October Boston Mini Session Marathon – BOOKED OUT!

I’m so excited that you’re interested in my Mini Portrait Session Marathon! These sessions are a great way to get to experience my personal approach to lifestyle photography. They are meant to achieve one GREAT photo, they are not a substitute for my longer bespoke sessions. 10% of the proceeds from this marathon will go on to benefit Operation Smile, a charity I care deeply about as I myself was also born with cleft palate and cleft lip.

When: Sunday, October 18, 2015
WhereBoston Public Garden, meet by the Make Way for Ducklings statues
What: 20-minute mini sessions. Perfect to get an updated headshot, a family photo, a couples’ picture, or just because
Cost: $100 for up to 2 subjects for every 20 minute block, $25 for every extra subject

The Session Includes:

  • The Saavedra touch: upfront planning via email where I will learn about what you’d like to achieve in the photoshoot and how you’d like to be photographed
  • Tips for how to prep and dress for your photoshoot
  • 20 minutes of my time – 5 minutes to set up, and 15 minutes to shoot
  • An online viewing gallery to see your photographs within 2 weeks
  • 1 high-resolution digital file, no watermark, yours to keep and share

Optional extras:

  • $25 extra per extra subject. The 20-minute sessions are best for one family, if it’s a large group, I may recommend that you purchase 2 slots back-to-back
  • $20 for each additional digital file (can be purchased after seeing the gallery)
  • $100 for digital files of the entire gallery (can be purchased after seeing the gallery)

Frequently Asked Questions

How many photos can I expect?

It will really depend on conditions and cooperation of everyone involved, but you can expect around 20 – 30 photographs from each 20-minute block in your gallery

Can I see some samples?

Of course, see images from my last mini portrait session marathon in Boston here.

Can I book more than one 20-minute block?

Yes! Please indicate on the form that you’d like to have more than one block.

What if it rains?

– If there is terrible weather (raining cats and dogs) the entire day, I will cancel and refund everyone as I will not return to Boston any later this year
– If it is only rainy weather during your block, you have an option of rescheduling to a later slot if available
– If you are not available for the later slot and it was due to rainy weather, your retainer will be returned to you

What if I’m late?

Please try to arrive early! Your session cannot be extended due to tardiness

Do I get extras if I refer a friend?

Yes! For every successful referral, you get another high-resolution file, a $20 value! Refer 5 friends, and you get all the files from your session free!
