Hi there, dear greeting card sender, photo session lover, and architecture admirer!

I am beyond thrilled to invite you for the Holiday Special mini session at the Whalehouse.


The Whalehouse is a grand Victorian built in 1855 in historic New Bedford, Massachusetts. It's the former home of Herman Melville’s sister, and it’s thought he used to visit her here.

The first floor with the fireplace living room, dining room and sunroom would be decorated for us by the absolutely lovely and tasteful owner Laura Parrish Lavin for this upcoming Christmas and Holiday Season.

We start EARLY so that you can have your pictures ready before December to print all of your cards.

Days reserved for mini sessions:

NOVEMBER 14th from 2 pm to 6 pm (six 40-minute time slots)



This is a 40-minute photosession at a gorgeously decorated house for the holiday season.

We can do virtually anything:

- family & kids

- maternity

- couples

- boudoir

- solo portraits

and even your furry friends! 

what's included

- 40 minutes of fun & photography coverage

- 15 edited best pictures

- online gallery with an option to order cards directly from there

(and hey, you friends and family can too, without asking you for that USB stick)

Pick your date
Thanks! Can't wait to photograph you!
  • Can I come to my session a little earlier to prepare?
    Yes! Please come a little earlier, you will have place to change on fix up before a phototsession. We need to start on time in order fro every client recieve an entire 40 minute photoshoot. Also, you can request to have a spare room to do a make up and hairstyle on location.
  • Do you provide make up and hair services?
    Those services are not inclided in the mini session package, though I can give you recomendadtions. Also, you can bring your make up/hair artist on location and prepare there.
  • Will you help me to decide on what to wear?
    Yes, sure! Let's talk about in in detail via email. But general rule of thumb is to dress accordingly to the time of the day. Daylight sessions call for more bright and light look, when the evening one for more cozy or festive. I would avoid busy patternts, logos and mistmatching styles between participants.
  • How many outfits I can bring?
    For a mini session I won't recomend more than one, but if you REALLY want to change, we need to do it quick and on expence of our session time.
  • Who can come with me?
    At this time due to safety regulations we advice not to bring any persons who are not participating/helping in the photosession. Also! You pets can come too!
  • Are you comfortbale photograping boudoir?
    Yes, of course! I've been doing it for years anf would love to ensure you that I am a bodypositivity advocate and will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable.
  • When I will get my pictures?
    Expect a 2-3 week wait time in October and 1,5 weeks in November.
  • How will I get my pictures?
    When your pictures are ready you will get an email invitation to your online gallery. For your convinience the gallery is directly connected to the printing company and also to a greeting card desining app. You are not obligated to use those services, all printing rights are your. All pictures in the gallery are final product in a Jpg format and ready to be downloaded in a variety of sizes.
  • Can I reschedule?
    Unfortunately this specific mini session can't be rescheduled, unless you do it ahead of time and there are available time slots still. Also, you can't transfer you non-refundable deposit fee for other photography services due to the rental cost of the place.
  • How can I cancel?
    Please cancel as soon as you know that you have to, so someone else can use an opportunity for this limited offer. Please remember, that a security deposit required for the booking is not refundable.
