June Mini Session

The June mini session schedule is now booking! There are two dates and both are for family photos this month.

There is a little variety in the types of minis I am offering this year, so make sure you sign up for the right one! This month there are two locations, so make sure you pick the one you want. Some of these dates have only 2-4 sessions offered, so make sure to book as soon as you can.

June 22nd, Thursday. Kubota Gardens Family Mini Sessions 5:30, 6 pm, 6:30 pm 7 pm

These sessions are for your family! Come and have your session in one of Seattle’s hidden gems, Kubota Gardens in south Seattle! The garden is well manicured and one of my favorites places to have family portrait sessions.

June 25th, Sunday. Seward Park Upper Loop Family Mini Sessions Morning: 9 am and 9:30 am

These sessions are made to beat the heat during the more shady times of day at Seward Park Upper Loop. Seward Park is my favorite location to photograph families. Bring a snack and stay and play afterwards.

If none of these dates and times work for you, keep your eyes open for summer mini session dates coming out soon.

Mini Session Packages

To book your sessions you will be asked to make a $50 retainer. This retainer reserves your spot. You will choose your package for purchase when you see your gallery online.

The online galleries have the option to purchase both digital and physical products.

All the Digitals $350

This is for you if you just want all the digitals plain and simple. You can make your own prints, gifts, and enjoy them on all your devices.

10 Digital Images $225

This is for you if you just want your favorites (and your favorites are just 10 images). I work to create a variety of images for you to choose from.

5 Digital Images $150

This package is great if you have a specific use in mind, like a gift or one photo of you all together. I have to warn you though, it can be really hard to get just 5 images!

You will also have the option to purchase professional prints, canvases, and other products. This is not required, but optional and you will see the offers in your online gallery. Tax is applied to all purchases of digital and physical products. If you have questions feel free to reach out: aovena@amandaovena.com

Sign up

To sign up you can click on the link below and pay your retainer through PayPal (if you need to pay another way, please reach out: aovena@amandaovena.com). Your retainer will reserve your date. (You will purchase your package separately.)

After you sign up and pay your retainer you will receive a contract and questionnaire. Once you complete them both you will be officially booked for your session!

Feel free to ask questions beforehand: aovena@amandaovena.com

Booking Link


There are only 6 sessions being offered this month so snag one while you can.


What will we do if it rains?

I keep my eye on the weather report and will be in contact before our session if it looks like it could rain. If we do have to cancel we will rebook for another same day of the week. I will also offer you a spot in the next month’s mini sessions. Fingers crossed for a beautiful June!

What if we have an emergency or my child wakes up sick?

If you have an emergency or illness please reach out ASAP. I evaluate these on a case by case basis. Generally, I will offer you a space in the next mini session.

What if you have to cancel the sessions?

If I have an emergency or illness I will be in touch ASAP. I will offer everyone another date. If you cannot make any of the other dates I will refund you retainer.

Can I cancel or reschedule?

If you need to reschedule because something comes up, you can do so 48 hours in advance and move your deposit to another date. You can cancel if you give you 48 hours advanced notice and receive a refund of your retainer. After 48 hours your retainer will used to cover the cost of your missed session.

Can I bring my dog?

These sessions do not include dogs. I do have some sessions that do. Full sessions can definitely include your dog so check out those sessions if you want to bring a furry friend. Send me a message to ask about dog sessions and check out this link to full session: Fully Family Sessions

What should I wear?

I do have a What to Wear Guide and blog post, you can check them out here: https://www.amandaovena.com/?p=608

One of my family members has special needs, can you accommodate our family?

I do my best to accommodate all special needs. Since these sessions are in public parks a lot of my ability to accommodate will be dictated by the location. However, if you reach out before you book we can definitely talk about which location would work best for you and how I can accommodate your family.
