What do I get?
Your mini session fee gives you your 15 minute photoshoot (Mums and kids only) with 3 high resolution images that you can choose form an online gallery. If you love them all and can’t choose there is the option to purchase all images from the session for $150 (~20 images), individual digitals or prints and other products. The images you will see online are not suitable for printing and will have a watermark across them.
How does it work?
Submit your details to book a time slot. You will need to show up 15 minutes prior to your session, sessions run back to back and will finish at the set time even if you are late, no additional time will be added. If you show up past your set time you will forfeit your booking. Sessions are strictly non-refundable.
When are the time-slots?
Time-slots will run in the afternoon from 2.30pm-5.30pm There are a minimum number of sessions available. If demand is high more time slots may be released. You will be notified of your time slot via email.
How much goes to the kinder?
$30 of the $50 fee goes to the kinder.
What should we wear?
Whatever is comfortable and makes you feel like you! An outdoors mini session will reflect you together in a comfortable and natural way.
I will have a picnic blanket that may be used for some sitting options however if you would prefer your own or have quilt or rug that you would prefer to use please bring it along. No other props please.
How do I keep my kids happy?
The benefit of a mini session is that it’s quick. Your kids don’t have to sit still long and we’ll move around and make it fun. If you are relaxed and keep the pressure low your kids will be calm, but if bubbles or bribes are going to help your kids, go for it. Feed them first! And certainly don’t feel like your kids have to be looking at the camera the whole time.
I have a current working with children’s check, am a mum to a five and three year old and am used to working with kids of all ages. Yes, you can bring your teenagers!
How many people can be in the photo?
Mothers day mini-sessions include you (the Mother) and your children. No pets due to the time limitations. These mini sessions aren’t for families or cousin groups. If you would like to book a full family session please contact me.
