2019 Fall Mini Sessions

North Carolina Family Photographer

2019 fall mini sessions

Well now that I’m back in the land of the pines, I’m excited to shoot in a few of my old stomping grounds as well as a few new ones! To begin, I’ll be hosting mini sessions this fall in two locations – Chapel Hill and Wilmington! It’s been a while since I’ve offered mini sessions for families and couples, and I’m so excited to have some time set aside for them this fall! Mini sessions are perfect for families with kiddos who have short attention spans, busy couples who can’t commit to a full session or anyone looking to update those picture frames or send out holiday cards. Interested? Scroll down for details and be sure to get in touch before these sessions get scooped up!

No. 1 What happens if it rains?

I love rainy days, but they are a bummer when they interfere with sessions! My typical game plan is to keep an eye on the forecast and out the window throughout the morning. If I feel like rain will prevent us from being able to shoot, I’ll contact you at least 1 hour before your session start time. Unfortunately, I will not be able to reschedule Chapel Hill sessions since I don’t live in the area. You’ll receive a full refund and the names of local photographers who are highly talented. For Wilmington sessions, my backup date is Thursday, October 24th. Please ensure that you are available for the makeup day when you book.

No. 2 Our session includes 20 pictures – can I purchase more?

Of course! If you’d like to receive more, it’s $35 for an extra 15 high-res images. This request needs to be made at booking so I can ensure I have enough extra film for your group.

No. 3 Where will our session take place?

I’m still finalizing this detail, but will notify individuals who book in advance of their session. Chapel Hill sessions will most likely be at my old stomping grounds, Merritt’s Pasture. I’m still getting to know the Wilmington area and am researching spots for mini sessions, but I’m leaning towards a beach location, most likely Wrightsville Beach.

No. 4 Why are sessions only 20 minutes long?

In my experience, I’ve found that most little kids have very short attention spans, and sessions that last much longer usually involve a meltdown – not fun! Shorter sessions usually mean happier kids, and happy kids make for great pictures!

No. 5 How do we pay?

Your entire session payment is due with booking. At this time, I prefer to cut out credit card processing fees and only accept checks or Venmo payments.

No. 6 When can I expect to receive my pictures?

I aim to have your images delivered within 3 weeks of your session via an online gallery. If it looks like my film lab’s turnaround time will extend this, I’ll be sure to let you know! My goal is to allow you plenty of time to order and mail out holiday cards before Christmas.
