Sunflower Mini Sessions

What to Expect & Session tips: 

Thank you so much for booking a Sunflower Field Mini Session with us! The sunflower field is so beautiful. There are several acres of sunflowers and they are an amazing sight! 

With us you can expect a fun and relaxed mini-session.  Your session will be 15 minutes and we will get as many shots as we can. We will start off with posed portraits of the family as a group, each child, etc. We will also work in a few candids as well. You can expect to have about 30+ images to choose from. Your package includes a choice of 7 images from your preview gallery. You will have the option to purchase additional images at $25 each. 

If you need ideas on what to wear or how to plan group outfits, I have some great ideas on our Pinterest page.  Please feel free to take a look and follow us too! Things to stay away from are neons, clothing with cartoon characters on them and everyone in all white shirts. Some white is totally ok to mix in but it tends to be very reflective of the grass and trees if everyone has it on and can cast a green or yellow hue over your photos. Feel free to send me a message or email if you need help or ideas on outfits. I am more than happy to assist you in picking out your outfits. 

These sessions are $175. A $100 retainer fee is to be paid within 48 hours of booking your session and the remaining $75 is due day of your session. There is a link to pay your retainer fee by PayPal at the bottom of this email but if you prefer to pay by Venmo, you can send your $100 payment to: @kristina-Stotler - last four digits of my phone number are 8838.  Remaining balances can be paid by cash, Venmo or PayPal. 

HELPFUL TIPS: 

1. If anyone in your group is showing signs up illness prior to your session, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can do our best to cancel, reschedule, etc. If anyone arrives to your session showing signs of illness, your session will be canceled and retainer fee will be forfeited. The safety of our clients, our family and ourselves is our highest priority. We are fully vaccinated but not everyone in our home is at this time. Thank you for your understanding. 

2. I recommend applying bug spray to your group when you arrive to the field but this is of course totally optional. 

3. Sometimes a short walk is necessary to get to the spot we are shooting at. It might be muddy, soft ground, etc and if anyone is wearing heels or white shoes, a different pair of shoes to wear on the way to the spot might be a good idea. 

THE PROCESS: 

I will send out a confirmation/reminder email a few days before your session. Please be sure to respond that you will or will not be able to attend. The day of the session, we will scope out the best spot for photos and I will email you info on how to find us. We try to make it very easy to locate us but sometimes a short walk is required. If you bring strollers, coats, etc, we will be sure to keep them close to us during your session. 

 

You will have a 15 minute session with my husband Greg who is the photographer and myself. I am there for helping with lighting, posing, entertainment, etc. 

 

Within 1 or 2 days of your session, I will post one Sneak Peek image. You can share this image, tag people, etc.  If you do not want anything posted on social media, that is totally fine. It is optional. 

 

About 5-7  days after your session, you will receive a gallery of proof images. I will add a few edited images in your gallery so that you can get an idea of what a final product will look like but for the most part, the images will be unedited. 

 

More information regarding these galleries will be sent out with your gallery. A total of five  edited and retouched, high resolution digital picture files are included with this mini session package. 

Additional edited images can be purchased for $25 each. Only the images that you choose are available for you to keep. 

 

Once you make your selections, I will then edit them and send you back a finalized galley within 2-3 weeks. I try to aim for 2 weeks because I know how excited our clients get but sometimes I need that extra week. 

You will also receive a personal photo print release so that you can have prints made or you can also purchase prints from us. We use high quality, professional photo labs only available to professional photographers. I will provide you with a promo code to use so that you get a discount on any prints you order from us. 

Below, you will find a link to your contract and a link to pay your $100 retainer fee. I will send out a questionnaire a few days before your session to help us prepare for your session.

Anything else you need, please let me know! 

We look forward to seeing you!
