Vancouver Mini-Sessions for Families

Do you feel like finding time to captured updated family photos can be a daunting task? Vancouver Mini-Sessions are here to make your life easier! Compared to a full portrait session—which requires 1-1.5 hours of photography, and is often 2x the price—mini-sessions are more convenient, easier on the budget and simpler to organize for my clients. (Plus, mini-sessions often suit younger children’s attention span a bit better… making it easier for kids too!)

What are Vancouver Mini-Sessions?

A mini-session is a 15-minute session at a set location, on a set day—both chosen by the photographer. (All you have to choose is the time slot you wish!) After the session, you receive 10 edited digital images. Mini-sessions are designed to be quick and efficient, allowing you to get high-quality photos without having to dedicate excess time to planning and communication.

As a comparison, my standard portrait sessions are 1 – 1.5 hours in length, include 100 edited, digital images and are scheduled on a date and location of your choice. However, they are also more than twice the price—booking a mini-session is a cost-effective way to capture professional photos, more often!

How many people can attend a mini-session?

Mini-sessions are ideal for families, couples, and individuals. Due to time constraints, I cannot accommodate any grandparents or extended family at Vancouver mini-sessions. If you would like to include more people in your session, I recommend either booking two time slots back-to-back, or booking a full portrait session on a different day instead.

Ready to book your mini-session?

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to capture updated family photos in just 15 minutes, receive 10 beautiful images in an online gallery, and take advantage of budget-friendly pricing at only $300 + GST.

I open up limited dates for mini-sessions every season in the Vancouver area. Join my VIP email list to get early access to my new mini-session dates before they’re available to the general public.

How to find a mini-session photographer in Vancouver

1. Read Reviews Carefully

When searching for a mini-session photographer in Vancouver, be sure to read reviews from previous clients. This will give you a good idea of the photographer’s style, quality of work, and customer service. Pay attention to the positive and negative reviews to get a well-rounded picture of the photographer.

2. Browse Their Portfolio

This might feel obvious, but look for a photographer whose style aligns with your vision for your photos. Do you like moody, dark images? Perhaps I’m not the best photographer for you. But if you like natural, joyful photos that feel like real life (but a little bit better) we’re probably a great fit.

3. Pay Attention to Release Dates

Mini-sessions in Vancouver can be in high-demand, especially during the Spring and Fall. If you’re wanting to book with a particular photographer, find out if they have a VIP waitlist. In my business, clients can join my VIP email list for free, which gives them exclusive access to book mini-sessions before they are released publicly.
