What is a Mini Session?
Our Fort Lauderdale holiday mini sessions are perfect for families who want an updated photo together with a holiday theme. A session lasts about 30 minutes and we take a variety of photos with your loved ones in our studio, on a expertly decorated, custom set. Within a week, a password-protected gallery with your images will be delivered—plenty of time to order holiday greeting cards, gifts and more! The photos you receive are in high resolution without a watermark and this year you will receive all the photos for no extra fee.
The mini session set will be completely new and not look like last years set. It will still fit up to about 12 people. We will have some holiday themed props, along with food and drinks to make sure it’s a fun time for all! Don’t miss the best Fort Lauderdale holiday mini session of 2022.
We had such a successful mini-session weekend last year, that this year we have expanded it to TWO weekends and the weeknights between. At $199, it’s super affordable because we can do them back to back with many families. At just 30 minutes it’s easy on those humans with short attention spans (usually children and husbands).
Need to Know
What address should I put in my GPS?
5399 NE 14th Avenue
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308
We are in Suite 1 and you’ll see the Donner Photos sign on the door! There is a parking lot right next to our front door.
When and how do I pay?
The session signups will be available until November 11th at 11:59PM at the link above and payment can be made by credit card at the time of sign-up. If you are unable to use a credit card or prefer to arrange another payment method (cash, check, Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, etc) please contact us by phone or email.
Who is taking our photos?
We have two photographers (Nick and Erin) available to take photos for the day. Our supervisor, Brooklyn will also be on site most of the time.
What if I’m late or end up needing to change my session time?
Please plan to arrive at least 5 minutes before your scheduled start time to ensure we can say hello and get started on time. If you are running late or know you need to change your session time in advance, we will do our best to accommodate without pushing anyone else’s start times. If the schedule does not allow, the session fee is non-refundable and we will use whatever time is left in your session to take photos.
What should I bring?
Bring your self and family members, and perhaps a few snacks or fun props you’d like to include.
What if I need to cancel?
Your session fee reserves your time slot during the mini session week and makes it unavailable to other families. Therefore, we cannot refund session fees that have been canceled. If you are able to substitute another family for your time slot, we can always transfer your spot to them. If your reason for cancelation is a sickness in the family, we will do our best to schedule a time for you to get photos together when you are feeling better.
Can you help me with Holiday cards?
Yes! When you come in for your mini-session, we will have some samples for you to take a look at and the option to pre-pay for your holiday cards. For just $439 per 100 cards (sold in increments of 5) we will take your Excel formatted address list and:
1. Design your card with your new photos
2. Address each envelope
3. Affix standard US postage
We can either mail them for you or deliver them to you, for you to write your own personal note on each card, seal, and drop off with USPS.
