Holiday Mini Sessions Booking NOW!

Little Loves has set up three amazing options for this year’s holiday mini sessions – the Christmas Tree Farm, Maymont and in studio – and they are booking now.

Looking for another session type, different time or other location? Limited session times still available.  Message me!

First, we will be returning to the Windy Knoll Tree Farm. These are always a tremendous success. Expect a full set of Christmas themed props to accompany your tree farm experience.  Because they are a little late in the season, they will have a 48 turnaround on images, from when I receive your proof gallery choices. Plenty of time for cards and gifts!

There will be two studio sets ups and I am not quite ready to share them!  I have been hard at work sourcing props and coming up with a truly unique set up that I am so excited about.  Think bright rustic touches and deep greens.    

This set up will be for our pre-school crowd only, as my studio is a smaller space.  Please consider that when booking your session.  Perfect for babies, crawler, toddlers and young children.

The full setup will be shared next week, please contact me if you are interested in booking a time. The Little Loves home studio is located near River and 288  in Richmond’s West End.

What about Covid?
It gets better everyday but we aren’t there yet.  But for now, there will be some changes this year. 

Less Props (and that makes me so sad!). Families are welcome to bring their own props blankets, as necessary, to sit on, snuggle in, or to line baskets for our non-sitters. 

Masks & Social Distance.  By these minis, I will be fully vaccinated, we will be outside and I do my best to stay 6 feet from you. I am happy to wear a mask during our time together, if that is more comfortable for your family.  Please do not hesitate to ask me.  

I appreciate your understanding on this.

What about Covid?
I know, I can’t wait to leave that questions behind.  But for now, there will be some changes this year. 

1.  This year there will be no studio minis. So all Holiday Minis will be outdoors.  But don’t worry, we can still accommodate the younger crowd and I moved the first set up a bit to perhaps get slightly warmer weather.  If you have a younger child and have questions, please message me.

2. There will be considerably less props (and that makes me so sad!).  I am still determining exactly how to handle this and I will send out information when it is finalized.  But current changes include:Having “single use” props (mostly to keep little hands busy, like candy canes, Christmas balls and fake wrapped gift) that will only be used once. Ask families to bring their own blankets, as necessary, to sit on, snuggle in, or to line baskets for our non-sitters. Lots of Lysol!  The few props I do have (sleds, tricycle’s, chair, etc.) will be used sparingly and wiped down and sprayed between sessions. Of course, you are welcome to bring props from home or use none at all.  And this is all subject to change.  I appreciate your understanding on this.

These will be the last mini-sessions in 2020.  And as always, as my VIP newsletter subscribers, you are getting these dates first.  They will be released on social media later this weekend.  Hint, hint, act fast, these will not last.

Look forward to seeing so many of you as we say goodbye to 2020!

Downtown RVA
$125 / 25 minutes / 5 images

Back by popular demand (and Covid cancellation).  Last year we took to the streets to capture some of what makes this city so special.  And it was awesome.  Think city streets, murals and old school RVA charm.
Each year Little Loves is honored to do a set of minis to support the JDRF and their efforts to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.  For these minis, every penny is donated to the JDRF through our family’s One Walk Team Trey’s Avengers.  Over the last several years, these minis have helped our team raise over $85.000 for the JDRF.

Additionally, last year I had so many clients ask for proof galleries and extra images that I am going to make a huge change that I think will serve many of you better.  Going forward, for all mini sessions, you will have two options:

– Photographers’ Choice –  If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!  As in the past, I will pick my favorite 5 images, a variety best representing our session time together.  They will be edited and sent along to you.

 Your Pick 5 – New for 2020!   Within 48 hours of your session, you will be sent an unedited proof gallery containing the best images from your session.  From there you will choose the images you want edited.  The first 5 are always included.  If you find additional images you would also like, they will be $10 each. 

You will be given the option to choose every time you book a mini session.  If you have any questions on this, please let me know.
 What do I get?
Holiday Mini sessions include a 25 minute session, plus 5 professionally edited, high resolution digital images.  You will receive an online gallery suitable for sharing, as well as print rights to your images.  

How do I book?
To book your session simply click the “BOOK NOW” link under each mini session description.  From there you will be able to choose from available times and pay your deposit to hold your session time.  As our session approaches, you will receive additional information about where to meet and how to pay the remainder of your balance.

Last, to learn more about updated practices during Covid-19, please pop over to our 2020 Covid Update.
 

Little Loves Is Back!

After a two month stay at home, I have decided to open back up for photography sessions! And I am so excited to see you all! But first, let’s discuss….

I have the utmost concern for the health and safety for your family and mine. So for now, we will have several new protocols in place.

1 – All sessions (except newborn) will be held at an outdoor location. Many of my favorite spots for sessions have also become people’s favorite outdoor retreat during these times. So we will also do our best to choose locations and times of day that will be less crowded.

2 – All sessions will be zero contact. When booking your session, you will be sent information on how to pay online and fill out the Client Release and Contact Info (for new clients). I will also no longer be providing props (I know, I am going to miss all the cute chairs too!) but you are welcome to bring you own.

3 – Sessions will be limited to 8 family members or less. Plus me makes 10.

4 – We will practice physical distancing. I will do my absolute best to stay a 6 feet from you and your family during sessions.

5 – If your sick, reschedule! I know, it feels like this goes with out saying, particularly now. But let me be clear – if anyone in your family has symptoms or has come in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 14 days, just cancel or reschedule. Deposits will be refunded if necessary.

I know these guidelines will change the way some session flow. However, I have put a ton of thought into this and discussed this with fellow photographers and I believe this is the best and safest way to continue capturing memories with your family.

Also, I still have a handful of folks who have deposits left after the canceled mini sessions during the quarantine. I will be touching base with those folks next week. If you do not hear form me, please let me know.

So let’s do this! You can message me to find a time. I look forward to seeing you all.
