I offer Mini Sessions ONE TIME PER YEAR ONLY! Mini Sessions are for EVERYONE and may be used by Families (up to 6 people), Seniors, Children & Couples Sessions. Mini Sessions take place in public locations that are easily accessible & have pretty, even, natural light that allows me to deliver consistent images. Since these sessions are FAST, we won't have the opportunity to move around to multiple backgrounds. 
Your Mini Session includes an outfit consultation, a 20 or 30 minute session at one of the locations above and a shareable online gallery of 20-30 proof images...
You have TWO Mini Session options:
Mini: $300 includes 20 minutes of shooting & credit to pick your favorite 10* images from your gallery for high res download. *you may purchase additional images beyond your credit for $30 per digital. If you find that you love all the images and want to unlock your gallery after the gallery is delivered, it will be $150 for unlimited images from your gallery. 
Upgraded: $400 includes 30 minutes of shooting & you will have unlimited access to ALL hand edited images from your unlocked & shareable gallery for high resolution download! (20-30 images)  

1. Pick the date, location & open time slot and then visit the Pricing & Booking page on my website! 
2. Choose the Location & Type of Session (Mini or Upgrade) and make sure to specify the date & time slot you'd like. 

3. Once I've confirmed your booking,  you must pay your mini session fee electronically! This is non-refundable but it is transferable to another date should you need to reschedule. Please keep in mind that if you are late to your session I will not be able to extend beyond your time slot! 

Payment Options:
Zelle (
Venmo (@AlyMallon) 
PayPal (
It is highly likely that your banking institution uses "ZELLE" and I promise it is not hard to set up... but if you must pay by check, please let me know and I'll send you my mailing address.  I do not consider a slot taken until it's paid for... it's the only way to keep it fair!!! I will remove the time slots from the list as they are filled to cut down on confusion.

FULL & Extended SESSIONS: These sessions allow you more choice when it comes to your portrait session. You choose a date that works for you, a location that you like and you're afforded more shooting time and more digitals included in your package. Full sessions are $550 and include 60 minutes of shooting and 20 of your favorite images for high resolution download. Extended Family Sessions are for larger families (up to 10 people) and are $650. They include credit to pick your favorite 30 images. You can always unlock your galleries for $150. You can schedule these by requesting to BOOK NOW on my website OR emailing me directly regarding slots I have open for FULL SESSIONS:
