All mini sessions are for family members that are immediate family. An additional time block can be booked for extended family.  All images turn around within 7-14 days.  After the session is over, you will be sent a number of images to choose the images that you have purchased.  Then I will edit those images and send you an updated gallery with the finished images.

Preparing for your Mini Session

Arrive Early

Arrive 5-10 minutes early to give yourself plenty of time for last minute issues that may arise.  Mini Sessions are scheduled back to back and any amount of time that you're late will directly impact the length of your session and number of images you may receive.

What To Wear

I know planning what to wear for your photo session can sometimes be stressful but I don't want you to stress!  When picking out your outfits, pick out the outfit for the most difficult to dress person first (almost always me!) and then plan everyone else's outfits around that one.  

Remember to plan colors and patterns as if you were dressing one whole person.  Too many patterns are really busy for the eye when looking at a group.  For my family, if I use a pattern, it's only for one person.  Check out this Pinterest LINK with some beautiful ideas for colors and  sample outfits for a whole family.

Bright reds, shiny reds and magentas, and oranges can often leave a color cast on the person's skin standing next to the person wearing it or the person wearing it.  There's no guarantee that I can edit that out.

Have fun!

Relaxed parents families = Beautiful portraits!

I may have a little pocket full of smarties to hand out to (aka bribe) age appropriate kids but if you prefer me not to, just let me know.


Remember if you are helping to make the kids smile to stand nice and close to the camera! 

Gallery & Delivery

All sessions will be delivered by an online gallery.  The digital images are high resolution and you will also have a print release to print where you prefer.  The wonderful thing about the gallery is it's also connected to my professional printing lab so that you can order prints through my lab if you prefer.  I will receive your order and then personally send the files and order to the lab to be mailed to your house.

Special theme minis will be delivered within 7 days.

Fall and Holiday Minis will be delivered within 7-14 days.

I will select the best out of the best and if there are more than the amount of images that come with your session then I will upload the total amount to the gallery and then you will favorite the digital images you want.
