How do I book a mini session?

Right now I'm booking minis through square; just type in
I hope to eventually book directly through my site in due time! Just select the mini session you're trying to book and then move the calendar to the date theyre being offered. If you're having any trouble, PLEASE reach out! I know sometimes it can be a little confusing!

How does the pricing work?

Pricing for mini sessions are broken down individually based on time, costs, location, set ups, reservation fees, travel, and other collaborating business fees.

When will we get our photos?

All galleries are delivered within 2-3 weeks unless stated otherwise. For example, sometimes for Christmas minis I will put a rush on the delivery because I know everyone wants to put them on their Christmas cards!

How many pictures will we receive?

This is different for each set of mini sessions, please view the specific details of the mini session you're interested in to find out. Its generally no more than 15.

Can I gift a mini session to someone?

Yes! I can send you an invoice. However, I would contact the person you're giving it to first because you do have to choose one of the given dates/times when booking and they're non-refundable.

Are these refundable if we can't make it?

Unfortunately no. A lot goes into most of these mini sessions to create them, reserving locations, etc. I also work another full time job and usually take the day off or have to hire a babysitter for them so it wouldn't be fair to myself to allow refunds. You can however pass your session onto somebody else; a friend or family member.

How do we get our photos?

All photos are delivered via digital gallery and you'll be emailed a link to your gallery. Your gallery can remain private-password entry only if you'd like.(Please make sure to let me know, otherwise they're public). If you'd prefer a flash drive I can do that as well but it's $15 on top of your session fee as well as it must be picked up in Auburn.

Can I sponsor a mini session?

Absolutely! If there's a mini session that has a cause and you'd like to sponsor (for example, the back to school give backs or the self pawtraits) you can. I can send you a separate invoice and I'll create a post that lets people know your business has sponsored a session. Your invoice must be paid upon delivery however.

What's the difference between a mini session and your normal sessions?

A mini session is typically a day full of back to back sessions all in the same location- which is why they're at a discounted rate. A normal session is at a location of your choosing, with longer time frames, more photos delivered, and the price is higher.

I'm still unsure about something, how can I reach you?
