Mini Sessions 2018

September 27, 2018


San Francisco, South Bay, Los Angeles

It’s time for MINI SESSIONS! Mini sessions are portrait sessions that are shorter in time than our regular portraiture offerings. ­­­­These are quick photo sessions that are perfect for individuals, couples, friends, and families (even their furry fam) looking for moments to capture and share with their loved ones.

This year we’ve picked some unique locations scheduled in San Francisco, South Bay, and Los Angeles. We’re also offering special themed sessions this year as well. Email to reserve your spot!

The Details:

$300 for 20 minutes of shooting, and provide approximately 15-20 images in your own private online gallery with printing rights.

Mini Sessions are designed for groups under 6 people. If you are hoping to have us photograph a larger group, please make sure to book additional time to accommodate for a larger group.

During your session we will focus on photographing your group as a whole as well as individual and smaller group candids.

We shoot a mixture of medium format film and digital formats.

There are a very limited number of sessions available. Appointments book quickly and are claimed on a first come, first serve basis!

Connect with me directly at with any questions you may have!



The Fine Print:

Mini session online galleries will be released in approximately one week following the session date. Clients receive printing rights to the images and are free to download and print their images as they please. Any modification of images must be approved by Chiarashine Photography prior to release/posting.

Mini session fees are nonrefundable and are to book and reserve the date and time of your chosen mini session. In the case that your session needs to be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances, such as inclement weather, full session fee will be refunded if a revised date cannot be accommodated. In the event that the client can no longer attend the mini session appointment, they may choose to transfer the session to another person. A refund cannot be offered if client cancels their appointment within 72 hours of the scheduled time. If the client fails to cancel by the 72 hour mark, the session fee could be applied to future sessions at a regular price. Sessions are scheduled back to back with very limited transition time and we will not be able to extend shoot time. Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled time.
