When I first started offering mini sessions, it was designed to maximize Christmas portraits for families. However if quickly became an affordable option for families who wanted to participate in family portrait sessions throughout the year. Now I offer Christmas, Fall, Cherry Blossom, and Valentine’s Day Minis. Most of them do happen during the colder months as that’s when my wedding season slows down. And since having kids outdoors during Canadian winter for a portrait session isn’t an option, I decided to transition my clients into using studio rentals to capture these portraits. These spaces come predesigned with a variety of holiday decorations. They’re also climate controlled, ventilated, and still provide a safe environment for everyone involved. And the Valentine Minis format even allowed for families and couples on a tighter budget to still participate.
I know how cherished your children and your memories of them are. At the same time, I understand how the pressures that come with school, travel, work, and after school activities can make it difficult for you to make a family photography session a priority. You want to document your children as they grow and capture all their milestones. But with the daily chaos that is life, their childhood seems to be passing by in the blink of an eye.
So consider this session as an attempt to capture it. For many families, its their child’s first Valentine’s Day. And you are essentially the people they love most. So what better way to spend it, than together.
I deliver you professionally edited images via digital download one week after your Valentine minis. I don’t sensor the images. If they successfully came out, you get it. On the chance you have multiple kids, I composite when possible. If your pet blinks, his eyes will be opened. These are all standard edits included in my package prices. If you’re looking for outfit ideas, Pinterest is a great option.
