Fall Mini Sessions in Dallas and NYC

I am thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity to take your photo with me this fall. Due to an overwhelming request, I am hosting photography mini-sessions in Dallas and New York City. This year, I am bringing you the chance to capture precious moments in two iconic cities, ensuring you get a professional photo taken at least once this year.

While I rarely do mini-sessions because I enjoy letting my couples and families get comfortable in front of the camera and slowly relax in front of the lens. However I had so many requests for mini-sessions this year, so I am happy to be able to capture all of my favorite families and couples this year!

As a Dallas photographer, I am offering two options to suit your vision and budget. The first option is a Dallas staple with mini sessions at White Rock Lake in East Dallas. Mini-sessions are perfect for the family or couple looking to get pictures out in nature. The second option is a luxury studio session at The Lumen Room, with professional floral arrangements by Bad and Blooming. This mini session is perfect for families and couples and anyone who owns a business needs updated headshots. Even an expecting mother for maternity pictures among the flowers.

Although I am based in Dallas, I did not forget about my NYC friends. Finally, I will head to NYC to capture mini-sessions on two dates. One session is at the timeless NYC location Prospect Park; the other is a luxury Brooklyn studio space complete with florals by Long Weekend Florals.

Should you opt for a mini-session vs a full session ?

1. Firstly, the holiday season is right around the corner, and what better way to spread joy than with stunning photographs? My fall mini-sessions are perfect for those seeking a handful of images for their holiday cards or thoughtful, personalized gifts. Whether a heartwarming family portrait or a new baby announcement, my mini-sessions provide the right time to capture your joy.

2. As a mom of two boys, I understand that young ones can sometimes have a limited attention span. Mini-sessions offer a fantastic solution if you’re worried your little bundles of energy will hold up during a full-hour session. With their shorter duration, these sessions are ideal for capturing genuine expressions and candid moments before anyone gets too restless. I’ll work my magic swiftly, ensuring we get a good shot that your loved ones will enjoy for years.

3. Whether you’re planning a romantic autumn wedding or want to capture your engagement bliss, mini-sessions are a fabulous opportunity to get that perfect picture for your wedding and save the date. This is a great, cost-effective way of capturing save-the-date images if you are not planning on doing a full engagement session.

Mini-sessions are the budget friendly option for photography

4. Everyone should have the chance to experience the magic of professional photography. Because of this current climate fall mini-sessions are for those who want professional photos this year on a budget. Finally, I understand that professional photos are not something everyone can make happen yearly, so by offering these mini-sessions, you will experience a professional session without breaking the bank.
