We are excited to release our mini-session schedule. The health and safety of everyone attending is our number one priority so please be sure to read all Covid policies and procedures as well as some FAQ's below. Have a question that isn't answered here, email us and we will be happy to answer and add it to this list!

Mini-session Covid policies and procedures

For everyones health and safety, mini-sessions are being held at our private residential location, and outdoors. As of now, we do not plan on indoor mini-sessions, but will be offering indoor private sessions that are NOT back-to-back. 

Bathrooms will be available for use, but please have your mask to use them inside.

Backdrops and props

Use of all the backdrops as pictured, but due to our new polices, please understand that clients will need to bring their own blankets and props that clients want for sitting and holding. All props, truck and any other hard seating will be sanitized in between each session as a precaution, but props are for the backdrop and are not to be held or played with.

We will be giving you specific instructions on arriving and departing during your mini-session. Your photographer will greet you from afar, but we will always remain 6 feet apart with your photographer wearing a mask. We will shoot from a distance with a longer lens and direct you in posing. Only those who are being photographed should attend the session. We will not be taking extended family sessions of over 8 people, until further notice.We will be asking you to help pose your children, fix outfits, hair in face, hand and feet placement, etc.

Who will my photographer be?

Your photographer will be either Courtney or Kerry, we will have the full schedule of who will be doing each specific session in a couple weeks.

Do I need to wear a mask during my session?

You do not have to wear a mask during your session, but please read on.

The reason for doing the mini-sessions at our private location is so that we are able to keep our clients safe while not being in public areas. We will be able to control who will be here and the amount of people at one time. We are requiring everyone to have masks on them in the event they need to use our bathroom. We will be asking everyone to stay in their cars until their session time. Please do what you are comfortable with while walking around on our property. Your photographer will be wearing a mask during the entire mini-session event. 

What if I want a session and cannot make any of these mini-session dates?

You can email us to book a full/private session.


I have a gift card or credit that I would like to apply to booking, how do I do that?

Great! We require everyone to pay the retainer to secure their spot. If you have a gift card or credit that covers your entire session amount, we will refund you the retainer fee once you attend your session.

If you have a gift card or credit that will cover the partial session cost, you will just need to let us know you are applying a gift card or credit after you book or in the booking notes, and we will use that towards your balance.

Will you be doing Santa pictures this year?

We know everyone loves our Santa sessions. We are looking into a creative way to incorporate Santa. We do know that we will not be doing our usual sitting on Santa's lap this year. Please stay tuned as we update you in the weeks to come.
