austin holiday mini sessions | ziem photography

how does a mini session differ from a full session?
regular photo sessions run sixty to ninety minutes in length at the location of your choice. mini sessions are conducted at a specific location chosen by the photographer and last 25 minutes.

may I book multiple mini sessions together?
you may book two or more consecutive sessions. in fact, it is recommended but not required that you book multiple sessions if you have a group of five or more.

what is the cost of a mini session and what does it include?
a non-refundable $150 is required to secure your spot. this includes: a consultation {to discuss logistics + wardrobe}, 25 minutes on location, an online gallery with 15-30 images for proofing, sharing and ordering, and three high-resolution images of your choosing + print release.

how do I sign up for a mini session?
