Mini Sessions

the details about

Here you will find any limited time offerings from DHP.
These are limited edition sessions and only available until Sold Out.


What type of session can these minis be used for? 
Seasonal mini sessions are great for families*, siblings*, simple milestones (birthdays)*, maternity, couples and graduates/seniors. Mini sessions are not designed for newborns, headshots (unless specified) or extended families. Please reach out to DHP to schedule one of these sessions on another date. (*If you have a child or children that take time to warm up to new environments and strangers, mini sessions may not be an ideal fit for you.)


How much is due up front?
Due to the nature of mini sessions, payment is due in full upon booking and is non-refundable but transferable up to one year from the session date.

Where will the mini sessions be located?
Mini Session locations vary and specific information will be included in the information provided with the mini session specific info below.

How many photos will be in my mini session final gallery?
Mini session galleries include 10-15 images for you to choose from.

How does a mini session work?
A mini session is a quick session that yields a few photos for you to use for holiday cards or updating your gallery wall! These sessions are held at a location pre-determined by the photographer and are offered on a limited basis. If you would like to choose a specific location or are looking for a specific date, let's book a full session together!

What happens in the case of inclement weather?
All weather related changes will be at the discretion of the photographer.

What happens if COVID causes non-essential business closures?
All DHP Sessions will have the option to receive a full refund or transfer their time slot to another mini session within 6 months.
