all about mini sessions

Mini's are perfect for:

Families with young children who may not be able to last a whole session. This includes husbands who refuse to sit for a whole hour. Includes immediate family only, you can book two mini's together and get a couple combined shots though. 


Couples (dating, engaged, married, or in between), wanting photos for holiday cards, save the dates, and so on!


Pet sessions can be good for updating just a few shots of your pets. Not for on location or cherished companion sessions.

Business owners looking for a few fresh headshot updates to keep things recent for their biz.

Maternity mama's can be a good fit for mini sessions, especially if they are just looking for pregnancy announcements, gender reveal, or just a few shots of their growing belly. Not available for newborn sessions as it's just not enough time to get the shots you are looking wanting.

People who just don't have a lot of time to spare for a full photo session but really want to get their pictures updated.
