Holiday Mini Sessions with Lin and Jirsa Associates
45 minutes | 25 images
Fall props included
Orange County Park Location | Jeffrey Open Space Park, Irvine, CA
This is a great opportunity for those who are looking for some good photos to choose from for their holiday cards and do not need a full session. These sessions will be photographed by one of our LJP Associate Photographers and will be roughly 45 minutes and will take place outdoors in Orange County.
Q: What should we wear?
A: Colors: Solid monochromatic colors are easiest to coordinate, but primary or complementary colors also look great and bring energy to the photograph. Darker colors will cause the subject(s) to appear thinner while lighter colors will make the subjects appear larger. Dark pants or jeans with dark shoes give texture and visually anchor a portrait. When choosing color schemes, consider not only what looks best on you, but also what colors will look best on wall portraits and complement your home’s décor.
Accessories: Keep it to a minimum. Avoid hats, hair ornaments, and sparkly or costume jewelry unless it does not distract from the main subject, you.
Footwear: Avoid running shoes, white socks, and heavy footwear. Also, consider fashionable boots, sandals or bare feet for casual photos.
Props: Props are always a great way to help showcase your personality in your photos.
Q: How many people can I bring?
A: Since this is for your holiday cards, we recommend just your immediate family.
Q: Should I get my hair & makeup done?
A: We want you to feel beautiful and confident. Confidence radiates in photos. Looking good on camera doesn’t require a makeup artist, but professional makeup tips help. Even if you prefer a natural look, the camera tends to exaggerate flaws and create artificial ones. Who needs that? These camera-friendly makeup tips focus on makeup application that enhances rather than detracts from your looks. Click here for more makeup tips.
Q: Do you touch up all the images in our image download?
A: Yes we do. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style of post production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. Many photographers will not post produce any images, or will only post produce “select” images from your wedding. This means that you may have pictures that are too dark, have strange skin tones or other common photography flaws.
Q: What do you mean by “touching up” the photos?
A: “Touching up” in our studio is the same as our signature (basic) post production. See the question below for clarification.
Q: What is the difference between advanced and custom; and why are there additional costs for custom retouch?
A: Advanced post production includes touch ups such as removal of blemishes, removal of bags under eyes, removal of fly-away hairs, etc. On the other hand, custom post production is anything that requires extensive, custom work in Photoshop such as removing entire objects from the scene, changing the size and shape of body parts or other objects in the scene, adding objects to a scene and other custom work. We charge hourly for the custom post production as the time required ranges depending on the complexity of the project.

Q: What happens if I need to reschedule or cancel?
A: Mini sessions can only be rescheduled within the mini session dates and times if any are available. Refunds can be given only if cancelation is received 24 hours before your slot. Please email [email protected] to cancel.
