Hey there! I'm Belle!

I offer seasonal mini sessions in Northern VA

I am based in Gainesville, VA; and I offer fall, spring, & Christmas mini sessions for families, expecting moms, and seniors in Northern VA, including Haymarket, Warrenton, Manassas, Fairfax, Centreville, Reston, Herndon, Sterling, Ashburn, Leesburg, Alexandria, Arlington, & more.

For families who have younger kids that have shorter attention spans or those who want updated photos but do not want a full session

This season of your life deserves to be remembered. Whether you want to document a special milestone or you need updated photos for your holiday cards, mini sessions are perfect for you.

From the photos where everyone is looking at the camera smiling, to the sweet in between moments, you'll get to enjoy these in the years to come. I want you to look at these photos and be reminded that this was one of the best years of your lives.

Browse this page, read about the experience, and reach out when you're ready. I look forward to creating fun memories for you & your family.

The TBP Team

I have associate photographers who do mini Sessions on my behalf when I am booked or unavailable. It's also a great way to get the TBP Experience on a smaller budget.

My associate photographers were trained directly by me on location scouting, lighting, shooting techniques, posing workflows, & client interaction. They also completed assignments and were provided feedback all throughout the training period. The associate photographers were carefully chosen by me based on their positive and upbeat personalities, but most importantly the same passion for loving & serving clients as I do. Therefore, if you book with a TBP associate, you can be rest assured that you are going to get the same quality of photos & client experience that TBP has been known for.





All About Mini Sessions

What Are Mini Sessions?

Mini sessions are shorter portrait sessions that are usually 10 - 15 minutes long. They are usually holiday- or seasonal-themed. The location will vary depending on the current mini session offered. Several sessions are usually scheduled back to back within the same day, so observing punctuality is absolutely a must.

Only limited slots will be offered per mini session.

Are you currently offering Mini Sessions in Northern VA?

I do offer mini sessions in spring & fall. Booking my mini sessions open up to my VIP List first; which means they get first dibs on a time slot of their choice, before I open the booking to the public.

Kind Words From Past Clients


“From the beginning to the end, she made me feel seen & cared for...”

Working with Belle was such a pleasant experience. This was my first time working with a professional photographer and I’m so glad I chose her to document precious moments of my growing family. Seriously, from the beginning to the end, she made me feel seen and cared for. She worked really hard to get to know me and my family as much as she could. Photographing a toddler and a baby is not easy and she impressed me with how amazing she was! I loved all our photos and I will cherish them and this time of life forever!


Reston, Virginia Spring Mini Session


“Working with her feels like we were with an old friend...”

Our family feels so lucky to have meet and worked with Belle. She truly loves what she does and is a very talented photographer. From the moment we meet Belle she made us feel so comfortable, that it was like we were with an old friend. She is wonderful with children and always knows how to capture the perfect shoot. Belle always goes above and beyond and we look forward to working with her for years to come!


Sterling, Virginia Fall Mini Session


“She managed to get an amazing gallery in just 15 minutes...”

We did a fall mini session last year with Belle and it was truly amazing! Not only were the photos absolutely amazing, but the entire experience was great: she's super responsive, organized, on top of everything. She helps you with every detail to make sure you have the best experience, gives you tips on what to wear and how to coordinate your entire family so the pictures look great, and managed to get an amazing gallery in just 15 minutes. We couldn't select favorites, we loved them all! We had such a great experience that we already booked her for a cake smash for my daughter's first birthday in a few months & also booked her for our fall mini session this year!


Chantilly, Virginia Fall Mini Session


“...she has a way of making an image come to life...”

Belle is incredibly talented and has a way of making an image come to life that other photographers simply don't. Her photos capture precious life time moments and bring out the best in her subjects. I have magical moments captured and framed throughout my home because of Belle!


Ashburn, Virginia Fall Mini Session


“She worked so hard to ensure my daughter cooperates during our photoshoot...”

Belle is amazing at pictures and she worked so hard to make my wild younger daughter not play in an open field of grass & ensures she cooperates during our photoshoot! She took wonderful pictures of the ones I love!

“Even though she was faced with difficulties with the original setup, she communicated effectively & brought in so much more...”

Belle was amazing! Even though she was faced difficulties with the original setup she communicated effectively and brought in so much more. She is super sweet and super talented. We are thankful for her for capturing our first 'official' holiday photos as a family of three!


Haymarket, Virginia Christmas Mini Session


“...highly recommend to anyone looking to have a stress-free memory-memory making experience...”

Every aspect of our photography session was wonderful. The timely communication beforehand, clear instructions for where to meet day of, and patience with our toddler and infant were much appreciated. Everything was professional, from the session itself, to all of the photography products that were provided. I highly recommend to anyone looking to have a stress-free memory-making experience!
