Last Mini Session of 2020

Final Mini sessions at East Beach, Norfolk

These almost didn’t happen. I actually all but cancelled it two weeks out because it was set for the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Our travel plans had waffled back and forth in true 2020 style, and at one point I was going to be out of town this day!

But I got to chatting with these fine ladies at church and they immediately were on board! I mean like right then and there, no deliberating. You know how exciting and invigorating that is for me?! SO. EXCITING!

  1. The beach
  2. 2 Families
  3. Lots of small kids

This is my jam!

Now late November on the beach is pretty chilly. But being on the bay, there was less wind to contend with. While the mamas were cold and took one for the team, all the kids were only mildly chilly with the way I had them running.

You can’t tell at all this is as the fall can you?! One of my favorite things about the beach!

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.

Mini sessions happen roughly once a quarter, sometimes more often in the busy seasons.
