Mini Sessions

A mini-session is a small version of a full session.

They are held as a day-long event at one location.


  • Minis are quick sessions and are non-refundable.
  • All sessions are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.You must pay for the session in order to reserve a time slot.
  • Fall and Holiday Minis sell out every year. If the time does not appear on the booking link, it has been booked.
  • Our mini Sessions are lifestyle/candid sessions where we will capture real moments and reactions.
  • Traditional photos looking at the camera can't be guaranteed with these shorter sessions. If interested in a traditional session please contact us for a standard full sessions.
  • Mini Sessions aren’t just for families with kids. You can book with your partner, for yourself, dogs or besties.
  • It’s important to us that our clients understand and embrace our candid style of the photography prior to booking so expectations can align.
  • Our focus is to really capture natural interactions.
  • All Session locations will be emailed the week of your session.
  • Remember to have fun! This is a session meant to document this moment in your life. These are precious memories.


Lifestyle Mini Sessions are all about connections and those candid moments. During sessions we use prompts to create real reactions.

**Traditional images with everyone looking at the camera can be obtained through one of our standard full family sessions. These full sessions can be a mixture of lifestyle and traditional with their longer portrait time being a benefit and outfit changes.
