Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Mini Session?
Minis are short, 20-minute sessions. They will take place at a particular date, at a specific location and within a limited timeframe. These shoots are perfect for families who just want a few high quality portraits to make cards or use as gifts. 
Where will a session take place?
Allschwil wood
How long will be a session?
Minis are short, run for 20 min maximum. 
What if the weather is bad?
As much as I hope the weather will cooperate if there is a case we need to reschedule your session.  All sessions have allocated rain dates. Allocated Rain dates are the backup dates for your reserved session if bad weather prevents your session from taking place. When purchasing your Session, you are agreeing to the allocated Rain Date.
What will I get?
You will receive your photos on a personalised, password protected, online gallery within 2-3 weeks of our session. After you select your favourites I will proceed with editing and once finished send you the ready files via online platform WETRANSFER. This allows for the quickest delivery of the ready images.
Can I purchase additional images?
Yes, absolutely
What if I can not make it?
Once your session is booked, it is non-refundable (except if we need to cancel because of the bad weather forecast). 
It is also important that you reserve your time slots for backup dates. Please note that you can not claim refund if for some reason you are not available for these dates. 
Kids of what age can participate?
These sessions are recommended for kids over 4 years. If your kids are younger please book only if you are absolutely sure they will cooperate. Small kids often need some time to be accustomed to new environment and unfortunately we will be unable to grant this time since Minis are short and planned back to back.  Please note that Anastasia Tarantina Photography will not give refunds due to lack of subject cooperation (crying/upset toddler, etc.).
