I’m super excited to share that I’m holding an additional seasonal mini session this year! One evening only snuggling your kiddos in grassy fields with flowers and warm sunshine. What could be better?!? Summer mini sessions are perfect for small families, couples, or maternity photos and held in Appleton, WI.

Most people think of fall for mini sessions and while those are great, they shouldn’t get all the love! My favorite season to shoot in is actually summer. I love the colorful flowers, tall grass and warmth! Sure there might be some bugs, but with a mini session, it’s not such a big deal – plus I always bring bug spray!!

This summer, I am hosting mini sessions for families on one night only – Thursday, July 27th, 2023 in Appleton, WI. If you’re looking for a short and sweet session for family photos, this is it! This is a great way to get a glimpse of what it’s like to work with me! 

Summer Mini Details

  • Family (max 6 people), couples, or maternity
  • Appleton, WI (exact location will be shared via email)
  • 8 Digital Images
  • Print Release
  • One week turn-around to receive images
  • $250

Who Mini Sessions Are Great For

  • Kids with short attention spans
  • Just need a couple of updated photos
  • Need whole family and children group shots
  • Families of 6 people or less

Who They’re Not Great For

  • If you want photos of all the different family groupings (takes more time than a mini allows)
  • You want to pick the location, want a variety of backgrounds
  • Kids who take a while to warm up 
  • Extended families, newborns, seniors

If you need a full session instead, contact me! Full sessions are a much more individualized experience and include two separate Zoom appointments with me. These are best for designing custom artwork and albums for your home.

What To Expect

You’ll cuddle up with your loved ones and get the perfect summer images of your adorable fam!

I will pose and prompt you to interact in fun ways during the session. We’ll take both posed and unposed shots infused with hugs, kisses, and tickles.

Since a mini is just that – mini – I’ll focus on getting the whole family together, kids together, and Mom & Dad together.

Sessions will be 15 minutes.

Mini sessions include 8 digital images to download with a print release. Additional images will be available to purchase after viewing.
