Although I guide families through various prompts and poses, feel free to interact naturally with your family and have fun. During the session, we will prioritize family, sibling, and/or individual child shots. Although I'll capture a few posed group shots, the emphasis is on playfulness over rigid poses.
Above all, I want your family to unwind and enjoy! This session is about capturing your smiles and making the time in front of the camera fun. It's all about authentically capturing your family as you are and bringing out the bright eyes, the best smiles, and the most fun of moments in front of the camera.
Specific locations/addresses and directions will be emailed to you two weeks before your session date.
Fall Mini Sessions are limited and reserved on a first come, first serve basis.
Once they're gone, they're gone! We will not be offering outdoor mini sessions again this year so snag them while you can.

Are you a dog-friendly photographer?
Answer: Absolutely! If you feel comfortable bringing your dog(s) to the park around other dogs, we are more than willing to work he or she into as many photos as you like. We do ask that you bring a leash along with a small bag of treats to help achieving his or her attention. Here are a few pictures of some of the dogs we met last mini session season! :)
What happens if it rains?
Answer: Sometimes, during October and November, rain can creep up unaware in the forecast. If this occurs, we will reschedule sessions within a 12-hour notice. Both locations we have chosen do have a covering in case of a sudden downpour. We will try our best to reschedule sessions to the following day or weekend, depending on our availability.
How do we access our pictures when they are finished?
Answer: After your session is complete, we send the entire album back via email link. This will take you to an online gallery where you can select up to fifteen photographs from the session.
How long until we receive our gallery?
Answer: We strive our hardest to have all galleries delivered within two weeks of the shoot date. All families that are photographed during our mini session dates are delivered on the same day as everyone else. Unfortunately, we cannot offer rush edits for these galleries.
Can we purchase more than the fifteen photographs included?
Answer: Of course. We encourage buying your entire album for an additional $50. We usually stay in contact after the album has been sent back to see what your family would like to do.
Do you work with very large families?
Answer: Yes! We love large families, especially when they include many generations! We have been family photographers for nearly ten years now and have seen all sorts of family dynamics. However, for mini sessions, we recommend booking either two time slots back-to-back or a full family session (one hour). This allow more time for moving from spot to spot and capturing the very best of moments. Here are a few large families we photographed last mini session season.
