Christmas Mini Sessions are Booking Now!

This is the Christmas mini session that has the faux barn wall and the wooded area as the backdrop, in a Poquoson location. I'll have a green vintage couch this time around!

I will set up Christmas trees so there will be 2 background views, as seen in the first 3 images below. I want the trees and vintage couch in front of the wooded area and I'd like to keep the barn view simple with maybe just the sled and the trees peeking through the foreground. Lastly, I will have some sort of fake snow again this year because it was such a hit last year! I'll have the willing participants (lol) throw faux snow in a few photos and then I'll winterize those images for your gallery, as seen in the 4th and 5th photos below.

*The sample photos were taken in August and by November, the trees in the wooded area will be mostly bare. BUT I only set up 1/3 of the amount of Christmas trees for the photos below. I'll be setting up ALL of the trees I have in my shed for the mini sessions to make sure there's plenty of green behind the couch!

Photos, dates and time slots can be found below. Any time slot taken will have a strikethrough and I'll keep it updated as best as I can. :)

New to HBP mini sessions? Welcome! HBP minis are15-20 minute sessions that include at least 15 fully edited images in color, plus the same amount of matching black and whites. All of the fully edited, full resolution images will be delivered to your email in a password protected gallery, ready for you to download. *Minis are best suited for immediate family/under 6 people please!

All of my collections are digitally all inclusive. This means there will not be any extra charge to download your full resolution, digital images! Shooting time, editing time and traveling time, to the mini session location are also built into the cost. I accept checks, cash, or I can send an online checkout link, via square. All cash or check payments can subtract $10 from the final balance. ​

The cost for minis is $260. To secure your spot on my calendar, $60 of the session fee and an online contract are required when booking. The rest is due on the day of the session. You will have the option to purchase professional prints separately, after receiving your gallery. You will get a print release, too, if you choose not to have your prints professionally printed.

why mini sessions?

Minis seem to work for my clients and I

Mini sessions are a great way to get quick family portraits in time for Christmas cards and gifts. In the Fall and winter, the sun sets before my clients get off work and it's hard to match their availability with mine. Meeting with multiple families in one afternoon on weekends through the Fall makes family portraits possible for more of my amazing clients!
