2023 Limited Time Sets

Family life, it’s like a rollercoaster, isn’t it? One minute, you’re cradling your little ones like they’re the world’s greatest treasure, and the next, they’re off to school, waving goodbye at the gates. It feels like just yesterday our parents were guiding us through homework, and now, in the blink of an eye, we’re the ones looking out for them.

Sure, our phones are packed with memories of our families, but there’s something about those professional family photos that hit you right in the feels. They’re like a time capsule of your journey together. Celebrate and document your families in front of these sets this year.

Is there a limit on family members in the Mini Session Photos?

Yes. There is a 6 person max.  If you have a larger family we can schedule a full family session for you at a time and location that works best for you.

What should I wear to my mini session?

We recommend wearing clothing that matches or compliments everyone in the photo. This does not necessarily mean that everything needs to be the same color, but the style and colors should look intentional. Consider the following:

Should we go with formal, casual or something in between? Avoid mixing and matching casual and formal wear.
Should we stick to a color palette? For example, different tones of blue, red, or another primary color can look great.
Should we be silly? Sometimes a silly theme is perfect for family photos, such as matching onesies.
What matches the scene?  Our sessions are typically in nature scenes, with natural greens and browns. You may choose to either match or compliment the scene.
For more information, please see our wardrobe and makeup guide on linandjrsa.com.

May I bring my own props to my mini session?

Yes! Feel free to personalize your session. Our advice, however, is to not get too elaborate. We want to spend the majority of our time making sure that photos turn out exactly how you want them to look, rather than fiddling with props and trying to make them work.

How many outfits should I bring?

The shorter mini session time frame only allows for one outfit. Please come dressed and ready to go!

May I bring pets?

You may bring your pet, but please ensure that they are well behaved.  Keep in mind the shorter duration of the shoot and understand that getting the right position and expression for your pet may take time that chips into capturing other types of photos.

When should we arrive?

The shoot will start promptly at the arranged time so please be sure to arrive at least 10 mins prior to your official start time.

Do prints come with the Mini Session Promo?

No. You will receive a digital gallery where you can view and download your images directly. If you would like prints, we offer a variety of paper prints, canvas prints, and other wall art options.

Can I get more than 5 images?

Yes. You can purchase additional images via the digital gallery that we send you.

What if we want more time for photos?

You may purchase back to back slots. Or we can work with you to book a full family session that allows you to select the location and have 1-2 hours of photography. To book a full family session email [email protected].

What is your Cancellation Policy?

If you absolutely cannot make your session and you cancel with at least 24 hours notice, you will receive a credit towards a future session. No-shows or cancellations outside the requested timeframe will not receive a credit.
