FAQ:

“What is a “mini” session as compared to a regular session?”
Mini sessions are short and sweet and perfectly ideal for the holiday season. Since we don’t have as much time as a normal session, there is much less of the in between fun that I like to catch unfortunately. But I still try to have as much variety and natural in the moment feel as possible even though we are condensing everything down to 30 mins.

“How many photos will I get?”
I don’t have an exact number. I know most photogs pick out their fav 25 photos for example. That’s probably the most realistic and practical way to do things, but I just have a hard time narrowing it down. Plus I always wonder if I’m deleting what could possibly be your favorite photos…so I leave them all in the collection minus duplicates and blinks. A normal mini session tends to be around 85-150 historically speaking. But I make no promises on exact numbers. We shoot the whole time, and you end up with a lot.

“Will you take photos of everyone together or individually?”
I definitely get lots of  big group shots, but then we do break outs so let’s say if there is a family of mom, dad, and kids…then I will get the whole family group shot, each kid, all the kids, and just mom and dad. Of course we will fit in as much as possible with as much variety as possible. =)

“Will you have props for the session?”
I haven’t decided exactly what we will be doing because I haven’t 100% decided on a place. I can tell you that I like variety, and I like each part of the shooting process to be in a different view to break things up. So I doubt I will have “props” but more like chairs or a love seat. Please feel free to bring anything sentimental to your family, and we will try to incorporate it.

“My kids are crazy, and my husband hates pictures.”
I have lots of crazy nieces and nephews that I adore…and I’ve been a photographer forever and have seen and done it all. We definitely bribe good smiles and fun times with candy =) And yes, all men hate pictures. I promise I’m a get it done quickly type which the guys always like. And I’ll let you do the bribing with them…

“Why do you only have a few time slots available for these mini sessions?”
I’m a workaholic, and I’m exhausted during wedding busy season (which is of course the season for fall photos), so I can only do so much. I really try to add on dates later if at all possible just because I want to fit everyone in.

“Will my prints, cards, and images on the disc be edited?”
Yes, I edit everything for the “pop” of my style. I won’t do major edits like hair or braces, etc. (but you can add this on for a fee if it’s super important to you)

“This sounds great, how do I sign up and pay”
Email me to set up your time slot. (quickly b/c they book up fast) and pay ahead of time with check by mail. I don’t do Paypal b/c they take a cut. I don’t want to give a cut away. I already pay a ton in taxes.  Don’t forget to add 7% sales tax to the session fee.

I’m sure there are a ton of questions you are asking so just email me the rest =)
