Christmas Minis 2015

Christmas Mini Sessions

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Well, not really, but it is time to book your Mini Session!  This year we’ll be shooting outside of a cozy log cabin, and on the rustic trail right beside it.  I’ll add a simple pine wreath to the door, and bring along some wool blankets in greys and plaids to wrap around your littles for a few shots.  Here are all the details you may need:


– Cost: $250 weekend/ $225 weekday

– Includes a 20 min session and 10 high resolution digital images of your choice

– You’ll have the option of purchasing more images if you choose

– You’ll also have the option of ordering reasonably priced prints through your gallery, which I encourage as I can guarantee the quality of the final product

– Immediate family only please

Location (important!!)

The cabin is at Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver.  It is a 15-20min walk on a wide trail to get from the parking lot to the cabin.  The trail is stroller friendly, but bumpy and hilly in places, so baby wearing is definitely a good option.  There’s an indoor washroom right next to the cabin, but it’s very bare bones (no mirrors).


– Link to book: Big Cartel

– Booking will go live on Monday Oct 5 at 9:30am

– Full payment due upon booking

– Dates: Wed Nov 4 (rain date Fri Nov 13) + Sat Nov 7 (rain date Sat Nov 14), sessions start every 30min from 11:30 – 2:00

A note about mini sessions

As the name states, a mini session is a very short session.  The goal will be to get some great photos for cards and gifts, so the focus will be more posed images than candid.  You know your kids best, and if you think that achieving posed images within 20min could be a major challenge, then a full family session is definitely money better spent!  Although I’m booked for 2015, I can recommend some great local family photographers.  Contact me if you’re not sure 🙂
