The holidays are right around the corner!

We are almost completely booked from now until the end of the year, so these are a great chance to get a session in with us before it’s too late!

Our annual holiday mini sessions are a great alternative for clients looking for that signature image to use for their holiday cards without the commitment of a full session. Digital files (w/print release) are included with all booked mini session. Clients may also order additional prints + products to add to their home decor or use as great holiday gifts for family and friends, if they’d like.


Q) WHO are good candidates for mini-sessions?
A) Mini sessions are perfect for families who would like updated portraits, but don’t have time for a full session or maybe can’t necessarily afford a full custom photography session. These mini sessions are usually booked with the holidays in mind, since prints and canvases are great gifts for family members.

Mini sessions are open to:  families, children, maternity, seniors, and couples/engagements.

Q) WHAT is a mini session?
A) Our mini-sessions are 20 minute portrait sessions held only once each year (usually in the fall)  in a specific location.

Q) WHERE are the mini sessions being held?

  • Raleigh, NC: These mini sessions will be held in a nature setting within Raleigh and Cary.
  • Fayetteville, NC: These fall mini sessions will be held in a nature setting located within Fayetteville.
    (Address TBA upon booking)  Fall leaves = gorgeous!
  • *NEWLY ADDED: Charlotte, NC: Early afternoon sessions will be held at Freedom Park. Late afternoon sessions will take place at Romare Bearden Park.

Q) WHEN should I book?
A) As soon as possible! We have limited availability, and these will go fast! Payment is due in full at time of booking to secure session slot.

Q) WHY should I use Ashley + David Photography for mini sessions this fall?
A) If you’re anything like us, you have a very busy fall calendar and crossing “family photos” AND “holiday cards” off your list would bring a huge sigh of relief!
Plus, this might even take the stress out of those extended family gifts too. Not bad for a 20 minute session!

Think 25 minutes might not be enough time for you? Trust us, we’re really awesome at getting beautiful images quickly! We’ve been doing this for a long time and have found that 25 minutes is really all we need to nail it.
(And even though we’re super fun…most kids are over the whole modeling thing after 20 minutes anyway.)
