Celebrate the season with beautiful autumn photos

While it may feel way too early to think about pumpkin spice, boots, and scarves, it’s the perfect time to snag your mini session spot for fall photos!

This year I’m thrilled to offer sessions a new location that absolutely stole my heart: Little Oatlands. Not only do you have sweeping, stunning views of Virginia countryside, but there’s a gorgeous two-acre formal garden with photogenic nooks and crannies at every turn. Scroll through the photos below to see some of the garden images I captured there earlier this spring!

I can’t wait to see you there!

Little Oatlands  |  Leesburg, VA  |  Afternoon/Evening Sessions ranging from 2:45-6:15pm.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the session?

20 minutes

Is 20 minutes long enough to get good family photos?

Absolutely. After 11 years of photographing clients, I am able to work quickly and efficiently so that there are a variety of poses and backgrounds for you to choose from when selecting your final images! I’ve never had an issue filing a proof gallery with 50+ amazing images within the 20 minute timeframe.

How many images are usually in the proof gallery?

Anywhere from 50-100 images

What happens if it rains?

This year will be slightly different than previous years due to a heavy wedding travel season. If we are rained out on Oct 31, I will work individually with each client to reschedule your mini session for whichever evening works best for you from Nov 1-5. If none of those evening dates work for you, I will refund your payment and cancel your session.

What if I want the whole gallery?

If you just love the entire proof gallery and can’t narrow down your final 10 favorites, I offer the option to pay a flat rate of $50 for me to deliver the ENTIRE proof gallery to you. Given that there is anywhere from 50-100 images in the proof gallery, it’s like getting a full family session from Captured by CM and only paying half the price.

Recent Mini Session Client Reviews

“Christine is such a talented photographer. She makes you feel so happy and relaxed during the shoot, you almost forget she is taking pictures. And the mini session format is long enough to get quality photos, but short enough that your family won’t lose their patience during the shoot.”

“I loved that we were able to get a variety of poses and photos in while moving quickly. It was the perfect length for a photoshoot with a small baby.”

— Dan & Abby
Recent Mini Session Client Reviews

“Christine does a wonderful job of organizing many different poses with different natural backdrops in a short amount of time. The mini-sessions are also wonderful for children because it is not a long drawn out process. They stay energetic and happy! We have done at least 2 mini-sessions and we prefer them over longer sittings.”

Recent Mini Session Client Reviews

“Mini sessions are the perfect length of session for people wanting to get (many) great pictures of your family, but without it being so long that your kids have a complete meltdown. Christine is kind, patient, and is an excellent photographer. Our living room is full of pictures taken by her during mini sessions!”
