Motherhood Mini Session is a beautiful, timeless gift
Mamas spend a lot of time curating memories – birthdays, Christmas, 100th day of school, Valentine’s Day, St. Patricks Day, Halloween the list goes on. All on top of the daily requirements to bathe, feed, and teach her children how to be decent humans.
The goal of Motherhood Mini sessions is to slow down and freeze time. Mama and baby, mama and kid, and photograph them together. Forever. Reading a book, tickling, jumping on the bed, dancing, all of it goes in these studio sessions.
A perfect gift for Mother’s Day, I’ll send you a 5×7 gift certificate. We’ll have three set options:
- a white linen bed with macrame hanging
- a vintage pink velvet sofa,
- a clean, studio white back drop with wood floor
Motherhood Mini Session is a beautiful, timeless gift for Mama that won’t gather dust, break, or ultimate land in the trash! Am I the only one that thinks like that?!
Mini sessions happen roughly once a quarter, and for Q2 is the first ever in studio Motherhood Mini Sessions. Rain or shine, no matter the weather, we’ll be indoors and it won’t matter! What freedom!

Mommy and me mini sessions is a beautiful gift for any mom, but especially for moms of littles. There’s just something about those years from 1-5 while they’re still cuddly that is like nothing else.

How to Book Your Mini Session
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.
Hi, I’m Alison, your chaos coordinator.
As the ringleader of my own 4 boy circus, I know how hard getting family photos can be.
If I could dress your kids and literally hang your family photos on your walls, I would.
…but I can’t, so I do just about everything else in between.
That’s why I take the time to hold your hand from start to finish.
Because what good are family photos if your kids never see them?
Our active duty USMC family is currently stationed in Virginia Beach near Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Hampton in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. I call Charleston SC home and go back as often as I can! I shoot families and weddings as travel permits. Check out more of my work in Charleston here.

After 11 years of photographing families all over the world, I've realized my clients aren't printing their images. We go through all this work to get dressed, coordinated and then let those photos die on the hard drive.
There's nothing easy about family photos but I'm here to help you with every step from what to wear to printed in your hands whether thats an album or wall art. I want you to Make your people the rock star of your house!
You'll be reminded of what really matters every day when you see the giant prints of your crew laughing on your walls every. single. day.
Currently stationed in Virginia Beach, Virginia photographing families all over the Hampton Roads area from Suffolk, Norfolk, Chesapeake and the Eastern Shore all the way to Portsmouth and Elizabeth City!
