A portrait mini session is a shorter photo shoot that lasts about 20 minutes. It's a chance for you to capture pictures of your changing family at times when the world itself is changing--becoming greener, warmer, and delightfully fragrant. The mini session provides up to 30 images for you to print, package or share!
WHERE: Pineland Farms, New Gloucester
The Pineland Farms campus is a glorious place for family portraits, especially on the longest day of the year with the best sunsets ever!
HOW: Sign up for Your Mini Session
The Summer Solstice Sunset Mini-Session is $75 and includes an online viewing and ordering gallery and a mobile app of your favorites. We offer an array of photo products to display these memories: packages begin at $395 and a la carte items, such as prints, start at $50. For details about our packages, send us an email or call!
Generally, no, there is not enough time in a mini session to change. Sweaters and jackets can come on or off, and babies dressed down to diaper covers, but that is about it for outfit changes!
Do you photoshop images?
I will photoshop images once an order has been placed. I do not like the image to look airbrushed; I will, however, remove acne and blemishes when necessary.
What will we do if it rains?
I will be watching the weather that week and will be in touch 2 days prior to the shoot to discuss options. If it rains we will move our session to the following day or inside the studio located at Pineland Farms. If you are ok with mist, it can actually make for beautiful pictures!
Where is the studio?
The studio is located on the beautiful campus of Pineland Farms in New Gloucester Maine on the main floor of Auburn Hall.
Can I purchase a gift card for a mini session?
Yes absolutely! Please let me know where to mail the gift card to.
What is a mobile app?
The mobile app is a custom photo album for your mobile device. It also links to my studio and store so you can stay in touch after the session. They can be installed on as many devices as you would like and can easily share with extended family members. Installing the app takes less than a minute and the images are selected through your online gallery.
Does the session fee come with prints or digital files?
The session does not include any prints, digital files or other products. Those are purchased separately after the session. Because most people do not know what they want until they see the images, I do not include prints or files in my session costs.
How do I purchase the digital files?
Digital images can be purchased individually at $125 per image. They also come included in all framed print orders. For example, if you order a beautiful 11x14 print framed for your home, that corresponding digital image is included for you to make prints with for other family members or include in your annual family calendar etc.
How long does it take to receive my order?
Orders take 4-6 weeks to be delivered after the payment is received in full. If your order includes digital images, digital images will be available for download 2-5 days after payment is received in full.
Can we bring grandparents to the mini-session?
Absolutely! Grandparents are invited and welcome to join in.
Can we include our pets in the mini-session?
Sadly, Pineland Farms cannot accommodate pets.
How long do you keep the digitals?
I guarantee the digitals for 30 days after the viewing session, the length of time of your online gallery. I keep the digital negatives for 1 year for those who have placed an order.
