    • Kristin C.August 28, 2013 - 9:35 am

      This is a great idea, especially for people planning a wedding or other major event that requires a lot of payments! Curious – will the winner be able to pick who is in their mini session? For instance, if someone wins, could they have one session with their loved one and one with their family?ReplyCancel

      • Betsy EricksonAugust 28, 2013 - 9:56 am

        They’ll have the option to use the mini session’s like any mini session meaning family/couples/kids ect. are all acceptable ways to use it. However Mini Session’s do limit to immediate family only, and up to 5 people 😉 Unless you have alot of children like we do, then we make an exception.
