Details & Policies

  • Mini sessions are perfect for 1-5 people—larger groups, please book a regular portrait session with us.
  • Your $500 non-refundable deposit is due upon booking and will be applied to your order (you will choose your package after you have seen your images). Our smallest package is $650 for three high-resolution portraits.
  • Mini sessions are non-transferable and non-refundable. If emergency arises, and you are unable to make it to your session, we will do everything we can to help you fill your spot.
  • Your full-service ordering appointment will be over a live Zoom call or in person at our Mt. Lebanon studio. At this time, you will have the opportunity to select your favorite portraits, design custom artwork, and choose a package. This will be your only opportunity to view and select your images (no online galleries before ordering).
  • The rain date is exactly one week following your session (same time & place). KEEP THIS EXTRA DATE OPEN ON YOUR CALENDAR JUST IN CASE. Weather policy is here: www.missytimko.com/weather. EXCEPTION: Shadyside minis will be moved up ONE HOUR in case of postponement due to daylight savings.

COVID Concerns

Allegheny County is currently in a medium-low transmission range for COVID, though there may be an uptick in the fall. We are aware that some of you may have unvaccinated children or other risk factors or concerns. I like to think that outdoor portraits are one of the few family activities that can be done completely safely during a pandemic!

We are bringing back studio minis this year! At this shoot, you may run into another family as you come and go, and we anticipate a mask-free environment since our clients cannot wear masks during their shoots. If this is concerning, we recommend booking an outdoor shoot.

We will do everything we can to make sure you and your family stay safe and comfortable! We'll start by following all current CDC guidelines at the time of your shoot. Jeremy and I are both fully vaccinated and we both plan to receive the new booster as soon as it becomes available, likely this September.

Lastly, though we highly recommend an in-person ordering appointment, we will give you the option to review and order your portraits at a Zoom ordering appointment if you prefer to avoid an in-person meeting at our studio. We request that if you have had any recent high risk of exposure (eg, Covid+ family member) or symptoms, you let us know so that we can accommodate you.
