Meet me at the beach for summer minis! You'll have the option to add on film and/or black and white copies to your gallery. We'll be at my all-time fav Seattle summer spot; Golden Gardens beach. I've got some morning slots to take advantage of the lower crowds (and happier babies). We can kick off shoes and get sandy toes, splash around with your babies, nestle in the gorgeous beach grass... Most importantly let's capitalize on our gorgeous and fleeting seattle Summer for some updated images you will cherish!

PERFECT FOR:

Young children and babies, expecting mamas, couples, or even a short headshot session! All are welcome.

frequestly asked questions

Each session comes with a full gallery of photos from which you get 40 free downloads, with the option to purchase additional photos if you have more than 40 favorites!

how many images come with a session?

what is the turnaround time for getting the photos?

Galleries get sent out two weeks after sessions.

My approach to minis (and all my family work really!) is very laid back. I want to get the images we are after organically. I do this by keeping the kids happy, letting them lead when we can by letting them explore their surroundings and having parents initiate games with them. In my experience, the more commands we throw at the kids the more flustered they get and become upset, so I try to keep a chill, easy going vibe and keep playing at the forefront. I also have plenty of silly phrases and goofiness in my back pocket to get those natural smiles out too ;)

my kids are wild! how will we get them to pose for pictures?!

I have a designated make-up day; please keep this day free in case you need to move your session. Beyond this make-up option, you'll either have the option to participate in the next round of minis or put your deposit towards a regular session where you can select the time and location of your choice. Because of the limited number of spots, deposits are non-refundable. The fee to reschedule is $40.

how does rescheduling work if we can't make our session?

If we get unlucky with heavy rain or poor AQI on our shoot days, I'll do my best to reschedule everyone to a nearby date and accommodate for each client's availability. If the forecast calls for light or scattered showers, I will usually try to move forward with sessions, but will make the final call the evening before or morning of the shoots.
