Spring Mini Sessions 2019

It doesn’t get more “last minute” than this, friends. I’ve been keeping my eye on a particular location over the last few weeks for some beautiful flower blooms and they’re finally here!. I know from experience (last year) that once these flowers bloom, they don’t last long and because of this I don’t want to take any chances of missing out on them so I’m offering mini sessions over the next few days!

The images below are from a few of my mini sessions held here last year. If you’re interested in booking, be sure to read all the nitty gritty details at the very bottom. These spots are limited, they’re on a first-come-first-serve basis and I want to be sure that anyone who emails me for a session has read through and agrees to all the details. Usually, I’d send each inquiry the details in private via email but because we’re crunched for time I’m just leaving it all here for ya instead.



*15 minute session

*12 images of your choice (in an online, private gallery with print release)

*Immediate family (up to 4 members, $15 per additional person)

*No newborns*

*Pasadena location

*$200 (non-refundable)


My shooting style

I’m a natural light photographer with a lifestyle approach to my sessions. My main goal is to capture real, genuine moments that are true to your family’s personality. To do that, I direct A LOT. I have lots of games and silly tricks that I cycle through to get you and your family comfortable and interacting with each other in a fun way. I do sprinkle in a few “posed” shots, too. When it comes to working with kids, I expect nothing more or less than for them to be KIDS. I actually have a lot to say on how I work with kids and what I expect from parents during a session and I’ll send you those details after booking. My approach is such a relief for parents and is definitely intended to kick any stress to the curb so that you all can enjoy the session and make lovely memories together.


More details

***Much of this is in the contract, but you should know up front before reaching that step in the booking process***

*Each day has 3 spots available with only 5 minutes in between them. This means you CANNOT be late. Please be ready 5 minutes before your session time, so we can use a few minutes to meet and chat before shooting. I suggest arriving to this location 15 minutes before your start time to grab a decent parking spot, touch up make-up/hair and to find me! If you’re late, you’ll get however many minutes are left in your time slot. You may wait until the other sessions are done to make up the minutes you missed. I can’t push back other sessions due to tardiness.

*I’ll send you the exact location in Pasadena and our starting point after you book.

*Your gallery of fully edited images will be delivered within 2 weeks of your session date. You’ll get to pick your favorite 12 images with the option to purchase more digital images. You’ll also have the convenience of ordering prints directly from your gallery, which links to my preferred printing lab. This is optional since you’ll receive a print release to print at any printing lab of your choice.

*I do not release raw or unedited images under any circumstances.

*I do not edit out wrinkles from clothing, stains, stray/out-of-place hair, bra straps nor do I slim down your appearance.

*You must agree (via your contract) to allow me to share images from your session on my website and/or social media. I don’t share your names or any personal information.

The booking process:

  1. Email me at Misty@MistyJeaninePhotography.com with the date and time slot you’re interested in. If you can, mention a 2nd choice in case someone has snagged your first pick before I could update this post. Also, please include the following info: A) Your name + the names of your family members along with ages attached to children. B) If there are specific things you’d like captured about your family, please describe them.  C) If there’s anything you’d like me to know about you, your family or the session to help us make great images together, please explain.
  2. If your requested time/date is available, I’ll send you an online contract to sign plus the invoice for the session to pay IN FULL (non-refundable). You’ll have to sign and pay within a few hours to officially book. If I don’t hear back from you soon and other families are asking for your spot, it will be given to them and you’ll have to choose another spot.
  3. Once your contract is signed and you’ve paid for your session, you’re booked! Soon after, I’ll send you the exact location, my style guide and my session prep info which has more details on how I work with kids.
