Over the years of doing this, I’ve had many reasons why people come to me for their photo sessions.
And most boil down to they’re celebrating something, they’ve never done one before, they do them annually, or they do them once in a while. I must have the magical touch because once we work together, I tend to see them again every year. What a wonderful treat!
Regardless, sometimes a momma just needs some new photos in their frames, or Grandma is bugging you for an update. Maybe it’s a bit of obligation nagging at you, or dedication to capturing them at each milestone. Regardless….
Not every photo session needs to be a big smörgåsbord, sometimes you just need a little nibble.
Presenting: My “Buzz-By” session. A mini photo shoot, so to speak. Enough time to grab photos in a couple scenes, at a place where I’ll already be with another family, or right here on my charming Bea Hive Farm just off Lake Minnetonka!
I have a lot of flexibility having this beautiful site right at my disposal, even last minute! The look of rolling hills and rural farmland, without the long drive!
Or it it’s another location you crave, you can join us there before or after they’re done. By giving up the option to totally customize something just for your family, you get a great deal without the fuss!
Now…. I have one hesitation with these: You should be comfortable that your kids have the right temperament to hop on into a scene and give good face. Usually arriving a few minutes early to settle does the trick, and I certainly have my ways… I’m an old dog with plenty of tricks. But these quick sessions don’t always give us the flexibility to take our time. My same dedication to full service applies; you can get all the help you want with ordering prints & products, or use an online gallery. But for the times you just need a few shots, this is the perfect option!
- $150, including some PRINTS or full resolution DIGITAL FILES with a print release. Paid at booking to add you to my existing schedule. You pick the date!
- No minimum purchase. Read —– HERE ——- for more details about my MINI sessions, including Buzz-By’s
- All prices subject to MN tax; Please read the fine print below.
The fine print: Not a lot, really. As always, my session fee is non-refundable, but is transferable. If for some reason the original family cancels their session, I’ll still honor your time. However, as always, outdoor sessions are dictated by Mother Nature, and if we cancel for weather reasons, you’ll have to find another session to piggy-back. Most of my on-location sessions are in the west metro, near Lake Minnetonka. My reveal and ordering sessions take place in my studio but an online option is available. Specific print & product pricing can be found on my Prints & Products brochure. Do you have referral credits? Of course they can be used towards these sessions, too.
Please message me at Tracie@TracieBeaPhotographie.com to inquire about open dates.
See you soon!
pppsssssttt! I’m often asked if a mini session is enough time to get good photos? Yes, almost always! Unless you have a child who’s personality takes a while to come through (Boast: I’m REALLY good at helping that!) then yes, it’s enough time for a scene or two. Below is a snapshot of this gallery before final edits. It’s all taken within about a 6 FOOT walk (3 directions, one quick dress change and baby-stripping) and there’s well over 20 images that I would be proud to print and hang in my gallery. This took a few stress-free minutes, and aside from the little one enjoying her diaper being off a BIT too much, lol, it went flawlessly. AND it was FUN! This is not my 1st rodeo folks. You’re in great hands!
