Mini Sessions

Mini sessions are a short and sweet way to get your family in front of the camera. We've found that 15 minutes is the perfect amount of time to keep a child's attention engaged so that you can have updated pictures of everyone together. Mini sessions are also great for pregnancy announcement, maternity session, and anniversary pictures.

Our mini sessions are only available on a limited number of dates throughout the year. Exact location will be determined based on the weather and communicated to participants the week of the session.

Our email list gets first dibs on available session dates. Join the list below to save your spot!

Frequently Asked Questions


Within three weeks of your session you will receive a link to your online gallery with the high-resolution edited images. Download, share, save, and print your images directly from your gallery.


I ask you not to put filters on the images we take, especially when sharing on social media sites. The only exception is turning an image to black and white. I believe that part of choosing a photographer is for their editing style. An image on social media with a filter on it is no longer representative of the photographer's artistic work. Your online network may not know the difference between how I edited the image and the filter you applied which can negatively affect the reputation and marketing ability of the photographer.

How many images will I receive?

We will provide you with a handful or images so that YOU get to pick your top 10 favorite images to download. You'll have the option to purchase additional images individually or upgrade to receive the full gallery. 

Do you watermark the images?

Our mini sessions are a little different than our regular portrait sessions. Because we are only providing a limited number of images during a mini session, we do watermark these images. When you download or print them, the watermark will be automatically removed.


When does my gallery expire?

You'll be able to print high quality professional images, photo books, gifts, and keepsakes directly from your online gallery. I also provide you with a print release when you download your photos so that you can print your images at any location of your choosing. 

You'll have access to your online gallery for one month after we deliver it to you. This ensures you have everything you need for family gifts and personal keepsakes. Please be sure to download your images and save an extra copy in the cloud before then!

ope, have we met? I'm katzie

As a mom myself I know how precious family pictures are as your love multiplies. I love getting to help others remember the sweetness of this fleeting season of life all while having fun together along the way.

Our clients always rave about my calm yet upbeat presence that helps them feel comfortable and confident in front of the lens. You'll be amazed how fast the time flies and how much variety we can capture in such a short amount of time. 

When I'm not shooting portraits and weddings, I'm chasing my toddler around the house, cuddling on the couch to binge a new TV show with my husband, or having heart to hearts with friends over (iced) coffee.
