Mini Sessions are quick, 10-15 minute sessions that are A LOT of fun and a great way to capture family moments at an affordable price! However, due to the nature of these sessions, please do not be late- in fact it’s best to come at least 5-10 minutes early to insure everyone will be ready to go! Mini Sessions are not for everyone~ If you have a child or children who take a lot of time to warm up, you may want to book a regular family session to insure no time or money is wasted. These mini sessions are quick and are booked back to back so there isn’t a lot of extra wiggle room. THANKS SO MUCH! Please contact me if you’re interested in a mini session to find out times & availability or sign up on my mailing list to receive information on minis and specials.
For ALL SESSIONS- the best photos of your session will be chosen and edited by the photographer. Turnaround time for a final gallery is typically two weeks unless it is peak season ( Aug. – Dec.) it may take longer. If you request a proofing gallery with the option to choose your images, an additional fee of $100 will be applied to your session and you will have a deadline of two weeks to make your final choices. Also, additional images will be available to purchase at that time if you choose to. Each additional image is $20. Once I receive your chosen photos, it will take up to two weeks for the final gallery to be edited and sent. Any additional photos chosen must be paid for before the final gallery of images is sent.
CANCELLATIONS: 24 hours notice is required for all cancellations and the photographer must be notified through email or phone. Failure to do so will result in the forfeit of your deposit.
