Why get a Mini Session?

Mini Sessions are a quick and easy way to get updated photos. If your partner does not enjoy having photos done, mini sessions are a great solution since they are only 20 minutes.

Don’t know of a good location for a photography session? No problem with mini sessions the photographer chooses the spot. Do you want some updated photos but don’t feel like you need a full gallery of images? A mini session is perfect because you received ten edited photographs via an online gallery.

Celebrate Your Relationship

Life is busy, and this has been a year to celebrate relationships. I wanted to celebrate relationships with a mini-session experience that went beyond a photography session. The date day experience combines a mini-session with drinks or dinner. Everyone has a different idea of what makes the perfect date day. So you decide when you book if drinks or dinner is going to make your date day experience.

The other inspiration for the date day idea? Supporting local businesses this year has been a tough one for local businesses and especially for the restaurant and bar industry. St. Jacobs is a beautiful small town that has a lot of character. It was an easy choice to find local businesses to support the community. If you choose the drinks option, you will receive a gift card to Block 3 Brewery Co; a brewery with a lot of character and great drinks. If you choose the dinner option, you get a gift certificate to The Village Biergarten. You can find links to both local businesses below.



What if we cancel or reschedule the photography session?

The non-refundable retainer you paid when you booked and signed the contract was to hold your specific date. Unfortunately if you need to cancel or reschedule the photography session that doesn’t change the fact that I have turned away other bookings for that specific date to save it for your session. Another non-refundable retainer would be needed for your new date if you need to reschedule your photography session.
** If you are a photography session that is being affected by COVID-19 there are specific policies in place. I am happy to chat about them with you.

What happens if the weather is bad on our photography session day?

Unless the weather is dangerous for us or my camera gear we can still amazing photos with dark clouds and changing weather. We can find overhangs, use umbrellas or embrace a light rain. I am comfortable photographing in all types of weather and working with all types of lighting situations.

For mini sessions, the backup weather date is the following week. So for November 15, 2020, the backup date is November 22, 2020.

How fast do I get the photos back?

You will get your online gallery delivered to you with your 10 edited images within 15 days. Let me know if you need options to put a rush on the editing.

Do you give RAW photos back?

No! I never give out RAW images. The RAW images are only half the art that goes into digital photography; the other half is all about my editing style. My style (including my editing style) should be one of the main reasons you hire me.

Does liking my editing style matter?

The short answer is yes.

For the same reason, I won't give out raw files; my editing style is part of my photography experience and what it means to book me as your photographer. My editing style is a bright, moody edit; I love to bring light and shadow into my photographs. I love my skin tones and clothing to be creamy and authentic to colour.

Do I get to pick the location?

Not for mini-sessions. One of the ways that I am able to make mini-sessions more affordable is to select the location and have multiple couples book sessions throughout the day.

If you want to choose the location, please send me a message and I am happy to set up a couples session with you.

Do you photoshop us?

No. I do not photoshop bodies to make them appear different to how they look in real life. I am all about self-love and photographing real moments both involve you exactly how you are.

If you have a pimple or something temporary like a bruise or a rash, I don’t mind getting rid of it because it is only temporarily part of you.

Can I suggest what type of photos I want?

Yes, I understand the excitement and making Pinterest boards. But I need you to understand that part of hiring me as your photographer is trusting me to capture your photography session with all the important moments. So by all means send over the Pinterest boards but give me the ability and creativity to capture your photography session as it happens naturally and cohesively.
