Family Mini Sessions

It’s that time of year again! Aka photographer’s busy season! Fall is when all of my portrait clients merge and one day I’m at a small private school doing school portraits and the next I’m having toddlers chase me at a park…while I’m taking adorable family portraits. I’ve already had a few inquiries asking if I’m hosting family mini-sessions so I thought I’d explain a bit about what family minis are, what people have come to expect, and what I offer my family clients.

What Are Family Mini Sessions?

Family mini-sessions are usually a set date where the photographer books multiple families back to back. When I used to do minis it would be 3-8 families back to back. I would pick a new location every fall so that my repeat family clients would have something new for their backdrops and it was always fun seeing the kiddos grow year after year.

What People Expect From Family Mini Sessions

I have found over the years that people have come to book family mini-sessions as a quick and affordable way to get family portraits every year. And I love that! I also do this with my family when we can’t find the time for an entire session, or we just really need that one great pic for our holiday cards.

What I Offer As Family Mini Sessions

The Simple Family Session is just like a mini session but you’ll get something extra! It’s the same amount of time as a mini session, 20-30min, the same price as a mini session, and for a bonus you get to pick from my favorite locations! I know a few families that love coming to me every year but can’t always make it on the one day so we will work together to find the best date and time for your family. This means we can accommodate nap schedules too cause I remember how hard that phase was. I thought this would be a fun way to give families more out of their yearly mini-sessions.

I like to help all my family clients to prepare for their shoot. You’ll get my How to Prep Kids for a Photoshoot Guide, a What to Wear Guide to help pick out everyone’s outfits, and reminder emails from me for when and where your session will be.

Limited Edition Holiday Sessions

Last year my studio created a gorgeous holiday set and it’s coming back in November!!! Though props and sets change all the time in the studio so I’d guess things will be slightly different. These limited edition sessions will be at the studio in NW Portland and priced the same as the Simple Family Session. If you know you want to grab a spot, reach out because there will only be 4 spots that day!
