It was that time of year again — mini sessions at Kells Natural Photography! The theme was a celebration of springtime, perfectly timed to chase away the winter blues. The Hamilton, Ontario, outdoor park location was particularly well suited, with bright floral gardens, lush tree cover, and playful fountain ponds. As you can see below, several of our participants were quite excited by the flowing water!
Mini sessions are perfect for young children with short attention spans. We work quickly to keep them engaged, starting with a few formal portraits of the entire family, and then encouraging playful interaction between family members. In some cases, little ones wonder off to explore their surroundings. These “in-between” moments often tell the most genuine story, showing the inquisitive nature of youth, and the joy they experience in exploring the natural world.
As a Hamilton family photographer, I also find mini sessions are also ideal for those with particularly busy schedules. With two working parents, one child in baseball camp and the other at ballet practice, it can be difficult to arrange a longer portrait session. Mini sessions work well around your schedule, as you can select the time slot most suitable, often from a choice of two dates.
Mini sessions are frequently announced on our Facebook Page. We have a variety of themes throughout the year, but spaces fill quickly! “Like” us HERE: https://www.facebook.com/KellsNaturalPhotography
