Spring is right around the corner and now is the perfect time to capture your family on camera with the new Spring Mini Sessions. Mini sessions are a GREAT alternative to a full session if your family is crunched for time or if you have a little one that has a shorter attention span. 😉 I’ll be taking photos all day on April 21, 2012 at Maymont Park.

Now, here is the nitty gritty details on these fun sessions!

WHO: mini sessions are available for mini engagement shoots, senior portraits, newborn photos, children portraits and families up to 5 people (additional people will be an extra cost of $10/person) – These would also make a wonderful Valentine’s Day present for that special someone in your life! (Unfortunately, pets are not allowed during mini-sessions- mainly due to park restrictions. However, four-legged friends are more than welcome during regular sessions.)

WHAT: A mini session is a shortened version of my regular portrait photography sessions. Basically it allows us to get a few great family shots of your entire clan and then spend some time getting some more intimate shots of your family interacting. It is ideal for families who want some updated family shots to share with relatives, to update frames in their home or to share over the Internet. It is not ideal for clients who wish to have various backgrounds or clothing changes. With mini sessions, there simply is not enough time to change locations or outfits. These sessions move quickly so it’s vital that you arrive a few minutes early to check-in and prepare for your photshoot.

WHEN: Spring Mini Sessions will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2012. Sessions will begin at 9am and go until 6pm that night. If that day fills quickly, another date may be added to accommodate more clients. If it were to rain, a rain date will be put into place (most likely May 4, 2011).

WHERE: Maymont Park – near the Japanese and Italian Gardens (This is close to the Hampton Street entrance.)

HOW MUCH: The session fee is $100

WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE: 30 minutes of photography devoted to you and your family, a disc of 15-20 high-resolution images in both color and black and white with printing rights, an online password-protected image gallery, one high quality 8×10 print of your choice and 10% off all other prints ordered online.

HOW DO I BOOK: All sessions are booked first come, first serve. You may book your session by emailing me at photography@kristinakerns.com or by calling me at 804.305.1529. I will send you a contract within 24 hours. The $100 fee is due when you sign the contract in order to secure your desired time.

SHOULD WE BRING PROPS: Props will be provided to make your session perfectly unique, but if you have something in mind, please email me ahead of time so we can prepare properly.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR: My first piece of advice is to layer up. That way, if you want to take off a scarf or jacket halfway through the shoot, you can. Coordinate your colors but avoid being too matchy-matchy. You can read more about what you should and shouldn’t wear to a photoshoot on this blog post of mine title What To Wear.

WHEN CAN I SEE MY IMAGES: You will receive an email with a link to your password-protected gallery between one and two weeks after the date of the session.

WE WANT A FULL FAMILY SESSION: If you think a mini-session is a little too short for what you are looking for, I offer many other packages for full photoshoots. Please email me the date(s) you have in mind and we can get you on the calendar. If you’d like more information on full photography sessions, email me at photography@kristinakerns.com for more information and pricing details.

I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS: Just email me here and I’ll be happy to answer your questions as quickly as possible.

**Feel free to share this link with your friends on FacebookTwitter, by email and of course by word of mouth. If you and a friend both schedule a session with me (full or mini), you’ll each get an extra 8×10 print of your choice! Just mention who referred you when booking your session!

Mini Sessions are so much fun and are a great way to get new, up-to-date custom photos, but at a great price! If you’d like to see more of my work, visit my website at www.kristinakerns.com. I look forward to working with you!
