What's a photography mini-session? ... well it's sort of (exactly) what it sounds like... sometimes called a "mini-shoot", it's a condensed photoshoot experience and they're usually released on a limited number of pre-selected dates at certain points during the year, and with a selective number of time-slots made available to clients. I offer them as 20-minutes slots. They're a great way to quickly refresh your family photos with high quality images in gorgeous settings.

What's the difference between a normal photoshoot and a mini session?

Mini-sessions tend to be priced below the standard photoshoot package(s) and are much shorter in duration. Quick and punchy - often handy for the busy family - they offer a low risk opportunity for potential new customers to sample my work and to 'test the water', as it were.

If you're worried about whether a photographer can hold the attention of your less attentive little ones for more than a few minutes then this could be the best solution for your family!

Popular mini photoshoot themes

Popular minishoots for Gloucester Photographer, Christopher J, tend to be based around seasonal themes: Cotswold Lavender Photoshoot season is between mid-June to early August, for example. Other popular mini photoshoot themes tend to be around Autumn - with gorgeuous natural golden tones as our backdrop - and also Christmas themed shoots a few weeks before Christmas.

How does a minishoot work?

I'll be set up on location or in the studio for a set period of time and on pre-determined dates. I will offer a limited number of bookings in intervals for that particular setting. These mini-sessions are designed to make the process really simple and enjoyable for you, and are a great way to find a photographer that you can use without a huge initial investment.
