I wrote in a recent newsletter that I was going to be holding mini-sessions again at the WRAL Azalea Garden this spring.  The strangely warm, and then cold winter that we had affected the garden and I've been very hesitant to plan the sessions.  I've been in touch with the manager at the garden and although most of the flowers survived the cold spell we had, even though some had started blooming, it's looking like the garden might actually bloom later than normal this year.  This is a problem because all of my weekends in mid to late April are booked.  On top of that, Easter is right in the middle of April this year and I can't do them that weekend either (and most of you are probably hosting family or traveling).  I really loved doing the azalea mini-sessions last year, but I just could not figure out a day to set them up.  I've decided instead to offer spring mini-sessions in early May, perfect for Mother's Day.  I think these will be so much fun.  Last year, the day of the azalea mini-sessions was frigid and windy.  April weather can be a little unpredictable, but by May it's a little more consistently warm.  I've also decided that instead of using the WRAL Azalea Garden, we'll have these at JC Raulston Arboretum.  This garden is so beautiful and will have all kinds of flowers and trees blooming.  

Spring mini-sessions are great for all kinds of families and celebrations.  Maybe you missed out on fall sessions and really want to update your family's photos. Maybe you just moved into a new home and would love some artwork for your walls.  Maybe you have a baby that is celebrating a milestone, like a first birthday.  These mini-sessions are open to all families and make an excellent Mother's Day gift.  

The mini-sessions will be held on Saturday May 6th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.  Raulston Arboretum is on Beryl Road in Raleigh, very close to the NC State Vet School and the fairgrounds.  


Each mini-session is $95 and includes the following:

-A 15 minute photography session on Saturday May 6, 2017 at JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC.

-A private online gallery of 10 photo proofs.  You choose your favorite 3 photos to receive as a digital download.  You will receive each of your 3 photos in full resolution color, black and white, and a low resolution copy for using on the internet, making a total of 9 digital files.

-A print release so that you can make your own prints.

-Additional image files and prints may be purchased but there is no obligation to do so. Additional edited images are $30 each or you can purchase all of your remaining images for $100.  Prints start at $15 and have a quick turnaround time, perfect a gift for Mother's Day.  

Mini-sessions are booked on a first paid, first booked basis.  In order to make the process of booking mini-sessions easier, 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 date.  Select the time that you'd prefer and pay for your session.  

2.  Once your mini-session is selected and paid I will get in touch with you so we can also discuss ages and the number of family members participating in the session, tips on what to wear, and answer any questions that you have.  I will also send you a session agreement to sign, which outlines details of how mini-sessions work.  

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

4.  On the date of the session, we will meet, have a fun time taking pictures of your family and individual children, and enjoy some lovely spring weather.  If it is raining on the date of the mini-sessions I will call you in the morning and let you know that the mini-sessions will be canceled.  We will then find a time to reschedule.
