This is my first year offering fall family mini sessions, and my Sweet Wally families are asking me the difference between a mini session and my typical family sessions.
Before I talk about the differences, I want to talk about the one thing that remains consistent no matter what I’m shooting: that Sweet Wally Style! My goal in capturing my families is capturing connections and those candid moments.
Smiles to the camera are great: I always aim to get one of those shots every session. But those will never be the photos that truly capture your crew. The images that really freeze the heart of your family are the images that show your son’s silly grin, your two year old’s lingering baby curls, your daughter’s absent-minded grab for your hand every walk you take.
These shots will always be the heart of a Sweet Wally session.
The difference between a full family session and a mini session is the length of time, the amount of images delivered, and the amount of storytelling shots we can capture in those different time frames. A full family session is over an hour, delivers 50+ images that capture the big to the small moments and allows us to visit different backdrops at our location to create a truly diverse gallery. A mini session is 25 minutes, delivers 15 images and captures a snapshot of all of those things.
Both offer the ability to capture something for your Christmas cards and your walls, but one is meant to freeze a fraction of what your family looks like now and one is meant to really dive into the story of your family. Personally, I book a full family session every two to three years and book mini sessions in between. I feel that is a good mix of the highlights and the stories.
If you’re interested in capturing the highlight, I’m offering mini sessions in both Bowling Green and Louisville. You can book your session time directly here. If you are wanting the full story captured this year, let’s chat about making that happen here. I would love to welcome you into the Sweet Wally family crew!
