Our Next Mini Session Will Be Announced Soon!

What is a mini session?

Mini sessions are conducted at a specific location and are twenty minutes in length.  Only one outfit and one location (predetermined by photographer) is allowed.

This session is for families of all ages—up to four participants are included in session pricing (please add $15 for each additional person).

**Please note that we will only allow ONE household family per time slot.  Immediate families only, no combined families.**

May I book multiple mini sessions together?

For this particular session, we are only allowing one session per family.

What is the cost of the mini session?

The cost is $99 (up to four participants) and includes 10 fully edited images on disc. Elizabeth & Christian will choose the best 10 from your session for your disc. Session fee will be due at the time of booking.

Paypal, cash or checks are accepted.

How do I sign up for a mini session?

Email us at  Include Parents name, child/children’s name(s), ages, and whether you would prefer a morning or evening session time.  Inquiries will be responded to on a first come first serve basis.

What if it rains or the weather is bad on the day of our mini session?

In case of inclement weather, mini photo sessions will be canceled and rescheduled at a future date and time. If you have any questions about weather, please call Elizabeth Sprague at 503-962-0486.

What if I need to cancel my Mini Session?

Your booking fee is non-refundable. The only way we can refund a mini session is if we can fill your space. We DO NOT re-schedule mini sessions as they are special themed sessions designed to be back to back in one day. We are able to offer a discount from the regular session fee by only setting up the event once. If for any reason you cannot make your session you can pay the difference and upgrade to a full family session, but we can not guarantee it will be the special theme.

Can I use the mini session for family pictures?

As long as they follow the theme of that mini session. All mini sessions will follow the theme described (ex: mud, paint, holiday, etc.)

Can I get a map to the mini session?

We will email you the address of the location to be used at  We include this information in a private email to disclose the location to participants only.

When will I receive my pictures/CD?

Please allow approx 2 weeks for editing. Your pictures will then be sent on a disc to the address you provided.

What to wear?

Remember to use patterns, textures and layers to add visual interest.  Select clothing that is poppy, vibrant and fun! Choose colors that are deep, rich and intense! Textured fabrics, such as denim, cable knits, and corduroy, photograph beautifully. Layers can be added and removed to create different looks in minimal time. When it comes to jeans, opt for the darkest indigo wash. These tend to be the most flattering and least dated. Most importantly, we want everyone to be casual and comfortable in their attire.

What to bring?

We will provide props and themed background materials—but if you have a cute idea—bring it along!

When to arrive?

On-time of course! Please don’t be late as this will put us behind schedule. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early.

Don’t wait to sign up! Mini sessions fill up fast!

We’re looking forward to another successful mini-session!
