Mini Sessions are great for trying out a family photo shoot for the first time, or updating your family photography a year or two after one of my Family Sessions. However they are extremely limited with only four timeslots each month so early booking is recommended.

What are Mini Sessions?
Mini Shoots are a great opportunity if you just want a few shots, if you want to update your photography, or if you are trying family photography for the first time. The key differences with my standard Family Sessions are that is that Mini Sessions are much shorter, and I shoot several mini sessions in one day. But as a result, they have a lower price to match.
How long is a Mini Sessions?
Mini Sessions are 25 minutes long. Mini Sessions are scheduled back-to-back with other families on the Mini Session mornings. There are 4 timeslots on each Minis morning.
Where are they?
I choose a few locations ahead of time, but it is not easy to predict which locations will look their best on a specific date. So for that reason I usually confirm the shoot location a week or so before the Minis Morning. However I do guarantee that it will be at a beautiful location within 30 minutes drive of Wilmslow or Macclesfield. And I always choose locations where there is somewhere easy to park and not too much walking for little legs.
Do I need to book?
Booking is essential. Mini Shoots are by appointment only. Book your time slot below.
What's the difference between the Mini Session and the regular Family Session?
As Mini Sessions are only 25 minutes, we cannot achieve as much variety and as many shots as a regular Family session which lasts about 90 minutes. I also can't afford as much flexibility as I would be for a regular family session and for some children this may be a problem. I have been in business for nearly 8 years now so have lots of experience working with different children and different moods, so I rarely have any problems. But if you have a child who is very reluctant, extremely shy or doesn't cope well with new situations, I would recommend a regular Family Session instead. For a Family Session we can customise the whole experience around your family and take our time.
What shots can I expect?
I aim to get a minimum of 12 images for your online gallery. I'll work to your wishlist to prioritise what is top of your wishlist - be that a shot of the family together or individual portraits of the kids.
What if it's raining?
I can shoot in any weather except constant rain - so I rarely need to reschedule. However, should we be unlucky enough to have poor weather, I will reschedule your slot to a future mini session morning, free of charge. I would usually aim to schedule a new morning especially for those clients who were affected, within a month of your original date.
