Mini Sessions are my absolute favourite thing to photograph - it's why I schedule them all year long! And after capturing these memories for hundreds of families, the ones who return year after year are more like friends.
No matter your race, who you love, how you identify, or what your abilities are, my goal is to capture authentic, timeless memories for you to look back on for years to come.
I can't wait to see you soon!
I'm sandra! (she/her)
OWNER OF LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHY
"I highly recommend Life is Beautiful Photography! We had fun during our family mini session, and I can’t stop looking at our photos!"
"Sandra is amazing to work with! She always captures beautiful photographs that we treasure from our engagement shoot to our very first family photo session. We adore her work and are returning clients! 1000% Recommended."
"Sandra has done a few family sessions for us. She is extremely friendly and accommodating!! I am very happy with all my photos she has done for us!! Sandra you rock girl!!!"
I know - the idea of family photos can be exciting, but also a little stressful. I've been there, friend! Let's be real - no one has fun trying to get all the kids to smile in front of the Christmas tree, and photos from your cell phone rarely look good printed on your wall.
Would you believe me if I told you it doesn't have to be that way?!
You deserve quality photos (with you in them!), cherished memories, and a relaxing, fun experience with your family. These Mini Sessions will be just that and so much more!
Join hundreds of others in the Life is Beautiful Photography family, book your mini session and don't miss another moment as your family grows together!
Will I see you this fall?!
Yes! I'm in!
Pets are welcome for all sessions *except for* Fair Minis and Holiday Studio Minis. Unfortunately both of those locations do not allow animals! For all other sessions, pets are more than welcome.
01. Can we bring our dog?
Absolutely! However, please note that due to time constraints, groups larger than 6 people will be required to book two sessions, back-to-back, in order to ensure enough time to capture photos of everyone!
02. Can we include Grandparents?
Leading up to all mini sessions, I keep a close eye on the weather (ok... I stalk the weather!) to help plan accordingly. If rain or severe weather is going to impact your session, I will reach out about the possibility of rescheduling.
Unfortunately, in some scenarios, rescheduling may not be possible where there are limitations at the specific location (I.e. Western Fair has limited dates, spring flowers have a limited bloom), but I always do my absolute best to make sure everyone gets the session they are expecting!
03. What if it rains? Can we reschedule?
Your gallery will be delivered to your inbox, ready for you to select your photos, within 4-6 weeks of your session! (Tree Farm and Holiday Studio Minis are guaranteed to be delivered in time for the holidays!)
Expect a little sneak peek within 2 weeks to help ease some of your excitement!
04. When will my photos be ready?
When your gallery is ready, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to choose and download the photos you'd like. You're able to order extras, prints, and more from inside your gallery as well, and will receive full personal usage and printing rights to your photos!
05. Can I download/print my photos?
