Who typically books these mini sessions?
A wide range of clients! Just a few of my clients have utilized these mini sessions for maternity portraits, school seniors, pregnancy announcements, a proposal, family updated photos, newly weds, branding headshots, couples and also new pup additions!
Are dogs allowed to be involved in the mini session?
YES, YES and YES again. I love dogs and when they are in the portraits! In the questionnaire that will be sent out prior to your session you can tell me information about your pup and I will provide tips on what to bring.
What is included in the mini session and how many images will I receive?
Fall mini portrait sessions are just $275 and 20 minutes long. Included in your mini session are 10 fully edited high resolution digital files. On average there will be 30-40 fully edited watermarked images in your online gallery for you to choose from. Once the images are selected, you will be able to download the selected images without the watermark. To purchase an additional image, it is $15 per image. To purchase the entire gallery is $200. (All prices above are not including PA 6% sales tax).
When will I receive the online gallery?
As I know often these mini sessions are used for holiday cards, I deliver the online gallery within 7 business days from the mini session!
Is 20 minutes for the mini session long enough?
YES! I am very experienced in posing and can do a lot in 20 minutes to ensure a variety of photographs. I do however need you and your family to arrive on time and ready to go to for you get the most out of your session.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! 50% of the non-refundable retainer is to secure your session and the remaining 50% a week is due 2 days before. Payments can be made through the online contract with debit or credit card (no processing fee) or Venmo @Andrea-Krout
How can I print my images?
You are able to order prints directly through the professional lab I use through the online gallery, or you can print your images through a lab of your choice!
"I am not very photogenic or worried about our family focusing for photos. Any tips and suggestions for outfits?"
Do not stress. I have encountered many different family sessions and am prepared! When you are telling your children they are going to take photos, talk to them more as we are going to play games and have fun. I have helpful prompts to make the session enjoyable for everyone! I am happy to help with outfit suggestions so please do not hesitate to email me with photos of options.
Are there any limitations to these mini sessions?
The max of family members in the mini session is 5. For extended family sessions, please contact me for more details.
What is your late policy?
There are no refunds if you miss your session or are too late. I cannot stress how important it is to show up on time and ready to begin your session.
Are there rain dates?
With the portraits being fully outside, the rain dates will be November 7th and November 14th. I will not reschedule the portraits unless it is going to be a wash out, or I feel as I would be putting you and myself in harms way. The final call will be made 24 hours before the session. Cloudy weather is actually beautiful for photos! Upon booking of your session, you are also agreeing to the rain date options. Times and location may change but the rain dates will remain as the only two rain date options.
