Summer Mini Sessions
Immediate family only
$25 non-refundable RETAINER due at booking
Please read the following two points to ensure a successful sign up experience!
- My sign up form will prompt you to pay the $25 retainer before you can submit your booking. There are two ways you can pay. The easiest is to use PayPal which is linked directly to the invoice created when you sign up. You do not need a PayPal account to submit a payment. Just make sure your pop up windows are enabled, and use any debit or credit card to pay. You can also pay with Venmo, but make sure you follow these instructions: First, enter the discount code "venmo" on the invoice created. Click submit. This ensures your spot is reserved. Then, open Venmo and send me a payment. My username is @BrookeLPhotos. When you search for me, make sure you click on the Business tab! If you have any issues, call or text me at (513) 305-8987.
- The location of each session will not be listed on my sign up form. If location is important to you, take note of the locations listed below so you know what date and time frame to choose when you sign up.
A note about the locations I’ve chosen this season: I am stepping outside of my comfort zone in hopes of exploring new parks and settings for family portraits! Summer is the best season for adventure, and I want to capture your family in new and fresh environments. These areas will still offer a beautiful backdrop for traditional family photos while also giving us opportunities to capture the excitement of play.

*I discovered this lake last summer, and it’s become my “home away from home” on warm summer days. We’re going to get right by the water, so there are lots of opportunities to splash and have fun in the sand with your kids. If you book one of these sessions, I strongly suggest you bring bathing suits to change into when we’re done so you can stay and play! (Parking is free, and restrooms are available.)
**I have always wanted to try this location, but it requires membership or additional paid admission. I’m going to inquire about a group rate for the families that sign up for this date and location. I may change the location if I can’t get discounted admission.
Are you as excited as I am to make some memories and update the picture frames around your house?!
It’s hard for me to predict how many sessions to offer, so I usually start with a limited amount to ensure I can line up families back-to-back. If you do not get a spot, please send me an email with the date and time you wanted. I almost always add time slots if there’s interest.
Mini sessions are now reserved for immediate family only. (I will gladly consider exceptions to this, especially if your immediate family is small, but please reach out before booking so we can discuss.)
