10… or 15 Reasons to Jump on the Mini Session Bandwagon

Mini Session


SpaaRING has SPRUNG and it’s fine to get back in front of the camera! We miss your faces! It’s time to wave good-bye to the bad vibes of 2020 and start 2021 with some fresh beautiful photos. Mini Session dates can be booked here for April 17 & 18, 2021 in Phoenixville!

Some content in this article were originally published in April 2018 on our Uncorked Studios Blog.

Top Ten Fifteen Reasons Why You should rock some (Semi)annual Mini Sessions

1. Time FLIES!

Your family and relationships change just as fast as the seasons do. It may feel like you “just got photos taken”…. but when you do the math, it was actually quite some time ago.

2. Exist in the Present!

How many family photos of your parents have you flipped through, only to ask, “these are awesome, but where is mom?!” Mini Sessions are a perfect way to exist in photos – even if you dislike being in front of the camera OR if you always seem to be the one holding the camera. I’ll give you permission – it is okay to be a repeat offender when it comes to mini sessions and quite common!

3. Kick off 2021 with New Memories

Kids are going to head back to school soon. Activities and in-person work are starting back up. The close-knit time we spent with our “quarantine crew” is slowly coming to an end. Make sure you get a few snapshots to document these times. It may not feel like it now, but I guarantee you’re going to miss the extreme one-on-one time you had with your loved ones (okay, maybe just the new puppy) over the last year(ish).

4. Reconnect

You time. Us time. We time. Honestly, how did you feel after your wedding day portraits, or engagement session, or even the last mini session you did with Jen & Travis? You left that session with a smile on your face and holding the hands of your partner-in-crime or your mini-me(s). Am I right? I am sooooo right. You’re even smiling right now thinking about it.

5. You Just Changed the Color/Cut/Curl of Your Hair. You Got your Hair Done for the First Time Since COVID19.

How much did you spend to have THAT done to your hair? I know that filter on insta is pretty darn cool…. but seriously, let’s show it off with some great pictures.

6. Do it for Mom

Mother always wants a new updated photo of you. Another option… INVITE Mom for a photo session WITH you. Go for a three generation (or if you’re still able, bring four generations together) for an epic mini session. To sum it up bluntly, there are serious bonus points there and these will be true heirloom moments. #DoItForMom

7. Wear it Again

You know…. IT. That Easter dress or that Batman cape or that wedding dress…. you know IT. For instance, if it was important enough to purchase for an event, it probably means you didn’t take enough photos in that outfit.

8. Quick and Painless

It’s all the fun of a full 2 hour session packed into 20 minutes. However, it seemingly goes by so fast it probably feels like 5 minutes.

9. Hang out with Jen & Travis!

This is a solid #9 point. If we haven’t seen you since your wedding, this is a huge reason why we need to get together. When we polled our previous mini sessioners, they said this is the number one reason they sign up! (awww shucks you guys!!! *blush blush*)

10. Create Memories that Last a Lifetime.

 Eh, this one might be a little cliche – but it’s maybe just a little bit true. How many times have you been flipping through your childhood photos and you recall all the stories and laughs you had when a particular photo was taken. The rush of emotion is enough to stop for a moment and recollect a thousand memories.

11. No Cheeseball Backdrops.

Our minis are done on location in the real world – in most cases in trendy historic downtown Phoenixville. This gives us the opportunity to scout some killer whereabouts for your photo session. We use a combination of the “seeker of light” methodology and “bang for your buck” when it comes to choosing locations for our minis.

12. Great Gifts.

Guysssss. Mother’s Day. Christmas. Valentines Day. Anniversaries. Father’s Day. Just Because Day. Feed Them Donuts Day (First Friday in June or November 5… just in case you were wondering). Halloween Day. Guyssssss. Also for any of those holidays you’ll easily spend $100 on flowers alone. However, you don’t need an excuse to book a session, but there were 8 legit holidays I just named where someone would love to have a session booked or receive some absolute adorbs photos of your face. Did you know we could do a complete mini session based around you and a box of donuts?

13. Mark a Milestone.

Minis are the perfect way to mark a milestone. You know, when you have a BIG announcement to make or you’re about to embark on a completely life changing event! #Moving #Babies #SeriouslyDatingSomeone

14. Surprise?

Or you could surprise proposal during the session (just fill us in first, okay?). Just a heads up, if you surprise her with a ring during our mini session, you might want to book a double session, you know, pics while you’re “just dating” and pics while you’re “just engaged.” (or you could surprise the kids with that trip to Disney! This is an awesome way to catch their expressions on camera and be in on the action of all the hugs and joyful screams of delight!)

15. Meet Jen & Travis. 

Photography sessions or wedding day coverage can be a big investment. A mini session is a great way to meet new photographers or test out photographers before booking a longer session or your wedding. In addition, we love love love seeing the same families and couples back at our studio year after year – you guys mean the world to us!


Furry Friends are the perfect perfect perfect reason to book us for your mini session. I leave you with Nismo and his “puppachino.”

Look at all those reasons! In other words, that is just the tip of the iceberg.  Our sessions are 20 Minutes of fun with Jen & Travis from Fox & Brazen in mini form. You. Her. Him. Just your kids. Maybe your dog. Of course your bestie. Bring one, bring ’em all. Bring just the dog.
