Great question! I wish I could tell you definitively :)
It completely depends on the weather. Typically they bloom for a week, maybe two, at the end of May.
We can include whatever you'd like! We could use this set for Mommy&Me, family, milestone, headshots, grad, maternity, etc...only extended families are excluded due to the nature of this mini session. Let's talk about your vision and create beautiful images together.
Because of the nature of these sessions, because we are waiting for Mother Nature and we don't know exactly how long the blossoms will be blooming for, I am not booking in advance.
If you are interested, I will add you to my waitlist. When the blooming begins, I will send a message to everyone who is on the waitlist, and those people will get to choose their slot before I open it up to the public. Spots will be booked on a first come/first serve basis.
Because of the location, these sessions will take place in the late afternoon or evenings before the sun sets. Likely I will be booking weekday sessions, and possibly weekends too depending when the blooming begins.
The cost is $100 for ten photos, with the option to purchase additional photos:
--Single additional photos: $10 each
--10 additional photos: $75 (value of $100)
--15 additional photos: $100 (value of $150)
--20 additional photos: $125 (value of $200)
--Entire gallery of 30+ photos: $150 (value of $200+)
A proofing gallery is an online gallery of 20-40 photos that are unedited with a large watermark across the photos. This proofing gallery is emailed to you within 72 hours of your session.
In this proofing gallery, you will "heart" your favourite images. Once you are done choosing your favourites, you will let me know and I will begin to edit your chosen images.
Once your chosen images have been edited, your gallery will be updated with the edited images, watermark removed, and with the ability to download, save, print, or share your images.
The number of photos available in your proofing gallery depends on the kind of session, if there are kids, how many kiddos, etc. If there are multiple children, you're more likely to have more photos in your proofing gallery because we'll take photos of the kids together as well as individually. If you've got just one kiddo, we can still give you a great gallery with lots of images to choose from. Additionally, how many photos you end up with depend on the kiddos and how they feel about photos..,Kiddos run the show (I encourage bribery), but I assure you that we will end up with fabulous images regardless.
As many siblings as you have in your family (only one immediate family per booking). No extended families during Blossom Mini Sessions.
If you're bringing multiple children: we will do photos of the kids together as well as the kids individually.
I suggest avoiding large logos, avoiding hats, avoiding anything too bold in colour or pattern. For multiple people, coordinating colours is better than directly matching. Adding texture works as well: adding a cardigan or sweater. I am always more than happy to help you choose what to wear, and I can help you with what will look best in your photos. Feel free to send me photos of your outfits.
Once you've chosen your favourite images and I've edited them, you will receive an email with access to your online gallery. You will have a four digit pin required to download photos. Once your favourite photos have been edited, they are yours to download, save, print, share, etc.
These mini sessions are 15 minutes long: short and sweet. While that may not seem like very long, I assure you that we can capture beautiful images in that time frame. I work fast with kiddos :)
Blossom Mini Sessions take place in Lethbridge.
The address and my phone number will be provided privately to you before the session.
No, there will not be a washroom available during these mini sessions. These mini sessions take place outside with no access to a public washroom.
For the safety of your family and mine, please reschedule your session if you or any of your family members have any Covid related symptoms. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this time.
The returning client discount (25% off) cannot be applied to these mini sessions.
For Blossom Mini Sessions, I do not require a deposit in advance of the session. Because we're waiting on Mother Nature, and because these will be booked fairly last minute, no deposit is required.
Payment is due once you have chosen your favourite images. Payment is determined based on how many images you want in total. This can be sent in an etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
Just your beautiful self! Bags and such can be left in your vehicle.
Unfortunately, the answer is no, because we will be on private property, so we want to be as respectful as possible.
I wholeheartedly encourage bribery when it comes to taking photos of children :) In fact, I use bribery with my own kiddos too, so I've seen it all. No judgement here - whether it's ice cream after the session or a new hot wheels car - bribe away :)
