Mini Sessions

Mini Sessions are just that - Mini versions of child and family photography. They are limited and seasonal photo sessions that last 25 minutes, and can vary from Pets to 1-2 kids, Summer to Winter and beyond. Mini Sessions run at least ONCE a month, at specific locations, making it easier for local families to have such special memories captured - but also easy for kids that maybe have a short concentration span (which is totally normal!) I have photographed several children, with learning disabilities, during Mini Sessions, because they deserve to have memories to look back on too!

What's the difference between a Mini Session and a Full Session?

A MINI Session gives you that opportunity to have a few photographs of you, your pet, or just the two of you! We stay in one area, capture you snuggling your baby (or fur baby), chatting away, capturing those natural giggles but having fun ALL at the same time!

 

A FULL session is so much more. This gives us the freedom to spend extra time together; for me to bond with your kids at a deeper level, and of course, to bond with you too. We can move around the location of your choice, have an adventure and document family life as it is - unpredictable but super special.

So what type of Mini Sessions do you offer?

What should we wear?

I'm happy to discuss colour options, but the rule of thumb is stick with natural and complimentary colours.

Is there a person limit?

Yes - Mini Sessions are made for groups or families of 5 or smaller. Of course, if there are 1 or 2 persons present, it means we can spend more time together on each individual.

Can pets come too?

Absolutely - if it is just you, your other half and your dog, they are more than welcome to come along! If you have a family of 5 AND a pet, all of which you would like to be photographed, I highly recommend a 60-minute session to allow for more time!

What should we expect?

Relaxed, chilled and natural photographs, created during our time together. I will do everything I can to make you feel at ease; chat with your children so they open up more; and, work with you to capture perfect moments of you and your family.

"Such a talented photographer, I absolutely love my photos I got, she was great start to finish with my daughter who is autistic and it can be very hard to get her to stay in one place, but Rebekah did amazingly with her, the whole session was a lovely experience !"
