I have already been getting calls and emails about this year’s holiday card mini sessions, so I wanted to go ahead and get the information out as soon as possible. Last year’s mini sessions booked up really quickly and I ended up adding sessions on two additional dates and still had to turn people away, so if you are interested in a session for this year, make sure to book early while there are still openings available.
Availability Update as of 9/6/12 at 9:55am: I have sent contracts out for all 5 November 3rd sessions. I will be starting a waiting list for that date in the event of cancellations. I still have openings for October 14 and November 7th. Thanks to all my amazing clients who contacted me so quickly for mini sessions!
I only offer mini sessions twice a year (Mother’s Day and Christmastime), so these will fill up very quickly. Mini sessions are ideal for families who want beautifully printed cards with a few great professional photos of their family to choose from. Minis offer less variety and options compared to regular portrait sessions, but they include discounted holiday pricing and no minimum orders. Outdoor mini sessions are best suited for families with 2-6 people and children six months and older.
New for 2012: This year, I’m adding an additional option for mini sessions. If you do not want family photos but you are interested in photos of your baby or children only, I have opened up an additional day for mini sessions at the studio. These sessions are available for children two months and older. Mini sessions are perfect for moms who want an updated photo of their baby/babies without investing in a full length session. These would also be a fantastic holiday gift for grandparents!
Reserving Your Session: A session contract and your full session fee ($161.25 including tax) is required to reserve your holiday mini session package. When you contact me for availability, please list your first and second choice for session times.
Ordering: Your 10 proofs will be available to view within two weeks of the session. At that time, you will choose your desk prints, view holiday card options, and choose your holiday cards or digital file. At this time you will also have the option to order additional prints or products at a 10% discount. Prints, holiday cards, and digital images will be available for pickup within 1-2 weeks, so you will have plenty of time to send out holiday cards and wrap those prints for Christmas gifts.
If the weather is bad the day of the mini sessions, we will reschedule for the next available date that works for both photographer and client.
