        2022 Mini Session Photography | Virginia Beach

        Fast. Fun. Done.

        You don’t need a full session. Just a quick family update.

        Enter the 15 minute mini session.

        Wait, wait, wait. Only 15 minutes? YES.

        The truth is, if we can’t get it in 15 minutes, it’s just not going to happen at all. It’s not magic, just skills.

        I’ve had criers, cake smashes and even a family of 9 (yes! 7 kids ages 3 months – 12 years) in 15 minutes!

        Want more time? Book two minis back to back! Yep, 100% allowed.

        Motherhood In Studio Mini Sessions

        May 21, 2022 | 9-11am

        Mamas spend a lot of time curating memories – birthdays, Christmas, 100th day of school, Valentine’s Day, St. Patricks Day, Halloween the list goes on. All on top of the daily requirements to bathe, feed, and teach her children how to be decent humans.

        The goal of Motherhood Mini sessions is slow down and freeze time. Mama and baby, mama and kid, and photograph them together. Forever.

        Reading a book, tickling, jumping on the bed, dancing, all of it goes in these studio sessions.

        A perfect gift for Mother’s Day, I’ll send you a 5×7 gift certificate. We’ll have three set options: a white linen bed with macrame hanging, a vintage pink velvet sofa, or a clean, studio white back drop with floor.

        No weather concerns. No outdoor lighting contingencies. All indoors and under control!

        Spring 2022: Cherry Blossom Mini Sessions

        Virginia Beach Cherry Blossoms

        Virginia Beach Cherry Blossom Mini sessions happened March 27-30th.

        Jump on the waitlist for next year’s cherry blossoms!

        I watch the DC Blossom watch Instagram account, and Hampton Roads trees bloom a full week earlier. The 2021 VA Beach minis were April 3.

        DC “Cherry Blossom” on Quantico MCB:


        All saucer magnolias from VA beach north are ruined for 2022. Check out the write up by the National Park Service in DC for details.

        Just before the northern Virginia cherries bloom, the Japanese magnolia trees open with bigger, bolder color. There is one particular tree on MCB Quantico with a cascading white dogwood behind one of these magnolias that I love!

        I travel to Quantico just for this tree – and to see all my USMC friends!
