        Motherhood Mini Session is a beautiful, timeless gift

        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 to 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,
        • a clean, studio white back drop with wood floor

        Motherhood Mini Session is a beautiful, timeless gift for Mama that won’t gather dust, break, or ultimate land in the trash! Am I the only one that thinks like that?!

        Mini sessions happen roughly once a quarter, and for Q2 is the first ever in studio Motherhood Mini Sessions. Rain or shine, no matter the weather, we’ll be indoors and it won’t matter! What freedom!

        Motherhood Minis Details

        These mini sessions will happen the morning of Sunday May 21 between 9-11am at a studio in the Blackwater area of Virginia Beach (exact location given at booking), but plan for it to be a haul! Its almost to North Carolina

        What’s included:

        • 5×7 custom printable gift certificate (I’ll send a link for you to customize if you wish!)
        • Wardrobe help
        • 15 minutes shoot time
        • 3 Sets to choose from: boho bed, pink velvet couch, studio wood floor & white drop

        • Option to upgrade after gallery is delivered

        Limitations:

        Being in a studio, we are confined to a limited number of people. This is not a hard and fast rule as ages and sizes of your children. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! We are capping it to four kids per family.

        Gifting a Mini Session

        Mommy and me mini sessions is a beautiful gift for any mom, but especially for moms of littles. There’s just something about those years from 1-5 while they’re still cuddly that is like nothing else.

        If this is a gift, email me at any point before or after booking and I’ll send you a gift certificate to print, frame and wrap. It can be printed at any copy shop in a full color printer of any sort. Trim, frame and you’re all set!

        Mini sessions are 15-20 minute sessions

        More time does not equal more value because more time never made anyone cry less, or have more fun! Weather your kids are grown and cooperative, or super young and uncooperative, its perfect for simple updated family photos, cake smash, maternity, high school seniors, milestones, or Christmas card shots!

        Yes! 15 minutes is enough!

        More time is not more value. My mission is to leave you asking, “That’s it?!”

        Fast. Fun. Done.

        Dad is going to be pleased and you’re going to be shocked I got so many happy faces so quickly!

        They happen at pre-determined dates and locations.

        Hi I’m Alison, your chaos coordinator.

        As the ringleader of my own 4 boy circus, I know how hard getting family photos can be.

        If I could dress your kids and literally hang your family photos on your walls, I would.

        …but I can’t, so I do just about everything else in between.

        That’s why I take the time to hold your hand from start to finish.

        Because what good are family photos if your kids never see them?

        Our active duty USMC family is currently stationed in Virginia Beach near Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Hampton in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. I call Charleston SC home and go back as often as I can! I shoot families and weddings as travel permits. Check out more of my work in Charleston here.
