What is a mini photo shoot?

Glad you asked. As the name implies, it is a portrait session, just, well, mini 🙂 Usually around 20 minutes long often with a seasonal theme, and less expensive than bespoke family shoots. They are fun way to update your photographs, and can be a great idea for making cards and gifts for Christmas and other special occasions

How many photos to you get in a mini photo shoot?

Mini photo shoots are so called beacause they are short, there is no limit to how many photos are taken. I will usually edit photos down to around 20 images, but this depends on the session. These photos are put in to a gallery for you to choose your final selection.

How much are mini photo sessions?

This depends on whether the mini shoot includes prints or digital images. My mini sessions can start from as little as £35 and usually include at least one print.

What is the best time of year to look for minis?

Other than the obvious and very popular Christmas mini sessions, Deborah Johnson Photography offers mini shoots for Valentines, Mother’s and Father’s Day, but there is no limit - it’s worth signing up to my newsletter or following me on Social media if you want to be the first to find out!

How many people are mini sessions for?

Again - this depends on the session. Christmas sessions are aimed at children from one family group - but as long as the family isn’t too big - mums and dads can always jump in for a couple of shots too!

*Please do not arrive late as sessions cannot over run, time for cleaning is needed in between each client. Refunds will not be offered for late arrivals.

Usual studio Covid and hygiene procedures apply: Maximum group of four from the same household; Face masks must be worn by adults unless having their picture taken;  hand sanitiser must be applied upon entering;  shoes to be left at the door;  windows and doors will be kept open whenever possible and touch points at the studio will be sanatised in between each client. If I become unwell you will be contacted to reschedule the shoot. If you or your family become unwell, you will be offered credit to use at the studio when you are feeling better. As with all my shoots, I am taking all possible precautions to keep myself and clients safe. If you book a session you do so under these terms, and at your own risk.  If you are not comfortable with these measures, then I advise you not to book.



Several times a year I send out specials and updates from the studio. If you want to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the special offers click here to sign up!
