About Mini Sessions

 

Life is busy, and sometimes finding time for a full session is tricky - especially if kiddos are involved.  We’ve found that 25 minute mini sessions are great for families with busy schedules, so we offer these mini sessions throughout the year on select weekends at some of our favorite locations.   

 

Details:

- $200 booking fee

- 25 minutes of shooting

- a private online viewing gallery of 35 or so images

- a mobile app of 35 photos of your choice

- one full-resolution digital image of your choice

- the option to order additional digitals for $15.00 each and prints starting at $5 each

 

We announce our mini session dates first via email, so sign up for our newsletter to stay in the know!

You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram for upcoming mini session dates!

Early Morning!

We really believe family photography sessions can (and should!) be fun and stress-free.  We don’t believe in stiff posing, and we try to make the experience enjoyable and easy from start to finish.

Therefore, we don’t hold family sessions in popular locations in the middle of the day.  

 

There are two reasons for this timing:

The first is light - light in early morning is low, soft, and flattering.  Your pictures will be much more complimentary without the bright sun of mid-day casting shadows on faces.

The second reason is the crowds.  After 10:00 on weekend mornings the parks get crowded, which means we'll have to wait for the popular locations and might not get to as many spots.  It also means the shoot will be more stressful as we’ll be dodging people and trying to quickly sneak in shots in between crowds and other waiting photographers.

We know getting out the door early is a big ask with wee ones.  We have a wee one ourselves, so we understand that the struggle of nap times and wakeups is real.  But we *promise* that the one morning of getting up earlier will be worth it in the beautiful photos you’ll have for a lifetime.
