Mini Sessions - A Thousand Words Photography By Anna-Marie

Mini Sessions

Here you will find any current Mini Sessions that I am offering. These are mini photo shoots and discounted from a full length session.

They are different to a full session in that they will last 25-30 minutes long and you will only receive 5 - 10 images max per viewing gallery compared to 25 images in a full gallery.

Mini sessions are only available on a limited time only and have a set location, whereas on a normal photo shoot, you are able to choose your own location. 

These discounted sessions are based on a first come, first served basis. 

There are currently no mini sessions scheduled. Please come back soon.

The leaves are beginning to fall and I am super excited to now be offering Autumn Mini Sessions! Autumn is a colourful time of year and is perfect for photographs. These sessions are available for children, families or pets and will take place the week commencing October 21st through to October 28th. There are only 3 sessions available per day so please book early to avoid disappointment.

How do the mini sessions work? 

- Outdoor sessions at a location in Yate, South Gloucestershire.

- Sessions are 25 minutes

- Sessions are heavily discounted from normal sessions and is a perfect opportunity to create some lovely autumnal memories.

- £65 for a 25 minute session, including one 10 x 8 print of your choice and an online viewing gallery.

- Other Print and Digital Packages are available to purchase after your session 

- These sessions are for up to 2 people or one pet only due to limited time. If you have more than 2 people who would like the session, please book a full session.  

- There is a 50% booking fee required when booking, with the remaining monies being payable on the day of your shoot.

- Christmas cards are available to purchase after your session.

Full sessions are also available to book if you would like more time at your session and more images in your final gallery.

Why choose a mini session?

You may only want one or two photographs for your wall. You may have young children who get bored easily and do not want to book an hour session. You may want a taster into what a photo shoot entails. Mini sessions are great because they are only 25 minutes long and are cheaper than a full session. You also get a print included in the price! 

When are they? 

Autumn Mini sessions are booking from the date commencing 21st October, 2017 until early November.

Christmas sessions are booking for Saturday 18th November, Saturday 25th November and Saturday 2nd December.

Who are they for? 

These mini sessions are for 2 people due to time contraints. So it could be for you and your partner or your child, your 2 children, you and a sibling or friend. It could be for a pet (one per session). 

Children must be able to sit unattended, so these sessions are not suitable for newborns and babies. 

What if it rains? 

If the weather is bad on the date we have booked, I will have another rain date which will usually be the day after. If the week looks rainy, then the following week will be available for your session. 

What should I wear? 

The sessions will be in a park or woodland, so please dress for the weather and wear something warm. Dress comfortably and be yourself, but please come colour co-ordinated with anyone else in the photo shoot. Reds, Greens, Creams, Browns and Blacks work well for autumn shoots. For Christmas sessions, Reds, Golds and Rich colours are perfect.

Please keep brand names discreet. Try to avoid trainers if possible, and come colour co-ordinated with anyone else being photographed.

Where will they be held?

The sessions will be held in a park or woodland area in Yate, North Bristol. I will confirm post code and directions with you upon booking.
