Themed Mini Sessions

2022 Outdoor Halloween Mini-Sessions

October 22nd, Opens at 10am



For Halloween Sessions, we offer collectible business-card-sized flat magnets to help decorate for Halloween year after year. We also offer cute collectible 4" square acrylic blocks to decorate your tabletops and hearths during the Halloween season. Choose the package and the timeslot together.
For Halloween mini sessions, you must add extra sibling time if you have more than one child, but if you have more than 2 children, you only need to add the extra time once, unless you want more time. We do individual photos first, then sibling group costume photos if the allotted time allows, depending on how cooperative the children are. If you want additional magnets or acrylic blocks for siblings, you can call me to add them ahead of time, or add them on the day of the shoot.

Since covid is still on the prowl, we treat this event like the health rules for a cruise ship and follow the Center for Disease Control's recommendations. Please note that if anyone in your household has a fever of 100 or more, a cough, has thrown up, or has had diarrhea in the two days prior to the event, your family will not be allowed to participate.

2022 Albuquerque Christmas Mini Sessions TBD




Unfortunately with Santa being a senior citizen (and in the high-risk category for COVID), he will be taking a break again this year, hopefully resuming 2022.  We will be doing our holiday mini-sessions on an evergreen set in the back of the studio.  All sessions this year are extended 15-minute sessions with a 5 min transition between families (with a limit of 4 families per day). We have time for each person in the family to bring and hang their favorite ornament and for the family to bring and read their favorite holiday book on set as well as some family portraits in front of the tree. 





For 2022, we will offer two types of sessions:
(1) 15-minute mini-session with Low-Res (Facebook sharing quality) images
(2) 15-minute session with Print-Res images (print up to 8x10).
(3) Just like last year you may add:
* Acrylic blocks, 
* Metal ornaments, and
* Holiday cards 
We will not be taking orders during the session, so all add-ons must be added ahead of time.

Images will be delivered via Dropbox for digital download.

2nd Annual Superhero Super-Session

June 24th-25th 10am-1pm



Bring your own favorite superhero costume, or choose from several capes and masks we have here in our studio collection!!!

We have an awesome cityscape background, with lots of WIND to fill the sails of your super-crime fighting powered cape! 


METAL PRINTS
With this high-contrast mini-session, we'll be printing images on aluminum in a 5x7 tabletop format with a stand. If you add sibling time, you automatically will get a second metal print since we are shooting these individually for each child. 

SIBLINGS
With the contrast lighting and tabletop print format, images will be of individual children, so for siblings, add a consecutive timeslot for each additional sibling - your package will come with extra time and an additional tabletop metal print. You only need to add digital images once for your entire family. If Paypal is not letting you checkout, the timeslot may be taken. Unfortunately, it doesn't auto-update the dropdown list, but it won't let you check-out with a timeslot that is already taken. I update it periodically manually. Please call me if you are having trouble and I can look at the schedule and see where we can fit you it and update the dropdown list.

ABQ Back to School Mini-Sessions

2022 Dates: Evenings Aug 8-9, 5pm-7:30pm

I'm so excited to offer this 2nd annual Back-to-School mini-session this year. I refinished a 1930's antique desk that has been in my family since the 60's. The sessions will be outdoors during Golden Hour. Depending on if your school is on the extended days schedule or not, sessions will be the few days before or the week after your school starts.
 




Have your child bring their:
* Backpack
* Favorite Pencil & Notebook
* Or Favorite Stuffed Animal (if they cannot write their name yet)


Includes:
* 10 min session per child for a "school portrait" and some other activities. (There is a 5 min break between families to allow for covid wipe-downs)
* All the best images from each session (20-30), globally edited, in medium resolution - print up to 4x6"
* High Res upgrades, School Portrait Prints, and photo gifts available to add below the sign-ups. Add all sibling timeslots, prints, etc to the cart and just check out once.


Instructions:
Please add back-to-back timeslots for all children in the same immediate family. The price goes down for each additional sibling. You may also add school portrait print packages and photo gifts at a discount when you book. Images will be delivered via Dropbox for digital download 1-2 weeks after the shoot.

These photos are taken individually, but there is an option for sibling photos with all the kids together. If you want a photo with all kids together, add the "combined" sibling sitting as an additional child.

Mini-Session FAQ

I've gotten a few questions and many depend on the current health mandates. I will update this link periodically:
Here is the Aug 17th, 2021 health mandate with updates:
https://cv.nmhealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/081721-PHO-Masks.pdf
Do We have to wear masks?
Yes, All children over the age of two must arrive and check-in wearing a multi-layered, non-vented mask until your call time. Please use hand sanitizer upon arrival, sign in, and stay masked in the on-deck waiting area until you are called down for the shoot. At that point, participants actively in the session will take masks off, and put them back on when not actively in a photo, even for outdoor mini-sessions. 
How many people can be in the sessions? Can Grandparents come? To prevent any unnecessary exposures, we will only photograph members of the same household together for mini-sessions, even in open outdoor settings.  Up to 5 people may participate in full outdoor sessions (Grandparents allowed for full sessions where we have more space to move around, but would need a double session for the extra people.). 
Can I bring my dog? If you want to book a separate outdoor family session at a location that allows dogs, then absolutely! But for mini-sessions, only your humanoid children will be allowed to participate. 
What happens if one of my kids gets sick? We recommend limiting all exposure points in the 2 weeks prior to your session to make sure no one gets sick, but your household will not be allowed to participate if anyone else in the household has symptoms of sickness within 2 days of your session, or potentially exposed to a positive case of COVID within 2 weeks of your session.  Please refer to Terms below. 

TERMS: Due to COVID, we have strict restrictions for participation, following the Center for Disease Control's and WHO's recommendations. Please note that if anyone in your household has a fever of 100 or more, croup, cough, sore throat, nasal discharge, had any COVID symptoms defined by the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/clinical-guidance-management-patients.html), has thrown up, or has had diarrhea in the two days prior to the event, or been in contact with anyone testing positive for covid or had a positive case at their school, child care, work, gym, or home within 2 weeks prior to your session, your entire household will not be allowed to participate. Please keep your kids away from contagion in the weeks before the event. Masks and social distancing are required for all persons 2+ as local health mandates require. The maximum number of participants is dictated by local health mandates for allowed gathering sizes and/or household restrictions (currently 5 from immediate household only at the time of this writing, but subject to change). If you are not able to participate due to sickness or any other emergency or situation, you are always allowed to give or sell for the same price your tickets to a friend and let me know who will be taking your place. 

Please note that we are shooting outdoors on uneven ground such as gravel, river rocks, and a steep hill. You certify that you are over 18 years of age entering into this agreement. You acknowledge that tickets are non-refundable, but are transferable to another family; give permission for images from this session to be posted to Facebook and other media, and used for future advertising; acknowledge that the event will happen rain, wind, snow, or shine; agree to dress your family in proper clothing and footwear for the weather and outdoor activities; acknowledge that bathrooms will not be available for mini-sessions; accept all risks, release from liability, indemnify, and hold harmless Ell Photography LLC, Kira King Design LLC, Kira Jarmer, and any of its employees, agents, or property representing or related to event, including any and all liability for personal injuries (including disease or death) and property losses or damage occasioned by, or in connection with any activity or accommodations for this event; agree to abide by all the rules and regulations promulgated where event will occur, by hosts, city ordinances, and health mandates.
