A mini session is a great way for you to get some updated photos of your family and my sessions include a simple Christmas wreath backdrop or a more subtle hint of festive red as well as the option from a simple white back for some timeless black and white portraits of your family.
The session is 45mins long which will give your child enough time to warm up if necessary and you will get 5 digital images included in the price of £120, any additional images are £20.
Around a week after the session you will be sent a selection of images to choose from.
To book you will need to pay a £50 deposit and the balance of £70 is payable when you have chosen your images.
The terms & conditions for Christmas mini sessions are at the bottom of this page, please read them before booking.
Terms and Conditions
The cost of you session is £120 including 5 digital images. To secure your booking you will be required to pay a £50 deposit which is non-refundable (unless a national/local lockdown comes into force), the balance of your session will be payable once you have selected your images before you are sent the files by digital download.
High resolution files without a watermark will not be released until the final payment is made.
If you are unable to make the session you will lose your £50 deposit. If you are sick and inform Elizabeth May Photography by 9:30am on the day of the session, attempts will be made to reschedule you for a later date, however this is not guaranteed as Christmas mini sessions are limited and restricted.
