MAMA’S WEDDING DRESS STUDIO MINIS March Magic of Childhood Minis

I am SO excited to share March’s studio theme–  Mama’s Wedding Dress Minis!!

I have been dreaming about doing these for years of my own daughter (hers are coming soon) and after photographing my first round of them, I honestly wish I would have done it years ago when my daughter was younger!  They are just so special!!  If mom’s dress isn’t available, your daughter could be in your dress or even grandma’s or a special aunt’s dress- the possibilities are endless!  These work best for a child 3 or older, but if you wanted to bring a baby or toddler and have them more pose with the dress, we could do that too!  Pre-teens/teenagers work beautifully too!  Also- don’t worry if your dress is dirty! It can be hidden!!

I will send a planning guide a couple of weeks before, but moms can bring their shoes, jewelry, veil, and any other details they would like their daughters photographed with!  These are special, meaningful heirloom sessions to pass down for generations, and I simply cannot wait!  There are limited sessions available since these are a little longer- grab yours soon!

Key details: These are 15 minute simple, easy mini-sessions in the gorgeous JGP Studio. See what the studio looks like HERE!

Each session spot is for one kid!

If you have multiple kids, there is a $20 discount to add a second session for members of your family (reach out to me if you have 3 or more at  These sessions take some extra time to style/work out all the details of a kid in an adult sized dress- so that is why they are just for 1 kid!


Note: If you book 2 sessions for multiple kids and decide to upgrade to your full gallery, you will get BOTH full gallery upgrades for the price of 1! Reach out if you have any questions– these are going to be SO meaningful and fun!!

I'm also a photography educator, wife to my favorite person on the planet, mama to 3 amazing kids and an energetic Aussie, and obsessed with statement jewelry and all desserts (especially fruit pies!). 

As a past high school teacher, I have a major heart for education. After going full time in my business, I have built a business I love that gives me an almost 6 figure salary and allows me to be home part time with my kids.  I dream for you to run a business that enhances your life and lights you up, and I believe I can help you learn how to do it with a little hustle and a lot of heart!

You're in the right place!  As a past high school teacher, educating others is my life's work and a HUGE part of my business!  I have been teaching moms and hobbyists how to use their camera from first purchasing it all the way to coaching them into businesses of their own, and I'd love to help you as well, wherever you are (and whatever camera you have!).

I'm so glad you are here!  Teaching Photographers and other small business owners how to run more joyful, successful, and profitable businesses is one of my favorite parts of my business!  I specialize in working with photographers to make their goals a reality (or figure out what their goals should be in the first place!).
