2015 Back to School Mini-sessions {Raleigh NC Family Photographer}

June 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I am so excited to announce this year's Back to School mini-session event.  It's been a few years since I offered these, but felt that it would be fun to bring them back.  My oldest son is starting kindergarten in July and I am so excited for his new journey into elementary school.  He seems too little to be going to school, yet is so ready to learn.  I know it's going to be a year of amazing growth.  I know many other moms see the school experience the same way.  I hope you'll join me this summer to mark this special occasion.  

These mini-sessions are for children only, ages 2 and up (preschool age and older).  Each mini-session fee is for one child.  Additional siblings are $10 each, with a maximum of 3 children per mini-session.  Adding siblings will not increase the length of your time slot, nor necessarily give you more proofs.  If you are concerned that 15 minutes isn't enough time for all of your children, you are welcome to book multiple time slots.  

The mini-sessions will be held on Sunday July 12th and Sunday August 30th, catering to families on both the year-round and traditional school schedules.  

The Back to School mini-sessions will feature simple props, such as an antique desk, books, and chalkboards.  Please feel free to bring a favorite book, your child's backpack, or anything else you'd like to add as a prop to help your family remember this time. 

Here are the details of the mini-sessions: 

-Mini-sessions are $75 for one child (add $10 for siblings, with a maximum of 3 children per session) and include the following:

-A 15 minute session at a set location (will most likely be Sugg Farm in Holly Springs)

-A private online gallery of 8-10 edited proofs

-3 high resolution digital files, chosen from your 8-10 proofs, available for download.  Additional images may be purchased for $25 each or the entire gallery for $100.  

-A print release to allow you to make prints

-Ability to purchase professional quality prints and canvases

Mini-sessions are booked on a first paid, first booked basis.  In order to make the process of booking mini-sessions easy, I am giving clients the ability to select and pay for their mini-session directly through my website.

New to mini-sessions?  Here's how it works:

1.  Mini-sessions only take place at the designated location and dates.  Select the date and time that you'd prefer and pay for your session.  Only available time slots will show in the menu.  Time slots that do not show up have already been booked.

2.  Once your mini-session is selected and paid, I will email you the session agreement for you to read and sign electronically.  We will also discuss ages of your children participating, tips on what to wear, and answer any questions that you have.

3.  Two days before the session, I will send you an email reminding you of your mini-session date and time.  Mini-sessions must start and end on time.  If you arrive late, it will shorten your child's session.  Remember, mini-sessions are only 15 minutes to begin with, so being on time is important.  It is recommended that you arrive a few minutes early to make sure that your child is ready.  

4.  On the date of the session, we will meet, have a fun time taking pictures of your child, and enjoy the warm summer evening.  If it is raining on the date of your mini-session, I will call you in the afternoon and let you know that we need to cancel the mini-sessions.  We will then find a time to reschedule.
