Mini sessions are geared towards families who want to be able to capture individual shots of their children without having to pay the full session fee. Minis are limited to 15 minutes only and are only scheduled at a specific date, time and location. Session fees are collected at booking and are non-transferable and non-refundable. All digital files are downloadable through my online gallery.
“What's included for the Mini-Session fee?”
Included in the $150 fee are 5 photos along with the corresponding web-sized digital for social media sharing. Additional photos are available for purchase and you may even add on cards, prints, canvases, etc.
“Would it be possible to bring our pet as a part of our family photo?”
Of course! However, photographing pets is like working with toddlers… you are never certain how they will do during the session. I would definitely recommend bringing your pet along and seeing how he or she cooperates! If it’s working great. After a few shots with your four-legged friend, I recommend putting him or her in your car and doing the remainder of the session with just your family.
“I have 3 small children and I would like to get individual portraits of all 3 of them, sibling shots, and a family shot. Is this possible during a mini session?”
While some families can be photographed quickly and get this amount of images, I can not guarantee that you will get all these different types of images during a mini session. If you have concerns about this and know that this is what you are looking for, then I suggest booking a full session, where you are guaranteed to get those types of shots.
“Our family just welcomed a baby this summer and we would like portraits of the baby and a family photo. Is this possible during a mini session?”
Absolutely! All babies must be able to sit unassisted to be photographed individually or can be held by an adult. However, due to time constraints if you have an unhappy baby then I cannot extend the time session by any amount. You will be restricted to 15 minutes, outdoor shots only (we will reschedule in the event of rainy weather).
“It’s raining! What do we do?”
If the weather becomes very severe I will notify you at least 2 hours prior to your shoot if we need to reschedule. We do not reschedule due to cold weather, so bundle up if necessary!
“We will be traveling that weekend. Can we book a mini session the following weekend or another time during the week?”
Unfortunately, I’m able to do a low session fee and provide great quality images at a discount because I’m able to do sessions back to back on this date only. If you need another date then I recommend trying to book a full session.
“Our family has always wanted a session at XYZ location... Can you do a longer session at a location our of choice?”
Of course, I can! You'll have to book a full session because again, I’m only able to offer this price because I’m able to do sessions back to back on this date only. If you would like a different location or extended time please book a full session.
“What do we wear?”
Coordinating your family outfits can be overwhelming! Once you book with me I can provide plenty of tips that will help you style your family in clothing and colors that will make a huge impact on your photos. I suggest picking 3-4 like colors and have everyone wear those as to not match exactly but coordinate with ease. I also have an inspiration board to share with you upon booking to help with your outfit choices.
“Can we bring more than one outfit?”
You can bring along as many outfits as you would like, however, we only have 15 minutes. Due to the time constraint of a mini, I suggest one layered outfit per person where people can take off the top layers and get different looks.
“We love our images! Can we order prints through you?”
Absolutely! In fact, anything larger than an 8x10 I recommend printing through my pro lab which is collaborated to my monitor for optimum color and exposure. In addition, mini session clients receive 10% off all canvases and prints when pre-ordered the day of your session. Want to order more after your session? No problem!
