ARE MINI SESSIONS A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR FAMILY PHOTOS?

Mini Sessions.

In this post, I will share with you a bit about a photographer’s point of view on these types of sessions, some trade-offs when deciding between a mini and full session and most importantly some interesting feedback collected from my friends over on my Instagram Stories Polls. (Honestly, some of the answers surprised me – so glad I asked!)

What is a Mini Session

To start it off, all people polled knew what a Mini Session is, so it is no longer just photography jargon. But in case you are not aware, it is a photography session that is a smaller version of what a photographer’s full session would include. It usually has fewer images and shorter shooting time. The specifics can vary from photographer to photographer. Most typically I see them used for families around the holiday season for those lovely holiday cards filling up your fridge, but you could undoubtedly snag these for other types of sessions – engagements, seniors, milestones, etc.

RUNNING OUT OF TIME?

Not a big surprise with our packed schedules, and more often than not, attending a photo shoot is not everyone’s favorite way to spend time. (Not for me, I never get sick of them. The experience of creating with people never gets old… but I’ve always been a photography nerd.) My guess would have been cost as the most significant factor. I guess you do learn something new every day.

The time factor is terrific if you want to knock them out and have them done.

However, use your best judgment for your family. Limited time is great if everyone is ready to go, shows up on time, and you only need a handful of images. Yes, us pros can work with even cranky kids, but I am always mindful my kids can take a minute to warm up and look away the minute the camera comes out. Our best sessions are when our photographers fade into the distance, and the boys have some time to play, explore, and forget what we are doing… that doesn’t always happen in 15 minutes.

MAXIMIZE YOUR MINI

Other ways to set yourself up for success:

– Picking locations that would be interesting to members of your family

– Making sure everyone is rested and fed

– Maybe even learning toward to the outfit that is a little less uncomfortable

– Hey – what about an adult beverage of choice for Dad (Or Mom – there is typically one parent getting dragged along)

– Ice cream treats for everyone to celebrate when they are done to round out the event… and maybe even have them looking forward to next year

Time goes fast and how important it is to record those fleeting moments that make up this wild thing we call 'life'. That is why I feel, more strongly then ever, that it is very crucial to be as unobtrusive as I can be when making photographs of families so that I do not interrupt those moments that make this whole thing worthwhile and precious. To document those little moments that you will look back on and make you smile is not just for you, the parent, but more so for your children. For them to have an honest record of how your life and family were in truth. Life is too short not to.
