I'm so glad that you're here and I can't wait to work together!

Your  portrait experience should be one you'll always remember.  It should be relaxed, fun, and just as unique as this season of your life.  That's exactly what I aim for when we work together.

Hi friends!  Welcome, y,all!

scroll on if you're into it.

Yay!  This is it

I'm a photographer specializing in  senior portraits, documenting milestones, and finding the perfect light.  I'm also a mom, a wife, a fitness enthusiast, and skincare fanatic with a heart for serving my clients through the happiest milestones of their life.

Making my clients feel loved and special has always been my priority.  When we work together, you're working with a photographer that's dedicated to making this your very best portrait experience ever!

Well hi there!
I'm Abby Hudson.

Ready for gorgeous images?

Minis are offered on a few exclusive dates throughout the year and once they are full, thats it until next year!

These shorter sessions are perfect for families with young kids.  They are also great for documenting a new season or celebration, capturing another year as your kids are growing, or even just because!

Although referred to as "mini", you're actually getting the same experience as a full session!

I shoot fast and efficiently so you can expect images that include a healthy mix of posed and candids!

Because these sessions are on a specific day at a specific location, they are offered at a fraction of the cost of a regular session!

The location changes depending on the season, but it will always be a tried and true location somewhere within the Northern Neck and surrounding areas!

"Abby is so so so amazing to work with !!!

I believe that your portraits should be an expression of who you are as an individual and stand as an example of the season of life you're in.  I truly care about making this experience a memorable one.  I also really care about how you feel in front of the camera and how you'll feel looking back on your images.

You're not just hiring a photographer here, you're working with someone who really cares

How far in advance do you book sessions?

Mini session dates are announced and booking is launched in January.  Sessions are reserved on a first come first served basis, so the sooner you book,  the better!! 

Frequently Asked Questions

How far do you travel for sessions?

I shoot in the Northern Neck and surrounding areas!  Think Richmond County, Essex, Westmoreland, King William, Lancaster, and Northumberland!  

Can we travel farther?

I am not available for travel at this time, but all mini sessions will be held at a tried and true location that I know will result in beautiful images! 

What do I wear to my session?!

I'll send you my portrait style guide as soon as we book so that you can begin planning your outfits with professional guidance!

Can you help me find someone for hair and make up?

Yes!  I've worked with some of the best hair and make up artists in  the industry!  Just ask and I'll be happy to refer you to them!

Will you help me with posing?

Absolutely!  Helping guide you through posing during our time together is part of the experience!  You'll be a pro by the time we are finished and it will be so easy and so fun!  Trust me!

Can I book a full session instead?

My calendar outside of mini sessions is reserved for my high school senior clients, so I am only able to offer mini sessions at this time for my portrait clients and family clients.

Who are mini sessions for?

The mini session experience is for anyone to document any milestone of your life!  From engagements to maternity sessions and annual family photos to document your growing family or a "just because" session, these portraits are meant to capture this season of your life before another moment passes by!
