Mini sessions are a great fit for lots of families with different portrait photography needs. Mini sessions with Jodi Walsh Photography offer a mix of creative and fun sessions (mermaids, princesses, and more), along with those yearly, must-have images (Mommy & Me, wildflowers, snow, etc.)


mini session details

what to expect

Clients can expect 20-30 minutes of on-location portrait photography for an individual or single family.

Even with the limited time, sessions are relaxed with no pressure to perform but because I don't schedule my sessions back-to-back, I always have plenty of time to coax smiles from even the most challenging subject.

*no print or digital products are included with this fee*

what happens next?

Your client gallery will be ready approximately two weeks after your portrait session (you can expect to receive email updates on the editing progress).


Clients will receive an email invitation to view their gallery slideshow. All portraits are presented in the brief 1-2 minute slideshow. After viewing the slideshow, choose and purchase the collection that best meets your needs and budget. All collections include a set number of digital files with a release for you to keep, print, and share at your convenience.

A la carte products are only available after purchasing a collection.

additional info
  • Location: Location and other specific details for mini sessions are shared when you start the booking process. Most mini sessions are planned in the North Hills area of Pittsburgh.
  • Pets: Pets are always welcome- just let me know so that we can make a plan that keeps everyone happy.
  • Rescheduling: If the weather doesn't cooperate on the day of the mini, we'll work together to find a time to reschedule.
  • Themed Minis: For mermaid & princess mini sessions, the costume or gown will be provided along with accessories to add to the magic.
  • Gallery Slideshow and Personal Gallery Store. After your session, you'll be invited to watch your gallery slideshow. Grab some snacks, cozy up together, and enjoy watching all of those special moments we captured. Once you've watched your slideshow, you can choose your collection and enjoy access to your personal gallery store. In your store, you can see your images as print products- framed, in albums, or even in loose prints. It's the perfect way to start seeing your images on display in your home.
