Mini Sessions

Short & Sweet portrait sessions by Beautiful Bairns

Did you miss the newborn stage but want to capture those tiny details whilst your baby is still small?

Do you want a classic family portrait but don’t want a full length photoshoot?

Are you looking to get fresh images for a modelling portfolio for your little one?

Book a mini shoot!


Classic and simple

Full payment of £195 is required upon booking.

There is no viewing appointment. Simply choose your 3 favourite images from your gallery.

Mini sessions do not include the use of studio wardrobe or props, digital backdrops or cake smash backdrops.

Images are delivered within 1 week from the session, via download link. Images will be provided edited, in high resolution, ready for printing

Can I book a mini session for a newborn?

No, newborn sessions require lots of time for baby to feed, settle and pose. Please see the newborn page for details of our newborn sessions.


Can I tell you what photos I want?

Yes, we will shoot for the specific images you want. For example one of each child and one family portrait. I will then select the best of these.


Can we bring extended family to the mini session?

No, mini sessions are suited to one family group (ie parents and child/ren) or children only. For larger family groups please book a full length family studio session so that there is plenty of time to capture individual family groups and children.


Can I buy more photos?

Yes for an additional fee I can provide you with an online gallery to view your entire gallery. Additional images may be selected and purchased for £45 each.



  • Up to 30 minute studio session
  • One neutral backdrop
  • 3 digital images
