What to Expect with a Mini Session

Is a Mini Session the right fit for you and your family at this time? Read on to find out.


Is a Mini Session Right for You?


A Mini Session is just as it sounds, a shortened photography session. Instead of an hour or more of taking portraits along with changing outfits and locations, the session will last just 20 minutes at one location. 

There will be times when you will want to book a full, lengthy portrait session:  when you want enough photos to fill an album, to celebrate an upcoming marriage with engagement photos, taking senior portraits with outfit changes, etc.

However, Mini Sessions are a great opportunity to have professional portraits taken when you don’t need a lot of them. Many people like to book Mini Sessions to commemorate certain holidays or milestones, take annual family portraits, or are looking to get an updated picture for sending out Christmas cards. These shorter sessions are perfect for families looking to update their portraits and get some beautiful shots for holiday cards, prints, canvases, or gifts.




What is Included in a 2017 Autumn Mini Session?


Mini Sessions include a 20-minute session time,  7 final edited, high-resolution digital files available to you via an online gallery where you can view and download them, and a photo print release.

20 minutes is enough time to take a few different poses of family portraits as well as photos of the kids together, individually and with parents. 

Mini Sessions are scheduled back to back, so it is important to arrive at least 10 minutes early to get the most out of your session. If you arrive late that means less time for your photo session, so let’s make the most out of our time together! 


How to Book a 2017 Autumn Mini Session

To secure your date, a $25 non-refundable deposit must be paid when booking your appointment. The remainder of the session fee ($70) is due on the day of the session.

Total session cost is $95.  To book a session, visit the 2017 Autumn Mini Session webpage.


Because Mini Sessions are available on a limited basis, all Mini Session bookings are final and non-refundable. They cannot be rescheduled to a new date or time (*except in the case of bad weather). If you are unable to attend your Mini Session, you are welcome to gift or re-sell it to a friend or family member. *In the event of bad weather, photo sessions will be moved to a different date.
