Information & Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Valentine's Mini Session cost and what is included?

$100 and this includes 5 edited high-resolution images of your choice, with the option to purchase more.

Can I purchase additional photos?

Yes! The Valentine's Mini Sessions include 5 photos. You can purchase additional images for an additional $10 each. Or, you can also purchase the entire gallery for a discounted price.

Available Dates

Saturday, January 30th and Saturday, February 6th.

How long do Valentine's Mini Sessions take?

It depends on your kiddo(s)! A mini session takes approximately 15 minutes - give or take!

What combinations are included?

This depends on who is being photographed: whether it's your entire family or just the kids. 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! Or, if we're photographing just the kids, we'll get a picture of all of the kids together, each individual child, etc.

How many setups are included?

This year we have one Valentine's setup: "XOXO". This includes the XOXO balloons as well as the red, pink, white, and silver balloons.

How old can the child(ren) be?

Any age! From babies to adults - let's create a memorable session that works for you.

Where does the session take place?

The Christmas Mini Sessions take place in my home studio in Lethbridge.

Props

In previous years, I have provided Valentine books, red heart glasses to wear, etc., as props for children to hold/read during the session. However, this year due to Covid policies, I will not be providing any additional props. If you would like your children to read a Valentine book in the photos, or hold a Valentine trinket, please bring your own. Please note that this includes blankets. In our sample gallery there is a white blanket but this will not be available during the mini session, please bring your own if you'd like, and/or if you have a baby to be photographed. Tip: often the dollar store is a great place to find these things for a good price. Please do not bring anything "extra" into the studio - only what you need for the duration of the session (as part of our Covid precautions).

How do I get my photos?

The photos are delivered in an online gallery, sent via email. This initial gallery will be your Proofing Gallery with low resolution unedited photos. This Proofing Gallery will be sent to you within 72 hours of your session. You will choose your favourite five images by "hearting" them. When choosing your photos, select for the faces and posing of the people. Once you've chosen your favourites, I will edit them (crop, white balance, exposure, etc.) to match the style of the sample gallery you have seen. You will let me know once you've chosen your favourite images. After that, within 10 days, I will replace the low resolution proofing images with your high resolution edited images. I will notify you when I do so, at which point you will be able to download your photos. You'll receive an email with download instructions.

How do I book?

Please send Sheree Hartung Photography a message on Facebook to review available dates and times.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes. Once we have confirmed your session date and time, a deposit of $50 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.

Covid Safety Measures

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. Bare feet for the photos is suggested. 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, including, but not limited to: door handles, railings, etc. 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.

Returning Client Discount

The returning client discount is unable to be applied to Valentine's Mini Sessions 2021.

Washrooms

Because the mini sessions are only 15 minutes, there will be no washrooms available. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Water and Welch's

In the past, water bottles and Welch's fruit snacks were provided during sessions. Due to Covid precautions, these will not be available during Valentine's Mini Sessions. No food or drink allowed inside the studio.
