Mini Sessions are BACK… it’s time for that marketing refresh!

Imagine starting 2024 with a new, on-brand set of beautiful custom photos to use in your marketing, on your socials, your website, anywhere you want to connect with your audience.

Well, good news, now is the time to get a Branding Photo refresh with Fall + Winter Mini Sessions!

If you’re a business professional who’s worked hard to get where you are,
but the images you use of yourself don’t quite reflect that…

OR – you’re ready for a photo refresh to keep building up that content library!
It’s time to up your photo game. Join us for Branding Mini Sessions, December 1!

Ask yourself this:

1.) When did you last have a professional portrait taken? Have you ever?
2.) Are you happy with your current headshot or profile picture?
3.) Do you need better photos for your website and social media?
4.) Do the photos you use reflect who you are today, or who you want to be?
5.) Do you want to work with someone who will ease your nerves, and give you a simplified,
fun experience with spectacular results? Of course you do! That’s why I do Mini Sessions!
6.) Do you want styling assistance, so you look your absolute best and don’t second guess yourself?!

Here are the Basics:

If you’re thinking, “Is this for me, do I need this? I think I want this. I’m not sure.”

Mini Sessions come around twice per year.
I do this for entrepreneurs, business professionals, or anyone that uses photos in their marketing,
as a way to give them the opportunity to get a robust session in a small amount of time,
for a fraction of the cost.
This is one day only, limited time slots, huge benefit.

The truth is, having an online presence is necessary in our digital world.
You put so much time and effort into your work, your profession, your business.
You want to stand out, and you want to look your best.
Custom photos truly can help you rise above the rest in that sea of competition.

Write your own narrative, don’t let it be written for you.

Getting your photo taken can feel stressful, you almost never feel ready.
Putting it off just adds to the stress. It feels so good to get this done!

Especially with an experienced team that will make you look and feel your best.
The styling portion of these mini sessions is a huge benefit!
You’ll get photos that aren’t just “pretty”, but genuinely represent you, your personality, your brand voice.

You’re busy and overwhelmed.
That’s why these mini sessions will be short and sweet, with just enough prep to make you feel excited, confident and ready to go!
We’ve perfected packing in so much in so little time.
And you want someone to do it for you, as simply and easily as possible.

Such a great value!
You will get so many amazing photos from such a short and affordable session.
I had the assumption that it would be short and rushed.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were many options for backgrounds,
poses, and such, but the photos were so much more
– Susan P

I can’t recommend enough!
I feel confident using these photos as they represent my personality and professionalism.
Tina and the stylist were so encouraging and helpful that it really put me at ease,
and I ended up enjoying the experience – which I think showed in the photographs!
Do not hesitate to take advantage of these services!

You truly care.
I knew you cared, but everything you did and sent really showed how much you cared about each person and getting custom images for them.

Fall Branding + Headshot Mini Sessions is perfect for you if:

  • The image you are using on your about page, LinkedIn profile, etc. is more than two years old.
  • It needs improvement. Maybe it was a DIY, a dreaded “selfie”, or you just look different now!
  • You want to dip your toe into a branding session, but only need a few photos right now.
  • You are running out of images for your social media posts.
  • You may want a full branding session in the future, but only want to invest a small amount at this time.
  • Your schedule is crazy, and you can’t devote much time right now.
  • You want to work with someone experienced, who will make the process seamless and enjoyable.
  • It’s FUN! I make it quick and easy and you’ll walk away with amazing new images.
  • You’ve been saying you will do this, and just haven’t gotten around to it. This is your sign – JOIN US!

Think about the places you need new photos, where you should update them and how much you do or don’t like what you currently have.

The photos I take will be on brand for you, no matter what you do. Prep and planning materials will be included to ensure you’re ready to go and look your best. If you simply want a headshot, that’s great, if you want to do a bit more, that’s even better.

Use this opportunity to make it a true mini Personal Branding Session. BRING PROPS! Are you a baker? Bring a cake! An artist? Bring your supplies! An architect, please, bring those huge blueprints! You’ll be surprised at the variety we can get in a short period of time with a bit of strategic planning.

Thinking about it? Do it.
Not only for the opportunity to have professional headshots, but to feel good about yourself.
It has been nice to have a go-to set of pictures I know look good and feel like me,
yet professional. I’ve had opportunities where people asked for a headshot for an article or
presentation and I was ready to go! I updated my headshot and my profile
to help reset my professional brand.

Location: “ContrastRVA” in Manchester


ContrastRVA is a privately owned studio in Richmond (Manchester area), which I’ve recently become an exclusive member of! This means we will have the entire space to ourselves, to create to our hearts content!

Some of the reasons I chose this space:

  • It is wide open, with great natural light and white walls.
  • One of the things I look for in a good location is a variety of seating options. As you can see below, we have couches, chairs, tables, and lots of plants to use!
  • The colors are neutral, so it will work with a variety of brands and styles.
  • We can easily move through the space to get a lot of setups in our 20 minutes.
  • Indoor AND outdoor options! If it’s a nice day, we can use the outdoor space as well.

    Here is a preview of the space!

Wardrobe + Image Consulting to remove the guesswork:

I’m once again partnering with Anetra of NeeChic to help you look and feel your very best!
Wardrobe consultation is built into your mini session package!

Here is how this will take your photos to the next level, even if you don’t think you need a stylist’s assistance:

  • She will assess and determine your body type, ensuring clothing fits in the most flattering way.
  • Color analysis. Find out which colors look best with your skin tone and undertones, as well as match your brand. Ensuring you look poised and glowing instead of washed out and tired.
  • On-set Assistance. She’s a detail master. Checking for wrinkles, link, missing buttons, threads, bra straps, hair out of place. All of those tiny things to fix and adjust as we take your photos.
  • Plus, she’ll make you feel amazing about yourself, confident and ready to go!
