Let's chat about how we can capture the genuine moments with your family!

Virginia Beach Mini Sessions are here for Fall and Christmas!!

Did you know that that September to December is the busiest time for photographers? Without a doubt, it is! Families are looking to update their family pictures and get the perfect image for a Christmas card to send to their family and friends.

Although this is a good thing, it often means that we get booked out pretty quickly! This is why there is a solution for you: MINI SESSIONS!

Mini sessions are perfect for busy families. They are quick and you are able to get beautiful images without having to break the bank.

1. How do you book a mini session?

First find a photographer that matches the style that you are wanting. Personally, I do two locations for my mini sessions: the beach or an open field here in Virginia Beach, Virginia!

Make sure the date and time works well for you. The later part of the year is filled with back-to-school and holiday things! Picking a time that fits your availability is huge. Some other things to factor in is time changes, the sun sets a lot earlier as you get later into the fall.

If you have children, make sure that the photography know how to specifically photography kids! I don’t think there is anything worse then getting the pictures back of your kids and they are terrible! Are you a fan of pictures showcasing playful games or posed candids? Make sure you pick a photographer that matches this! Personally, I like to do both, but I love those fun candid moments!

2. What do you do after you book a mini session?

It is time to plan your outfits! I tend to suggest staying away from reds since they can cast some red shadows on the face, and no one wants their skit to look red! I love when families gravitate more towards blues, creams and greens during their Christmas cards!

Make sure the family is prepared. Talk to your kids about the session and what to expect. Sessions go so much better when the parents have taken time before to talk with their children!

If you want to bring fur babies, let the photographer know! Most of the time, they are okay with it, but it is always important to let them know what to plan on going into it!

I always encourage the fur babies to come, they are part of the family too!

Talk to your photographer to see when you should expect the images back. I tend to make sure my families have their images within 2-3 weeks after the shoot.
