Mini Photo Shoot – how does it differ to a normal shoot?

A mini photo shoot refers to the length of time of the shoot.  Where I set up an indoor studio mini photo shoot, I put up one backdrop to use for everyone’s shoots thus saving me a great amount of time meaning I am able to reduce the cost of the session.   The mini photo shoot session last approx. 20 mins producing at least 15 images in a variety of poses.

Themed Mini Photo Shoot sessions:   Christmas and Easter means we can have some fun and attempt to include accessories i.e. santa hat, reindeer antlers, bunny ears etc…  I also have a large selection of general accessories /  fancy dress outfits from bow ties, skirts, flower headbands to hats and cute caps.

Where is the studio based?

Chelmsford, Essex, UK.  Parking is on a public road and is free.  The studio is a home-based studio and space is limited to the model/s and a maximum of x2 grownups.

How Many models can attend a mini photo shoot session?

Due to the length of time and my promise to you to create as many beautiful photos as possible, I limit the number of models to x3 siblings per mini photo shoot.    If there are more than three, I strongly recommend that x2 mini photo shoot sessions ‘back to back’.  This will give you the full range of images, however if you wish to stick to the one mini photo shoot that is fine so long as you understand I will only have time to create photos of the whole group.  (With 3 or less children I would photograph them separately as well as together).

One family per mini photo shoot session.   If you are coming with cousins or friends, I am afraid they will need to have booked their own separate mini-shoot but feel free to book them back to back if you wish to  have x1 group photo all together.

If you would rather book a full 45 minute or 1 hour photo shoot instead of a mini photo shoot, please go to the Prices page in my website for full details.   Book here:  Contact Michelle

What Age can the Models Be?

Due to the length of time of the mini photo shoot, the older the child the more images will be taken in the most varied number of poses.  This is purely down to older children being able to pose themselves from verbal instructions.  For the younger children, a parents hand is always helpful to guide them into the best position and to prevent any escapees who may crawl or run off!  For babies that cannot yet sit up independently, I have a variety of props we can use to create the photos.  This will take more time though and will result in less photos being taken in the time available.

Newborn babies – Unless an older sibling is very capable of holding their newborn brother or sister, or the newborn is coming on their own to the shoot, I’m afraid a mini-shoot may not be suitable this time.  Head to my prices page for full details on booking an hour long shoot where we would have more time to pose baby and younger siblings.

Parents can of course be in the photos too – a maximum of x2 parents plus children please due to the space available.  For a larger family photo shoot, please head to the prices page in this website for full details on booking an hour long photo shoot where we would have more options to cater your needs.

Terms & Conditions:

The mini shoots are being held at my home studio and the number of appointments available are limited.  As such I need to ensure models who book their appointment attend.  In the past I have found the best way to ensure this happens is to receive the Session Fee paid in advance & is non-refundable. Contact me for methods of payment.

Occasionally I use images from mini photo shoots as examples of my work to show potential customers on my website or facebook page.   Please confirm in writing if this is not permitted.  No names are used against the images used so no-one will know who the child is.

Please do no take photos during the photo shoot unless you have spoken to me in advance, thank you.

What happens after the mini photo shoot? 

Please give me a minimum of 1 week to edit your images and create the photo albums on my website.

I will provide you with a password so you can gain access to your photo album found on my website in the ‘Client Area’.  Here you will find all the fully edited images from your mini shoot.  Viewing on a phone?  click the image of the shopping cart to view the products. Viewing on a computer or laptop, use the drop down menu below the image to view the products.    All prints and products are processed at a professional printing lab who will deal with your order.   For those of you ordering digital images, these files will be sent to you in an email on the day they are ordered & paid for.  You can then click on the link in the email and save the images to your computer.

Shall I order the physical Print or the Digital File?

All printed images are processed by a professional printing company guaranteeing quality of product, print, colour & clarity.   Once you have the physical image please note that it is against copyright law to take a copy of this image.    If you purchase the digital file, you can make as many copies as you like!   For a Christmas Mini for example, you may choose to create Christmas cards from your images; email images to friends & family and of course upload them onto social media sites.   The options are endless!    However, I cannot be held responsible for the quality of the prints you make from the digital file.

When will I receive my printed products?

The products will arrive within x1 week from the order date, however, for Christmas mini’s, the closer to Christmas that you place your order, this time may be longer.

What to expect during a photo shoot?

I have written a separate BLOG on my website providing even more information.  Please have a quick read and if you have any further questions simply get in touch.
