Mini session London Ontario
Mini sessions are generally shorter sessions with a certain theme, a lot of times for certain seasons or holidays. What better way to celebrate a certain holiday than with some updated family portraits! There can be many reasons that families decide to do mini photography session rather than for a full session including that they prefer to do many sessions throughout the year to capture how fast the kids grow (check out the mini session pass if this is what you are interested in). Here are some things to keep in mind for your mini session London Ontario.
The location for the mini session is chosen by the photographer. It generally comes down to 2 options- ‘In Studio’ for holidays where it is very prop based like Christmas and Valentines Day and ‘On location’ which is usually a little more candid and season based sessions outside include spring and fall.
The best time of day for a mini photography session is when the children are happiest around naps etc. As limited sessions are available on mini session dates. Be sure to book your session asap to secure a time that works for you.
Colours will depend on season but in general I recommend not to be too matchy-matchy but certainly colour co-ordinate and be aware of not wearing clashing patterns and keep the theme in mind. I recommend not to wear any slogan tshirts or any really ‘fad’ fashion as it will age your portraits. Most of all wear something that fits well and you are comfortable in.
Props for these sessions are provided by the photographer but if you have something that you would like to add that will add to the theme feel free to bring it along.
What to do with the images
Now, you’ve had this wonderful experience and have a bunch of images you know you will love and treasure of this time in your families life, you don’t want these images looked at once digitally and then buried under the mountain of food and pet pics! I really love making special collages for mini sessions that can be printed in a large size and framed for your home or even a special themed facebook cover collage. For the holidays like Mothers Day, Easter, Valentines Day, Christmas etc I can make personalized greeting cards to suit your budget.
– Be sure to arrive on time for your mini session as times are usually back to back on these dates.
– I have lots of tricks for getting lovely smiles but if there is a certain toy or song that gets great smiles be sure to bring that along.
– I have a variety of accessories (bow-ties, hair accessories etc) so before buying something ask me if I have it!

Spring Mini Session Testimonial
We were so happy with our spring mini session we recently had with Erin. She was able get plenty of smiles from our little guy and the pictures turned out amazing! Erin was very quick to respond, and she got our pictures to us just as quick. I'm very glad we chose her and I'm sure that's not the last time we will be in front of her camera 🙂

Lemonade Mini Session Testimonial
Erin took my Wedding photos over a year ago and now my children's photos. She is creative, professional, and a pleasure to work with. My children were wiggly worms the day of the lemonade mini sessions, but she had loads of patience and captured some adorable shots. Thanks again Erin!
