Guys. This has been a year of firsts for me on SO many levels, and in the spirit of new things I’m offering something NEW this fall!

fallminiphotographysessionwithlindsaymayphotographybooktodayMany have asked me if I would ever consider doing minis, and I am excited to offer them this year. I will be offering only FIVE session slots on Saturday, September 20.

What are Mini Sessions?

Mini sessions are a great option for a more affordable professional photo experience. They are short and sweet photo sessions held in a single location. You don’t need an occasion to have stunning photos taken, and they provide delightful memoirs of a special day.

Where will they be held? What if it rains?

We all know how questionable the weather can be in Minnesota. That’s why I have an indoor AND outdoor location option available. No need to plan for a back-up date.

Do I get digital images with my mini session?

Yes. You will be presented with an online image gallery of 15-20 beautifully retouched images for you to view and select five to keep. This does include a print release. Do you plan on having prints made to give as gifts to friends, family, or even to put on your family holiday card this year? I offer very affordable professional prints and the hassle-free service of doing the ordering, cropping, and/or designing of the card for you if you wish. You’ll get more detailed pricing info on this when you officially book your session.

Do I need an occasion to book? Do I have to have kids to do this type of thing?

NO! Whether you’d like beautiful photos of your children, memoirs of maternity, a new baby, your family, an anniversary, friends, or even a fresh image of yourself, we’re excited to have you be part of the fun!

How do I book?

There is a $150 retainer to hold your spot. The remaining balance is due prior to the start of your shoot. Send us an email to get the process started!

I haven’t shared much of my personal life on my blog (other than via my Instagram account!), and this year I plan to share more of my family. And I decided that summertime fun in Minnesota is simply the best, so I’ll start with that.

We recently went strawberry picking at Lorence’s Berry Farm in Northfield, Minnesota with some extended family. I had never picked my own strawberries before and always wanted to! Plus, you can EAT AS MANY AS YOU WANT. Let me tell you, there is nothing more delicious than sun-warmed strawberries, fresh from the field. They are easy to pick and is a great way to get some much-needed vitamin D on a nice day!

This was Brynlee’s first berry-picking experience as well, which she enjoyed from her stroller, and on the shoulders of Dad. She made sure to dress for the occasion (see photos below) and can’t wait to get in the field and do her own pickin’ next year.

Grandma didn’t want to miss out on any of the fun, either!
