Mini-Sessions: What to Expect

Mini sessions are shorter than a normal photo shoot and are perfect if you are looking for a small number of professional family portraits captured in a relaxed and fun style. These sessions are scheduled to last 30 minutes but may only take 15-20 minutes if we get enough great images in that time!

Who are they suitable for?

Mini sessions are fantastic for families (5 max.). We'll be able to capture some lovely shots of you all together and of your children individually. 

Feeling romantic? A mini session can work really well as a mini couples' shoot too!

Where will we go?

All sessions will be held at a beautiful outdoor location. Exactly where really depends on the time of year; the best location can be decided between us. 

What will we do?

My style is very relaxed. I will direct you into some gentle poses but will largely just photograph you walking, talking or playing just as you are. Previous clients have been amazed at how fun their shoot was and how they soon forgot about the camera (see testimonials)! I have years of experience with children and babies so there's no need to feel anxious if yours are having a bad day.

What should we wear?

Generally, whatever you feel comfortable in! A little colour coordination can work very well for family group shots if you can arrange that. Clothes to match the season also help to create strong images and memories for you to look back on. So bring on the snuggly wooly hats and scarves come Autumn/Winter!

What if it rains?

We can't always rely on the great British weather! If the forecast is set for rain, the sessions will be rescheduled for a mutually convenient date as soon as possible.

What will happen after the shoot?

Your own private preview gallery with around 20 professionally edited images will be available for viewing within 2 weeks. You can then choose your favourites to order as prints or digital downloads. You and your friends/family will have access to the gallery using a password; you are granted full printing rights to any digital files purchased so that you can share and print as you choose. 

Any prints or wall art pieces will be delivered directly to your door!
