Mini Sessions - Fall 2019

Currently Booking Fall Mini-Moments Sessions | $150

Forest Park — October 19-20 + 26-27, 2019


Capturing Candid Family Moments!

Join me select dates this October to capture family fun moments — both candid and posed — within the beautiful woodland canopy of Forest Park in NW Portland. Perfect timing for upcoming holiday cards and emails :)

Each session will last an hour (approximately 30 minutes of actual photography time) and accommodate up to six people — pets included! We’ll take a short hike into the park, where you will interact as a family and I’ll capture all the candid fun on camera. We’ll end at a small styled area for a few posed portraits before heading back.

Thanks to the dense tree cover of Forest Park, sessions will occur rain or shine (in case an absolute downpour is forecasted, I will reach out with rescheduling info or a refund). I will have really cute umbrellas if needed and you are encouraged to bring any props or signs you’d like. The styled area will include one festive scene for families to personalize if desired..



How long will the session last? We will have an hour, with main photography time running from 30-45 minutes. Please arrive on time, as there will be another session following yours and lateness will only mean your session is cut down in time. Meaning possibly less photos.

How many photos do we get? 20 images in both HiRes and Social Media Ready formats. The evening of your session you will receive a gallery with the culled photos. You will have a week to choose your 20 favorites, which will be fully edited and sent to you within 5 business days. I encourage you to pick the images as soon as possible and will send along a helpful guide to choosing with your gallery info.

What if I love all of the photos and want more than 20? Additional edited photos will be available for purchase a la carte.

Where in Forest Park are we meeting and is it stroller friendly? The exact location of our session within Forest Park will be provided the week of your session date to ensure we are making the most of fall foliage. Any trail we use will be stroller and dog friendly (on leash).

What should we wear? This is entirely up to you. Some families like to match, others like to coordinate colors and prints. You can dress up or keep it casual. But do keep in mind we will be on dirt paths and will be walking a short bit so comfort is best! And I wouldn’t be disappointed for some cute rain boots and jackets :)

Will you have props? Aside from the small styled posed portrait area, no. So if you want to bring a family sign for your holiday card, Santa hats, hot cocoa, flowers, you are more than welcome.

Who will get the kids to engage? Leave the bells and whistles to mother nature. Encourage curiosity and freedom to explore as your child interacts with you and with the native flora and fauna of Forest Park. It’s such a beautiful world we live in. Also, bring snacks, lots of snacks!

How do we book? Please use the “Reserve Your Session” button above or below. This will take you to Calendly, where you can choose your date + time and lock it in with payment via PayPal.

Are sessions refundable if I have to cancel? All sales are final. You will have the option to reschedule within 48 hours of your session. However, it is not a guarantee that another time slot will be open, in which case you can either keep your current session time or forfeit payment. The only time a refund will be offered is if I feel the need to reschedule due to extremely inclement weather and we can’t find another date that works for you.

What if I don’t see a date or time that works for us or you’re completely booked? Please email me directly at . If there are enough requests for sessions I may be able to add another day or additional times to an existing day.
