These sessions are ideal for children and babies who can sit unsupported and hold on to a swing, or older, but young babies are welcome too!! If you have a young baby who may not be able too, we encourage parents to participate in the shoot! This is an actual swing, but it is only about a foot or so off the grass. Please keep in mind some children may get scared or not want to sit alone. We will do other poses if this is the case!
Sessions will last approximately 15 minutes. Please arrive on time for your session as there will be sessions before and after your scheduled time. If you would like to arrive a little early to get children ready and settled, please arrive no more than 10 minutes early. Shoots will start at the times booked. Late arrivals, session times will not carry over your allotted time slot.

***TIPS TO MAXIMIZE SESSION
-Try not to schedule during nap time
-Arrive dressed and ready to shoot.
-We will have some dresses and hair accessories available. If you plan to use some of ours, please arrive early and in something easy to change in and out of. The bathrooms and parking lot are not too far, but please keep in mind, there will be clients before and after, and the dresses may be in use. This may limit session time if you chose to change into a dress in use prior to you session.
-Mini sessions are fast paced, shorter sessions. We will work hard to get as much as we can during the 15 minute time slots, but please be advised some children may not do well in this type of environment. For kiddos who may need a little extra time, we suggest booking a full session or 2 time slots back to back!
-We recommend 2 back to back time slots if you have more than 3 children under 4 and would like individual images and group images.
**There will be no reshoots for these sessions, if you are unable to make your time slot, or children are not cooperating, or other reasons beyond our control, you can use amount paid as a credit towards a future FULL session.
NO PREVIOUS CREDITS MAY BE USED FOR MINI SESSION TIME SLOTS
***All images will receive our basic artistic enhancements. Additional editing requests for things beyond photographers control (bruises, blemishes, body sculpting, face swaps, hair fixes, etc) are available for an additional charge. Please inquire if you have any questions regarding this. If your child can not/ will not sit alone on the swing, and you want a hand edited, out, it will be an additional charge and sent to an outsourced retoucher.
MAY 7TH SESSIONS WILL BE DELIVERED BY MAY 11TH IN TIME TO POST FOR MOTHER'S DAY
