The SDP fall mini sessions have always been insanely popular. So far for fall of 2017, I have three dates set; two in September and one in October. A second October date (perhaps very early November) will be set when my October work schedule becomes available on September 19th, for a total of FOUR sessions; two each in September and October. These dates typically fill up, so reserve your session now. On all days, sessions are scheduled every hour on the hour and last typically 30-40 minutes. The cost is $250.00 ($50.00 deposit required to hold your slot, balance payable at completion of session), and includes the session and a gallery of edited, full-resolution images for your download with print release (typically averaging 50 images, with a number of extra black and white versions thrown in to boot).

The fall 2017 dates are: 

Sunday, September 17th – Shawnee Mission Park, Shawnee, KS (a HUGE location offering everything from manicured park-type areas to tall prairie grass, lake, streams, and wooded areas)

Sunday, September 24th – Stocksdale Park, Liberty, Missouri (one of my perennial favorites for shooting in the fall, with gorgeous wooded and open field areas)

Sunday, October 22nd – Scherer Farms, Excelsior Springs, Missouri (a small farm complete with gorgeous red barn, maple trees, rolling hills, board fence and a picturesque pond with cattails)

I am SUPER excited about the new location at Scherer Farms. Clients choosing this location will have one-of a kind images on this barn (see images above of property) – this farm belongs to my sister, so won’t be used by any other photographers making it truly unique for SDP clients! Scherer Farms is about a 20 minute drive northeast of Liberty, Missouri, or 35 minutes northeast of downtown Kansas City, Missouri. Complete directions will be provided to clients choosing this location.

Here are some FAQs about my mini sessions:

  1. What if it rains? There will be rain dates for each of these mini session dates. If the rain date does not work for you, I will work with you to get you rescheduled on a date that everyone is available.
  2. What if none of these dates work for me, or I want a location other than the mini session day locations? You are welcome to book on any other date I have available in my calendar, by visiting www.sarahdickerson/acuityscheduling.com – September availability is up, as is the October 22nd mini session date. Other October dates will be released by September 19th, 2017, when my airline work schedule is made available to me.
  3. Are there refunds? Unfortunately, no. Deposits are nonrefundable, though in circumstances such as client illness, we can absolutely reschedule your session. Due to my full time job and the fact it involves 100% travel, I have limited availability for photo sessions and must ensure that the slots I have made myself available for are filled and going to be used. Sessions are not refundable, either, due to the custom nature of the service and end product and the downloadable nature of the files.
  4. What types of sessions can I book for the mini session dates? Almost any type that can be done at the mini session locations! Family sessions are most common, but I have also photographed children, seniors wishing a more brief session, and engaged (and married!) couples also wishing an abbreviated session.
  5. Can I bring my dog? ABSOLUTELY. I welcome pets at my mini sessions!
  6. What time of day are the sessions? Sessions go from early morning (sunrise) up until lunchtime, then break until approximately 3pm and go until sunset. The best light can be found at the very beginning and end of the day, but by breaking midday for 3 hours, we avoid the harsh light when the sun is directly overhead for all sessions.
  7. I want to get in on this, how do I book? Simply visit my booking site at www.sarahdickerson/acuityscheduling.com and follow the directions! You’ll be able to select your date and time slot, and pay your deposit. If you have pre-purchased a session from me this year and hold a coupon code, you can absolutely use them for these sessions – just enter your coupon code and you will be able to book the date and time you wish, without remitting payment.

If you have ANY questions at all about the sessions or the booking process, email me! (phone calls are unfortunately very difficult for me to return when I am on trips, so emails are absolutely the easiest way to get ahold of me as I can return them during off hours. If you do call, please be patient as if I’ve just started a trip it can be a while before I can get back to you!)

I hope to see you at one of my fall session dates, or on another date I have available!

September mini sessions – book now!

September 2nd, 2016

As promised, I’ve set two dates for mini sessions in September.

September-minis

As promised, I’ve set two dates for mini sessions in September. October’s sessions will be announced around September 22nd – while I know a lot of you go for fall color, please note due to my work/travel schedule, I cannot guarantee I’ll have a weekend date close to peak color. If I get the short end of the straw as far as schedule goes, please also note that October sessions may be held on weeknight evenings (if that were to be the best I could do!) I merely mention this so that those that choose to wait realize that my schedule may not afford me two weekend dates like September did (I was incredibly lucky!). October’s sessions will likely be at new locations to keep geography spread out – Shawnee Mission Park, for instance, is a high likelihood. Also, I will be offering something along the holiday lines in November, whenever I can work it into my schedule!

That all being said, SEPTEMBER! I have two dates set; Saturday, September 17th at Shoal Creek Living History Museum just west of Liberty, MO (just off of MO 152 Highway), and Sunday, September 25th at English Landing Park in Parkville. The former setting has lots of neat old buildings and log cabins to shoot around; the latter is more of a park-like setting, along the Missouri River, with a neat nature trail to shoot on if you prefer something more county and less manicured than the park (both are situated very near each other). Both days, I have slots available on the hour every hour from 7am to noon. I also have some other scattered availability posted during the month and may add a bit more as my schedule firms up even further, but the two dates posted above WILL be it for September weekend availability, most likely.

So where do I see this schedule and book, you ask? Well, click right here on this link and book away! EVERYTHING is automated this year including your deposit, so you can take care of everything at once! Of course, if you have any questions, by all means
email me – and I’ll confirm the session with you the week of the shoot.

Oh  – and for those new to my mini sessions, here’s what’s included: a 30-40 minute shoot, scheduled at the top of each hour (please be punctual, I’ve allowed a little bit of play time in each session in case the unthinkable happens and you run late, but any overage past the “fudge factor” I’ve allotted into the schedule will mean your session gets cut short!). After the session, I’ll edit your images within the next week and post them in an online gallery, where you can select and send me your 25 favorites. I’ll then upload these right into a download gallery where you can access and download your high-resolution files! Of course, you will also receive a print release allowing you to use these images however you wish for printing, cards, the web, or anything else.

Looking forward to working with you all once again!

Once again – you can BOOK HERE! And continue checking this link for future availability in coming months as I learn my schedule each month.
