Fall Mini Sessions are Booking Now!


Fall will be approaching before we know it, so here I am with availability for all of the Fall sessions that I offer!


It may seem like I have a lot of minis going on, but usually some dates book up fast, while others are overlooked completely. By September, any dates or themes that don't receive any interest will be deleted and the date will either become available on my calendar, or used as a rain date instead. If one date books all of the time slots, I will create earlier times if I'm able to.


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. :)

Fall minis in Yorktown

These are the minis in the grass that I typically shoot in the Fall, but they don't exactly have a Fall theme. Please keep in mind that sometimes the grass is tall, but then the very next day it could be freshly cut.

New to HBP mini sessions? Welcome! HBP minis are 15-20 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 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. If you have questions, want to book with me, or if you just want to chat, please click her​e or click the contact page on the menu above and send me an email!

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!
