Mini sessions

Mini sessions are a shortened photo shoot that are truly perfect for families (especially with littles!), quick headshot sessions, and honestly anything else! 

Instead of 30 minutes or more, you’ll have a short and sweet 15 minute session. We love mini sessions because they're easy on you and are easy to squeeze into your busy calendar! 

2024 mini sessions are here

Want to know why we offer mini sessions? 

We know how hard it can be to make time for a full 30+ minute photo shoot. We also know 30+ minutes can be pretty taxing on your littles. 

We also firmly believe that each stage in life deserves to be preserved so you can look back on it in the future. 

Mini sessions are also so versatile! 

They can be used for updating family photos (once a year or even through multiple seasons), milestones with your kids, headshots, quick maternity photos or engagement photos, photos with your pets…the options are limitless and completely flexible to you!

"So kind, responsive, professional, talented, creative (and everything else you would want in a photographer). They did professional headshots for our doctorate program, and everyone loved their photos! I seriously can not think of a better team to work with! I highly highly suggest booking with Adam and Becca—you will not regret it one bit!!! Whether you need company photos, wedding photos (or video), family photos, etc... Adam and Becca are the way to go!"

you may be wondering

 How do you get enough photos in such a short time?

You’d be surprised by how many photos we can get in just 10 minutes! Trust us, you’ll have plenty of great photos to choose from. Frequently photographing weddings has taught us to be skilled at making a lot happen in a small amount of time. We’ve got you!

Frequently Asked Questions

How many images do I get from a mini session? 

You will receive a minimum of 15 images from a 20-minute mini session.

What if my kids are not in the mood?

Sometimes they are just not feeling it. We work to help your child feel comfortable with us. We never want to make a child feel uncomfortable with a camera!

We respect their boundaries and sometimes they just need a breather.

Want to know the real truth, though?

Most of the time when parents are so worried about their kids behaving or looking at the camera, it’s actually the parents that aren’t looking at the camera! We promise even if things feel a little chaotic at times, the photos will turn out beautifully.

If your kid or baby just really needs a break and the mini session time slot has ended, we will work with you to make it up either between sessions or on another day. Life happens!

How do I know which time slot to book?

The best way to book your mini session is to think about your schedule and what works best. Don’t get caught up in the sunset! If sunset photos are after your little one’s bedtime, it’d be better to have photos when your kid is in a happier mood than have golden hour lighting!
