Outdoor Mini Sessions
Most of our mini sessions are held outdoors. We use the outdoor ambiance to capture a fresh natural feel to your posed portraits of you and our loved ones against different backgrounds at a set location.
Studio Mini Sessions
Once in a blue moon, we'll setup a date for a themed session indoors at our studio. These sessions include specific props and a backdrop to capture a theme.
Our goal during your mini session is to capture the moments as they unfold. We can finesse your expression, pose, and camera connection - but our main goal during our short time together is to capture the essence of your personality.
Our mini sessions are held a couple times of year. They are short "quickie" photography sessions designed to capture a handful of memories of that moment and time. Typically these sessions happen once in the spring and once in the autumn and our clients usually sign up for both dates.
What are mini sessions? Great question!
Fox & Brazen Mini sessions are very short photo sessions held on a specific date at a specific location. Our minis range from 20 to 60 minutes and result in an online gallery for participants to select a small number of included digital files and purchase heirloom products.
A couple weeks post session, you'll select your final digital photos and heirloom products from the lightly retouched images in the online gallery. Once selected, we'll do a final retouch on the images and send the link for a digital download.
It's mini session day! Enjoy your time with FaB! Most mini sessions are a quick 20, 40, or 60 minutes. We'll take care of posing you and coaching your expression - your job is to gather the ones you love for a photo session together!

Is 20 minutes enough time to get some great moments of your loved ones? Yes, yes, yes! We usually can get everything we need (as long as everyone is cooperating) in the first 10 minutes, which leaves us 10 additional minutes of time to mix it up and get some other great moments captured - this includes more candid moments, other group combinations, or different backgrounds. Our 40 and 60 minute session upgrades are perfect for those who like a more laid back pace or if you're bring a gaggle of people/pets with you to be photographed. The more time we spend together, the more variety of photos we will create together.
Twenty minutes of photography goes awfully quick! We'll pose you and your loved ones in different combinations on a handful of backdrops. During our mini sessions, we strive for a balance of posed group photos as well as a few natural moments that truly capture your personality. We'll give you a handful of actions or prompts and we will then capture the moments as they unfold. We can finesse your expression, pose, and camera connection - but our main goal during our short time together is to capture the essence of your personality.
What does Ferris Bueller say? “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” This resonates SO hard with us! Mini sessions are perfect for capturing everything in between life moving too fast - you'd be surprised at what you can miss capturing when you don't have a photo session on the schedule.
Fox & Brazen mini sessions start at 20 minutes (they can be upgraded to 40 and 60 minute blocks as well). You'll arrive to our set location ready to rock and roll - dressed to the nines and ready to have some laughs and fun!

