What are mini sessions?

Minis are fast & easy portrait sessions for folks who typically need a creative—yet a bit more posed—image or two. These are small collections designed for people who "just want a good one" of themselves or the fam.

Popular reasons to book a mini session include:


You and who you love...just because


Family holiday card

Updated headshot

Halloween costumes


Mini session FAQ

Will you come to my house for a mini session?

Minis are short--only 15 mins--and many sessions are done back-to-back in the same evening. For this reason, I will choose the location ahead of time and you meet me there! It's kinda the point of the big discount on images ;)

Do I get to choose my favorites?

Yes! About 2-3 weeks after the session, you'll get an online gallery where you can choose your 10 favorites that are included. If you'd like more than 10, images are $15/ea.

What if I need a new headshot now and can't wait for the next mini announcement?

Send me a note!

I offer "on-demand" minis, still at a location of my choosing, for an additional $150.

Can I bring my extended family?

Yes and no.


A single mini session is only 15 minutes, so no more than 6 people at a time is encouraged.

BUT, you can book two sessions back-to-back for more than 6 people (or just more time), & that's okay with me!


Limit 12-ish.

Story Sessions

Minis are quick, but maybe you're looking for more authentic candids, movement, and emotion.


There is so much beauty and emotion in the fleeting moments and tiny details. It's where real candids are found...and where the magic lives.
