Tidal Basin Mini Sessions

Let’s capture your classic Washington DC portraits together

Due to the heavy construction going on at the Lincoln Memorial, I decided to switch gears and offer minis at another classic DC location. Whether you join me for graduation portraits, professional headshots, or family photos, the Tidal Basin and Jefferson Memorial can do it all! With the sparkling water, Washington Monument, and classic columns, we are sure to have a great time together.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the session?

15 minutes

Is 15 minutes long enough to get good photos?

Absolutely. After 14 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 40+ amazing images within the 15 minute timeframe.

How many images are usually in the proof gallery?

Anywhere from 50-100 images

What happens if it rains?

I’m sure to keep in touch with you as we get closer to the session date. If it’s looking like the weather won’t cooperate, we will move the mini sessions to the official rain date, Sunday, April 21, 2024. Your session time will remain the same, just on the new date. No refunds are available if you cannot make the rain date.

What if I want more than 5 images?

If you have too many favorites and can’t narrow down your final 5 favorites, I offer the following A La Carte options:

  • Each Additional Image: $15
  • 15 Additional Images: $200
  • Unlimited: $400 (Select any and all of the photos you want me to edit and deliver)
Recent Mini Session Client Reviews

“Great experience with Christine! She was timely, professional and so great with our kids. I loved the concept of the mini sessions that she offers which made it possible to get great photos with two little ones, not to mention affordable. Our pictures turned out so beautiful! Would definitely recommend and use her again in the future!”

Recent Mini Session Client Reviews

“Christine is unmatched in talent, skill, integrity and professionalism. She awes us every time. Her eye for lighting, framing, editing, posed, and candid shots is breathtaking and (my personal favorite) she is a toddler whisperer. She took all of my favorite family photos and at this point I won’t book with anyone else.”
