This year will be our 11th year in a row offering our fun & easy fall mini sessions. These are popular with clients who prefer online booking, a shorter shoot time, and an efficient online or in-person ordering appointment.

We offer our mini session clients an abbreviated yet elevated experience, high-quality custom artwork, and beautiful, expressive portraits to hang on your walls and adorn your holiday cards!

Within one week of placing your order, we will send an email to confirm your session, gather information about your family, and assist you with session planning.

One week before your session, we will send directions on where to meet us for your portrait session—the exact location is based on foliage & local events.

COVID Concerns

Allegheny County was recently placed in the "substantial" range for COVID, and though we are hopeful that this wave will pass by the time of our fall shoots, we can't say for sure. We are aware that some of you may have unvaccinated children or other risk factors or concerns. I like to think that outdoor portraits are one of the few family activities that can be done completely safely during a pandemic!

We will do everything we can to make sure you and your family stay safe and comfortable! We'll start by following all CDC guidelines for vaccinated people at the time of your shoot. Jeremy and I are both fully vaccinated, and all mini sessions in 2021 will take place outdoors. Though you cannot wear a mask during your shoot, we are happy to wear masks at your request. Lastly, we will give you the option to review and order your portraits at a Zoom ordering appointment if you prefer to avoid an in-person meeting at our studio.
