Mini sessions are available at specific times of the year. If you would like to see if a mini session is available now, please contact me at 209-284-5500 or via email at email@example.com
Session Details: Mini sessions are $75 with a $25 deposit that is due when booking, the remainder of your fee will need to be paid the day of your session. Each session lasts 15 minutes. Your package comes with 5 photos that you will be able to choose a couple of days after the session. Usually sessions produce 15-20 photos in total. If you’d like more than 5 photos, each additional photo is $10.
Payment Information: Your retainer payment of $25 can be paid via Paypal or Venmo. The rest of your payment ($50) will be due at your session and can be paid via cash, check, Paypal or Venmo. If you choose to purchase additional photos, we can invoice those after you have reviewed your images.
Booking: When you have decided on a location and preferred date, please contact me at 209-284-5500 or firstname.lastname@example.org to book your session.
Prints: Sessions come with high resolution digital downloads of the images you choose. Prints can be ordered through your download gallery for an additional fee. Print Pricing can be found here.
Clothing: Sessions come with one outfit.
Group Size: Sessions are limited to 7 people or pets for minis. If you wish to do a mini session with an extended family, you will need to book a half portrait session. (1 hour, 150 total, 10 images). Large groups take much longer to position and photograph, especially when breaking down into smaller subgroups and individuals.
Session Types: Mini sessions can be regular family portraits, individual, senior photos, maternity, toddler and infant (with the exception of cake smashes), pet portraits and engagement. At this time I do not offer mini sessions for business or wedding. All mini sessions are limited to the locations below.
Locations: Mini Session locations are offered in 3 standard locations, Stan State, Army Corps River Crossing in Ripon and Bloomingcamp Ranch. These 3 locations are included in the session fee. Knights Ferry is also an option, but comes with a $25 travel fee.
*See my standard mini sessions below. A slideshow featuring images from each location is below the location description.
Stan State in Turlock: Stan State has multiple ponds, fountains and manicured landscaping. Most of the trees are evergreen and are all well established. Stan State has multiple ponds, fountains, walking bridges, gazebos, buildings and manicured landscaping. Stan State is a good spot for portraits in a manicured setting.
Army Corps River Crossing Park in Ripon – This park has nature trails, fields, a river and a bunch of trees and plants that are native to the valley. The river has a sandy beach and a bridge. This is a good spot for photos that have a more natural look to them.
Bloomingcamp Ranch in Oakdale – This is a small privately owned ranch out in Oakdale. They have manicured lawns, orchards, a pond with a waterwheel and larger evergreen trees. The ranch also usually has a few seasonal displays up. The ranch is a good spot for rustic looking photos.
Knights Ferry: ($25 travel fee applies) Knights Ferry runs along the Stanislaus river, is filled with native plants and trees, has the oldest covered bridge in the nation and plenty of old buildings that can be used as interesting backgrounds. This is the best location for images with water backgrounds or rustic looking buildings.
