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
( Check on ”What to wear during my photo session” HERE)

– 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

2- Sarah Kang Photography

San Francisco, California

Hi, welcome to my website! I’m a San Francisco-based photographer, and I’ve been photographing weddings and families since 2007.  My style is photo journalistic/documentary, and as you may have gathered from my photos, I’m drawn to emotions, beauty, and authentic, natural moments. 

I was born in Korea and raised all over the US.  I’ve also lived in Boston, NY, and Paris. I’ve always loved the adventure of discovering new places.  I love to travel and especially enjoy finding out-of-the-way spots where nobody speaks English. 

I married my best friend and the kindest person I know on a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany. These days you can find us in San Francisco seeking out good wine bars, spending time with friends and family, rock climbing, or brushing up on our Italian – all made twice as fun with our carefree young son (except for the wine part 😉 ).  

Thanks for visiting, I’d love to learn about your story…drop me a line!

One of the best things in life is a good story and that’s what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by.

I get my best images when you’re just being yourselves – natural light and natural emotions!

My name is Igor and I take pictures of people.

I love to run in the morning, in the early mornings, preferably in the forest for 5-7 kilometers, and when the form allows and for 10-15 kilometers. I also like to swim, swim in the water for 1,5-2 kilometers, or better in the sea. I love joy on my parents face, sincere conversations with people close in spirit, to drive my car, practically all the lines of the runner Murakami and wretched Welsh, to watch a movie after which you can not find a place. I like to leave the theater, bringing out something new, unknown. Generally I like people, different … not always it certainly turns out. I like to travel, it is not important where, it is not important with whom, it is important as …
If something from me said resonates with your idea of ​​life, I’m sure we will find a common language.
