Mini-sessions are short 30 minute photo sessions for up to 6 people – perfect for families with little ones who can’t sit still for too long!
A regular portrait session can cost upwards of $1000, but for $200 you’ll receive 15 professionally edited digital files (chosen by you) in a download gallery (in your choice of colour or black and white), which will be shared with you after the session. You'll also have the option to purchase extra files after the session if you want to.
You can then print out your photos as many times as you like, in whatever size you like.
Professional photographer Catherine Ramsay will capture beautiful, natural moments between you and your family. However, if you’d prefer just some photos of the kids by themselves that’s fine, too.
It’s a great way for mum and dad to get out from behind the camera and into some photos with the kids.

we just wanted to say thanks so much for sending through these lovely photos! We had just moved into a new home the day prior to this photoshoot, and your photographer was somehow able to capture us looking like we’d slept more than the four hours we had. We are also blown away by the photos of our little girl – she’s notorious for her serious expression, so we are stoked that we now have (several) beautiful shots of her smiling! 5/5 by Jacqui 12-5-2021
Photographer friendly snd relaxed. She chose good poses for our group, but gave us freedom and flexibility to try other things too! 4/5 by Kerrin Read 11-1-2021

Thank you for our lovely photos, The mini session was perfect for what I wanted. Catherine was lovely, friendly and easy to get along with. She had great suggestions for the different locations around the park and was happy to fit it my requests. She was wonderful with my 3 year daughter and was able to get her to cooperate during the session which I had been concerned could be difficult. We had a fun time and I have already recommended the sessions to friends. 5/5 by Teresa Swain 13-3-2020

Great experience and great price. The 30 minute session was the perfect amount of time for our kids under 5 years old and we loved the photos. Our photographer, Catherine, was really lovely and flexible to suit our family dynamics on the day. 4/5 by Erica Weideman 5-12-2019

Great photographer and price 5/5 by Helen Arkadieff 13-9-2015
More a 4.5 rating than a 4. We liked the 1/2hr length, perfect for a 1 year old. The chosen location was good, Catherine was easy to find, on time and friendly. Great budget for us too. 4/5 by Kirsten Woolston 3-8-2015
