St. John's First Communion
Exclusive to St. John's parish, are our 10-minute mini-sessions available to the families receiving their First Communions.
We have many clients within the parish who we have been working with for a while, and we're excited to not only see some familiar faces but to make some new friends as well!
What We're Offering
For $50 you will receive a 10-minute private mini-session which you may use for portraits, detail pictures, and/or family pictures. Your online private gallery will be "unlocked", which means full-resolution non-watermarked images are all included in your package.
Scheduling your Mini Session
Mini sessions will be split into "before mass" groups, and "after mass". On the form, you can select if you would like a slot before or after your specific mass. Sessions will be filled first-come, first-serve (the sooner you put your lead in, the more likely you will be to get a time close to your mass).
The "before mass" slots will be filled starting with a time slot 30 minutes before your mass starts, and will be filled moving backward. For example, the first available time for a 10:00 am mass will be 9:30 am, with the next available at 9:20 am.
The "after" slots will start approximately an hour and 20 minutes after mass starts. For example, the first slot time for a 2:00 pm mass would be 3:20 pm.
20 available spots 8:00 am - 9:30 am (last slot ends at 9:40 am)
26 available spots between 11:20 am - 1:30 pm (last slot ends at 1:40pm)
5 spots available between 3:20 pm - 4:00 pm (last slot ends at 4:10 pm) -- April 29th ONLY
How It Will Work
To register and purchase a mini-session timeslot, please fill out the form below. Our system will send you an immediate reply to make sure we didn't end up in your spam folder. You will then hear back from us within a few days to confirm your registration, letting you know your assigned time slot, and giving you the information for processing your quote (signing a contract, making your payment, etc).
**PLEASE NOTE** To keep things simple for everyone, timeslots will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.
INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TIMESLOTS (Read: please don't skip over this part):
After we receive your lead from the form below, we will get you set up with your time slot and you will receive an email with your quote to process to pay for your session and sign your contract. Please note that each quote has an expiration date. If you fail to process your quote by the expiration date, your quote will expire and you will forfeit your previously assigned timeslot and will have to sign up for a new one.
Your mini-session is 10 minutes and will be booked back-to-back to aid with time restrictions and other masses and sacraments being received at the church. Because of this, we ask you to please be extra respectful about your assigned time.
We cannot make up for lost time due to being late for your time slot. We are on a tight timeline and will not be able to accommodate late arrivals. Payments will not be refunded for late/missed timeslots.
Due to the tight timeline restrictions, we cannot accommodate multiple extended family group portraits. The more people that are involved, the more time it will take out of your 10-minute window.
When the service is over, your children will be directed to the altar to take a group photo. If you have an "after mass" timeslot, please immediately head to the meeting location to keep things on time.
The designated meeting spot will be near the statue of Mary, outside the church between the church and rectory. Please be there just before your time slot so we don't use up your session time.
After the Sessions are Over
When your gallery is ready, an email will be sent to you with the link and password information.
