Mini Shoot Introduction

These affordable 20 minute photoshoots are offered outside throughout the year at locations all across Colorado.  Mini Shoots are an opportunity for me to try new poses, test out new locations and meet new clients for a reduced fee.  Specials include all edited images sent online through direct download.  There are NO cancellations, refunds or exchanges.   Specials start at $175, click here for more pricing options.

Who are these for?  Babies over 8 weeks old, small families with under 5 members, individuals and couples.   Mini shoots are all booked online.  Should you not fit into that set, please book a portrait session.

What can I expect?   I bring two cameras and use what is on site.  I do not bring studio equipment, additional lenses, reflectors or backdrops. I also don’t bring props but you are more than welcome to.  My style is to suggest poses and shoot as the set ups come together naturally.  I encourage you to interact with each other and occasionally look my way.  I will shoot and move to a new spot to give you some variety and keep the kids engaged.  While general locations are posted on the scheduling pageeach exact site is finalized the week prior so I can do a walk through close to the conditions we will have.  Most sessions are nature backdrops but some are industrial, urban, country, or a mix things.  Please adventure around the website, dig into the blog or Facebook page for examples.

Please read other terms, conditions and exclusions before booking.    Pricing information is also listed on this page.

After your session is complete, I make one solid round of photographer chosen edits and then images are uploaded to your online gallery.   There will likely be a mix of color and black and white images.  What you see in the online gallery is what you get, there are no additional edits available for these shoots.  CDs are mailed following the online gallery upload,  2-3 weeks after your session.  Payments include sitting fee, online gallery, tax, shipping, packaging…AND Most importantly… all copyright released, processed JPGs on disc.

I occasionally offer mini shoots exclusively for newborns, dogs, or boudoir clients.   I also travel.  Those super special sessions are announced on Facebook and twitter then followed by a client only email.  If you would like to be notified when these client announcements go out, email and we will add you to the list (and look forward to seeing you)!
