St. John's First Communion

Mini Sessions

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 done before and after all masses. You must sign up in advance to participate in the mini-sessions.


Mini sessions will be 10 minutes, with a 5-minute buffer between sessions. We ask that you please make sure you have your entire group ready by the start of your session. If you do not have your entire group, we will start with whoever you do have and go from there.

How It Works

To register for a mini-session timeslot, please follow the link below for the date of your child's mass. Once there, you will have the option to book with one of the two photographers listed. If one photographer does not have an available timeslot that works for your schedule, please check the other photographer's availability. DO NOT SWITCH DATES. If there are no available time slots that work for you, please be respectful to all the families and don't book a time for the other date. If you cannot find an available session, please contact us for micro or private session options.

After you select your chosen timeslot, you will be asked to fill out a registration form. Submitting this form officially locks you in for your requested timeslot. You will then immediately receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive the confirmation email, and it is not in your spam folder, please email us at


Once your registration form is received, we will prep your payment and contract and send it over the next time we are at a computer (depending on when the form is filled out, this could take up to 3 days). Failure to process the payment and contract within 1 week of receiving it will release your timeslot and make it available again.



  • After we receive your registration form, we will set you 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 have to sign up for a new one.

  • Your mini-session is 10 minutes. Because of this, we ask you to please be extra respectful of others and 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 cannot 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.

  • Your children will be directed to the altar to take a group photo when the mass is over. If you have an "after mass" timeslot, please immediately head to the meeting location. The "after mass" sessions are usually scheduled with a buffer if mass runs late, but we can start as early as you all get there. Regardless of the start time, the session will only be 10 minutes long.

  • If mass runs later than anticipated, all "after mass" timeslots will be shifted accordingly. You will not lose time for your session if Father speaks longer than planned :-)

  • 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 interrupt 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.
