So we have a secret about our mini sessions!! Well, it’s not really a secret, just probably something a lot of people might not know! I do mini sessions places other than Wake Forest!!! I don’t do it all of the time though. There are a lot of details to make it work! This November it all came together for me to do family photography near Apex! Two of these families have been long term clients (and friends:)!) and Kristin (the first family pictured) contacted me with the idea.
Kristin and her husband (who’s name is also AJ!!) wanted updated pictures and had friends and family who wanted sessions as well. So we were able to do 4 different mini sessions with some combined family pictures in the middle. One of the families generously offered their family farm property for the mini sessions. It was so fun shooting there (I actually did some sessions there a few years ago too!). I love public parks but with those come extra people and other photographers. So not having to worry about either of those factors was nice. It’s also a gorgeous piece of property so that was a definite plus as well!
So here’s some details on how it all comes together and some things to keep in mind! The main requirement is that there are at least four families who want to book a mini session for that location. I love photographing families, but this is also a job for me and has to make sense for the travel time involved. The other piece to having four families is that all have to book and sign the contract within the reservation timeline. If one family ends up backing out during scheduling, then we can’t continue with scheduling unless a replacement is found. Finding a day that works for everyone can sometimes be the hardest part but it usually ends up working out! One thing that helps is if you have a location in mind or some suggestions since I’m not from and usually haven’t visited that area!
For right now in my life, I typically stay within an hour of Wake Forest. But never say never (anyone else catching that Bieber reference?! haha) Pull a few families together, some date options and some beautiful properties and let’s get talking!!!
