My most popular products & sizes are available for Mini Sessions:

IMAGE BOX (aka the "Deconstructed Album")

Think of this as a "deconstructed album." It's great for those who want a collection of images, but aren't quite "album people." The Image Box is incredibly versatile because you can easily frame the prints, display them on easels in your home, or store in the box as a keepsake item. You can even keep a few for yourself and gift the others to family members.

Image Box includes a keepsake box and TEN DOUBLE SIDED 8x10 fine art prints with white border (for 20 images total), which means that you get more bang for your buck and can easily switch up your in-home displays.

8" x 10" - $549
11" x 14" - $749


Each archival-quality, brilliantly colored canvas comes ready to hang.

This isn't your ordinary canvas. The company actually holds a patent on the design, so it definitely won't be found elsewhere. 

What makes it so unique? The printed canvas is actually wrapped around a solid block (not just an open frame, as most others are)... meaning that the canvas won't easily get holes from being poked by curious fingers, and the canvas won't sag over time. 

It's also a LOT more lightweight than other canvases you'll find elsewhere, meaning that there will be less damage to your artwork AND people, should the canvas be knocked from the wall by accident or earthquake. 

11" x 14" - $197 
16" x 20" - $297 
20" x 24" - $387 
24" x 30" - $447 


Easily create your own wall collage with these Mounted Prints. Images are printed on the finest archival paper and mounted on white matboard for easy framing and durability (so no accidental wrinkling or folding during the framing process). These prints will withstand the test of time and are sure to be treasured.

5" x 7" - $75
8" x 10" - $75
11" x 14" - $119
16" x 20" - $197
20" x 30" - $289
24" x 30" - $329

DIGITAL IMAGES (High Resolution, with Print Release)

Digital Images are great for the DIY-er who wants to create something on their own. 

Digital Images will be available as an instant download, and will also be delivered via an online image gallery which will be accessible to you for TEN YEARS for extra backup + peace of mind.)

Individual Digital Image - $99

Just indicate your interest in cards and I'll be happy to upload all session images to Minted.com, for your convenience, to make the card selection process sooooo much easier!

And even better... clients will receive a code to take 15% off their card & announcement order at Minted.com.

Book a Mini Session

Hey there! I'm MICHELLE... the one behind the camera.

Sooo... why book an experience with ME? Because I'm more than just a photographer.

With my degree in psychology and years spent working in children's group homes + art camps, I've learned to instantly connect with a range of personalities and work with all sorts of moods. I work hard so that you don't have to... creating the most stress-free and FUN experience from start to finish.

Long story short: The camera has been an extension of my hand for most of my life, and I've been running The Suitcase Studio for over 10 years now... providing FUN + stress-free photo experiences with less posing + more PLAY!

And I still use my psychology background and insight on each + every photo shoot as I calm the nerves of parents, maneuver kids out of meltdown mode, and help everyone connect in the most genuine of ways.

I see you the way your loved ones see you; quirks and all. And we celebrate that uniqueness, together. HOW? By creating a FUN photo experience for all involved (cross my heart). Yes, we'll be taking pictures. But by the end of it, I swear you'll forget I have the camera in my hand. So let's PLAY!
