We're so excited to offer an opportunity for 2021 spring mini sessions! Mini-sessions are 20 minutes each, at one of the two locations we have established on the specific dates below. Sessions are available for a maximum of six people in one single group. Time cannot be extended as there may be another client waiting right after you.

Details: Each mini session includes a download of 8 high-resolution images from the session. A gallery of at least 30 images will be provided to choose from. You can also upgrade your booking, to download the full gallery of images. Just select the "choose upgrades" after you select your timeslot.

Safety: We'll be masked and safely socially-distanced from all clients, and we will request all clients wear masks while waiting at the meet-up spot until their session time begins, when masks can be removed. You'll receive an email with detailed instructions for the meeting spot after booking.

Here are your fun options:

20-Minute Spring Mini Session: Presidio Park Garden & Trails

Sunday, May 9th, 2021 - Charming Arbor & Garden Minis at Presidio Park
4:30pm - 7:30pm: Slots are almost sold out!

Falling on Mother's Day, this should be an easy way for mamas to persuade their families to join them for a session. But it's not exclusive to mamas—all are welcome! Located at the south end of the park at the top of a hill, and surrounded by lots and lots of lovely trees, this area features the following options to choose from (you'll have time for two):

  • A historic and charming Spanish-style arbor
  • A big grassy area with trees in the background (we'll provide a picnic blanket)
  • Grand old draping pepper trees (California's answer to willow trees)
  • Rustic trails surrounded by beautiful curly desert aloe
  • A scenic view from the hilltop
  • Darling old-fashioned stone steps (to stand or sit on)
  • A colorful Mexican battalion mural at the site of an old fort

This location offers limited nearby street parking (which is likely to fill up on a holiday), or you can park in the large lot beside the museum and walk up (5-10 minutes). Please keep in mind that it's possible that particularly on a holiday these could all be busy areas, so none of the above locations are guaranteed.

20-Minute Spring Mini Session: Presidio Park Museum & Grove

Monday, May 10th, 2021 - Rustic Trees & Historic Architecture Minis at Presidio
4:30pm - 7:30pm - Many slots still available

A quiet Monday for likely much fewer people around, this is within view of a large parking lot so very easy-access. Located at the north end of the park, this area features the following options to choose from (you'll have time for two, possibly three):

  • The historic Spanish adobe architecture of the Junipero Serra museum
  • The arches and colonnades outside of the museum 
  • Lots of Spanish tile surrounding the building
  • Two different cozy brick staircases (surrounded by white adobe walls)
  • A eucalyptus grove (mixed in with CA pines)
  • Flowering bushes likely to be in bloom

This location's parking is very convenient, but bear on mind that there will be stairs involved, as the museum is slightly uphill from the parking lot. Please keep in mind that none of the above locations are guaranteed.