Fox & Brazen does not limit the number of participants at your session. Just keep in mind, the more people/pets you bring, the less camera time each individual will get and the less groupings and setups we'll be able to fit in.
Our 20 minute mini session is perfect for a family of four (or less) people/animals that are good listeners. If you have young kiddos or a doggo that has a hard time focusing, you may want to consider a double or triple session or booking two sessions spaced out during the day with a break between.
Double or triple sessions are perfect if you'd like to bring multiple generations, another couple, incorporate an outfit change, or have something special in mind to feature during your session.
Short Answer: Yes.
Long Answer: Yes. Professional hair and makeup will enhance your best features as well as give you more confidence in front of the camera. A great makeup artist will analyze your face to create a look that is fresh, polished, and flattering - this will help downplay any blemishes or discoloration and bring out the twinkle in your eyes. One of the best parts of a professional makeup artist is they have knowledge in prepping your face for the the lighting we use to create a professional portrait.
The biggest differences between mini sessions and full length sessions are the amount the session can be customized, the total experience, and the length of photography.
Our mini sessions range in length from 20-60 minutes and have a specific date and location that cannot be changed by individual clients. We have a set number of digital files included in our mini session time blocks. During our time together, we often have a "pre-set" shot list in our head that we repeat for each client attending the mini sessions. If there is time left at your mini session, we'll do something a little more "out of the box," but our mini sessions fly by pretty quickly (especially with little ones!) and we find our shot list is pretty perfect for the allotted time. We also strongly discourage props or outfit changes during our mini sessions since they have a tendency to "eat up" most of our photography time together. Mini Sessions are perfect for a quick annual update for photos. Mini session dates are usually limited to one date in the spring and one in the fall - sometimes we'll throw in a special themed mini session event sometime during the year as well.
Our full sessions can be completely customizable from the length, to the location, to the number of heirloom products or digitals, to the pampering services included in your collection. We look specifically at each participant in the full session and customize the experience completely. Our full sessions give plenty of time for outfit changes, props, and bringing your own ideas to how you'd like to spend our time together. Our full portrait sessions include a planning session to incorporate all the brainstorming and ideas we can create together so we have the perfect plan on photo session day. Lastly, your full session portrait gallery will have a wider variety of images to choose from. Full sessions are available to schedule anytime throughout the year. Do you think this sounds more your speed? Drop us an email for more information!
Once we get closer to mini session day, we'll email you a few more recommendations for selecting the perfect wardrobe.
Dress from head to toe (so yes, bring THOSE shoes and skip the ratty tennis sneakers)
Choose options that flatter - clothing should be fitted for your body type and not be too lose or too tight
Ensure that clothing is clean and pressed - wrinkles and stains will not be photoshopped
Ultimately we suggest you dress to represent your personality, the season, and personal style
Groups should match with similar color tones, but should not try to match their outfits in every way
Match. Don’t Match. Formal. Informal. Wedding Gown. Plaid. Shorts. Birthday Suit. We’re not picky.
You will most likely be photographed from HEAD to TOE to the TIPS OF YOUR FINGERS - so every bit of your outfit(s) and appearance is important. Our clients may be standing, moving, and sitting throughout the session, it is important to take into consideration everything you are wearing. Most of our mini sessions are held outside - so please dress for the season (for example... if it's cold - consider wearing a jacket or warm sweater).
Here are some general tips and tricks for selecting your wardrobe:
Our mini sessions are held on specific dates throughout the year. If the select date does not work with your schedule, we encourage you to look forward to the next season or check back for new availability.
Our full portrait sessions are also available to book any time throughout the year and are completely customizable.
When you sign up for your mini session we do have a backup date scheduled *just in case* rain may be an issue. We usually make the final rain date call about 24-48 hours prior to the sessions. If for some reason you cannot make the rain date and you notify us with more than 24 hours notice you can use the credit towards a future mini session or apply it towards a full portrait session.
YES!!! We LOVE a party during your session! Side note... #AuntLifeIsTheBESTLife
If you're bringing a gaggle of friends or family to your session, I STRONGLY encourage booking at least a double session! For each "type" of group, I'd do a separate time block - so, for example, if you're bringing your family, plus both sets of Grandparents - I'd recommend a triple session. This will allow us the proper amount of time to incorporate a bunch of different fun combinations.
Some unique session ideas:
Aunt & Uncle
Boyfriend / Girlfriend
We never say no to having you bring your doggo to be in front of our camera. Sometimes we choose locations were pets are not allowed (like Longwood Gardens) - so make sure you read the fine print before you book!
If you'd like to incorporate props into your mini session, we encourage you to email us prior to the date to discuss. Some props are more complicated than others and we want to make sure we can incorporate it into what we have planned for our time together (20 minutes goes awfully fast!). Sometimes we choose locations (like Longwood Gardens) that do not allow props (like signs or balloons) - so it's always good to check with us first!
I had someone ask if they could bring their goat - if you have a pet goat, run a goat yoga class, make goat cheese, or own a goat farm than sure - that sounds like a super fun addition to your session (but only if they're house broken or you're prepped to clean up after your four-legged friend)!

No, and please be honest with us because your decision to attend under questionable health may effect the experience for others if our photography staff gets sick and we need to postpone future sessions. We're happy to accommodate a reschedule for another date in 2021 if it means keeping everyone safe and healthy. Our staff photographs many milestone events and will become unavailable if our staff needs to self quarantine - please don't put someone's "once-in-a-lifetime" event in jeopardy.
There is no product purchase requirement beyond your initial fee.
Post session, you may always add additional digitals or products. We do offer an amazing line of wall art which is a perfect way to showcase a fantastic moment from your session. After your initial experience investment, our wall art starts at $1.25 per square inch and our albums begin at $750. Some individuals spend $500 highlighting their portrait session in physical products, others spend $5,000, but the important thing to note is these heirloom products are made to last beyond your lifetime (for those future generations!) with their amazing craftsmanship and handmade beauty imported from Italy.
Mini Session days move FAST! We've allotted a set amount of time for your time block and the next session is scheduled to start ten minutes after your session finishes. We recommend to arrive to our location 10-20 minutes early to make sure everyone is ready (and on time) for their session. Due to the tight schedule of all the sessions, if participants are late, we cannot extend their photo time. If you happen to be late, we will capture as much as we can within your allotted time.
Good golly gosh no! Mini sessions are great for anyone who wants to document this moment in time! Mini sessions are usually pretty quick, so they are perfect to get a few updates portraits as well as get your holiday cards in order.
Some other session ideas include Class of 2021 / Seniors, couples (married, dating, or status: complicated), children, pets, weight loss journey, milestone announcements, wear-it-again Halloween costume, one year anniversary photos, best friends session, and more!
We kindly ask that you help keep each other healthy. If you need to reschedule your reservation due to any health concerns, our policy for the 2021 season is quite flexible and we're happy to accommodate a future date for your session.
