Mini - Sessions
At Reed Through The Lens Photography we offer both themed mini sessions or non themed mini sessions.
A Mini-Session is a shorter version of my regular session. You also receive less images. Groups of over 5 people will include an additional $15.00 per extra person. Session sharing is not permitted, additional fees will apply.
These sessions are 15-20 minutes long and include 12-15 edited images.
These sessions are to be taken on a Monday through Thursday ONLY unless I am running a mini session day (meaning back to back sessions) on a Saturday or Sunday. Otherwise it will need to be taken on a Monday through Thursday.
If you are booking a mini session and have children. Please keep in mind the that your time frame will not be extended due to lack of cooperation. I usually place a timer on to keep track of time. We will capture what is taking place within that time frame.
Mini - Session(Non-themed) - 150.00
Themed mini sessions prices will depend on the set-up. Check out our facebook page throughout the year to see what themed mini-sessions are currently available!
Please read below about our mini Sessions.
Mini sessions are short and sweet and only give us so many minutes of time to take photos. We are working in a limited time frame.
Please be on time! Please keep in mind your session is likely just before or just after another family’s session. Please plan accordingly, check the location and driving directions. Please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early, before your session time, ready to be photographed (meaning having your kids in their clothing, hair fixed, face wiped, etc) Sessions will be booked back to back so if you are late, you will only have the remaining time to complete your session which will result in even fewer images.) Your session time begins promptly at your scheduled time and will end 10 minutes later. Because sessions are scheduled back to back, I am not able to extend the length of your session in the event that you are not present or ready at your session start time.
These sessions are very fast paced, so please keep that in mind if you are hoping for milestone portraits of very young children (in other words, unpredictable little people!). I am not able to extend the length of a mini session if your little ones are uncooperative. (even when I really want to).
The deposit that was paid to hold your spot is non transferable, non refundable, no cash back value given, no exchanges for another photo session and no credit given.
When you arrive: I will likely be working with the client booked before you when you arrive. Please wait patiently until I am done.
Parking may be limited if these sessions are done in our studio. I currently drive a silver van. The first client can park behind me, then the next client can park on the other side of the driveway.
Keep in mind that mini sessions only give us 15 minutes of time together. If your child takes a while to warm up to new people a mini session may not be ideal for your family.
Can I bring extra outfits?
Only one outfit is allowed per mini session, as each session is exactly 10 minutes. Please make sure that clothing fits. If wearing straps please make sure that they fit, as we will not be responsible for falling straps in the photos. Need more time for outfits? Check our our full packages, which are 100% customized for you (and your family’s) style!
Can I purchase a mini session as a gift?
Absolutely! Photography is the perfect gift. Message us to purchase a gift certificate. Mini sessions make wonderful gifts for families and couples! Note that gift certificates are non-refundable upon purchase.
