Valentine’s Mini Sessions

Valentine’s Mini Sessions were shot several weeks ago to give parents the time to create cards for their children’s class at school or daycare.

Valentine's Mini Sessions
Is she not the cutest? Her prompt was, “look at me like the librarian.” Kids are the very best!

Mini Sessions are scheduled through out the year

Petite sessions are a great way to get updated photos of your children and also gives you the option to quickly meet NicCole and her assistants. Mini sessions move quickly which makes them ideal for children. You can join our VIP list of families who receive early scheduling emails before they are shared on social media. (Most of the time they dont make it to SM. This may be why you sometimes wonder, why didn’t I see those?)

More than memorable photos its a fun experience for your children
Bringing the 80’s back. “N” your gorgeous!

We offer several different mini sessions each year

Our wildly popular mini session with Santa is in November (This mini books in August).

Fall and Christmas mini sessions for families are also booked in August.

Other children’s mini photoshoots are:

Mini Sessions aren’t just for children

Although most of our mini sessions are for children during the holidays I offer FAMILY mini sessions, fall portraits and Holiday minis. It gives parents a quick photoshoot to grab a yearly portrait for Christmas cards and bonus I get to squish your littles. It’s all about the babies with me. They always seem to still the show. I like playing games with them during the session and sending them home having had a good time while they were here.

My biggest photography tip for parents is allow them to be children. Thats when you get their true personality.

I not sure who enjoys minis more

Between my assistant Jessica, the kids, parents or myself. Let me draw you a mental picture of this photoshoot………My studio, Disney & Kids Bop on Pandora, me dancing like a silly mad woman and Jessica poking me with her Valentine’s glasses, high fives and lots of laughs.

The children think its great, moms are use to my antics, because typically I have photographed these children from baby bump on and dad is 100% sure I am cRaZy!

Shout out to these sisters mom…she is the best!

How often do families do these Valentine Mini Sessions?

I actually met the sister’s above, family at a Valentine mini session, when at that time when they were a party of three. I was so honored to photograph mom’s maternity, “R’s” newborn and all the mini sessions. My clients constant support melts my heart. Most mom’s will pick up a Santa session and another mini sometime through out the year.

Do you ever have children who dont won’t to participate?

Yep. Typically they relax and decide they want to be apart of what’s happening. You would never imagine, but the little guy below winking at my camera…….he wasn’t sure he wanted to do any photos. He came around 🙂 His sister was stealing the show and having so much fun he couldn’t resist.

I photograph children for the serotonin boost….seriously the are so fun!
