Q: Why do you offer 2 packages and which one is right for me?

A: The 20 minute package with 5 images is perfect if your looking to do if you are nervous about having your photo  taken, updating a couples session, getting some headshot, or looking for maternity photos. I recommend the 45 minute session if you have small children who need some time to warm up to the idea of being photographed, have a larger group or just want to have more photos from your session.

Q: What will the mini-session scene be this year?

A: There will be no scene or prop set up this year! We will provide a blanket for seating on grass, but nothing else will be provided from Shannon Photography. We want to keep things simple this year and capture the joy of families without the fuss of setting up props and such! If you’d like to bring any of your own props, please feel free!

Q: How many images will we receive?

A: Within 2 weeks after your Mini-Session, you will receive an invitation to view an online proofing gallery This proofing gallery will allow you to see ALL of your images from your Mini-Session with Shannon Bunton Photography. We average 45 returned images per mini-session. You’ll be able to choose 5-15 images from your proofing gallery and download those images in high resolution, depending on the package you selected. If you love more than 20, you’ll be able to purchase additional image downloads via the online gallery.

Q: How long will Mini-Sessions be?

A: Mini-Sessions are 20 minutes or 45 minutes. We will use the full time booked to photograph your session. Mini-sessions will not exceed your time slot.

Q: How many people can be included in a Mini-Session?

A: Mini-Sessions can include any number of people. However, it is recommended that larger groups (6 or more) purchase the 45 minute option to ensure enough portrait time for everyone. The person making the reservation will be the only one who will have access to the online gallery.

Q: What about dogs?

A: Dogs are definitely welcome! Just be sure to bring a leash, some treats, and a squeaky toy to keep your pet’s attention.

Q: Can we change outfits?

A: Given the shortened timeframe of the mini-session, there will not be time for outfit changes.

Q: What if we’re running late to our Mini-Session?

A: Unfortunately, this happens and I completely understand. I request that you plan on arriving to your Mini-Session at least 10 minutes BEFORE your scheduled mini-session time. If you are more than 10 minutes late to your scheduled session, your session time will be voided and your mini-session will have to be rescheduled and credited towards a full session. Your session coverage will begin at your scheduled session time… so the longer you’re late, the shorter amount of time you have in front of the camera. I really hate to be that way… but it happened a lot last year & held up other families who were on time! There will be NO refunds for missed or late mini-sessions.

Q: What will happen to our Mini-Session if it rains?

A: Unfortately, the weather is out of our control and something we risk being an outdoor location. If it rains on your Mini-Session day, those sessions will be rescheduled to my next available date, I will notify you by email. That is the ONLY make-up day for inclement weather ONLY, so if you’re unable to attend the makeup day, then your session will be credited towards the purchase of a full session at a later date. There will be NO refunds for any Mini-Session purchase.

Q: How do we sign up for a Mini-Session?

A: Mini-Session registration is open. Use the contact form below to apply for a session, I will send your booking package within 24hrs. These sessions are on a first come, first serve basis….so book early! Sessions will fill up FAST! Your session is only booked when contract and payment have been received. We will contact you with your time slot.

Q: How much are Mini-Sessions? How do we pay?

A: The cost for an Shannon Bunton Mini-Session starts at $145! HST will apply. Payment will be required at time of registering for Mini-Session. Payment will be made via the invoice in your booking package. All sales are final and payment is non-refundable. No payment will be returned to buyer for any reason.
