Thank you for your interest in these "not so mini" mini sessions!!

Why are they "not so mini"?

Most photographers offer 10 - 15 minute sessions, back-to-back on 1 or 2 set dates. With my sessions you can choose your day AND the session lasts up to 30 minutes!! The sessions are for up to 5 people and you have a choice of 3 stunning locations. They are super fun and will give you a range of beautiful images which celebrate your unique and loving family. When it come to choosing your final images you can choose a little or a lot, and adding on prints is really easy. The packages work out to be about half the price of my usual full sessions, so they are great value too!! I only offer mini-sessions in the winter months (June, July, August), so grab them while you can!

How does it all work, Stace?

Well, it's pretty straight forward really...

  • Choose your location (Port Hills, Waimairi Beach or Botanic Gardens) and contact me to book in a date.
  • Pay your $100 retainer, or choose to pay for a package up front to secure those extra free images - see below!
  • I'll contact you the day before the session to do a weather check and confirm that we are going ahead.
  • Within 1 - 2 weeks, you'll be sent a link to a time limited online gallery to choose your favourite images and add-ons from.
  • I'll prepare your final images, add a black and white version of each file, and order your prints.
  • You'll receive a notification when your high resolution files are ready to download and your prints are ready to collect!

Mini-sessions are great!! But, if you are looking for something more creative, more candid and in a variety of spots/locations, or want to add more family members, please consider my usual family sessions. These last for 1 - 1.5 hours and we pack a whole lot more in!!  

Terms & conditions

  • Sessions will be limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.
  • Sessions are up to 30 minutes long and generally held in the last 2 hours of daylight (known as the golden hours), so it’s best to wrap up warm!! Textures, layers and woolies are great!! (If you're concerned about the little ones at this time, talk to me and we can discuss options).
  • Sessions are limited to 5 people per session (but you can bring your dogs for free!)
  • Your session must take place before 31st August 2020.
  • Your session will take place in 1 spot within your chosen location. Please be aware, your chosen option may change if weather conditions are unsavoury and some locations are not suitable for young children.
  • Your session maybe re-scheduled due to poor weather - I will keep in touch with you close to the time of your session and we’ll make that decision together.
  • Please be on time for your session as some sessions will run back-to-back.
  • The retainer is non-refundable and secures your session. If you choose to purchase a package in advance to receive the 'freebies', the outstanding amount is due 5 days before your session.
  • Within 1 - 2 weeks of of your session, you will be presented with an online digital gallery of approx. 35 - 40 fully edited images to choose from.
  • Your chosen images are provided in high resolution, in both colour and black and white and downloaded from an on-line gallery, once full payment has been received.
