Are you even winning at Instagram if you don't have cute Christmas images to share?
You'll get 20 minutes in front of the camera, which is plenty of time to snap shiny new headshots, branding portraits, and a few stock or lifestyle images. The day after the mini sessions you'll receive a gallery filled with your unedited proofs. Choose your favorite 10 images to be edited (or upgrade to purchase your entire gallery!) and they'll be turned around in just a few business days.
Mini sessions are $150 and include 10 final edited images. The event will take place inside the front room of a studio in downtown historic building in Leesburg, VA. Think: white walls, an old, wooden floor, white cafe table and chairs, and a velvet green couch. We'll also have access to the adorably tiny backyard as well as the sidewalk out front for any outdoor images.
•30 minute time slot; 20-25 minutes on-camera;
•Christmas + winter brand portraits (10, or upgrade for your full gallery);
•Discount code for future branding photo sessions;
$150 - 50% due at booking; remainder will be sent via invoice along with photo release

20 minutes sounds short, but you'd be amazed at how much we can get done in that time (because we prepare in advance, of course!). After headshots, we'll jump into lifestyle portraits, the meaning of which will vary from person to person.I like to ease folks into photos with the simplest pose - the headshot - and go from there. You can expect a mix of camera-aware images (looking into the camera) as well as a few candids. These are perfect for adding to your "About Me" page, or for sharing on social media. Besides, there's no need to take ourselves so seriously that we can't take a minute to dance!
Yes! Bring a laptop or journal if you'd like to show yourself in a work-like setting. Are you an artist or maker? Work on a portable project in your photos! You can even use these photos as a chance to show off your non-work related hobbies. For example, I'm obviously a professional photographer. But if I were attending a brand photo mini session, I might bring along some of my watercolors and a half-finished painting so I could have photos of myself working on my art. I start a lot of conversations and connections on social media thanks to my love of painting!
Two at most. Mini sessions are mini for a reason - they're meant to be quick and just cover the basics. That said, I totally encourage you to get as much variety from your photos as possible. Two full outfit changes max, or simply swap out your top and accessories. Consider your brand colors and vibe when choosing your outfits, and don't forget to be yourself!
Personal Brand Portraits + Mini Sessions from DC to California!
I hate getting my picture taken! But you quickly made me feel comfortable with your sweetheart personality and us bonding over our awkwardness. So my photos weren't stiff and boring like I feared!
"OMG you have to use Alicia!"
Hire her now, and don't even talk to me about how you can DIY this shit -- 'cause you can't, and won't, and her work is better anyway, and cute selfies with Instagram filters on them are IN NO WAY the same as headshots with a wise and ease-making human like Alicia.
"These are *better* than they were in my head. (And they were pretty freaking stunning in my head.) "
