What should we expect from our mini-session? 30-mins of fun! We will play around the garden, smell the flowers, peak in the beautiful gazebo and have a good time. As always with my photos, the sessions are not full of set-up, posed shots. Please feel free to bring your favorite game or activity, a picnic lunch or a yummy snack!
How are mini-sessions different from a full photo shoot? A full photo shoot is usually an hour to two hours in length and I come to you or we decide together on a location. Mini-sessions are held at a specific location and are only 30-mins in length. You receive 10 photos in an online password protected gallery, where as with a full shoot you receive about 40 - 50 in an online password protected gallery. You also get a free 8x10 and two digital prints (of your choice) from a mini-session - great value! As with any session you are able to place orders online and I am happy to provide as much assistance in ordering (and decision making) as you would like
Do you have a limit on how many children or family members can be involved in a mini-session? Families with more than two children will pay an additional $25 per child for a mini-session. If you have more than two children it might be a good idea to book two mini-sessions in a row.
What if it rains or the weather is bad on the day we have scheduled our mini-session? In case of bad weather the mini-sessions will be rescheduled
What should we wear? The most important thing is that you are comfortable and that you can play and sit on the grass comfortably. Bright and deep tones are always a nice choice for clothing. Bright colors like pinks, yellows and blues really pop against the green grass. White and green clothing would not be optimal. Stay away from clothing with logos, big designs and or photos/pictures. Textured fabrics such at denim, knits, linen and eyelet dresses photograph beautifully. I usually tell families not to wear fully matching outfits, coordinating your clothing and colors looks excellent, but not fully matching.
