So what is the difference between a mini session and a full session? Well…a mini is about getting a handful of images you might want for your Holiday gift giving and cards. A full session is geared around capturing the individuality of each child. It involves going on location, clothes changes, and time spent interacting. A mini cannot take the place of a full session. The goals are not the same. Mini sessions are 20 minutes with 8-10 images. I’ve done them in the past and kind of tried to fit full session into these little time slots…it doesnt work. At least not on my end!

I do, however, think there is a place for the mini sessions. As much as I love a full session, come the end of the year, we all want a shot of all the kids together. Maybe one with the family and the family dog! So, with this in mind, I’ve opened up two days for these 20 minute mini sessions. Thursday, November 1st and Saturday, November 3rd. Thursday’s sessions will begin at 9am and appointments will be available until 5pm. Saturday’s sessions will begin at 1pm and will be available until 5pm. Sessions will be held at my home with the set in the barn, with a typicall barn setting. Studio lights will be set up so we won’t have to worry about  the weather or the lighting. Sessions will be 20 minutes and you must schedule your appointment in advance. Don’t be early, and dont’ be late! When available times are filled then the mini session will be retired until next year!
