What are "mini sessions"?

A mini session is a portrait session that typically lasts about 20 minutes and is a lower investment than the classic portrait session. These sessions take place at specific time slots at a pre-determined location after which you will be able to select your favourite images from a gallery of edited images.

It’s the perfect way for new clients to get a taste of my film photography style before booking a full session or for a returning client to get a portrait 'refresh' for those who'd love to just have one or two extra prints for the wall to record littles one who grow so fast or for a small milestone in their lives.  It can even be a way for those with busy schedules to squeeze in time for some quality photos.

When and where are your next mini sessions?

I will be in the UK taking general portrait bookings between 29th July and 6th August. Mini sessions will be held at the following dates and locations;

  • London, Hampstead Heath, 30th July from 10am
  • Oxfordshire, Abbey Gardens, Abingdon, 4th August from 10am
  • Bristol, Clifton Downs Park, 5th August from 10am

How flexible are these sessions? How many people can there be? Can we add locations?
Mini-sessions are ideally for 4 persons maximum. There is a short amount of time to work with therefore it's best to keep the subject count to a minimum. If you want to include more friends, grandparents or other loved ones, or would like to use a specific location or need a longer shooting time I recommend booking one of my classic portrait sessions.

When will our gallery be available?
I will be shooting with analogue film so it takes a little longer than usual as I wait for the film to be developed and scanned to digital image by the lab. I aim to get galleries sent within 3 weeks but on some occasions it will take a little longer. Clients will receive digital images from film scans. 

How much do mini sessions cost?

Sessions are £195 and include;

20 minute session with Chen | Analogue film | Client gallery | One digital image included

Extra digital images can be purchased @ £33 per image. Package deals are available if you would like to purchase all the digital images in the gallery.
