Father’s Day Mini Sessions

Capturing natural moments of fun, personality & connection that you will treasure forever

Relaxed, fun, natural and unposed, these quick sessions will capture the essence and heart of father-child bonds. The last few years have highlighted how much we cherish our time with our families so let’s celebrate Dad’s and Father figures this year with some memorable photos playing with their favourite little people. There’s no stuffy posing here, no saying ‘look at the camera and say cheese’! Oh pass a bucket! These quick and easy portrait mini sessions will capture characters, funny faces and all. Don’t worry about being shy or awkawrd, I have games and tricks up my sleeve to make your relax, quite honestly I’ll be the silliest one to laugh at!! 

20 minutes is all it takes to catch some beautiful photos to update your family album and proudly display on your homes walls. Grandad’s will get more joy out of gifted photos of his son and grandchildren than he will a bottle of whisky too! Photos of your own family deserve to be smiled at and enjoyed everyday!

What should the kids wear?
You don’t need to dress them super smart unless you want to and they’re happy with that on the day. Do try to dress them in plain clothes, no character t-shirts or large logos as they are very distracting in photos. If you’re bringing 2 children they don’t need to wear the same but try to make sure their t-shirts/jumpers/dresses etc complement each other. For instance we don’t want one child wearing orange and the other wearing hot pink, they just don’t work together! Or one in large florals and another in checks. Plain clothes work best. Try to avoid white as the studio background will be dark so darker clothes blend in and therefore put the focus straight on faces, which is what we want. 

How many children can be booked in one session?
A maximum of 4 please. These sessions are only 20 minutes with little time between sessions so the more children there are the less variety there will be, and the quicker they will need to listen to instructions!

Can parents be in the photos too?
You can if you want too! These are not styled sessions so there won’t be any props in the studio for sitting. You’ll need to all stand together, kneel or pick up your children if possible. The intention for these sessions is for kids to stand, be themselves and quickly capture portraits like those shown above. 

What if we’re late?
To get the most out of your 20 minute session it would be prudent to be on time! If you are late your session will be cut accordingly so as not to impact on the next session. If you miss your time slot entirely and all sessions are fully booked we will try to rearrange it for another Saturday but you may not get your print before Mother’s Day. 

When will we get our photos?
Your photos will be edited and uploaded to a private online gallery within 2 weeks. You will then be able to choose 2 high resolution photos to download immediately and 1 photo which I will have professionally printed and mounted then posted to you in time for Mother’s Day gifting. Your gallery will have up to 10 photos to choose from.  

Can we buy extra photos?
Of course! The price will depend on how many photos are in your gallery so you’ll have the option of buying individual photos or the whole gallery when it’s ready for you to view it.
