Fall Mini FAQ

What if we're running late?

If your session is a mini, arriving early is super important. Your session is only 15-20 minutes long, and there is likely another family scheduled right after you. Part of my job is making sure we stay on track with time so set alarms, leave early and look at traffic on Waze because if you are 10 minutes late, your session time just got cut in half.


What happens if we can't make it?

If you let me know in advance that plans have changed, I will do my best to fit you in to another time slot if I have one available. A second option would be to apply your deposit to a full session as long as I have availability. If either of those options don't work, then unfortunately your deposit will be forfeited.


When can i expect to see my photos?

My normal turnaound time for completed galleries is about 2-3 weeks. However during fall busy season you can expect it to be more like 3-4 weeks. That is why I hold my last fall mini sessions in October. It ensures plenty of time to get you a beautiful gallery and for you to order card and/or gifts. I also try my best to get sneak peaks out to clients within a week of their session.


Can We have outfit changes?

Mini sessions are only about 15-20 minutes long and they are fast and furious. Because of this we do not have time for outfit changes. If this is very important to you, let's chat about a full session!


Can I book a mini session for my extended family?

Mini sessions are for immediate family only. 

You can book back to back sessions if you wish, but frankly it's more cost effective to book a full session for extended family. Two minis is $790 + tax and you get 10 images. A full session is $795 + tax, you get the entire gallery, plus a $100 print credit! Add in the fact that you get to choose your own date and location and this just feels like a no brainer!


Where do you RECOMMEND we buy cards/prints?

My online store is attached directly to your gallery and offers the highest quality holiday cards (including Christmas, Hanukah, New Years and Valentine's Day) prints, frames, canvases, etc. I honestly don't get anything printed anywhere else anymore because the quality is that good. Plus, one stop shopping is the best!

One item that isn't in the store, are my albums. They are an add-on item and customizable by color and size. Let me curate a beautiful album for you so you don't have to!
