2019 Fall Mini Sessions – Book Now!

It’s that time of year again to start the process of getting your family photo sessions booked for the fall! And I’m getting an earlier start on them compared to last year *pat on the back*.

I’m excited to announce that….

2019 Fall Mini Sessions are OPEN FOR BOOKING!!! ***EDIT: ALL SPOTS SOLD OUT***

First dibs already went to all of my past clients and they booked over 3/4 of the sessions! My email list was next in line and I opened one more date for them (which immediately sold out). Speaking of my email list, are you on it? Send me an email at Misty@MistyJeaninePhotography.com asking to be added so that you’ll always get early notice of my mini sessions (Spring and Fall) before I open them publicly.


If you’re unfamiliar with me and/or my work, give this a read before booking. I’m a lifestyle photographer, working only with natural light and NO props/backdrops. My main goal during a session is to help you feel comfortable and encourage you to have fun so that I can capture genuine moments between you and your family. I engage with your family a lot during a session, we’re on the move, I’m directing you into good light and using a few tricks that I have up my sleeve to get you all interacting and smiling and feeling the love. But, I also sprinkle in some standard family shots that are more posed with everyone looking at the camera. PLEASE take a quick look through my Instagram feed for lots of examples of my work before booking (www.instagram.com/mistyjeaninephotography).

Now that you’ve read about my style and have checked out my work, are you excited to have me photograph your family? If yes, awesome! You’re my people and you should definitely continue reading over the session details below and then BOOK YOUR SESSION (link below) before they’re all gone.


  • 20-minute photo session (immediate family, excludes newborns)
  • 12 digital, edited, high resolution images of your choice (AND you have the option to purchase more images from your gallery)
  • Print release + private, online gallery where you’ll download your images from (and easily share your gallery with friends/family so they can download, too!)
  • Choose from 4 locations: Crescenta Valley Park, Eaton Canyon, Arlington Garden, Angeles Crest Mts.
  • Turn-around time: Receive your final gallery in about 2 weeks after session
  • Investment: $200-$235 depending on session *see below* (paid in full after booking, non-refundable)
  • Minis are booked back-to-back with 10 minutes in between each. You MUST be on time. You’ll see more “Terms & Conditions” after you select your location in the booking process


Crescenta Valley Park ($200): Dates 9/21, 10/27, 11/2 ***ALL DATES SOLD OUT***
Located in La Crescenta. So far, a secluded spot with few to no other people around (*knock on wood*).

Eaton Canyon ($200): Date 10/4 (Friday) ***SOLD OUT***
Located in Altadena. A very busy hiking trail and location for other family photographers (especially at this time of year), which is why I chose a weekday. Last year I had to shoot around 5 other families who all wanted the same spots as me (not fun), so I’d love to try and avoid that.

Arlington Garden ($225): Date 9/15 ***SOLD OUT***
Located in Pasadena. Price reflects the permit fee I had to obtain to shoot here. This is a popular spot among locals to relax and for other family photographers.


Angeles Crest: ($235): Date 10/19 ***SOLD OUT***
Sample images linked below. Located up the Angeles Crest 2 Fwy, about a 45-min drive from La Canada-Flintridge and up a winding mountain road that may cause motion-sickness. NOT the same spot as last year, but at a campground right up the road. I’ll be reserving camping spots that have a beautiful overlook view of the mountains around us. Since camp spots are first-come, first-serve I can’t guarantee that this vision will come to life but I’m sure gonna try! I hope to reserve 2 camp spots side-by-side, both with campfires going. One campfire will be used for your session should you want some images of your family making s’mores! If that’s not your thing, we’ll just shoot among the trees. The other campfire will be available “off camera” for your family to use if you’d like after your session is over for making s’mores (I’ll have supplies) and even cooking hot dogs (bring your own). You’ve already made the drive up, I figure it would be fun to give you some room to hang out and enjoy the beautiful location a little more before you head home.

Links to images of the campground and HOPEFULLY the same camp spot *fingers crossed*:  IMAGE 1 // IMAGE 2




Please know that booking only secures your date/time until you sign the online contract AND pay for your session in full. Both the contract and invoice will be sent to you shortly after reserving your session and you’ll have 48 hours after receiving them to sign and pay to officially reserve your session, or else it becomes available to other clients again. Sessions are first-come, first-serve.

After your session is officially booked (booked through scheduling system + signed contract + paid in full), I’ll send you my “what to wear” guide, my session prep guide and any location details you need. As always, if you have any questions just shoot me an email at Misty@MistyJeaninePhotography.

Thanks, everyone! I can’t wait to get your family in front of my camera soon.
