Expectation: Five minutes is not a lot of time to organize a group photo, and posing is not my specialty (flying toddlers is more my jam lol), so our goal is literally just ONE quick pic. This is perfect for something like an updated family posed pic where you don't need further breakdowns of the family members. But again, come in with the goal of one gorgeous photo, and I'll do my best as always, to underpromise and overdeliver.
Quick Smile sessions are designed for families with children ages 5+. We find that with cooperative subjects we can easily accomplish a goal photo and sometimes a bonus or two pretty darn quickly. Of course, you know your child best. Sometimes I've had children over age five who absolutely do not want to be photographed or who are shy and need time to warm up to me. It's not my goal to force any child or disappoint parents so please only sign up if you feel this would be a stress free option for you and your child. Refunds are not given due to non-cooperation for these session types.

Eligibility: Families of up to six family members. All children, if any, must be ages 5+ (read above for more).
Our scenery: I think it goes without saying, but just to cover my butt, please remember that I have absolutely no control over the scenery. I can't guarantee blossoms or a sunset sky any more than I can sun vs clouds (although some past stormy dramatic sessions have been AWESOME). May and August Quick Smiles may even take place in the farm market parking lot (a personal fave)I will use my best judgement to request a location within the orchard that will give us the best light for your photos. Most of the spring and summer is just plain beautiful grass and trees and fall goes from green to bare pretty quickly. Keep expectations simple and realistic.
Rain: Each date in the dropdown box includes a rain date. Please only sign up if you can make the rain date if needed or are willing to forfeit your session if you cannot make it.
The mean rules: I am not responsible for any glitches or checkout errors from Big Cartel/PayPal's checkout process. A PayPal receipt in your email shows successful purchase. No refunds will be given for accidental purchase, illness, lateness, etc. If you are unable to make your session date you may sell your spot or trade times lots with another client as long as both parties agree.
Time slots: The time you sign up for is approximate depending on sun vs clouds that day and if we are in an area of the orchard that is open sun vs shaded woods. Your time may change +- 30 minutes as this is an approximation for now.
Social media use: My pricing reflects the ability to show off these beautiful sessions on our social media and share them with Linvilla Orchard's marketing team. Plus, it's a fun way for me to post sneak peeks for you while I edit. I don't use full names or tag clients without their permission,
Within a few days of purchase, I'll send over contracts and details to the email you used to purchase this with. If you prefer another email just let me know at email@example.com
