Preparing For Your Mini Session

Fall Mini Sessions are back this year! For those of you who don’t know, we usually offer mini sessions twice a year: in the Spring and Fall. It’s a great opportunity for families to refresh their wall spaces with new images for the season.

Preparing For Your Mini Session

Arrive Early

Mini Sessions run back-to-back. Arriving at least 10 minutes earlier can help you prepare for the session and ease into the moment. If you’re doing a family session, these few minutes can help you round the troops and make sure everyone is ready. Make sure that everyone is well rested and fed before your session, as that influences the session as well.

Plan Your Outfits

The clothing you choose directly impacts your images, causing to highlight who you and your loved ones are or creating the biggest distraction. Because of this, we ask our clients to wear what makes them feel comfortable. If they feel comfortable and beautiful, that confidence will shine through. We also often suggest our clients to use color schemes and tones that work together, and to take inspiration from the location we will utilize as their backdrop. Since we tend to utilize natural light, most likely I will use a natural environment to highlight your family. Nature already points to colors that we can draw inspiration from. Begin planning with the most difficult person to dress and coordinate everyone else accordingly. Your portraits will ultimately hang in your home and we want to make sure we capture your personalities and style in a cohesive, timeless manner.

During The Session

When you work with a professional, you can rest easy knowing that we will get your flattering angles and make even the worst of meltdowns (Yes, they happen 99% of the time) a beautiful photograph. We have tools, experience and a game plan that will make the session a success. Just because a Mini Session is less time than a full session it doesn’t mean that it is less quality.

Expect To Have Fun

Happy people create the most beautiful portraits! We know that if your session involves kids, you are stressing about their behavior and micro managing them. We’re here to tell you that your only job in my session is to be happy and have fun! Leave the kids to us. Meltdowns may happen but kids always bounce back if you keep the session moving. You’ll be surprised when you see the gallery and all you see is happy, loving faces. Besides, who can be upset when the session is short? These session happen to be Dad’s favorites for a reason!
