseat, wreath, and glossy flooring in front of my curtained windows, is what we'll be working with. You'll be able to match so many great style options with this!


  • Cost: $250 ($150 initial payment due to reserve your session)

  • Dates: Saturday, December 4 and Sunday December 5, 2021
