These are incredibly popular and book up first! $250 retainer includes 30 minutes of mini-session time at the following times/locations only. You get an edited gallery of approximately 15 images, which will be yours to download and enjoy and print on your own (up to an 11×14 size), within two weeks of your session date.

Although, you can always check to see if anything has opened when you email me. I always recommend a back update and time just in case!


Holiday Full Session Special

This year, I would love to tell your family’s story in a new way! This year, a Saturday session set up in your home November 24th  & I have three special packages.

This could be a great way to document how your family celebrates the holidays! Whether you are putting the finishing touches on your Christmas tree, making holiday cookies together, celebrating baby’s first Christmas, or maybe you just want to wear matching family jammies in the comfort of your own home for the holidays, why not let me document you in your space? This is also perfect for families who children take more time to warm up, or are more confident in their home surroundings. This can also be totally non-holiday themed. If you are looking to do any outdoor photos, you must specify that at booking to ensure the best time for your home.

There will be no more than three sessions each day, first come, first served. The discounted packages are detailed below. All other items may be purchased a la carte. Half of the retainer is due at booking, with the final payment due two weeks before your session date.


Package One – the Stocking Stuffer – 45 minutes on location, thirty edited images, you pick your favorite ten images to download as digital negatives, $350.


Package Two – Joy to the World – one hour on location, thirty edited images, you pick your favorite ten images to download as digital negatives and three linen cover mini-accordion brag book albums, $400 plus tax.


Package Three – Santa’s Sleigh, one hour on location, thirty edited images, download your entire digital gallery with personal printing rights, one 20×30 canvas, $500 plus tax.





For our Tampa holiday mini sessions 2018, as always, I recommend mini-sessions for those whose children don’t take long to warm up.  Newborn babies at mini-sessions is also a bit tough as they sometimes can have unpredictable sleep and feeding schedule. No pets please, as I find they often need more time and care and do better in the full session environment. The Tampa holiday mini sessions are also for one family unit at a time. Please, no extended families or additional generations. If you have questions about that, please don’t hesitate to ask!  Payment in full is due at booking to secure your spot, except teh full session specials, those are broken into two equal payments. The first payment at booking & the second payment two weeks before the session date. If payment has not be received and bookings are not completed within the two day window, your time slot will automatically be opened to the next in line. Also, the sessions are going to focus on family pictures first. If time allows, we can try to do individual portraits and siblings. However, the majority of the limited time frame will be spent on family connections first and foremost. If you want more groupings and time, please contact me for full family session pricing or check out these very limited in-home options below.
