mini sessions

It’s that time of year again… family session time!

Looking to have your family documented before another year goes by?  You’re in luck!  We are offering a select number of mini session slots, also in time for your holiday card and/or gift needs!  Let’s get you some awesome photos!

As always, we book on a first come, first serve basis.  No session time or date can be held without payment being received in full.  These are our LAST REMAINING DATES in time for the holidays.  Don’t wait!  Once we get a certain number of sessions a day, we are fully booked, and other booking time slots will disappear!  Please do not hesitate to book your session or you may miss out. Have more questions?  See the FAQ & SESSION POLICIES below!

WHAT’S A MINI SESSION?  A mini session is a shorter (only 30 minute) version of a full session.  We do have 2 more slots for a full family session!  If you would prefer one, contact us ( asap.  Or we can get you booked for 2018!

WHERE IS IT? In our outdoor “studio”, a local Burbank park we adore!

WHO IS THIS FOR? Couples, families, babies, kids, and/or pets!

WHEN IS IT?  We’re only offering this special on select dates in October & November.  All sessions are guaranteed to be ready in time for the holidays!

HOW MANY FAMILY MEMBERS CAN I BRING? As many as you want!  Just note that this session is for up to 4 family members and each additional person is $25 each.

WILL YOU PROVIDE PROPS OR A BACKDROP?  Nope!  We prefer more natural settings so we can focus on capturing you as a family more organically. Your session will have a more “lifestyle” or in the moment kind of feel.  We want to capture you laughing, running, having fun & being YOU!  If you’re looking for super posed-looking photos, that’s not really our jam.

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN PROPS? Absolutely!  Please bring anything you feel would give your session more of your personality.  A picnic blanket, basket, quilt, balloons, bicycle, are just some ideas!  Just keep in mind you have a 30 minute session so if any set up time is involved, please arrive early to do so.  We are unable to offer holiday themed stylizing this year.

HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET? The amount of images varies from session to session, but a typical 30 minute session produces a minimum of 10 quality images.  All the images you receive in your gallery will be professionally edited & you can download the high resolution images directly off your gallery.  We will also upload your images directly to so you may get started on your holiday cards right away!

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES? Our turnaround time is 4-6 weeks.  We do know that you want to have these images in time for the holidays, so we typically work around the clock (24/7) to make sure you receive your images as soon as humanly possible.  Last year we turned images around within 3 weeks.  You can opt to pay a rush fee if you prefer to have your images sooner!  The rush fee ensures your photos arrive within 7 business days of your session (if paid in advance).

WHAT IF I JUST NEED ONE IMAGE?  Even one image requires a full rush fee to be paid in order to have your images sooner than they are ready.

CAN I SCHEDULE A FULL SESSION?  We do have 2 more slots for a full family session!  If you would prefer one, contact us ( ASAP!  Or we can get you booked for 2018!

WHAT IF I BOOK BUT CAN’T MAKE IT?  If you should need to reschedule we can happily move you to a different slot if one is available! We ask that you give us as much notice as possible so that we can be sure to accommodate you.  If you cannot make it at all, the sooner we know the better.  If we cannot rebook you to another time, you may use your session fee toward a full session from January 8 – February 28, 2018 during the week (M-Thurs) only.   This credit will expire on February 28, 2018.

WHAT IF MY CHILD OR I AM SICK? We cannot emphasize this enough – DO NOT COME IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD ARE SICK!!!!  You run the risk of making ourselves or our other clients sick!  In order to keep up with our workflow at this time of year, we do our best to keep from getting ill.   You can delay the turnaround time on your own photos as well as others.  Please let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to accommodate your situation.
