2017 Fall Mini Sessions | Versailles, MO


You GUYS!!!!!  It’s TIME!!!! I am having my first ever Fall Mini Sessions in less than two months!!  I have gotten SOOO many requests for these so I thought we would try them out this year and see how they go!

Here is a quick run-down of the info for my Fall Family Mini’s this year!


The two dates I’m offering the mini sessions are the evenings of:  Friday, October 20th and Saturday, October 21st.  Location will be outdoors at a location in Versailles, MO.  I will e-mail you the exact location prior to your session as it gets closer to time.  I like to wait and see what the trees are doing and how everything is looking before I nail down the location. The pictures in the post are examples of pictures I have taken during the fall on our property.


All sessions will be 20 minutes long.  This is perfect for those kids (and let’s be real…husbands, lol)  who don’t want to be forced into an hour + long photo session. 20 minutes is short and sweet and there is no excuse you can’t squeeze one of these bad boys in!

Since we only have such a short time to get these images, I will be limiting the outfits to just one.  However, if you want to dress in layers and have simple outfit changes I am completely fine with that! (Examples of what I think of as a “simple outfit change” would be taking a scarf,  jacket, or necklace on or off to add some variety to your pictures.)

After the mini sessions, I will post ONE image for each person’s session on my Facebook page as a sneak peek. The remaining images & a print release will be emailed to you within two weeks via an online gallery where you can download them & print them wherever you choose.  If you choose the package with the canvas or Christmas cards you will be able to order those directly from your online gallery and those are usually back in 1-2 weeks.

Each session covers up to 6 people. (After 6 individuals, there is a $15.00 cost per additional person.)

I am not doing Christmas Mini Sessions, and I will not be taking ANY other regular family sessions for the rest of the year!  So if you want any family pictures this is the time to do it! If you plan on using these pictures for Christmas cards, feel free to dress Christmasy for these sessions! I’m not going full-on Fall themed for this reason.  There will be no pumpkins or hay bales or any kind of fall “props”….just pretty fall colors from trees in the background.  So you can totally use them for Christmas.  And you’re getting them done in October so you will be way ahead of everyone else for getting on those Christmas Cards this year.  *highfive*


Package One- $125

Package One is my base package with no physical products, just 5 images in both color and black and white. You will be able to download them from your online gallery link and will come with a full print release.

Package Two- $275

Package Two is an upgrade from 5 to 8 images that will come both as a color version and a black and white. In addition to the 8 images, you will receive a 16 x 24 canvas of whichever image you choose!

Package Three- $399

Package Three is an upgrade from 8 to 10 images that will come both as a color version and a black and white.  In addition to the 10 images, and the 16 x 24 canvas you will receive 25 “Ready to Mail” Christmas Cards.

Design and Card:  

You get to choose from over a hundred Christmas Card designs.  Printing will include your choice of Matte or Semi-Gloss Press Paper.  You can choose between a 4″ x 5.5″ or 5″ x 7″ size and the imprint is two-sided, full color.

Envelopes and Labels :  

You will receive 25 white envelopes for each of your Christmas Cards. As a BONUS….if you can provide me the addresses where you are sending your cards to in excel format (I will provide the template for you to fill in), I can print and apply those labels for no extra charge.  I will “stuff and seal” each of your printed cards and apply both the return label and the “to” label.


So all this means I will hand you your stuffed, sealed, labeled Christmas cards that will be COMPLETELY mail ready!  You just have to slap a stamp on them and mail them whenever Christmas starts closing in!  *doublehighfive*

Upgrade:  You will have choice to upgrade to premium paper, foil stamping, colored or lined envelopes, or more than 25 cards if you like.  The pricing for each of these upgrades will be provided upon request.

Signing up is done in two easy steps!

IMPORTANT:  After you have selected your time slot I will send you an e-mail with the link to your session agreement and invoice within 24 hours.  A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot.  This deposit is non-refundable if you decide to cancel last minute, or if you are late and miss your scheduled time so please keep that in mind.

If it is not signed/paid within 48 hours of receiving it I will have to open your time slot back up so that everyone gets a chance.
