You see these ads: “I’m running mini sessions”; “book your mini session”; “Autumn mini sessions now booking”… As photographers, we love organising them and are so excited to announce them that we don’t stop to think about whether or not you actually know what the hang a mini session is!
So, what is a mini session?
Now, I can’t answer on behalf of all photographers, but I can certainly answer from my perspective.
When you book a standard family/lifestyle session with me, it will be between 45 minutes and 1 hour long, at a time and location per your requirements, in line with the theme/style/”look” that you want and you will receive a minimum of 30 images.
Mini sessions are different:
- I plan the sessions upfront, according to a theme, either on my own or in collaboration with a stylist. For example, with the Autumn Mini Sessions, I enlisted the help of Tam from Tapestry CT to make my “autumn” theme come to life. We chose a location that fitted in with my vision and opened up a few short slots at a pre-determined time and date.
- The sessions will be for between 20 and 30 minutes, maximum
- Number of images you will receive will be between 10 and 15
- My rate will be discounted
And that’s it, in a nutshell! Perfect for when you just want a few updated photos of you and your family/best friend/partner.
