Thanks for stopping by! Currently, ALL MINI-SESSIONS SPOTS FOR 2020 are BOOKED!

Mini sessions Tampa Bay 2020 were just released to past clients and are now open to everyone. These are strange times we are in now, but that shouldn’t mean we skip out on family memories in this most certainly memorable year! Hoping that we are all well and no more non-essential businesses close so these mini sessions for Tampa can go on as planned. But, we all may need to be a bit more flexible this year.

More details

Half of the non-refundable session retainer is due at the time of booking; whether doing a weekday mini, or weekend mini-session date. However, if for any reason, COVID-19 requires non-essential businesses to close, your retainer is fully refundable! If you are sick, or your family falls ill, you will be able to reschedule your session. Please note, you may not get the location originally booked and I cannot guarantee before the holiday delivery but I will do my best. I want to be as flexible as possible, but the discounts of these mini-sessions are possible due to how they are scheduled. Changes to your schedule due to Covid may mean your location will change and dates may be limited. But, health is our priority, so we are willing and able to work with you where possible. The only way to secure your preferred time and location is to book in advance. Your final payment is due two weeks before your scheduled session date and a reminder will be automatically emailed to you. Also, mini-sessions are not recommended for newborns and larger families. One family unit is allowed per time slot as well (no extended families and no families larger than 10 people at this time due to guidance for Covid-19).

Back up dates for weather reschedules for the weekend sessions will be the following day (Sunday) if possible. The weekday reschedules for weather will be Wednesday for Tuesday sessions. Locations cannot be guaranteed if you reschedule for any reason! Also, due to environmental and permit approval, some locations may change after booking. Weekend dates will be rescheduled at our earliest convenience and may fall on a Sunday.

Interested in a special and unique family session this year? I am offering two hybrid film and digital family mini session at Ft Desoto Beach on Sunday, October 4th. These two sessions don’t even have to be at sunset, we can enjoy the warm rich colors of film at the beach, in the fresh air and sunshine before it gets too cold. Plus, the film will take an additional two weeks of processing time, so these sessions are done earlier to allow time to use for holiday cards. You will get a gallery of approximately 15 edited film scanned shots (meaning they are available as digital copies) and ten digital negatives to choose from in your final edited online proofing gallery. Then, pick your favorite fifteen digital negative to download and print up to 11×14 inches on your own. You can make these lifestyle and documentary in nature, with playful beach time, or more relaxed family photos with a few more posed shots, too. $350 total, and the opportunitey to upgrade your full gallery download for $150 more.
