I encourage clients to pre-purchase the number of images they think they'll want to insure that I am able to provide a quick turnaround to all my clients, and to save my sanity during this crazy-busy photography season! :-) If I am having to field too much communication and lingering decisions on image choices from clients while trying to edit and deliver images for everyone, it just slows down the process too much. That's why I've set things up so that all client decisions are made up-front, and then I can just focus on shooting each session and image delivery without excess variables.
In late December or early January, if you find you are wanting to do more with your images beyond holiday cards & gifts, you (and every client) will have an opportunity to see all of your images beyond the initial selection presented for holiday orders, and make a post-holiday order. I will offer some special pricing then, as well, on adding images to your collection, ordering framed pieces for your walls at home, and other fun ideas that we just don't have the time to offer during holiday rush. In order to serve every client that wants holiday images delivered by Dec. 20th, we keep the image selection minimal to under 20 images, so that it's quick and easy for everyone! Then, in January, we can visit additional options together when my time is more open again!
Pets can take up a huge amount of the time and energy of your session. For this reason, due to the limited nature of mini-sessions, we recommend that you schedule a 45 minute session to accommodate.
