Spring Petites

"What do you mean by 'petite', Libby?"
 


I'm glad you asked!

It's a magical session that is shorter than a full session
+
easier on the budget...
 
...but longer than a mini, allowing more time for your family to relax, connect, and share authentic moments.

Q & A

IMG_0319.jpg

How many photos will I have to choose from?

I am what you call an "over-shooter". This means that even though this is shorter than a full session, you will have no shortage of photos to choose from. You will receive a minimum of 40 digital images in color as well as in B&W from which you will be able to choose to download according to the package you purchase.
 
Why are the morning session options so early, and the evening sessions so late?


There's a magical timeframe in which lighting is optimal for photos. It's called "golden hour", and it's the hour after and before sunrise and sunset respectively.  When I send the preparation guide for your session after you book, I will include tips on how to get your family on board and ready for early morning/late evening sessions. It can be done, and trust me when I say...it's worth it!

What if I want to add extended family members, such as grandparents? 

I love photographing extended family. If you'd like to have photos with your extended family members, please book a full session so that I am able to dedicate the amount of time needed. Information on my full sessions can be found HERE.

Are pets allowed?

Yes! Your furry friend(s) are allowed at these petite session locations.
