ONLY OFFERED ON SPECIFIC DATES AND LOCATIONS
$500 SESSION FEE
30 MINUTE SESSION – INCLUDES 5 PERFECTED DIGITAL IMAGES

A few times each year, I schedule a day for Destination Family Mini Sessions at special locations. This gives you an opportunity to get 5 amazing images of your family in a beautiful location without committing the time and expense required for a full custom family session and collection. Family Mini Sessions are offered in Grand Rapids in June, Northern Michigan and Mackinaw Island in July, during peak fall foliage colors in Grand Rapids and Holland and over Thanksgiving Weekend to catch busy families when they are home to celebrate together. Families secure an available 30-minute session by paying online in advance. Because these sessions are in very short supply and often are coordinated with your family vacation itineraries,  sessions are not refundable.

We'll take lots of photos during your 30 minute session, and then I'll select and edit 5 amazing images and deliver these to you digitally in full print resolution as well as web resolution for sharing on social media. And to get that perfect family image for your wall or Christmas cards, I'll seamlessly combine photos as needed for ideal group shots.

NORTHERN MICHIGAN — PETOSKEY, HARBOR SPRINGS & MACKINAW ISLAND

I’ve set aside 4 days this summer on my swing through Northern Michigan— one each in Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Mackinaw Island. Each location offers colorful resort town storefronts, wonderful floral settings and beautiful waterfronts. If you're traveling in the area over the week of the 4th of July, this would be a great time to capture some amazing family portraits for your mantel or Christmas cards. And since vacation itineraries are tight, we'll only need 30 minutes for your session. Fun and done!

Back to School/College — Grand Rapids Michigan

Families with college age kids still want great portraits of the full family— but with summer jobs, travel and school schedules, it can be hard to get everybody together for a full photo session. These end of summer minis are perfect for families who want to get that perfect family photo before the kids leave for college in the fall.
