Summer Mini-session Opportunities for June

June is one of my favorite months because it signals the end of the school year and the beginning of lazy summer days.  Sleeping in, picnics out in the yard, bike rides, and catching fireflies.  Even my teens still have fun catching fireflies. 😁

It’s also time for my first round of summer mini-sessions!

About Mini-sessions

Mini-sessions are 20-minute sessions for a single child or the whole family.  Locations are pre-determined depending on the style of the session or what areas are available.  I have a variety of favorite spots in the North Hills as well as downtown and often, I can be flexible.

Even with a shorter session, it doesn’t mean there is pressure or that you will be rushed through.  With my mini-sessions, you can expect to receive the same kind of care to create gorgeous images of your family that you’ll love- there are just fewer images in that final gallery.  It’s a perfect option for updating your family portraits.

After the session, mini-session clients choose to purchase one of three collections and then enjoy immediately choosing and downloading their favorite images.   I try to keep this whole process simple and easy.

Certain themed mini sessions are only offered at certain times of the year.  Sign up for my email list to get notified of my mini-session events! (the link is at the bottom of this page)

Summer Mini-sessions – June

Seniors & Grads

Do you have a graduate and no pictures?  Don’t worry!  Sign your graduate up for a June Mini to get those milestone images!  Bring your cap and gown and we can include those as well!

Or do you have a rising senior who is ready to get their senior portraits done without investing a ton of time?  We can schedule a mini and check that item off your to-do list.

White daisies and pink crown vetch and dame’s rocket!  Wildflowers of Western Pennsylvania is my one of my favorite Facebook follows to get information on all the different plants when I’m out taking pictures!

The hills are full of wildflowers but they won’t last long!

Sign-up for a wildflower mini session!  These sessions are perfect for little ones.  Locations are in the North Hills!

Summer Princesses

My princess mini-sessions are always so much fun!  Bring your own princess dress or borrow one of my special dresses and flower crowns and be ready to dance and twirl!  These are so much fun and can be scheduled at a park or downtown for something fancier!  Dresses are available to fit toddlers up to teens!
