4 Great Reasons to Book Mini Session



Ideal for those with busy schedules, Mini Sessions provide a streamlined and focused photoshoot experience. Everything is planned for you location, date and time. You just book it. Simple!

What are Mini Portrait Sessions?

Seasonal Family Tradition


Mini sessions often revolve around specific seasons or holidays, making them a perfect opportunity to create a cherished family tradition. The resulting photographs become a part of the family's seasonal celebrations and capture the evolving dynamics over the years.

Mini sessions are abbreviated photoshoots that are back to back, not longer than 20 min. They are offered at specific dates and locations chosen by the photographer. They are priced lower than full sessions but also offer fewer images, it’s a fast-paced photo shot focused more on classical portraits and some candid photos.

Testing the Waters


Who are the Mini Sessions For?

Mini sessions are ideal for those who are unsure about committing to a full-length session. Concerns about how young children or family members might behave in front of the camera can be alleviated by trying out a mini session first.

Mini sessions are designed to cater to a wide range of individuals, families, and groups, each with their own unique needs and preferences. They offer a convenient and efficient way to capture moments and memories without the time commitment of a full photography session. Mini sessions are particularly well-suited for the following groups:

Low Expectations, High Enjoyment


Mini sessions allow parents to approach the photoshoot with low expectations, focusing on the enjoyment of the experience rather than the pressure of obtaining a perfect shot. This mindset often results in more natural and genuine interactions.

Trial Sessions

People who have never experienced a professional photoshoot before may opt for a mini session as a trial run. It allows them to see how the process works and get comfortable in front of the camera.

Quick Turnaround


Busy Professionals

Professionals who have limited time due to work commitments find mini sessions convenient. They can quickly get high-quality images for their branding and marketing needs without taking up too much of their schedule.

With mini sessions, clients can enjoy a quicker turnaround for their edited images. Since the sessions are shorter and result in a smaller number of photos, photographers can often deliver the final images promptly, allowing clients to enjoy and share their pictures sooner.

Versatile Use of Photographs


Families with Young Children or Maternity

Mini sessions are ideal for families with young children who may have limited attention spans or might take time to warm up to the camera. The shorter duration helps capture candid and natural moments even if the children are shy or unpredictable.

The images captured during mini sessions are versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether it's updating social media profiles, creating personalized holiday cards, or decorating the home, the photos are a versatile asset that brings joy year-round.

Candid Shots for Shy Children


Couples and Engagements

Couples looking to commemorate special occasions, such as engagements or anniversaries, can benefit from mini sessions. These sessions capture the essence of their relationship in a short and meaningful way.

Children, especially those under 4 years old, can sometimes be shy or take time to warm up to new situations. Mini sessions provide a relaxed environment where photographers can capture candid moments as children gradually become comfortable with the process.

Individuals and Portraits

Mini sessions are also suitable for individuals who want to update their professional headshots, social media profiles, or personal portfolios in a short amount of time.
