Complimentary Styling for Your Session


After you book your session, I’ll send you a guide on “what to expect,” general guidelines for styling, as well as a code to access an online styling service that will assist you in choosing your outfits. Style and Select creates a stress-free process for you to choose clothing items based on your goal vibe + color scheme for your session. 

What are parenthood minis?
Parenthood Minis are inclusive to ALL parents and guardians. This can look like parent-child, parents-children, parent-children, grandparents-grandchild, grandparent-grandchild, caretaker-child, and mini maternity. Your love for one another will be highlighted in the interactions together during the mini session. Parenthood minis are not for milestone sessions or individual portraits. 

How many family members can be photographed in the group?
Minis are for groups of five or less.

Can I book two sessions back to back for more family members?
You can book two back to back sessions. The total session time would be 35 minutes, since there is no transition time between minis. 

Where and what time of day will the sessions take place?
Minis will be in the morning and evening at a beautiful peony field in Gaithersburg, Maryland. 

Can I gift a mini session to a friend/family member?
Parenthood Minis are perfect gifts! Prior to booking make sure that your friend/family member would enjoy my style of photography that is lifestyle, joyful, and natural. I document a few traditional portrait smile-look-at-the-camera shots, but that is not the main goal of the session. I encourage you to contact me if you are interested in gifting a session so I can assist in making it extra special. 

What is a print credit?
A print credit is an amount you have to purchase products/prints in the gallery shop. Once you receive your gallery, you will receive a promo code to apply the print credit to the shop at checkout. Some favorite items are fine art hand deckled prints and flay lay albums with a custom engraved cover. 

Why print credit?
Having printed products, keepsakes, and prints preserves the legacy of your family. As a busy parent, I related to the never ending to do list and the list of things that just fell by the way side. Having the print credit as part of your collection give that gentle nudge to choose prints and products so that images move from phones/computers to homes and hands.

Christina had the hardest job of taking shots of another photographer's children. She kept my kids engaged and helped create authentic photos that I will treasure forever. I was impressed with her ability to calm the chaos. – Tj
