Simply put... a Mini Session is a short and sweet portrait session! Locations are either in Los Angeles, San Gabriel Valley, or Orange County. They're efficient! No more than 15-20 minutes long, its a quick pit stop in the middle of a busy weekend or chaotic schedule. 

Its perfect when all you want are a handful of images to frame, a few to feature on your holiday cards, or you just can't imagine your child wanting to sit for any longer than 20 minutes. It's great for quick family portraits, maternity sessions, child portraits, smash cake shoot, or even professional head shots! 

My priority during mini sessions is always to first get the entire group in photos together. IF time permits, then I branch off to get other pairs and combinations of people (i.e mother / daughter, just siblings etc.) For fairness and respect to every booked time slot, timing is strict.  Clients must arrive early to ensure we can start & end on time. If you are late, you will forfeit your session & your non-refundable retainer (reservation fee).

Do you have children that might benefit from a more flexible timeframe to warm up and get comfortable? Or maybe you just love the idea of more focused attention and detail to more combinations or photos of the members in your group. If this sounds most desirable to you, click below to learn more.
