Why do I need a photography mini-session?

A photography mini-session is a great way to have professional photographs taken of your family or children without the expense of a full session.  Mini-sessions are fun, fast and usually themed.  These sessions create beautiful memories that you can look back on and create wonderful gifts for grandparents or parents!  It is also a great way to get to know a photographer and how they can work with your family.

What should we wear?

Christmas party clothes or warm woolly jumpers, hats, gloves and scarves all complete this festive scene beautifully!  Clean boots, neutral shoes, socks or slippers may be worn.  Please avoid any fluorescent or reflective clothing and shoes as these can have adverse affects in lighting and colour in your photographs.

Who are mini-sessions suitable for?

Children, couples, families of up to 5 people (a maximum of two adults).

How much does a photography mini-session cost?

The sessions are a £10 non-refundable deposit payable either upfront (if pre-bookable), or £10 on the day.  This can be paid by PayPal, bank transfer or Credit/Debit card.  This £10 deposit will be added as a credit to your gallery.  

Sessions at Events, such as children's groups and fairs: If these sessions are being held at an event, you only need to book for the event and look for me there - pre-booking is not required.

Pre-bookable sessions: For mini-sessions run solely by Clare Amanda Photography, advanced booking is required and the £10 deposit will be taken as security for your booking.

How do I make sure my children are happy during the mini-session?

Please bring snacks for children, ensure they are comfortable before their session and allow plenty of time to arrive and allow them to settle in before your time slot.  Try not direct them around too much.  Bring a loved toy that can be held behind the photographer's head if required to attract their attention.

What else do I need to do before the mini-session?

Pre-Session Clean Up: Do ensure you clean up faces and sticky fingers before entering the studio.  Brush hair and remove any pet hair from dark clothing.  Any requests for additional editing will be charged at an hourly rate.

Consideration for other Clients: I kindly request that to protect the set and props for my other clients on the day, dirty shoes (mud, paint, glitter, etc) and clothes will not be permitted.  

How will I get my photographs?

Within two weeks of the mini-session, you will receive access to your own secure online gallery where you can favourite, select and purchase physical and digital products, and product packages.  Prices start at £20.  Your deposit will be added as a credit to your gallery to use against any products offered here.  You may share your gallery link and password with family/friends if you wish and they will be able to log in with their own email address and purchase your photographs too.
