Yosemite National Park Mini Session


May 18, 2024


I am thrilled to announce that I will be hosting mini-photography sessions at Yosemite this year. There will be two set dates available, one in the spring and the other in November (specific date to be determined). Mini sessions are short photo sessions with a predetermined location in the valley. These sessions will be back-to-back and limited to 30-45 minutes. Please note that multiple outfit changes will not be possible due to the limited time.

​What can this session be used for?

This session can be used for anything, including branding, family, couples, maternity, proposal, engagement, bridal, etc. The only exception is boudoir, as it will be in a public and open setting. There is a cap of 5 people. There is an additional fee of $20 per person after the 5th person.


What is the cost?

There are two options available for your session. The first one is a 30-minute session that includes one location. The second option is a 45-minute session that includes two locations. For the latter, we will begin at the primary location and then walk to the secondary location. There will be 2-3 options to choose from for the secondary location, and both locations will be in the same area.

need ideas on where to stay?

Once you book, I will send you guides on places in the park I recommend to stay. They all range from $-$$$. I've stayed at all of them! Don't want to stay inside the park? No worries! I have a few hotels that I can recommend as well that is close to grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, etc.
