Kansas City Area Fall Mini Sessions 2024

This Year – instead of paying a $99 fee to book and then purchasing a package, you’ll just buy that smallest package up front and will have the option to upgrade it at your ordering appointment! This saves you about $100 from what you spent last fall on mini sessions.


Saturday, October 12th – morning

Saturday, November 9th – afternoon

Both dates will be nature settings, most likely on the southern side of the metro (OP, Leawood, Olathe, South KC, Grandview, western Lee’s Summit, etc). Official location is not set until closer to the session day, in order to find the best spot for fall color!

See available times and book below!


  • How many people may I bring to this session? Can I bring my 3rd cousin, once removed? Mini sessions are best when used for your immediate family! If you have other family members you’d like a few pictures with, please consult with Helen before booking; the solution may be for you to book back to back sessions, but we like to take this on a case by case basis.
  • What’s included with the booking fee? Your session time and 3 digital files of your choice at the ordering appointment, plus I’ll throw in small, matted print copies of each ordered image. Upgrades/extra images will be available for purchase.
  • Can I bring my new baby? What about a cake for my one year old? Definitely “no” to the cake, and the new baby is a “sort of”. I won’t pose your new baby on their own, especially given that we’ll be outside, but am happy to capture family and sibling photos of all of you!
  • How long is the session? I have you in and out in 20 minutes max! Maybe that’s why dads are often on board with a mini….
  • Will we have time for individual photos? Absolutely! Whether those individuals are for each child, a few maternity portraits, or simply because you need an updated headshot, we’ll have time for those individual poses plus group poses.
  • How soon are the pictures ready? We’ll be ready for your ordering appointment the week after your session, and once you’ve chosen and purchased your favorites, the turn around time ranges from 1 week to 4 weeks, depending on what you purchased (shorter time for just digitals, longer time if you wanted wall art).
  • My kids’ sports schedules aren’t out yet for the fall, what if they have a game on our session day? This is a super common situation, and as a sports parent myself I totally empathize! Many times over the years, parents have gotten lucky and the date and time picked doesn’t collide with games scheduled the same day. In the situations where a sports schedule comes out and we discover a conflict, I have always been able to move that family to an earlier or later time, or even a swap with someone on the other mini session date. Don’t stress – I’ll take care of you!
