Fall Mini Sessions at Clackamette River Park, Oregon City, Oregon.

We are super excited to be announcing our Fall Mini Sessions, Sunday, October 20th. (if we sell out then additional days will be added) These will be 20 minute sessions at Clackamette River Park. This is a great time to get those magical fall family photos. We understand how important family photos are, and want to provide the best experience possible for your mini session.

Tips for booking:

• Remember that 20 minutes goes really fast.

• These sessions are intended for groups of 5 or less. If you have a larger family, book 2 sessions back to back to ensure you have a fun, relaxing time, and get photos of everyone.

• If you have young children, book around their sleep schedule. It’s generally best to book shortly after nap time.

• Fall in Oregon is unpredictable. We’ve chosen a date that we believe will provide us with beautiful fall colors and nice weather. But we are only human, of course, and it might just turn into a fun outdoor session.


Tips for making the most of your mini session:

• Stop and use the restroom before arriving (The park has a McDonald's nearby that’s perfect for this.)

• Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled session.

• For younger children (under 6) bring a back up pair of clothing or change them when you arrive at the park.

• If you want to include your pet in the session, bring pet waste bags and treats.

• Kids also love treats so make sure you have a reward, especially if it can be hard for them to sit still.

• We will have a blanket to sit on if that is something you choose, but if you want something that fits your outfits, we recommend you bring your own blanket.

• Have fun!

The cost for a 20 minute session is $175. You will receive 15 edited images, delivered via on-line gallery. The full amount is due at booking, and images will be delivered 3-5 days after your session. This event is rain or shine. We will have umbrellas available if necessary, but it’s always a good idea to bring your own if the weather is looking iffy.

We strive to give you a wonderful experience and capture beautiful photos your family can treasure.
