Is it worth booking a Mini Photography Session?

Updated: Oct 30, 2019

Is a Mini Session worth booking?

Yes yes yes! And we're saying that not because we love them. We have some reasons behind why it's worth booking your Christmas Mini Session:

A Mini Session is a mini version of a family or couple outdoors sessions. Usually, our standard sessions last between 60 to 90 minutes but Mini Sessions last 20 minutes. That's why we call them 'mini' :)

Quick And Easy

We think they're a great idea because they're short, sharp and fun. And moreover, Mini Sessions are a quick and easy way to update your summer family photographs. Kiddies change way too quickly and that's a perfect way to freeze some of their littleness in photographs.

Easy On Your Pocket

Whilst our usual sessions are personalised for each family and we're ready to fulfil your wishes and accommodate any needs you may have, they may not suit all budgets.

Mini Sessions are designed for those who don't want to spend much time and money but still have beautiful photographs to look back on in the years to come.

At $200 with a $50 prints & product spending credit, Mini Sessions are easy on your pocket. You will end up not only with wonderful family photographs but you will also have some personalised keepsakes to cherish or gift to your loved ones.

Easier To Sell

No, we don't mean our sales haha! We mean selling the idea to your family. Or what we really mean... It’s easier to sell a Mini Session to your partner than a full session 😂We promise we are not prejudiced but that’s often the reality.

Also, if your kids are a bit older, they may roll their eyes when they hear 'family portraits'... So it's easier to sell the idea to them too when you say the session will only go for 20 minutes. Plus, toddlers love them because we provide them with all the fun and laughs in a short 20 mins. And babies love them because they don't have enough time to get tired.

Candid & Fun Portraits

Our sessions are never ever about standing in a row whilst we move you around for a perfect pose. Nope. Amazing photographs are our desired outcome from your Mini Session but to achieve that we know you and your family need to have fun! Our sessions are based on giving you and your kiddies prompts and fun tasks that result in genuine, happy and meaningful candid photographs.

Christmas Gifts

This year your Mini Session includes $50 credit for our online store full of professional prints, frames, and keepsakes. For $50 you can purchase two big matted prints, one for each grandparent :) Or use your $50 towards one big frame for your partner or a bunch of prints of all the photographs from the session.

Professional prints can be purchased for as little as $3.60 each. Matted prints ready to slip into your own frames start at $13. Custom made frames start at $120. Plenty of options!

And we promise that those gifts will be meaningful & professionally made in Australia.

p.s. We've just introduced our torn paper print and we're pretty crazy about it. This really is a unique gift for your loved ones that may add this little bit of edginess to your Christmas gift.
