Frequently Asked Questions

What type of session can these minis be used for? These mini sessions are great for families, siblings, simple milestones (birthdays), maternity, couples and graduates/seniors. Mini sessions may not be used for newborns, headshots or extended families. Please reach out to DHP to schedule one of these sessions on another date.

How much is due up front? Due to the nature of mini sessions, your payment of $225 is due in full upon booking and is non-refundable but transferable up to one year from the session date.

Where will the mini sessions be located? Mini Sessions will be determined based on fall colors but will take place in the Downers Grove/Darien/Woodridge area. Final location will be provided one week in advance of the sessions.

How many photos will be in my mini session final gallery? Mini session galleries include 10-15 images for you to choose from.

Is this the peak weekend for fall colors? Mother Nature has her own plan so there are no guarantees. As your photographer, I have chosen a date that will hopefully ensure some fall color while also keeping you from shivering during your session. 

How does a mini session work? A mini session is a quick session that yields a few photos for you to use for holiday cards or updating your gallery wall! These sessions are held at a location pre-determined by the photographer and are only offered on a limited basis. If you would like to choose a specific location, a clothing change or are looking for a specific date, let's book a full session together!

What happens in the case of inclement weather? All weather related changes will be at the discretion of the photographer. Please keep Sunday, October 11th at the same time slot open as a rain date.

What happens if COVID causes non-essential business closures? All DHP Sessions will have the option to receive a full refund or postpone the session to a later date.

*Danielle Hardesty Photography team members will be wearing masks and sanitizing between each session. If DHP includes any stools or crates, these will also be sanitized between each family.
