MINI SESSION FLOW
Woot woot - The day has arrived! Please to arrive to the mini-session location between 10-15 minutes beforehand, just to make sure everyone is fresh and ready to have fun! We’ll play games, run around, and, before you know it (and before you probably even realize it!), 20-25 minutes will have flown by!
Within 48 hours of your session, you will receive a sneak peek of a couple images from your session. Your entire collection will be carefully processed and available within 14 days from your session date.
Before going any further, please please take the time to look over my portfolio on my WEBSITE HERE or my INSTAGRAM HERE. My style is not considered traditional - I prefer raw, honest emotion over perfectly posed families, I will try to capture the special bonds between you and your loved ones and promise to make you have a lot of fun. Please be 100% sure that this is what you would like. Contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may call/txt 916-502-3549
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where should we meet you?
For this year’s mini sessions we will meet at Ancil Hoffman Park in Carmichael, CA (6700 Tarshes dr Carmichael ca 95608) there is $10 park entrance fee, there is a booth where you can pay cash and a machine to pay for parking with cc. When you enter the park keep following the road past San Lorenzo way, there will be a parking lot on your left. Once arrive please send us a text, we will meet you at your scheduled time.
When should I arrive?
Our mini sessions are booked back to back. It is important that you arrive a 10 - 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time so that we can spend the full amount of allotted time with your family. Late arrivals will receive the remaining time in their session, and arrivals order 20 minutes late will forfeit their session (exception made only for emergencies!)
What should we wear?
We know figuring out what to wear is one of the most stressful parts of booking a session, and we have to say, it is important. The right outfit elevates an image from so so, to one that looks timeless, coordinated and intentional. (PS. I must admit that a flowy maxi dress never disappoints, so if you’re stuck give one a chance!)
I am interested in more formal portraits. Is this an option for my family?
Yes. I am not opposed to doing more formal portraits by any means, but mostly I want you to have fun and capture you and your loved ones having fun and interacting with one another. If formal portraits are something that is a high priority, let me and we will set aside a portion of the session time (roughly 5-7 minutes) and create those for you!
I’m a little anxious about my little ones being in their best behavior for our session, what should I do?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE REMEMBER THAT every little one is different, and we ask that you think honestly about your child and their personality to ensure our best chances of success. Mini sessions are a wonderful option for short attention spans, and for getting just the right amount of images to capture various milestones. With that said, kiddos who are very shy, slow to warm up or exceptionally active, etc., are typically not great candidates for these sessions. Many parents with little ones that fit this description feel that a full session would be way too long, and go with a mini session instead. Contrary to that belief, full sessions are not a solid hour of continued shooting. Many times, a large chunk of the session is spent getting your child warmed up, acclimated, and ready to be captured at their best. Full sessions also involve advanced planning re: time, location, etc. to ensure what is best for your little one. In order to avoid an unsuccessful session, we appreciate you thinking about these points in advance. I’m always happy to answer any questions and point you in the right direction!
