Brenda Anderson Photography | How do My Sessions Work?

Portrait Sessions

Thank you so much for considering booking a session with me!

I offer m.a.n.y. different sessions. Over the years of growing my business, I have thought about narrowing down to specific sessions, but I just love them all too much, so for now, I am going to keep on keepin' on! I do take on only a limited number every month so I can balance family and work life. I book full sessions 6 months in advance, so if you're wanting to book, please know that dates can fill up quickly pretty far in advance.

Types of Sessions

Full sessions last about 30 minutes (for larger families), but can run longer if needed. They are usually shorter for smaller families, but I do not time these sessions. I photograph until I feel I have captured enough images to produce a lovely gallery. The minimum amount of images you will receive is 35, but you can receive upwards to 120. Mini sessions are small samplings of a regular session. These are booked back to back with other clients, and last 15 minutes max. These are timed. The price varies depending on the type of mini being booked. For these, you get to choose your images. Minis are at a reduced price so they are less time and less images. You can choose to purchase additional images.

Full family sessions are booked throughout the year. These can be either sunrise beach sessions, or sunset outdoor sessions.  I also offer full sessions for Maternity, Engagement, Senior, Children, and In Hospital Newborn (Hello World). Full Newborn sessions last approximately 2 hours and are held in my studio in downtown Tavares.

I only offer family mini sessions a few times per year. One is during the 4th of July week for beach sunrise minis. The other couple are in the fall for Christmas (usually a mowed grass with treeline setting for one and Christmas tree farm for the other). These minis are only on specific dates and last for 15 minutes max.

Studio kids minis are offered approximately every 6-12 weeks. I have different setups for each studio mini. These are on specific dates and last 15 minutes max.

Motherhood minis are held before Mother's Day. These capture a bunch of snuggling of kiddos and their moms. Motherhood minis take place in my studio. I do offer these as full sessions outside of the dates for minis.

I release the links to book mini sessions to newsletter clients first. If there are any available after that, I release the booking link on my Facebook page.

I hope this has been helpful to explain how I run my sessions. After doing this for a few years, I have found that this works smoothly for all. I find that a lot of families L.O.V.E. minis because they can get them every season! Some families prefer full sessions only 1-2 times per year, so I love to have tailored sessions that work for everyone.
