seasonal mini sessions


I'm Charity, a portrait photographer based in Aurora, IL. My petite photo sessions help busy families document the most important milestones and seasons in a convenient way, without compromising the luxury quality I stand by. 

What is a mini session? It's a fast and fun photoshoot done in around 20 minutes, saving you precious time, ensuring little ones stay engaged, and offering an economical way to preserve your valuable memories.

Your needs first.
 You'll get detailed styling guidance from me, the ability to choose your favorite images, and stunning options to enjoy them outside of the digital cloud. You deserve the best! If you want an amazing experience, and a (hopeful) new friend, I'm your girl.

Physical products. Do you struggle each year to find time to actually print or frame your photos? Not anymore. Every session with me ensures includes you have premium keepsake products ready to display in your home and preserve for life. Scroll down to get started!

The initial mini session fee includes 3 images of your choice. Collection upgrades and a la carte options are available 


Depending on the mini session location, you will either order right on site afterward, or through an online gallery. I help make it easy and convenient.

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.
