I have been wanting to try a day of mini sessions for a while, and this fall I finally bit the bullet and set up my first day of fall family mini sessions. And after setting the date and booking the sessions I panicked about the weather until the morning of the shoots... Luckily we were blessed with a beautiful (dry!) gray Seattle day. They shoots were 20 minutes each and the pace felt a little crazy but it kept things moving. Looking back, it seemed like the right amount of time to get a few good shots and a couple of different poses and backgrounds before the kids started getting antsy.
I think mini sessions are a great time for families to get updated photos without the time and financial commitment of a full photo shoot. I'm looking forward to doing several mini shoot days next year including ones highlighting Seattle's beautiful cherry blossoms and fall foliage.
Norah came to the park to visit me between two sessions and she was thrilled to see her friend Molly. The two of them are so sweet together and it has been so fun to watch their relationship grow. Norah absolutely adores Molly and I think this picture captures their little relationship beautifully. This hug happened right after they saw each other across the park and ran screaming toward one another. What sweeties.
