Sessions are for one child only. If you’re dead set on more than one child in the shot, please note each child will need to be paid for separately and we will need to book an extended session.
Session cards purchased are valid for two years. That means if you miss a month, it’s no big deal. In fact, you can miss every second month and it’s still OK. Once two years have passed, you’ll lose any sessions you haven’t come in for though, so do keep that in mind.
If you don’t want to do it anymore, you can give your card to a friend. Just let me know that you’ve transferred those sessions, and I’ll adjust my bookwork. That way I’ll know it hasn’t been stolen.
I can’t promise I’m going to be doing this forever, or that the deal will stay the same for all of eternity. Life can be strange, and things sometimes change, I’m sure we’re all on the same page there. Don’t worry though, you won’t be left high and dry. If for some reason Tiny Mini sessions cease to exist, we’ll make sure you have something nice for your remaining credit (or your unused credit back).
Tiny Mini sessions will be done primarily by Emily, or if Jess can’t help herself she’ll do it too. Either way, you’re in good hands.
Tiny Mini sessions are not for newborns. Tiny babies need more than a Tiny Mini session. Tiny babies are a lot of work. Bring them in for a Full Portrait session if you want them photographed when they’re just brand new. Once they’re over a month old, we can start them up on the Tiny Minis.
If your child is sick pretty please (with cherries on top) don’t bring him in. Do you want a photo of a sick child on your wall? No. Do we want to get sick and potentially pass it on to someone else’s baby? Also, no. We’ll rebook you for another Tiny Mini.
We will choose the best image from the Tiny Mini and email it to you within a few days of the session. Of course we can’t promise a smiley happy photo, any more than you can promise your child will be her normal smiley self. But we’ll do our best!
We really don’t want to Photoshop your little person. This is not because we’re lazy, but because we want to present you with a true representation of your baby, not some plastic doll. Of course we can polish away an untimely bruise, for example, if absolutely necessary. But as a general rule we won’t be changing things. With this in mind, you may want to make sure you clean his little face before he comes in!
The copyright of any images produced remains with Jessica Jones Photography Ltd. This means that we still officially own the rights to the images. However, you are welcome to print, share and reproduce any image in your collection for your own enjoyment and that of friends and family.
We may really love to share your images online on our blog or on social media etc. However we know that some people would rather we didn’t, so if you’re one of those people, there is an option to tell us this on the registration form. That way there’s no confusion and you can then be sure your images will remain private.
If you would like your Tiny Mini image as a print or canvas, you have the option to order that. Let me know and I’ll email you the prices. Please note, after a few months your images go into the deep recesses of our back up system, if you want them pulled up again there will be a $75 fee to retrieve them from the archives.
Payment is due when you book your casual Tiny Mini Session. We’ll send you our bank account details for that. Just make sure you put your name with your payment so we know who it’s from.
If you have one of our session cards it’s still important to book your spot on our Tiny Mini day, as having the card doesn’t automatically promise you a session if the day fills up. If dates book up quickly we may look at adding more session dates, but to start with it will be first come first served.
