Back-to-School Mini Sessions

It’s almost that time of year again.. books, pencils, backpacks.. Back to School time! For parents, I hope you enjoy these adorable back to school parodies as much as I did, reminds me of my teaching days :)

Whether it’s the first day of school or the first day of their new grade or of high school, it’s an important moment that deserves to be captured. Once again this year, we’ve planned for our new set of Back to School Mini sessions. Check out images from the last few years’ photos for inspiration!

What If?

What if it rains? If the weather does not permit us to safely or pleasantly complete our mini sessions, you will have a choice of re-locating your session to the studio or participating in the rain-date of October 5th 2014.

What if I cannot make the rain-date? Not a problem, since our mini sessions will be moved the the studio for the same day (and allocated time) if weather prevents the outdoor sessions, you still have the opportunity to participate.

What if my child gets sick or injured and cannot participate? You have the option to apply your mini session fee to another session, or to receive a partial refund if adequate notice is given.

What if I don’t like any of the photos? Given the time we have and our expertise, we do our very best to make sure your child is at-ease and we are not afraid to act like a fool in order to get some sweet smiles and to encourage laughter. Since we unfortunately have no control over your child’s personality or mood that day, we cannot guarantee that you will love every single portrait. We do however encourage parents to bring bribes or rewards if they know their child may be shy or stubborn.
