Mini-Photo-Session: Mother’s Day / “Mommy & Me”

Mini-Photo-Session: Mother’s Day / “Mommy & Me”

Maureen Sifuentes, Naqiya Designs is hosting a special “Mommy & Me” mini session.

This is a good time for moms to get  those timeless keepsakes with your children.
We tend to be the ones taking the pictures, but Moms NEED to get in front of the camera some times!
Your child(ren) will want to see pictures of you with them as they get older.
Don’t worry about your hair, your weight, your make-up, children don’t see all that, all they see is their pretty mommy that they love. So get in front of that camera!


What is a Mini Photo Session?

Mini Sessions in general are short and sweet. It is a wonderful way to capture a few great moments with children, pets, family, friends or that special someone.  It’s great for those of us who are busy and don’t have a lot of time for a full photo session. They also make for great gifts.

Mini Sessions are held at outdoor locations such as a parks or urban settings. They can be as quick  as 10 minute increments or as long as 30 minutes.  They are intended to capture a “cute phase”, so get a few new photos for Grandma’s birthday, or treat yourself to a much needed updated family portrait.

Mini Sessions are events focused on a particular theme, this one is: TIME WITH MOM

The Fine Print

  • Balance is due the day of the shoot.   No minimum order. Up to five  people per session (sorry no animals allowed at this location. Exact location will be given upon emailing or booking.
  • Will reschedule due to rain (TBD)
  • No refunds due to cancellation (unless extreme emergency)
  • Spots are first come first serve
  • HEADS UP: Since Mini Sessions have such a limited time,  I will do my best  with babies that are not able to sit unassisted for solo pictures.  Mini-Sessions are not  recommended for those looking for multiple backgrounds or changing outfits.  We will have a beautiful backdrop of spring-nature around us however. You may want to schedule a personal newborn session if you are looking for that specifically, or you may book two mini-sessions to accommodate extra people with more poses. I will leave this up to your discretion, but I will try and get as many shots as possible during the 20 minutes. Please call for any questions and concerns, I am always happy to help.
  • Additional prints, canvases, albums and high-resolution digital negatives are available for purchase as add-ons at a discount.

Helpful Hints

Before the photo shoot!
1. Email Maureen at maureen@naqiyadesigns.com (Please list names and ages of everyone taking pictures)

2. Select  2 or 3 times that work for you (we will try and get your first choice)

3. I will send you an invoice via PayPal and upon paying,  you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of the photo service! This is also the contract.

4. Think about what you want to wear (I will email you a Tips and Essentials page) for a great reference.

When you arrive for the shoot!
1. Be on time. The only way mini sessions work is if all parties are on time… This is the only way these can be affordable for us all! If you happen to be late, we will use whatever remaining time left in your time slot.
