Do you offer mini sessions?

Yes! Blue Bicycle offers mini-sessions on select days during peak photo-seasons, typically in the Spring and the Fall.

Mini-sessions are a great choice when you’re after that one perfect photo for your holiday card, graduation announcement, first communion or birthday. Mini-sessions last between 20-30 minutes and include all of the best images from the session, typically about 20-30 images.

While I'm an expert at getting kids excited for photos, easing Mom's stress, getting a grumpy Dad to crack a smile, capturing amazing, natural expressions, beautiful light and that special connection you have with your loved ones, the perfect family photo doesn't happen in an instant! Sometimes people light up right away and rock it from the start, but usually, it takes time for everyone to warm up, get comfortable and settle into a session.

That’s why I don’t put a specific time limit on photo sessions.

Blue Bicycle All-Inclusive Sessions typically last about an hour, more or less. In my experience, that’s usually just the right amount of time to get everyone comfortable being their best selves, while not being too drawn out.

**The exclusive Blue Bike Crabby Kid Guarantee means that we'll get amazing photos that you and your family will love, even when the little ones don't cooperate. During our session, if your kids are cranky, tired, sick, or just not having it, we can choose to stop the session and reschedule at another date. There is no additional charge for a Crabby Kid reschedule, your initial payment will be good until we shoot your session. To use the Crabby Kid Guarantee, we must decide to stop the photo session within a reasonable time of its scheduled ending time. Typically it's obvious from the start that it isn't going to work and we'll decide to cancel quickly. The Crabby Kid Guarantee does not apply after your photo session has been completed.

**The Blue Bike Advantage includes: unlimited phone/text and email consultations anytime before and after your session, forever. Session rescheduling in case of inclement weather and unforeseen extenuating circumstances. Life happens, especially with kids, whether you want it to or not. If the weather turns bad, or who-knows-what suddenly happens we can always reschedule. Your initial payment never expires and is good until we shoot your session.

An initial payment totaling 50% of the total session price is due when you reserve your session. Your initial payment guarantees the availability of your reservation time and is made unavailable to any other potential clients. If you cancel and do not reschedule your reservation for any reason, the initial payment will not be returned but, your initial payment never expires, you can reschedule at any time.
