Northern Virginia Fundraiser Mini Sessions

All about Northern Virginia mini sessions – but with a fundraising twist! “Fundraiser mini sessions” have become one of my favorite ways of giving back to our community. They are an annual collaborative effort between myself and my two photographer besties, Jamie of Jamie Romaezi Photography and Justine of Fluttering Shutter Photography.

For 9 years now, we’ve selected one day to volunteer our photography and host a mini session event where 100% of proceeds from session fees go to a designated non-profit.

Why fundraiser mini sessions in Northern Virginia?

Giving back to my community has always been been a priority for me in my personal life. I carried that value over into my professional life as well.

Nine years ago, Jamie and I were 2 preemie mamas who separately fundraised for the March of Dimes and participated in the annual walk. When we realized we could use our businesses to multiply our efforts, we worked together to create a format that would provide our clients with beautiful photos and an opportunity to give back. Not long after, Justine joined our preemie mama club, and we were thrilled when she also joined our fundraising efforts.

Our little preemies are now big kids, and our mission has shifted to amplify the message of and raise funds for smaller non-profit organizations.
