Mini Sessions


What is a Mini Session?

A mini session is a shorter portrait session - my mini session is usually between 10 to 15 minutes and usually take place at different locations depending on the occasion and the promotion a specific venue may be offering at times. 


Why Mini Session?

Because it is FUN!  It's short and sweet - and almost hassle free.  Kids love it because it usually over before they know it.  And you get to keep memories of your children for each holidays or just fun theme.


What is the cost and what all included in the fee?

The cost for 10-15 minute mini session ranges between $25-$50.  The fee will always includes a goody bag for each child and at least (1) print and/or (1) digital file. I have the tendency to change things up each time I put together a mini session - depending on the trend and with all things considered. 


How big is the digital files we are getting with the session?

File's size for mini session will always be 2400x3600 @300dpi.  You will be able to use the file to make prints up to size 8x12. 


Can we buy more prints and digital files of images from mini session?

Absolutely!  Additional prints, digital files, and canvases are always available for purchase.  Digital files pricing includes print release for personal use.


What is a DVD Slideshow?

A DVD Slideshow is a new addition included in the fee of Mini Sessions priced $50 and up.  It is a slideshow of all images you see in your online gallery.  Because I capture so many pictures during the 10 minutes and sometimes it is hard for you to chose just one or two for prints,  or five for the CD, I want to you to at least have them for viewing and to share with your friends, and family.  You will not be able to print the images from the slideshow but again, if you really like all of the images, you do have the option to purchase the CD with print release. 


The session fee is due at booking - What if we cannot make it to the session?

Once you've booked your session, the session fee is non-refundable.  However, in case of an emergency or a family emergency, I will hold the fee for you and you may apply them as credit toward future mini sessions or a full on-location portrait session.  


Do we get to see the backdrop before the session date? How do we know what to wear? 

Yes and No. I always make my own backdrop for each mini session and usually provide sneak peeks on my Facebook Page but not always that I share the final backdrop with everyone. You normally would see it on the day of session.  I can always send you a personal peek or tell you the color I am using (usually fit the theme/ holidays that we are promoting for) so you may dress your children accordingly.   


Your mini session date doesn't work for our family schedule,  Do you offer an on-location mini session?

Yes, I do offer a private on-location mini session.  Please contact me for more information.


Last but not least, Why are your prints and digital pricing for Mini session is just a little less than your full session prints and digital pricing?

Simply because I treated all my sessions the same.  I pay the same amount of attention and spend the same amount of time editing and perfecting all images for every clients whether its  a 10-minute mini session or an amazing wedding party.  The only reason mini session prints and digital pricing is less is because its almost always done indoor in front of a backdrop, which always awesome, but still it doesn't give you as much of variety as the full on-location session.
