mini-session sunday

mini sessions :: spring 2017

Spring! Glorious spring! And mini-session day couldn't have asked for better weather, although a bit less wind might have been preferable. Six awesome families came out for the minis and we strolled around Provin Trails making conversation and photographs, playfully. 

As you know, I usually only do minis once or twice a year. But this year -- because I KNOW they're in high demand -- I'm going to be doing a bonus round of them in JUNE. See the bottom of this post for more details.

But for now, have a look at the results for the Spring edition!

The bonus round of Summer Mini-Sessions will be happening June 18th. Park location TBD (somewhere in the Grand Rapids or surrounding area). But save the date! And follow me on FB and IG (@brookecollierphoto) to be the first to know when tickets go on sale in a couple of weeks!

I've tried to get away from mini-sessions, but they keep coming back by popular demand. I'd be lying if I said I didn't end up rather enjoying them in the end. ;) 

Here's the results of round one mini-sessions in September! Look at these amazing families! The cute is insane. 

I'm doing one more round of mini-sessions in the middle of October, so stay tuned for those images, also. :)

Before you get to these sweet little highlights from fall mini-sessions, I want to draw your attention a rad give-away I'm running now until October 14th. It's for a short family photojournalism session. Entering requires a fun little creative exercise. You can see more about the give-away HERE. You'll need to click on the box that says "ENTER" and it will take you to the FB post that outlines the steps required to enter. 

Now onto mini-sessions... :)

Families are the best. Spending time following around six of them in a single afternoon is such a fun adventure! Each one has it's own unique culture, it's inside jokes and quirky little ways of connecting. And all of them are so special.

You guys, your family is special. Keep at the work of building your best life together, loving one another well, and playing.

I know mini-sessions are a hot ticket (they sold out SO FAST), and I've had lots of inquiries about whether or not I'll be offering them again this fall. The answer is no; at the earliest I'll offer spring mini-sessions. 

In the meantime, I have limited availability for family photojournalism sessions and have added two variations to that, so head over here to read more about that. And as long as I'm updating you on availability, I have availability to take one birth in each of these months in 2016: february, april, may, june, and july. Smile Sessions are on hold indefinitely.

my fall mini-sessions happened before the colors started changing, while things were still rather green, which i like. 

i did a few sessions in the morning hours this time around, at Wilcox park, which has the best trees ever, and this is just the tiniest peek at what came out of those sessions.

each of these families are repeat client-friends. and as you know if you follow my blog, i LOVE repeat clients. it's so so so fun to see them grow over the years, and my fondness for them is huge. 

in a few days i'll post some images from the six mini-sessions that happened later the same day at another park. :)
