Mini School Sessions!

I'm so exited to annouce BACK TO SCHOOL mini-sessions!!
Mini Sessions include 15-30 minutes shoot time as well as 5-10 edited images on disc

DATES: Friday August 17 through Sunday August 19

TIMES: 9am - 3pm

LOCATION: Merced Area (details will be privately emailed)


How does a mini session differ from a full session?

Our regular photo sessions usually last an hour and a half to two hours in length and at the location of your choice. Mini sessions are conducted at a specific location and are fifteen to thirty minutes in length. Only one outfit and one location (location predetermined by photographer) is allowed. Full sessions tend to work best for a child who is shy and may need some time to warm up to their surroundings.

The mini session includes up to 2 children per session booked.

May I book multiple mini sessions together?

You may book more than one session in a row. In fact, it is recommended that you book multiple sessions if you have three or more children.

What is the cost of the mini session?

The cost is $40 and is due upon the day of the photo session

How do I sign up for a mini session?

Email us at dmgphoto7@yahoo.com  Include Parents names, child/children’s name(s) and ages, if you prefer a morning or afternoon spot and your preferred date (Friday,Saturday or Sunday) preference. Remember that only 2 children are allowed per session. Inquiries will be responded to on a first come first serve basis. 

Can I get a map to the mini session?

We will email you the address of the location to be used at mapquest.com We include this information in a private email to disclose the location to participants only. The generalized location will be in the Merced, CA area.

When will I receive my pictures/CD?

About a week after mini sessions conclude.

What to wear:

The theme will be a relaxed fun, back to school session. Remember to keep the outfits cheery, bright and fun! Use patterns, textures and layers to add visual interest. Select clothing that is poppy and vibrant! Think about layering leggings with cute skirts, vintage dresses, petti rompers, and for boys, brightly colored shirts and jeans with a vintage flair would be perfect! When it comes to jeans, opt for the darkest indigo wash. These tend to be the most flattering and least dated. Most importantly, we want everyone to be casual and comfortable in their attire. Be sure to include accessories, hats, scarves, etc are a great way to change up an outfit in minimal time!

What to bring?

We will provide props and themed background materials such as desks, apples, old books, etc.—but if you have a cute idea—bring it along!

When to arrive?

On-time of course! Please don’t be late as this will put us behind schedule. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early.

Don’t wait to sign up! This mini session will fill up fast!

So looking forward to another successful mini-session!
