Hello, all! As I write this blog post it is currently 14 degrees outside and snow is forecasted to start falling in T-minus 23 minutes. This, after having already had a “surprise” storm this past week that left us with a half of foot of snow. Now, I love living in New England. I love everything about it, including the weather. Even today’s weather. But I know a lot of people out there are looking forward to SPRING! So, in anticipation of warmer weather, and birds returning north, and flowers blooming forth (hey, accidental rhyme!), I am delighted to announce our SPRING MINI SESSIONS. Check out the promo cards below!
There will be two separate days for mini sessions — and each day will feature morning and afternoon appointment times. The first day (Saturday, March 29) is all about in-studio, Spring and Easter-themed awesomeness, including one or two special guest stars: bunnies! That’s right, real bunnies. I’m not sure who is going to be more excited, me or the kids. A special shout-out to the women who were kind enough to lend us their beautiful and docile bunnies! The second day (Saturday, April 5), we will be at the ever-gorgeous Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm in Newbury. Again, there will be morning and afternoon slots available.
To book your spot: call me at 978.994.4998 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mini session fee includes a 25-minute session, 8 digital images, a Facebook timeline photo, and a photo release. For those of you looking for more, check out the add-ons below…perfect gifts for Easter, Mother’s Day, and even Father’s Day!
What is a Mini Session?
Mini-sessions are a good way to get a few images for cards, social media, or prints for frames or gifts. Your mini session will typically last about 25 minutes, during which time I will capture a few shots of siblings or families together, and spend a little time getting individual shots. Mini sessions are not a good fit for beach shoots, or for getting candid images, or for those who want outfit changes, or scenery changes. Mini sessions move quickly so it’s important to arrive 5-10 minutes early.
What is the max number of people we can have for a Mini Session?
You can have up to 5 people. Additional people can be photographed if space allows for an additional fee of $125.
How do I book a session?
Space is very limited. All sessions are booked first come, first serve. Call me or email me and we will set up a time. There is a $50 deposit to hold your spot. Deposits are non-refundable, unless we rebook.
How do we get our digital images?
Your digital images will be shared with you on an online gallery, or DVD, or flash drive, or sometimes e-mail. Your choice! This is something we will talk about when you book.
Who picks the images we get?
For mini sessions, I pick the best of the best from your images, color correct them, and make them ready for you. If you want to see the rest of your images from the mini session, you can come and visit me! No, seriously, schedule an appointment so we can review the images and you can purchase additional images if you like.
What happens if the weather is bad on the day of an outside, on-location mini session?
In the case of cloudy, overcast days or if there is light rain — the on-location, outdoor mini session will take place as planned. Bring a fun umbrella, or wellies, and get ready to have fun. These can be really beautiful portraits. In case of inclement weather, you can expect the mini session will take place on a rain date or on the same day at my home studio.
**In the case of these spring mini sessions, if there is inclement weather on Saturday, April 5, the mini sessions will take place at my home studio. No bunnies scheduled that day.**
We want to book, but can’t make any of those dates. Are you available on other dates not listed above?
I might be. Call me and let’s chat!
What’s a storyboard?
Good question. It is a trio of images printed together, side-by-side, on white fine art photo paper, which is then mounted to foam board backing. Perfect for framing, or for propping up on a picture ledge. Beautiful, yet affordable presentation piece. Call me for details.
What’s a grandmother’s book?
A grandmother’s book is a 10-page 8-inch square book that features images and beautiful quotes about children and love. This is a very special gift to be treasured. Call me for details.
