What is a Mini session? I hold around 3-4 mini sessions a year. Each one is for a certain time of year or milestone. From back to school mini session, creek stomping, holiday card photos to B&W only sessions, mini sessions are 30 minutes of shooting with limited images included. These type of sessions are best for existing clients. I already have a relationship with them and know how I work. Kids don't need to warm up to me, we have that already established from previous sessions.
That doesn't mean a mini can't work for new clients. If you know your family and know they adjust to new things a mini session is great!
Even though we only have 30 minutes or less doesn't mean that you are getting any less of my talents. Even if you are a new client and are just wanting a quick session we can make some magic happen. I get a lot of new clients from my fall mini sessions. Once they see their images we schedule a regular session for the following year. They can't choose the limited images that come with a mini session, want them all.
