Lite Sessions


Lite portrait sessions are exclusive, one-day events that help busy families document your story throughout spring and fall seasons. Lite sessions offer a short and sweet experience with the same luxury quality I stand by. Availability is highly limited.

Not your average mini session, expect to enjoy a personal, elevated experience. I help every step of the way with planning tips, a detailed style guide, the ability to choose your favorite images, and stunning premium prints to enjoy them outside of the digital cloud. Scroll down to get started with documenting your story!

The initial session fee includes three images of your choice selected in a follow up meeting. Collection upgrades and a la carte is available.


Depending on the session, you will either order right on site afterward, or on a video meeting with me. I help you make decisions and walk through it all!

How do I choose my images after the session?

Only if you want to! You can wait to decide until the selection process after the session, and only order what you love.

Do I have to choose an upgraded collection?

Typically only the images you choose and purchase will be backed up and stored. I recommend you choose every photo you love so they don't get left behind!

Can I purchase more images at a later time in the future?

Choosing the perfect outfits for your photos can be stressful. You'll get detailed style guidance from me so you can be prepared and confident.

What should we wear or not wear to our session?

Available for fall and Christmas season, choose from a few curated, modern designs to share with family and friends. See designs here.
