Spring Mini Session Prep Guide

Location is TBA for Central Park Mini Sessions.

I will announce the specific location soon. 

In the meantime, check out this prep guide with info on what to wear for your Spring Mini

Frequently asked questions

What time should we arrive?

You should plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early to your designated time slot.  

Because of the nature of Fall Mini-shoots, you will only have 20 minutes

with me, and I would hate for you to have even less than that amount of

time and feel rushed.  Aim to be early, and you'll be ready to go when your

session time starts!  

If you have a child under 1 year old. I suggest bringing a small blanket.

What should we wear?

I highly recommend wearing clothing that makes you feel great!  

If you have a favorite sweater, dress, or outfit that make you feel like a million bucks, start with that and go from there! 

Remember that it will likely be VERY chilly - be prepared with layers.  Cardigans, scarves, tights are all great layering tools and can add to your look. The great thing about mini sessions is that you won't have to stay out in the cold very long!  If the temperature drops below freezing and you feel uncomfortable, you may contact me to reschedule. HOWEVER, I cannot guarantee that a later date will be warmer...

 

Ladies- I don't recommend wearing heels unless they are wide heels for fear of sinking into the grass. 

Coordinating with family members is always a good idea.  The best idea is to stay in the same color scheme of 3-4 colors.  When in doubt, pick neutral colors or earth tones. Here are some great inspiration boards for families.

I also made a Pinterest board with clothing that is in stores NOW if you're

looking to pick up a few items for your family.

Will I have time to change clothes?

Most likely not.   You'll only have 20 minutes and you won't want to waste any of that time changing clothes.

When will I receive my photos?

You will receive your online gallery within 10 days.  After that point you will have up to one week to choose your final picks or purchase more from the gallery.  I understand most everyone will be using the images from the mini-sessions for holiday cards and gifts so I am focusing on a quick turnaround.

MOST IMPORTANTLY! Remember to have fun!!!

I try to remind my clients that children between 1 and 3 years old most likely will not sit still and smile for photos. We will be running, spinning, jumping and chasing these little ones around. 

The best photographs in my opinion are of genuine laughter with family members.  If you have small children, bring a favorite toy or better yet, brainstorm what makes your kids laugh- is it a song?  A silly face that you make or a fun game that we could perhaps do during the shoot (hide and seek/ simon says, etc.)   Getting REAL smiles is always a task, so why not have some ACTUAL FUN instead of pretending!   And when all else fails IT'S TICKLE TIME!!!   

What if it rains?

We will stay in touch the day before the shoot and if it looks like rain or if it's too cold, we will reschedule.
