Holiday Minis 2023

What do I need to know?

This year's minis will really focus on capturing great shots within beautiful local scenery. Spots will be limited this year, so be sure to grab your spot early! Mini sessions are 15 minutes in length and include edits of best shots from the session that are delivered in a private gallery for download. You can print and share your images however you like, but I do recommend using a professional lab for printing. Feel free to ask me more about printing options. If you share your images to social media, don't forget to tag your photographer! Click one of the images above or the book here links below to grab your spot.

I look forward to seeing you for the 2023 holiday season!


  1. What should I wear? Below are descriptions of each session that includes suggestions for wardrobe. Comfort is key! Depending on the scenery, great go to choices are neutrals such as whites and khaki. If you love bright colors, jewel tones such as sapphire, emerald, and ruby are eye catching. The colors you choose to wear impact the appearance of your images as well as the conditions of lighting. Take a peek through my website gallery to view examples of images and color palates that you prefer.
  2. Do you offer props? There will be a few small props available during sessions to add a touch of the holidays for those holiday cards. Some examples include signs, candy canes, wreaths etc. Typically props are small and can be held or easily added to images. My goal is to provide images you will be happy with and can use not only for holiday cards, but also to cherish year round or even give as a gift to loved ones.
  3. When will I receive my images? I work hard to edit and deliver images as quickly as possible. You can expect to have your images within 2 weeks from your session, but many times they are delivered sooner. Images are delivered through a private online gallery for digital download and include printing rights.

Warm Winter Nights

Sessions here during this time of year are in high demand! During the fall, the grasses bloom into a beautiful red. I anticipate that the grass will be in bloom for these minis. If not, the grasses still provide beautiful backdrop for images as seen below. These are also a great option for those looking for fall images.

Dates: 10/27, 11/4, 11/19

Location: Cypress Point Park, Tampa, Florida

What to wear: Warm colors for that fall feeling; these may include reds, oranges, greens, tan, browns, khaki...

Jewel tones or traditional holiday wear if you would like a more holiday feeling in your images.

Sea-sun's Greetings

Beach sessions are a must for the holiday season! These typically are best sellers, so if you are looking for a mini on the beach, grab a spot if available! Last year we were blessed with cloudy cool toned evenings. Colors in final images depend on the lighting conditions of the beach and the wardrobe colors that are chosen. Check out my gallery for plenty of examples of pictures at the beach.

Dates: 11/11, 12/2

Location: Honeymoon Island State Park, parking fee required for entrance.

What to wear: The options are unlimited at the beach and truly depends on what you have a preference for. Anywhere from warm colors and jewel tones to neutrals are great options.
