Fall Mini Sessions | 10.17.15 + 10.18.15

It might be warm out, but we are already thinking of our Fall mini sessions.  We are planning on having them October 17 & October 18.  We are debating two locations, but it depends on the interest for each location! We are planning on Oct 17th in Chelmsford, MA (Bartlett Park) & October 18th in Hudson, NH (Benson Park).

Fall Mini Sessions

Mini sessions are a perfect time to capture your kiddos being cute, get an updated photo for the grandparents or just to document a new stage in your child’s life.  They are also perfect for Senior Portraits and Maternity Sessions.

All sessions are booked first come, first serve. Please email us to select the time for your mini session from what is available.  We will send you a contract within 24 hours and take your $200 deposit to reserve your spot. Deposits are non-refundable, unless you or we are able to rebook your spot.

Frequently Asked Questions.

What is a mini session?

A mini session is a shortened version of our regular portrait session, without all the bells and whistles. Basically it allows us to get a few great family shots of your entire clan and then spend a little time getting breakout shots of just the kids, a few individual shots and perhaps a few candids. It is ideal for families who simply want some updated family shots for their holiday cards, Facebook, or frames. It is not ideal for those seeking lots of great candids or the in-between-the-moment shots or those who want outfit changes or a wide range of background looks.  With mini sessions, there simply is not enough time to capture a great deal of emotional images inside of 30 minutes – you really need a full hour plus for that. Mini sessions move quickly so it’s imperative you arrive a few minutes early (5-10) so that you and your family are ready to go.

What is the max number of people we can have for a Mini Session?

You can have up to 5 people max. {Sorry, no pets during the mini sessions, but they are welcome during regular sessions.} If you have 6 or more people, we would love to book you for our regular portrait sessions, which are 1 hour+.

Do we get all of the images on a disc from our session included?

This mini session includes 8 digital images that will be delivered via online download.  Additional prints and products will be available for purchase through your online gallery.

Will you provide props for our shoot, or can we bring them?

For mini sessions we wont be able to provide any props (chairs, lollipops, balloons, etc.) however you are more then welcome to bring any of these items if you want to incorporate them.  The location for the session includes benches, rocks, walkways and grassy areas making it perfect for sessions.

How much money can I save?

You can save up to 50% off our regular session pricing.  Because we save time by having a single location and have multiple clients booked the same day we are able to pass these savings on to you

I have more questions. How should I reach you?

Email us at and we are happy to answer any questions you have.

Book by September 10th (Andrew’s birthday) and get 20% off the purchase of any additional prints, holiday cards or digital files!

We had a great day of mini sessions a couple weeks ago!  We only offer mini sessions twice a year (in the Fall and in the Spring).  It’s a great opportunity to get updated photos of your family or your kiddos!  We had some fabulous families sign up for sessions.  Here are just some of our favorites from the day.  Make sure you like our facebook page if you want to be the first to know when our Spring Mini Sessions are happening!

Up first is the adorable Melone Family.

Christine+Mike | Maternity Session

We love being there to capture our couples milestones.  It starts with their wedding and then we get to capture their first pregnancy and continue with family photos for years to come.  We were so excited to catch up with Christine and Mike (we photographed their wedding in 2012…which I just realized never made the blog.  I’ll add that to the “what to blog next list”).

A couple weeks back we spent some time at Great Brook Farm State Park in Carlisle, MA .  It was a little chilly but we made the most of it.  Thank you Christine and Mike for allowing us to photograph you at this special time in your life!  We can’t wait to meet your little lady :)  Below are just a couple of our favorite images from their session.
