This year, our Spring Mini Session experience is happening at Oatlands Historic House and Gardens. We can’t wait to document you and your beautiful family in the gardens during one of their peak times for spring blooms. We are already so excited about the galleries we will create together. If you still need to reserve your session, we would love to have you. You can find the link to book one of our remaining spots below!

How To Get The Most From Your Mini Sessions 

Over the years, we have perfected our mini-session approach. Much of that starts with excellent communication with clients before the session begins. 

Fifteen minutes might seem like a short amount of time, but we’ve found that it’s the perfect sweet spot for little ones, and you’d be so surprised what we can get done in this window. 

Following a handful of tips can help you ensure you get the most out of your session. Some of our favorites are below. 

Be On Time

Make sure to be on time for your sessions—or, better, arrive early. As a mom of three, I know things come up, but arriving early is the best way to ensure a stress-free experience during any photo session. This will allow you to easily navigate traffic and parking (or, let’s be honest -put back on those shoes your toddler kicked off in the car.)

Have a Plan for Little Ones

Yes, we fully support bribing your little ones with a treat after the session. Be sure to remind them how much fun they’re going to have and that you guys have something fun planned after the session. You’re also more than welcome to bring along a favorite mess-free snack for the tiny ones. 

Pro tip: If you have more than four children, it is recommended that you book two back-to-back sessions for the best experience.
