Mini Sessions – how does it work?

Spring and Autumn mini-sessions work a bit differently to a standard family photoshoot. But don’t worry I can explain it all for you. Please have a read below and to give you a little idea of how it all works.  I’m always happy to answer any questions on email or phone. So please contact me on 07977 417336 or tessa@tessaclements.co.uk if you’d like a chat.

I run the Spring & Autumn mini-sessions a couple of times a year. Usually on a weekend, at the beginning of April for the Spring flowers and late in October for the gorgeous autumnal colours and fallen leaves. But occasionally I add in extra dates throughout the year. Please click the link below to fill out the form and I can contact you when I have dates available to book.

I run the sessions in a local Beckenham park. Being outside in either Spring or Autumn gives a lovely natural feel to the pictures and having space in the park really helps keep the children relax and stay comfortable in front of the camera.

Each mini-session last 25-30 minutes which is usually plenty of time to get some different shots of you and your family.

I will send an email to you ahead of your shoot with some clothing ideas. The suggestions I send will help you when looking through your wardrobe for ides.
If you have young children it is also worth bringing one of their favourite books and a ‘treat’ to keep them happy and relaxed.

Please don’t worry. As a parent myself I understand your concerns. Every child is different. I get that. So before the photoshoot I contact you to find out some information about your child so I can chat to them comfortably and put them at ease while we’re taking pictures. I’m always happy to be a bit silly in order to get the smiles and giggles we want from them. And if they are feeling a little shy, I have a bag of special props that normally gets them relaxing into a smile at some point.

I’m constantly checking the weather in the few days leading up to the day. If rain looks likely then I ask that you can be available the same time and day the following week to reschedule. Failing that we can wait until my next mini sessions date or have a refund but this happens surprisingly rarely.

I ask for at least 48 hours notice if you wish to cancel or postpone the shoot.
However if someone falls ill last minute then I will do my best to re-arrange your shoot for the next available mini sessions date.

Please fill in the form below so I can contact you with the dates of my next mini-sessions. Or please feel free to call me on 07977 417 336 or send me a message on tessa@tessaclements.co.uk if you have any questions.

I ask for a £30 retainer fee payable at the point of booking which holds your date and time. This is off-set against your final cost which is due on the day of the mini-session.
