The year 2020 is and has been an absolute whirlwind. Our life was stopped in more ways and became isolated like never before. If this year has taught me anything, it’s how important it is to capture special memories while we can and how important our family and friends are!
Mini sessions are the perfect way to update your family photos or to give meaningful gifts (like a beautiful framed photograph) to your loved ones for Christmas. You don’t have children? You can come with your partner and have adorable couple photos or lovely maternity holiday images. I bet you don’t have noteworthy pictures together with your friends, so come and have some. Now it is the best time to do that, before the holiday rush.
These are fun but fast-paced days, so in order to make sure things run smoothly I have all the information you need on how the day goes right here. Because this year’s special I organized the sessions with utmost care. I added extra time to each session so people can leave the studio before the next ones arrive. So it is crucial, everybody is punctual. I guide you in Finnish or English in sessions. It is essential, that everybody in your party understands either of them.
Mini sessions take place in a beautiful studio in Espoo, Kivenlahti. (About location details and parking information, you’ll get an email a week before your session.)
