 Michelle Studios offers an all inclusive mini sessions year around: The price is  $325 for studio or within 10 miles/ $350  if on location further than 10 miles from the studio. 

Your mini session is all inclusive which means there is  only one price that covers the session fee, camera time and images.  That price includes a 45 minutes photo shoot and use of my props, backgrounds and furniture. It also includes use of my fairy gardens for young children and babies if the weather permits.  If you are booking a princess session I have a variety of dresses that you may look through.  Two weeks after your shoot you will receive a gallery of about 10 images from which you choose the 7 that you would like.

Session Fees for full length session : The session fee is for the photographers time and talent and does not include images.

The session fee includes a 1.5 to 2 hour photo shoot and use of my extensive collection of props, back grounds and furniture. It also includes use of my fairy gardens for young children and babies. If you are booking a princess session you are welcome to look through and use one of our beautiful gowns.  Many of them are from the company Dollcake.  Click HERE to see their website.

Please note that the thematic Magical Mini sessions that are offered during some months have their own pricing page that can be found under the Magical Mini Session tab of this site.  Or you can click here to get there…

The pricing for these sessions vary.

 These are specifically theme related and are advertised here and on the Michelle Studios Facebook page as they become available. Because of the nature of these sessions they are booked on a first come first serve basis.  Again because of the nature of these sessions a deposit is due THE DAY you book to hold your spot. If payment is not made the spot may be given to someone else. She will of course contact you to clarify.

 When using most of the animals we only book about 3 hours of sessions because the animals, particularly the horses and ponies do not want to stand still that long for photos.  They are sweet but it’s in their nature to want to graze and move around.  With the bunnies we book two sessions per day, one early in the morning and one in the late afternoon.  Michelle is an advocate for animals and although she enjoys photographing them with children she is also conscious of their needs.  Michelle does not use animals like baby ducks and chicks that can be easily but accidentally hurt by young children.
