Returning Client Discount
$150 and this includes 5 edited high-resolution images of your choice, with the option to purchase more.
Yes! The Christmas mini sessions include 5 photos. You can purchase additional images for an additional $10 each. You can also purchase the entire gallery for a discounted fee, based on the total number of images in the gallery.
It depends on your kiddo(s)! A mini session takes approximately 15 minutes - give or take!
This is up to you! We will begin with photos of your entire family. If the kiddos are cooperating, we can include other combinations: just the kids, each parent with the kids, each kid individually, etc. We will get through as many photos as we can in the time given!
This year we have one Christmas set: the farmhouse doors with the festive trees on either side. For more formal photos, clients can stand and/or sit on the bench provided. In previous years, we have had a holiday-themed-bed as well. Due to Covid and the need to effectively sanitize in between mini sessions, we will not be doing a bed set up this year. However I understand the desire for Christmas PJ photos! So we will have blankets to put down with the farmhouse doors behind for the PJ photos.
Any age! From babies to adults - let's create a memorable session that works for you.
The Christmas Mini Sessions take place in my home studio in Lethbridge.
In previous years, I have provided Christmas books, faux glasses of milk, faux candy canes, etc., as props for children to hold/read during the PJ set. However, this year due to Covid policies, I will not be providing any additional props. If you would like your children to read a Christmas book in the photos, or hold a Christmas trinket, please bring your own.
The photos are delivered in an online gallery, sent via email. You will choose your favourite five images by "hearting" them. I will then make those five images downloadable. You may choose to purchase single additional images or the entire gallery for an additional fee. The photos are then yours to download, save, print, share, etc.
Please send Sheree Hartung Photography a message on Facebook to review available dates and times.
Good question! I'm pregnant and due at the beginning of December :) I'm only booking Christmas Mini Sessions for September and October to allow myself the month of November to ensure all galleries are returned to clients. Also...just in case baby decides to arrive early :)
Yes. Once we have confirmed your session date and time, a deposit of $100 is required to hold your spot. This is a nonrefundable deposit. The remaining fee will be due after your gallery has been delivered and after you've either "hearted" your favourite five images or you've chosen to purchase additional images.
While cleaning practices have always been in place, everything has been amplified due to Covid. I ask that shoes remain at the door and are not worn inside the studio. I ask that clients sanitize their hands upon entry and wear a mask for the duration of the session (except when being photographed). I will wear a mask for the duration of our shoot because it will be impossible for me to stay socially distanced. I ask that no one "extra" attends studio sessions (grandparents, friends, etc.), only the people being photographed. Everything is cleaned and disinfected before, after, and in between sessions. Because my studio space is in my home, my cleaning practices/expectations are high not only for the safety of your family, but for the safety of my family as well.
The returning client discount is unable to be applied to Christmas Mini Sessions 2020.
