Roseville Back to School Mini Sessions, Donna Beck Photography

So it’s that time of year…school picture time!  For me, it’s dreaded.  I am not a fan of the colored backdrops.  And it never rails that they are calling my kid’s classroom right after she played wall ball at recess and now her hair is a mess.  So what is a photographer to do?  Simple, back-to-school sessions!

And I love to make these sessions quick, fun and also a way to capture that special time in your kiddo’s life.  So I always encourage students to bring something they love…a soccer ball, a band instrument, their favorite game…whatever they enjoy and we incorporate them into the session too.

If you are wondering what a mini-session is, it’s a shorter version of a custom session that moves at a fast pace focused on getting the shots that are most important to you.  Because it’s a shorter session it’s typically focused on capturing things like a cute phase, new photos for Grandma’s birthday, back-to-school pictures, or an updated family portrait for holiday cards.

I do offer mini-sessions at least 2 times per year typically focused on Back-to-School Mini Sessions and Holiday Mini Sessions and occasionally offer mini-sessions for Valentines Day and/or Easter too.  If you are interested in more information, you can contact me here.
