A Unique Take on a Charlotte "mini" session

You've watched all the Bluey episodes and wonder... where in the world do Chili and Bandit get all that fun parent energy?

If you only had 45 minutes to be fully engaged in PLAY, what would you do?

What games would you play? What activities would make you & your kids laugh?

Those 45 minutes of uninterrupted play (no phones) would mean the world to your kiddos... and to you!

And that’s exactly what I want to help give your family during "for real life" photo sessions this spring & summer!

No matching outfits.

No posing.

No forced “perfect” portrait.

Every session looks a little different, but that’s what makes it unique. That’s what makes it yours.

Let's run barefoot through your backyard. Climb trees, blow bubbles, play in the dirt and eat ice cream in the messiest way. Let's fly a kite, play wiffle ball, and run through the sprinkler.

Let's have fun making family photos!

Your experience together as a family is the most important thing, an experience that your children will always say "remember when we..."

The amazing photos you get at the end are the bonus!

Your family deserves more than the same photos everyone else is getting!

Yes, you'll still get a smiling at the camera photo.

YES is the answer to the age old question on if you will get a smiling at the camera photo (just maybe not the pup). This one will happen way more naturally and happily. When your children are having fun and feel at liberty to be their true selves... smiles and cuddles will happen without complaint!

for real life family photos without the stress

Step 1 • Booking

To book you'll sign a contract & pay your session fee {reserves your session on my calendar and all of our planning}.

$200 + tax

Step 2 • Preparing

Once you are booked I will send a welcome guide & a questionnaire that will help us figure out what your family will do during your session.

Sidewalk chalk? Bubbles?

Step 3 • On the Day

Dress like you do everyday, be comfortable. Let your kids pick their clothes. I'll dress comfortable too to get the good shots of play time! All real moments are welcome!

Let's make these memories!

Step 4 • The Fun Part!

Within 2 weeks you'll receive a slideshow of your images and select your images along with any fun prints you'd like!



How much?
$450 +tax: ($200 session fee due at time of booking, remaining balance of $250 to be paid prior to download of images)
What do I get?
30 Digital Images *option to upgrade to all images*
Can we choose the location for our photo shoot?
Absolutely! I believe that the location plays a significant role in capturing unique and personalized photographs. Whether it's at your home, a putt putt course, ice cream shop, or a greenway, these fun sessions are all about you!
How long is the session?
45 minutes! These sessions are for immediate family only as it is enough time to get multiple images of each family member. Extended family sessions & newborn sessions fall under the traditional documentary session pricing.
When will I receive the gallery?
I understand the anticipation of seeing your final photos. You will receive a slideshow with your images within 1 - 2 weeks.
What happens if it rains?
If you're set on having an outdoor session we will reschedule to another date. If it rains and you're up for some fun still, there is so much more we can do inside: forts, watercolors, baking cookies, ice cream, etc. Also, if you're feeling brave... dance in the rain (as long as there is no lightning, lol).
