 I offer fun, convenient, and affordable ways to get photos of you, your family, and your children!  



A mini session is a bite-size portion of a full session. In 15 minutes, you get just a taste of a full session, but all the benefits of having a few professional images of you and your family this season. It is just enough time to capture some smiles or snag a great holiday card photo!



Due to their brief length, mini sessions are not designed to replace a full session. For those desiring to bring props, have more flexibility in the time and location of the session, or have multiple outfit changes, a full session is recommended.



Mini sessions are perfect for those who want to update their family's pictures on their gallery wall, send new pictures to the grandparents, or have a professional photo on their Christmas card. Minis offer the perfect snapshot into your life right now, giving you all the must-have poses of you with those who mean the most!

Bamboo Beauty Mini Sessions

Bamboo Giant Nursery & Gardens 

is the location for these mini sessions!  

This is a very versatile location to do photos!  It offers acres of bamboo groves as a beautiful backdrop. But if you aren't feeling the bamboo aesthetic, there are also other areas of the gardens that offer other kinds of background scenery to give your photos a natural fresh air vibe. 

There are trees that flower in the spring and burst color in the fall as well as a waterfall feature. This place is a hidden gem!
