Mike Chan Photography | 2015 Fall | Holiday Mini Sessions




LOCATION-SACRAMENTO: Land Park, Sacramento State Capitol, McKinley Rose Garden, Laguna Town Hall, Elk Grove Park

Also open to your own location of choice


It's that time of year again!  The weather is getting cold, the days are shorter, the leaves are changing colors, and the holidays are upon us!  What a great time to get some photos done with your family, love one, or for yourself.  You can use the images for the home, to share online, and for greeting cards.  From now until the final week before Christmas, set a time aside to do your photos with me!  It will be in Sacramento or a location of your choosing (within reason) for about 45 mins.  You will get 25 high-res images with the option to purchase more.  Date and time are dependent on availability and order of booking.



Q:  What is required to book a session:

A:  A 50% retainer fee is required as well as a signed contract.  Everything is done electronically online.

Q:  What happens if I need to reschedule or cancel?

A:  You may reschedule depending on the remaining date and times available.  Priority will be given to those booked before you.  Refunds will only be given to cancelations made at least 48 hours before your session time.  

Q:  How many people are allowed in the session?  

A:  The session is for a group of up to 4 people.  A $10 fee is required for an additional person.  Pets are welcomed at no charge.

Q:  Will you provide props?

A:  Props are a personal choice so you can bring your own props.  

Q:  What type of files will you get?

A:  You will get high-res JPEG images

Q:  How will the images be delivered:

A:  Your images will be delivered online in a private password-protected gallery.  From there, you can download and share your images with others.

Q:  Will I be able to print the images at my own location of choosing?

A:  Yes, you will get a print release letter from me with permission to print where ever you like.   

Q:  How long will it take to get my images?

A:   You will get your images within at least a week from the time of the session.

Q:  Can I get the images on DVD or USB?

A:  Yes, you an purchase a customized DVD or USB with your images.

Q:  Will the images be edited?

A:  All the images will get the standard edit for color, contrast, and exposure.  A select few will get retouched per my discretion.  You can purchase the advance editing option which will include a full retouch of images, which removes blemishes, hair, and removing objects, etc.

Q:  What should I/we wear?

A:  Solid colors works best in a monochromatic scheme.  Pair a primary color to a complimentary color for a nice contrast.  When choosing the colors, consider how the images will look in your home or on your print material.  Wear clothing suitable for the weather and coordinate with the group.

Q:  Should I get my hair and makeup done?

A:  The decision is up to you, but highly recommended.  When you're looking your best, you will have more confidence and in return, your photos will look better.  If not professionally done, then at least take the time to groom and tidy up to bring out the best of you!

Q:  What if I want more than a 45 minute session?

A:  I have other sessions available, which is the everyday standard pricing and sessions times.  Please direct inquiries to mikechanphoto@gmail.com.
