2015 Holiday Mini Sessions | Ashburn Photography

It’s hard to believe it, but I made my first batch of pumpkin muffins this week and Starbucks had their Fall themed cups when I stopped for my latte, so it must mean the most wonderful season of the year is officially here. That’s right – It’s Mini Session Season!  Mini Sessions with Kelly Nelson Photography will be held at Legacy Park in Brambleton on Saturday October 17, from 8-11am and again from 3-5pm, Sunday, October 18 8-10am and Saturday 10/31 9-11am. By then the leaves will hopefully have started turning and the air will feel more like fall and not summer!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is different about a mini session?
The goal of a Mini Session is to get one or two great shots for the holiday card and for holiday gifts. They are quick and painless, and as the name says – Mini!  A mini session is typically only about 20 minutes in length compared to a regular session which is an hour to an hour and a half, and you get 5-8 photos to preview vs the 20-30 from a regular session.
A full session is much more personalized to each family. I spend a lot more time with you and get to capture everyone’s personality in a much more relaxed lifestyle session. There are more playful and candid moments in a full session, and we can do them in any location you choose. A full session is also ideal for larger families who want lots of different posing options, or for families with children who take longer to warm up to strangers or who have more difficulty cooperating. Can’t decide, send me an email and we’ll discuss pros and cons!  I do still have options for Full Sessions available on my Fall schedule!

Can you really get anything good in 20 minutes?
Sure! Take a look at some of my favorite photos from our mini sessions last Fall! I will caveat this by saying that IF your child is someone who typically takes a while to warm up to strangers then a full session is probably more ideal for you, as we only have limited time together.
