2020 Fall Mini Session Planning Guide

KCP_1973

I’m so excited that you have booked a Fall Mini Session with me!  We are going to have fun and I look forward to creating beautiful images for your family to cherish!

LOCATION:
Spring Lake Park Reserve/Schaar’s Bluff.  8500 127th St E, Hastings, MN 55033

Meeting location at the park: We will meet right outside of the Gathering Center Building (look for signs when entering the park)

*Please plan on arriving a few minutes early so we can start shooting right at your scheduled start time. The Gathering Center is about a 2 minute walk from the parking lot.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?
It’s best to keep the coordinating simple. Try not to overthink it.  I recommend picking 2-3 complementary colors and carry them throughout your outfits.

This time of year, the weather can be unpredictable, however we will plan to go ahead with your photos regardless of temperature.  The only time we will reschedule is if it is raining during your scheduled time frame.  I recommend wearing extra layers for cold days. You can bring jackets along or a big warm blanket for a quick warmup in between shots.

*Don’t forget to choose something that your family will feel good in!  It will shine through in your photos!  CLICK HERE FOR IDEAS

WHAT DO WE BRING?
I would recommend bringing a blanket to sit on for some poses if you choose.

-If you have young children who may not want to take photos, a tiny treat as a reward can sometimes work well (something that can be eaten quickly between photos and is not messy such as mini marshmallows or smarties that dissolve fast). 

WHEN WILL I SEE MY PHOTOS?
Within 2 weeks of your session, I will have your final images edited and in your own private online viewing gallery.  You will then be able to download them instantly in high resolution for printing as you wish!

*I do recommend using a high quality print lab such as Mpix or Nations Photo Lab for best results.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL MINI SESSION
1. Plan outfits in advance.
2. Get plenty of rest.
3. Make sure children are well fed.
4. Don’t forget the props (a blanket to sit on for some poses is recommended) or anything else you’d like to incorporate.
5. Arrive early so we can start shooting right at your appointment time.
6. Have fun!
7. Watch for a sneak peek on Facebook within 24 hours.

I am looking forward to our time together!  It’s going to be fun!
