Family Mini-Days

Children Photography | Focus Photography by Susan

You receive a $250 value for just $175. (plus tax, of course). Not your year for the big family portraits session, but you’d really like a nice holiday card this year? I’m booking two dates for just that purpose at a special package rate.

 Package One
10 Image Digital Package $175

(includes session fee)


Package Two
All Images Digital Package $200

(includes session fee)




Saturday, May 16th, 2020
Guthrie area, Mpls (Outdoors)
* Please indicate a.m. or p.m. preference


Saturday, October 24th, 2020
Nature Area in/around Woodbury
* Please indicate a.m. or p.m. preference


We’ll chat before your session date so that I know what you are hoping to come away with and then spend up to 20 minutes photographing on your session day. You’ll come away with 10-15 fully-edited images in your password-protected gallery and your choice of at least 10 digital images! Easy-peasy and fun, too, with plenty of time to figure out your family’s wardrobe. Here are the details!

How to Book:

  • Call, email or PM me your chosen location/date and I will send you details on securing your preferred time based on what I have still available. A $50 non-refundable deposit is due at time of booking to secure your chosen date and time. NOTE: your deposit WILL be returned if both your date and backup date are cancelled by me due to weather or if I would happen to be ill. You shouldn’t worry. I’m awfully easy to work with…ask your friends. 🙂
  • The remainder of the Package One balance is due on your session date. You will have the opportunity to upgrade your package to Package Two at any time.
  • For your planning purposes, in case of rain, the backup date will be the following day of your originally scheduled session at the same time.

High School Seniors

Class of 2021 High School Senior clients who book and complete their session for June, 2020 will receive a FREE Image Block ($40 value).

Also new this year…ANY seniors who purchase the High School Seniors Digital Package will receive one FREE HS Senior Proof Book (a $100 value!)

      Please take a few minutes to make sure that you have everything that you may want from your Focus Photography by Susan sessions from 2011 – 2017!


      If you would like to review what I still have stored for your family, please let me know by April 15th, 2020 and I would be happy to search for them and re-share so you can feel secure in what you have.


      One Last Thing…

      Whether you’ve worked with me in the past, booked and completed a session this past year, or even just inquired about photography with me…you are appreciated and I wish you health and prosperity in this new year.

      Please enjoy
