what is a mini session?

A mini session with Nickole Drake is an EXCLUSIVELY styled session (usually themed) available for a limited time and limited availability, only! They're set on specific dates and are short enough to keep dad happy and your little one's attention long enough to get some great shots. I LOVE these sessions because not only are they fun, but they are uniquely crafted!

We can't wait to work with you!



We're always changing the Mini Sessions that are current. Choose the season below to see what we have available. If there are no times showing for a specific Mini Session, it may be SOLD OUT, which happens VERY quickly. If that happens, just contact me and I'll let you know for sure.


What is a mini session?

A mini session is a quick 10-20 minutes to get a few shots of you, your child(ren), or the family and includes a couple of digital images. They're great for a season or holiday to update your photos without investing in a full blown customized session. Locations are always pre-determined, they don't allow for a lot of customizations, and are explicit about what's included. If you're wanting a custom and more intimate session, I suggest contacting me to discuss your options!

How many digital images do I get?

It depends on the Mini Session, but usually 2-5. You always have the option to purchase additional images after the session, and 99% of clients do!

What's the turnaround time?

Depending on the season, approximately 7-28 business days.
