Mini Sessions

      Christmas minis are a chance to remember what it’s like to be with your kids right now – how they touch your face and how they scrunch up their nose and pull silly faces. It’s a quick shoot that’s super easy for your kids and you!

      All I ask is that you be present with each other and I can make some beautiful images of you with your kids that you will treasure. If you are interested in a longer family session, please get in touch.

      7th December, 5.10pm-7.50pm

      What Do I Get?

      Your mini session fee gives you your 15 minute photoshoot with 3 high resolution images that you can choose from 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. There is no obligation to purchase anything.

      How Does it Work?

      Submit your details to book a time slot. You will need to show up 10 minutes prior to your session and wait near the playground, sessions run very close together 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 early evening. 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 or through the booking service.

      Where is it?

      Settlers Orchard Reserve on Croydon Hills Drive, Croydon Hills. This is a quiet, local reserve with lots of varied spaces.
      There is a playground with swings, a pond, walking paths, bushland and other treed areas with good afternoon light. Please park on a side street.

      How many people can be in the photos?

      Mini-sessions include parents and children from one family. No pets due to the time constraints. These mini sessions aren't for extended families, grandparents or cousin groups there is simply not enough time. If you would like to book a full family session please get in touch!

      Is there a contract? How does payment work?

      You can read all terms and conditions here:
      Terms & Conditions

      Payment is via the booking system. Your booking is not confirmed until your have paid in full.

      By paying/booking you agree to the terms and conditions outlined above.

      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, 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. Avoid telling your kids to 'smile' or 'look the camera'!

      I have a current working with children’s check, am a mum to a six and four year old and am very used to working with kids of all ages. Yes, you can bring your teenagers!

      What if the weather is bad?

      If the photographer deems the weather unsuitable or has to cancel for an unforeseen reason you will be contacted via text message and a new date will be rescheduled.

      Your booking fee is for the time-slot and is non-refundable or transferable if you do not show up for your allocated time slot.

      How do I get my images?

      You will be emailed a link to your gallery, you may set your own password. You are welcome to share you gallery with grandparents etc.

      You will be emailed a coupon code for choosing your included three high resolution images. This code will only work once, please use it when you check out.

      You can use the online store to submit any print or digital orders if you are choosing to purchase the whole gallery. 

      Your gallery will expire after two weeks.

      What about prints and products?

      Prints and products are completely optional and can be ordered through a professional lab based in Adelaide via your online gallery. The quality is exceptional and prints are available in a variety of sizes with pricing will be clearly listed in the online store. They will shipped directly to you.

      The quality of these prints is much higher than you would recieve going through a cheaper online alternative. You certainly are not obliged to use the lab for prints, but my advice is to at very least avoid anything with a kiosk machine (no Kmart or Snapfish) as your colours may suffer.

      You are welcome to share your gallery password with grandparents if they would like to purchase prints/products..

      Can I save the online gallery images to my computer or share and use the watermarked low resolution images on my Facebook page or Instagram?

      No. Please respect that I am offering these sessions up at very low cost. You do not have use permission for the files unless you have purchased the entire digital collection. Once you have received your 3 files or full collection download you are more than welcome to share those images however you like. Right clicks are disabled and screen-shotting files that you don’t have permission for is illegal.
