Pros and Cons to a Family Mini-Session :: Minneapolis Portrait & Lifestyle Photographer by Erica Loeks

It's that time of year, Summer is in full swing and you're wondering what lake to hit up this weekend! If you're like me, I want ALL the Summer has to offer ALL day EVERY day! As we approach Fall, the thoughts are creeping in that you need to get a Family photo session on the books or it'll be turkey season before you know it and you've missed those awesome Summer evenings for great photos. 
 

Over the years I get asked to "Just take a few photos, nothing major." and to that, I've answered your prayers and created a limited amount of Mini-Family sessions for this year. They are 20 minutes and definitely different in timing than a regular session. 

 

Why book a Mini-Session and what are the pros and cons? 

PROS ::  

:: It's in and out, 20 minutes to get those smiles, you're in the zone and ready to go!

:: You receive 15 digital files, which are ready to print and create with

:: You save a bit of money, sessions are $300 

:: Perfect for the annual Holiday Card photo and a few extras to frame

 

CONS :: 

:: 20 minutes is the length of your session. If you're wanting a bit more in terms of a lifestyle shoot, you'd be better to go with a regular family session , which is roughly 90 minutes. 

:: Full Family sessions receive an online gallery of roughly 30-60 images to choose from 

:: Full sessions start at $150 for the session fee and products are purchased a-la-carte from there.

 

Which is the right fit, Mini-Session or Full Family Session? To be honest, they are both AWESOME because it gets your family photographed once a year and you cannot put a price tag on documenting your family grow. It really does boil down to timing and ease.
