autumn family photo shoot outdoors

Would you love some beautiful photos of your family
but never seem to find the time?

Then my mini sessions are perfect for you. They are designed to make the whole process as easy and enjoyable for you as possible.

I’m running two mornings of family mini sessions in Surrey this autumn using the glorious golden colours of autumn as the backdrop.

“I totally love all of the pictures. Thank you so much for creating these beautiful photographs of our family which have captured the children’s personalities so perfectly. You have such an amazing talent to be able to identify and capture the defining moment.

Looking at the images fills me with pride and happiness every time I look at them.

There is no doubt at all that we will see you again, I am addicted!”
Ailish & David, Surrey

Where will they be?

The mini sessions are likely to take place at Frensham Ponds, near Farnham but this is subject to change. Click here to see some of my previous autumn mini sessions there).

There will be car parking within a 10 minute walk of the mini-session location so there will only be a little stroll to get there. You will be sent exact location details a few days prior to your session.

How are mini sessions different from a full custom session with you?

I’m glad you asked that question as I have a whole page dedicated to the answer! You can read it here.

A mini photo session is perfect for you if:
– you are looking to update your existing family photos
– you would just like prints and digital images from your session, and aren’t  so interested in purchasing frames or albums
– you are wanting to try out lifestyle photography for the first time and see if it’s for you
– you want to buy the session as a present for someone special (I have lovely gift vouchers available!)

A full custom session would be better for you if:
– you have more than 2 children. I need more than 25 mins to do your lovely big family justice! If they are all over the age of 2.5 yrs and will take direction then we should be fine!
– you are looking to purchase some lovely wall art or a fine art album from your session...a custom session would be better for you in this case.
– any of your children are particularly shy or wary of strangers. During a custom session there is no rush and I’ll give them all the time they need to warm up to me.
– or the opposite, any of your children are a little hard to tame! If you don’t think your child will take any direction then it’s probably best to book a full session!

What can we expect?

You can expect to have an enjoyable 25 minutes (yes I promise!) where you’ll get to reconnect as a family.

I’ll photograph you all having a lovely time together and I will also spend some time individually with your children and get lots of great shots of them on their own too. If you just want photos of your children and don’t want to be in them yourself, that’s fine, although I may try and persuade you to jump into a couple of shots. I feel passionately that parents should be in the photos too!

Can I see the results of the last mini sessions you did?

Of course! I have been successfully running mini sessions for 9 years now, you can look through them all here on my blog.

How much are the mini sessions?

The price is £345 per family which includes the following:

– questionnaire sent to you beforehand so that I can find out more about your family
– ‘what to expect’ guide giving tips on what to wear and how to brief the kids!
– 25 minute mini photo shoot on location (the location shoot fee is included in the price)
– secure online gallery with 20 fully edited images live for 5 days
– a beautiful gift box delivered to your door containing four 8×6″ mounted gift prints of your chosen images and the same high resolution images on a USB flash drive ready to print

The normal price for the above package would be over £600 so this offers considerable savings. You are welcome to order additional prints and products but you are under no obligation to do so.

And what if the weather is bad?

If the skies are grey, then that’s no problem and the mini sessions will go ahead. If it is raining then you need to be available at the same time on the Sunday following each date. If it’s raining on that day too (please no!) then I will refund your deposit in full or you can put it towards a full custom session with me.

It all sounds great….how do I book? Please fill in this contact form and say which time slot you would like ideally, then I’ll send you a booking form and an invoice for the £175 deposit to reserve your session. Sessions will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and won’t be confirmed until payment is received. They tend to book up very quickly so please don’t delay!

I look forward to meeting you and your family and creating a beautiful set of photographs for you.

“Love, love, love the photos! In 20 minutes you have captured some beautiful photos which we will cherish forever. I’m excited! I can’t thank you enough.”
Mona & Bhavin, Surrey

“Vicki, I have been literally jumping with joy during the slideshow of our gallery – they are simply the most wonderful pictures I have ever seen in my life and I am thrilled that I am in them too! Just love the expressions on the boys and we all look so relaxed. Thank you so much for this Vicki, you have made me so happy I cant explain it in words (sending you a cyber-space big hug!)”
Ruth & Giles

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the lovely pictures, Amelia immediately declared it was ‘Mama’s birthday’ when she saw the beautiful packaging! The photos are gorgeous. We will treasure them as always, they capture us beautifully at a very happy point in life.”
Sophia & Kash, Surrey

“Oh my, oh my! Vicki, I have to confess that I sobbed looking at the gorgeous photos of our special little family! You have worked your magic and produced an album of happiness!

You have captured us all so well and somehow nothing looks ‘contrived or posed’, just natural fun and laughter! We love them all – each one shows the girls’ personalities perfectly. I knew that we’d love them, but I didn’t expect to love them so much!

What a treasure of memories, thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Julia & Bruce, Guildford – see their mini session here

“Vicki, they are so WONDERFUL! I’m feeling slightly teary as I look at your gallery, you have captured them beautifully. I could not be happier, thank you so much!

I just love every single one, how clever and talented you are. So delighted!”
Alexandra & Mark, Hampshire – see their mini session here
