Denver Photographer Mini Sessions

My Denver & Boulder portrait photography mini sessions offer a condensed version of a full-length photo session. Below are some pros and cons of these types of sessions to help you decide if a mini session is right for you:


  1. Cost-Effective:
    • Mini sessions are more affordable than full sessions, making professional photography accessible without the cost of a full session.
  2. Time-Saving:
    • Mini sessions are shorter than full length sessions (45 minutes), making them convenient for busy schedules and clients who dread the idea of being photographed for 1-2 hours.
  3. Attractive for seasonal themes and occasions:
    • Mini sessions can be themed around holidays or back-to-school. Note: I only offer mini sessions January through August.
  4. Get to know your photographer:
    • Mini sessions offer you the chance to work with me and get a feel for my style. If you like the experience and end product, you can sign up for a full length photo shoot in the future.


  1. Limited Time:Denver photographer, mini sessions family
    • Less time means fewer photos and potentially less variety in poses and expressions.
    • There’s also less time to establish rapport with your photographer, which may affect the comfort level you feel when working with me.
  2. Reduced Location Availability:
    • I only offer mini sessions for clients in Denver proper or Boulder to limit my travel time.
  3. Limited number of images included:
    • My mini session package includes four high resolution digital files. Alternately, a full session includes all of the images. That said, if you love your session and want to buy the entire package of photos, it’s an additional $300 to do so. Of course, that’s a decision you can make after you’ve seen your photos

Mini sessions may be most apt for headshots or a lean and mean family photo session. While you can technically book a mini session for other types of portraits, I find that the limitation on time is not ideal.

Ultimately, portrait photography mini sessions are a great way to be photographed by a professional photographer and come away from the shoot with a small set of images. But less location variety and customization plus significantly less time compared to a full session are among the tradeoffs the client should consider.

BTW: I call my mini sessions The Simple.

So. what’s The Simple (aka a mini session) cost and include?

~ 45 min session (Denver/Boulder metro area only).
~ Includes 4 high resolution digital files.
~ Online viewing and ordering via Pixieset gallery.
~ Great for headshots or minimalist family photo shoots.
