Family sessions are a great time to capture a moment in time for your families. Over the years that I have photographed family sessions I have learned quite a bit about the optimal amount of time that kiddos can last, which is why I mostly off family mini sessions.
Mini sessions are 20 minute sessions that give us just the right amount of time to snag those beloved family memories. I offer these once a quarter (twice in Q4 for holidays) and I keep my email list updated on opening dates! I still take on about 10 full family sessions per season, so reach out before the spots are filled.
Check out more information below and if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at any time! I cannot wait to see you and the fam!

A mini session is a 20 minute session at a designated time and location seasonally. All of your best images are included in your online gallery which you can share with family and friends. Prior to your session you'll be sent specific travel and meet up instructions (you'll already know the location) along with a complimentary family style guide! This guide will help you best prepare for your session.
The best way to find out when mini sessions are happening is by joining our email list! We make quarterly announcements for when dates are coming up so that YOU have a chance to snag a spot before everyone else. The email list gets an exclusive 24 hour heads up on dates and signups. You'll be able to signup directly from the booking link, allowing you to chose the best time for you and your family.
Ah! Remember that family guide I mentioned? This guide will talk about wardrobe, dressing for the season, bribes (snacks) to bring for kiddos and how to get the most out of your session! My best advice is to come in with expectations of "real images". We'll totally get the "on the fireplace mantel' shot, but I want to photograph how goofy your kids (or spouse) are! Let's have fun and leave perfection at the door.
It is critical that you are on time to your session. Mini session days are stacked with sessions back to back and we will not have the ability to bump everyone out. Whatever time is left in your session if you arrive late is all the time you will get to shoot. SO! Best advice, plan ahead and arrive extra early with comfy clothes and snacks to wait.
Final galleries are delivered 1-2 weeks after your session so you'll have optimal time to send out cards, print photos for gifts or share with family and friends. You'll be able to order prints or wall art right from your gallery, making updating your home super easy and straight forward.
Oh man! Kiddos do NOT last long, am I right? I have found that 20 is the PERFECT amount of time before kids get irritable or squirmy or start throwing those oh-so-pleasant tantrums. Trust me, we can make magic in 20 minutes.
Mini session days are days where I am fully invested in you, your family and capturing the best moments. The majority of my year is filled with wedding clients, so this gives me a great space to focus on my families and give them the best experience, timely delivery and great communication.
That being said, if you want a more custom experience with more wiggle room, please reach out for a full family session. These are a larger investment but it can give you a fuller experience. Reach out for more information for full family sessions.
