Mini Sessions! Why they can work for you! | Chameleon Studio Photography | Rochester, Indiana

I have many parents ask me about mini sessions.  They worry that 30 minutes just isn’t enough time to get different outfits or looks.  The mini sessions are PERFECT for those in-between times when you don’t need a ton of prints or photos, but you want to capture a child at this age.  Honor is 6 months old, and like most babies her attention span doesn’t last long, so a mini session is perfect for her!  In this session, I took 50 shots, and immediately after her session, I uploaded the photos and Honor’s mother got to sit down and choose her 10 favorite for me to touch-up or edit!  (Trust me…it is never easy to narrow down to only 10 photos, especially with a cutie like this!) At this time, you can decide if you’d like to purchase more images, prints, canvases, or any other special customized products available only at Chameleon Studio Photography! There is NO requirement to order anything! That’s right, I never have any crazy minimum purchase requirements!  Mini Sessions are perfect for 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, and even some of those toddler/child/teen years.  (For important milestone photos like newborn, 1st birthday, 16th birthday, senior photos…etc, you’ll want more time, so a mini session wouldn’t work.) Mini-sessions, most are offered in my studio.  On occasion, I do allow outdoor mini sessions (these would take place near my studio or downtown Rochester). Cost of a mini sessions is $125 and that includes 10 digital images.   If you have questions about mini-sessions or would like to book a session, please contact me you can also call me at 574-835-1321.

Rochester, Indiana 2014 Senior Photography | Caston High School | Haley Hoover

I knew when Haley’s mom contacted me about senior photos for her daughter, I was going to have a blast at her session.  Haley is an all-around standout athlete on Caston’s High School volleyball team, but she loves to glam it up on occasion, which makes my Senior Pro package perfect for her! Included in Haley’s pro package is professional hair & make-up by an amazing stylist right here in Rochester.
We started out in Rochester for her professional styling, then ended up running to Haley’s school in Fulton, Indiana to use the gym (thanks Caston for allowing us to come in and set-up all our extensive lighting equipment).  I had an amazing time getting to know Haley, her mom, and younger sister, and I look forward to hearing about her future volleyball career!
Check out just a few of her images from her session then contact me  to set up your own unique senior session!

Meanwhile…enjoy this little cutie’s images from his 3 month mini session! 20 min’s may not seem like much time, but you’d be surprised how many images and different looks we end up with!  I think Mr. J  has modeling in his future.  He spent a lot of time giving me a ton of smiles and looking straight into my camera’s lens.  SO CUTE!  Cannot wait for his next session.  His mama has already gave me a few ideas of what we will be doing for that one- yay!!!

When Amy and Tony told me they were up to do anything, they meant it!  I hauled them from one side of town to the other and even had Amy do some climbing in that cute dress and heals!  Not once did they hesitate, they completely put their trust in their photographer and I know I had a great time with them!  I’m certainly looking forward to their wedding later this year!
