MINI SESSION PRICE – $200 plus tax ( $160 plus tax for Blue Vine Family Members )

Never in my 7 years of business have I ever run mini sessions promotions, so these are a first for me!

I have learned over the years that there is a certain time of year when the mini session really has it’s place. It is around October and November when families start thinking about holiday photos and want nothing more than one updated family shot for a Christmas card and a new photo of each of the kids for their grand parents. So here you go you guys, I have finally introduced the mini session in to Blue Vine’s calendar!

I will be doing outdoor Fall Mini Sessions at Smiley’s Provincial Park near Windsor in the afternoon on Oct 19th and 26th ( with rain dates also scheduled JUST IN CASE ) . I have yet to photograph any families there but I visited it with my own family last fall and the colours and sheer quantity of gorgeous trees and fallen leaves really made an impression on me. It is the perfect location for Fall Family Photos!

I will also be doing two full days of Christmas Mini Sessions in my studio on Nov 1st and Nov 8th. I will be shooting my classic studio style with a crisp white backdrop and high key lighting for a bright and fun look that will look great on everyone’s wall all year long! To give them a festive feel without a having to use a Christmas tree backdrop, you are encouraged to use your clothing choice to reflect the time of year. I am not talking ugly Christmas sweaters or anything but a slightly more formal look would work well or choose outfits with red, green, silver, black etc as accents.

The Fine PrintYou will be asked on the Mini Session client info form to confirm that you have read this section in detail and agree to the terms and conditions discussed.

– The total cost of each mini session is $200 plus tax.

– A $50 deposit is required to book your time and can be paid by including your credit card info on the client info form, or by sending an e mail money transfer to

– Your balance is due on the day of your session in the form of Visa, Master Card, American Express or Debit. I will have my portable chip reader handing for quick and easy transactions.

– Show up at least 10 minutes before your session time. The sessions are going to be short and back to back so I may not be able to squeeze you in if you are late unfortunately.

– I have never had a problem getting the attention of little ones ( knock on wood ) however, I do have to mention because the session is so short, that if your kiddos are just not having any part of it, no matter what we try as a team effort, I can not be held responsible and no money will be returned. With that said I will do everything in my power to get gorgeous images of your children even if they are not the typical sit and smile at the camera type of shots.

– In the case of bad weather on the Fall Mini Session Dates I have left Nov 2nd and Nov 9th open on my calander as potential rain dates. If any or all of these dates get rained out please keep in mind that these are my only weekend dates left available and if we get really crappy luck all I will be able to offer are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2pm-5pm. I will be as accommodating as possible in such a circumstance but I will not be able to return your deposit if you can not reschedule at any of my available times.

– With your Mini Session fee you will be e mailed an online gallery of between 10-20 proofs to choose a total of 3 high resolution printable digital files from. If you would like to purchase the entire collection of images you are more than welcome to for an additional $200 plus tax or you can also purchase one or two extra files for $40 plus tax each.

– There is a gift certificate included for you with this session for 20% off a Premium Collection for 2015. If you decide you do not want it please feel free to pass it on to a friend who may.

– Finally, Blue Vine Families as usual get 20% off this session fee and the complete collection of files just because you are awesome but unfortunately you can not use the gift certificate to double up your discount so you will have to just pass that little gift on to a friend 😉 Do you want to be a part of this Blue Vine Family?
