November 14, 2021




  • Kid Portrait Mini Sessions will be held in Crystal Lake, IL. on Sunday, November 14, 2021, between 8-11 am. 

  • Sessions cost $100 for first child, and $50 for each additional child. with a non-refundable $25.00 deposit due at time of booking to secure your spot. Payments can be sent via Venmo or Chase Quickpay at time of booking. The remaining balance will be due at time of session.

  • Sessions will last up to 10 minutes per child.  Children will stand in front of a white backdrop (no props unless needed for age) to get the above look. Children can act silly, serious, or as smiley as they can be...the more personality they show, the more authentic!  Please bring child's favorites to help get that personality to shine (stuffed animals, treats, songs to dance to, shows to watch, etc...) Hopefully with 10 minutes, they can warm up to the idea of being in the "spotlight" (literally) :)

  • Sessions include 5 edited high resolution BLACK & WHITE images which will be sent electronically, including a print release.   (Proofs will be sent in a gallery of 10-12 partially edited image choices (per child) for you to pick your favorite 5 images to be fully edited. Additional images can be purchased for $12.00, or the full gallery for an additional $50/1 child, $75/2 children, $100/3 children...etc). 

  • COVID-19 precautions taken- these will take place in a makeshift studio in my garage (yes....GARAGE!) OUTSIDE.  ( Don't worry, I've already done many rounds of mini sessions with this set up and it works out perfect, I promise!) New backdrop paper is used for each new family.  Of course, hand sanitizer and wipes are readily available! I am fully vaccinated and will be in a mask!

  • Sibling pictures can also be taken and will be included in your gallery of choices. 

  • This is a BLACK & WHITE mini session only.  All proof galleries and final galleries will be in black and white ONLY.  

  • Delivery Time:
    ~1-2 weeks for proof gallery (or sooner)
    ~1-2 weeks for final gallery after final choices submitted (or sooner)
