What do Mini Sessions include?
These seasonal sessions are announced three to six months in advance of the session date (you’ll want to join our newsletter to be one of the first to find out when and where the next one is!). Mini sessions are a punctuated approach to The Family Experience and offer 15 minutes of photography with 15 fully edited images presented in an online gallery (there is an option to purchase more images!). Perfect if you're looking for an updated wall portrait or to use on holiday cards or for special announcements. These sessions are booked in clusters of six or more on a specified date and location. Pricing begins at $325 and they always sell out fast!
Are Mini Sessions only for families?
We welcome families, high school seniors, couples (anniversary/engagement/maternity), and individuals! Families are limited to six people with the option to add-on additional time for larger families. Please inquire for information.
I am late or can’t make it to my Mini Session. Can I reschedule on a date that works better for me?
Unfortunately, no. Mini Sessions are non-refundable and non-transferable and due to high demand and very limited availability, rescheduling to a stand alone date is not possible.
If you are interested in booking a stand alone date, we would love to see you for a full-length session as a part of The Family Experience!
We’d like to book a session at the same time as our friends/family. Is this possible?
Mini Sessions are first-come/first-serve so we suggest you reach out as soon as possible to secure your sessions! We’ve done this many times and love it. It creates a sense of comfort and playfulness when you are surrounded by people you know and love.
How long after my session is finished will I receive my images?
When and where are Mini Sessions this year?

“With you, each and every time, we not only get photos, we get memories.
We always know there's going to be something pretty darn special.
I've said it before and will say it again, you make your clients feel completely at ease and bring out their best. I remember the post you wrote on your blog a couple months ago about being grateful that you get to do this... I don't know if you realize how many people are grateful that you do. Thank you for the beautiful family photos! We will treasure them alongside our engagement and wedding images.”
