Mini Sessions

Designed for Dance Studios, Groups, Clubs and Teams 

Mini Sessions take Picture Day to the next level!  They are the coolest photography experience you can offer your students, athletes, or group members.  These sessions combine picture day with a mini portrait session allowing your student to really showcase what they can do.  Where Picture Day is one pose and done with the photographer choosing the best image for the package, mini sessions give freedom and time to try multiple poses and expressions that the client gets to choose!

What to Expect 

I take my work very seriously, but you would never know that during a session with me!  My goal is to capture natural smiles, dreamy aloof gazes, fierce determination, formal classic poses, all while laughing and having fun.  I want to show the true you inside and out.  As a photographer, I am very flexible and relaxed.  I want my clients to arrive stress free, informed, feeling in control or like they can ask me anything.  No apologies for sharing your visions or asking for a particular pose.  If you feel lost or unsure, don't worry, I have you covered.  I will walk you through the entire session. Together, we will create the collection you dreamed of.

Your Session Includes:

  • The photographers creative talent and time.
  • Consultations are included with every session. - We will discuss your goal and ideas, wardrobe, locations, props and more. They can take place in person, via email or phone.  
  • Travel up to 30 minute drive (for photographer). Travel fees may be applied for distant locations.
  • Editing and Enhancement - Each image is hand edited, meaning I do not run the gallery through a batch/bulk filter.  Every single photograph is treated as a piece of art.  I pay attention to every detail from fly away hairs, blemishes, background distractions to composition, color and exposure.  The editing goes beyond touch ups.  I analyze the style, poses and expressions to curate photos that will enhance and amplify the beauty already present.  
  • **Proof galleries are not permanent. After a year they go into the archives. Theses images are unedited watermarked proofs.  Clients usually receive their gallery within a few days after the session.
  • ***Clients will choose their images from the proof gallery, focusing on expressions and poses you like.  Then the images will be edited and enhanced.  Please allow 2-3 weeks to receive the final images that are ready to download.
