2012 Father’s Day Mini Session Charity Event 1

2012 Father's Day Mini Sessions at Jester Park, Des Moines, Iowa
I am excited to announce Barber Photography’s 2012 Father’s Day Mini-Session Charity Event. Father’s Day is a great time of year to get some photos of “just the kids” as a surprise gift for dad. These are smaller, more compact versions of our normal on-location session. Mini-Sessions are a great option if you are:

  1. Looking to get your Christmas cards all taken care of (get them done early this year!)
  2. Tired of getting Dad a boring tie and need some personal gifts for Father’s Day or other holidays.
  3. Trying custom, on-location photography for the first time.

Mini Sessions are first-come, first-serve.  Please select your desired time below and email us if you’d like to book it.  We will send you a contract within 24 hours and take a $50 deposit to hold your spot.  100% of this non-refundable deposit will be donated to Africa Inland Mission to help our friends Corey and Tiffany Carey raise the money they need to become full-time missionaries in Kenya.

FAQ About Mini Sessions

What is a Mini Session?
A mini session is a shortened version of our regular portrait photography session, without all the bells and whistles. It is great for smaller families or “just the kids”.  It is ideal for families who simply want some updated family photos for their holiday cards, Facebook, or frames.  It is not ideal for those seeking lots of great candids or a wide range of background looks.  With mini session, there simply is not enough time to capture a great deal of emotional images inside of 30 minutes.  You really need our full, on-location session for that.  Mini-sessions move quickly so it is imperative you are a few min. early (5-10 min.) so that you and your family are ready to go.

The location for our Father’s Day Mini-Sessions will be here at Jester Park’s #5 Shelter

Do I get to choose my location for our mini-session?
All mini-sessions take place at Jester Park at Shelter #5. We carefully chose this location because of the variety in settings and flexibility of the location. There are also rest rooms near the shelter.

What is the maximum number of people we can have for a Mini-Session?
You have up to 5 People max (Sorry, no pets during mini sessions but your furry family members are more than welcome for our regular sessions).  If you have 6 or more people in your family, we suggest booking our regular 2 hour photography session so we can accomplish all the different photos typically needed for larger families.

I have a newborn – can they be in the mini-session?
We would love to photograph your baby for a mini-session.  However newborns and babies under 4 months of age are time-intensive to photograph (feedings, diaper changes, etc.).  Because of the speedy nature of mini-session, we will only be able to create group portraits with your baby (family photos or mom with baby and dad with baby).  If you are looking for individual portraits to be taken of your baby, we suggest you contact us about newborn/baby sessions which have their own prices.

How much is a mini-session?
We have THREE options for mini session collections that are all $250 or $300.  Please choose from one of the collections above.  $50 non-refundable deposit will be taken to hold your spot.  You may pay via check or credit card.

How do I book our spot?
All time slots for sessions are first come, first serve.  Please select your time and email us that you would like to book it.  We will send you a contract within 24 hours and take a $50 deposit to hold your spot.  Deposits are non-refundable.

What if it’s bad weather the day of the mini-sessions?
If it’s an overcast day, that’s perfect weather for photos.  No squinty eyes! If it rains, we will still be having the mini-sessions.  We have rented a shelter so there are still lots of possibilities to get some nice photos of your family in not-so-nice weather.  Just go with it! Bring some cute umbrellas and rain boots and we’ll have a fun time with the rain!  If you are unable to come the day of your session, your deposit will not be refunded.

How do I order my photos?
Every family has an hour time slot (half hour for photography and half hour for ordering) and all ordering will be done at the time of the session.  If you ‘like’ us on Facebook, any photos you order will be posted so your online friends can see your photos also.

Do we get any images on a cd?
We do not have cds available for portrait clients but any photos you order from your session will be posted to Facebook so your online friends can still see some of your photos from your session.

What do you mean when you say “edited images from your session”?
That means we narrow down your photos to the best of the best, then we color correct them, punch and pop them, and crop if need be and prepare them for your presentation.  It does not mean we do tummy tucks, chin reductions, arm slandering, wrinkle removing or other major edits.  If you like, we are happy to do this type of editing for you for an additional $35.

Will you provide props for your session or can we bring them?
For mini sessions, we won’t be providing any props however you may bring any items (chairs, tutus, ect.) you may want incorporated in your session.

I have more questions.  How do I reach you?
Just e-mail us here and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have as quickly as possible.
