Upcoming Seasonal Mini Session Dates & Times Are Live!

I've had a few inquires for November mini sessions, so I already made the schedule! Hopefully covid won't mess us up this year, but know that I'll be scheduling each family with extra time in between, everything will be outside, I'll sanitize any props I use and I won't reuse any quilts or blankets between clients. All of the mini session ideas, dates, available times and pricing are below. If you would like to book a time slot, or if you have questions, just click here to send me an email!


Christmas Tree Farm: Tree farm minis will be back this year and I've already booked my day at the tree farm! I have a chippy green rocking chair I'll be bringing, since the wood can be wiped down easily with sanitizing wipes (the antique red chair has been retired for outdoor use!). I'll be bringing my Christmas quilt collection for if another sitting pose option is desired, but again, each family won't be using the same quilts since they can't be sanitized until I wash them.


The date for the tree farm will be November 6th and the last available time slot is 5:00.

(SOLD OUT!) Non seasonal themed sessions at a Suffolk farm: You may already be familiar with my friend's farm in Suffolk that has the red barns and old trees. I've used the location for Fall sessions before and I've also dressed it up with props to make it a Christmas theme, too. But, the best images from that location are of the families making it whatever theme they want with their outfit choices. The popular mustard color for Fall looks good with the brick red barns and greens also work in contrast with the red, which give it a Christmas look. Other color choices work to make it a non-theme, especially since there are other grassy areas with old trees. This location is perfect for whatever you want to make it!


Thank you for booking this mini session marathon!

Fall sessions will be at a Newport News location and at a Poquoson location, on different dates of course (11/14 and 11/28). If you're new here, yes I do Christmas before Fall! It's because the trees are usually more Fall looking after the second week in November. :)


-Fall in Newport News will be November 14th and the last available time slot is 3:15.

*All HBP mini sessions are around 15 minutes of shooting time and 15 edited images are included in a high resolution download to your computer (low res also available for online use). Duplicates in black and white are included as well, for more choices. The total cost is $250. An online contract and $50 of the total is due at booking, then the rest is due on the day of the session. Please note, mini session marathon sessions like this are typically reserved for immediate families. I say my cap is 5 people, including kids, but I do understand that some of y'all have a big immediate family. :)


*These mini sessions are the last of my availability for 2021. Thank you to all of my amazing clients!
