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 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.
