MINI SESSIONS 2017

Last December, I hosted my first weekend of mini sessions, and had such a blast! I was getting tons of requests for family photos for holiday cards and was literally running out of time/weekends in which to accommodate everyone. This ended up being a GREAT solution. I loved it, and I think my clients loved it too. Why? 

-Mini sessions are only 20 minutes as opposed to 40-60 minutes (wayyyy better for little kids!)
-Fewer options - sometimes we can be paralyzed by too many choices, in this case posing and grouping. A shorter time frame forces us all to focus and get excellent shots in a little window. 
-Budget-friendly!

I had a great time thinking through details, especially things that would make it fun for the kids. I brought snacks and candy (bribery always works!) in my kids' little red wagon, with balloons attached so that I could just be a mobile photo station in Forest Hills Park and allow people to find me quickly. I had some goofy Christmas props, and every family got to take home a special Christmas ornament.

I will definitely do more of this this fall, probably in late October or early November, to give you ample time to get your cards ordered for Christmas. Stay tuned for more info!
