What are Mini Sessions? Mini Sessions are an abbreviated photo session for families, couples, babies, and individuals. They are offered during select months of the year due to popular demand. They are just like all of my portrait sessions, just shorter! You get 20 minutes of shooting with me instead of the typical hour. You still get high resolution files and a private online gallery.
What to expect out of your LKR Photo Mini Session? During your 20 minute session, we will get beautifully posed portraits and a few fun candids, as time allows. Our sessions will run every 20 minutes with a 10 minute break in between each session. It's extremely important that you show up on time. If you are late to your session - it will still start and end at the previously agreed time. If you are 5, 10 or 15 minutes late - you will still pay the full fee of $200 but only get 15, 10 or 5 minutes of shooting. I will try my best to make the most out of your session if you show up late. Just to be safe... try to show up early!
What do we get? You will receive a dropbox link with high-res, edited, digital images for you to download, share, and print however you'd like. All images will be delivered by November 25th - at the latest. (So you can order Holiday cards!)
Payment: Your balance of $200 will be due the day of your scheduled mini session. Cash and checks are fine - but Venmo is my payment option of choice! You can find me on Venmo as @Lisa-Remerowski.
What happens if it's raining? Don't worry - the photos will just be shot indoors in a studio setting on a back drop.
What should we wear for our session? Deciding what to wear in your mini session can be stressful. Here are a couple tips to guide you in your outfit selection. The most important thing to remember it to be comfortable, classic, and timeless!
Coordinate colors, but avoid being matchy-matchy: Goodbye matching jeans and awkwardly-fitting long-sleeve button down shirts! Instead of matching exactly, pick a color scheme and mix and match patterns and colors.
Layer: Layering sweaters, light jackets for men, scarves, socks with boots, cardigans over dresses, vests, etc. is a great way to add texture and dimension to photos – not to mention it will give you a really “styled” look. Bonus, if you pick layers that look good on or off, you can change your outfit simply be removing a sweater/jacket and throwing on a new necklace.
Accessories: Don’t forget accessories! Watches, jewelry, hats, and scarves are simple pieces to add that will really make your photos look more polished, stylized, and professional.
Leave logos at home: You may love Disney Characters or a favorite brand, but your professional photos should be timeless and classic. Stick with solids and some patters and leave the character and logo shirts at home. They are often distracting to the image and these photos are about YOU, not Mickey.
Don't fear patterns: In fact, mix, match, and embrace them.
