Do you want to book a mini session? Mini sessions are very common right before the holidays or during the spring/fall season. Many families want an updated photo for their holiday card. The idea of a mini session sounds alluring. However, I have found that clients who call for the mini sessions usually end up upgrading to a full session. This way they have the flexibility in timing so that they can get exactly the images they want. Below is a NYC family session, which includes the grandparents who were in town visiting.
Each session has its own advantages. Mini session is about half an hour long. They are offered under a smaller price point and are limited to one location. It includes beautiful images but a much smaller variety due to the time allotted. It could be a great option for something quick or for a family with older kids and adults.
Full sessions on the other hand offer a Design and Styling Consultation to plan your session, a full custom portrait session 1-2+ hours to accommodate any necessary breaks, and a larger variety of photos. A clothing guide and individual feedback is also included with your full session as well as the option for professional hair and makeup artistry.
While the mini session offers a smaller price point, parents may be concerned with the time limitation. Many feel they will not have enough time to be relaxed in front of the camera to capture their little ones in an authentic way. On the other hand, with a full session, you would have more flexibility and satisfaction that you got exactly the type of images you are looking for. However, the choice is yours. As a NYC Family Photographer, I offer options for both the full session and a shorter mini session depending on the circumstances.
The NYC family portrait session below included the parents, one month old newborn, an older sister and grandparents. The family chose a longer session because it offered them more flexibility with all the necessary breaks little kids require and the peace of mind that comes with knowing they will have enough time to get all the images they love. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and discuss which session may work better for you. Let’s be In Touch.
