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 $175 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.
Our professional photographer 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.

Very good and fast 4/5 by Jacki Seymour 31-5-2016
Location was lovely, photographer really personable. Natalia did an amazing job with the photos. The kids weren’t really cooperating on the day so I’m blown away by the shots she managed to get - they’re beautiful!!! 4/5 by Annette Weir 2-5-2016

Very happy with how it was organised. We are thrilled with the photos. 5/5 by Melanie De Cressac 16-3-2016
Photographer had lots of ideas and worked well with the kids.
She captured unplanned shots - when one the girls was smelling flowers in the background.
Use of bubbles was fantastic!
30 minutes is just enough time for a shoot. 5/5 by Tina Zanatta 1-2-2016
It as great. Natalia and her helper (so sorry forgot her name!) were wonderful and particularly great with my little girls who are only 4 and 2. The 30min timeframe was perfect for them as they couldn't focus for too long. We're planning on doing this every year from now on. 5/5 by Amanda Lizier 24-11-2015
It was a very good experience. Was great that there was a helper, she helped keep the toddler busy. 5/5 by Daphna De-Shiffer 26-10-2015
Great idea. Affordable. Stunning location choice. It was nice and flexible and relaxed. We could request what time of shots we wanted. 4/5 by Sarah Kerrsmith 11-9-2015
I think it is a fabulous idea. It was short and sweet especially as the kids have short attention spans. Kate was great with the kids, and giving suggestions for family poses. Looking forward to seeing the photos. 4/5 by Ellen Hird 27-7-2015
