Shine Photo is a Boutique Volume Studio. Mini Sessions are our Business!

Boutique:  This means you get our full luxury experience in one of our awesome locations or in our comfortable studio. Great service, fabulous products, enjoyable experience.

Volume: This means we keep prices down by sharing the expense of sessions with multiple people.  We will photograph multiple sessions on a single day … meaning we only have to set up and organize once.

We offer mini sessions for children, adults, families and your four legged kids too!

A session reservation fee is $49.00.+ HST. Products are extra. We offer mini sessions for:

  • Easter Egg Hatch MiniBirthdays
  • Personal Branding and Headshot Minis.
  • Family Sessions.  Offered  with a variety of great themes with both indoor and outdoor locations.
  • Four Legged Kid Minis. Our pet sessions are the furriest fun!
  • ‘In the Box ‘ Minis.  You’ll love these imaginative themed sets designed to create a grid collage of memories!
  • Fine Art Minis.  Longer sessions, memorable experiences, gorgeous artwork.

Over the past years, we have developed several systems to capture the images you need while keeping within a budget that you are comfortable with.   In today’s current trend towards simplification and frugal living, it’s even more important than ever to surround yourself with only those things that you love.

That’s why great portraiture, prints and wall art are at the heart of everything we do.  Surround yourself with images of the humans that make your life wonderful.  ‘Frame what you Love!”

Pricing Options

At Shine Photo we believe in fair pricing. That means fair to you, and fair to us.  We are a mid-range priced studio.  Our price list  allows you to build your own package, and encourages you to spend within your budget while aquiring the products that you love.  We have payment plan options for orders over $350.00 and  incentives that give you the most for your money!


The above pricelist does not apply to Fine Art Mini Sessions.  Micro Mini sessions have prices starting at $9.50.

Shine Locations

We have two locations to serve you. Our studio is located in the Old Crawford Street School in an up-cycled classroom. It’s bright, warm and private and has all the comforts of home. We have change rooms, salon stations, a baby change station, kitchenette and a couture closet full of props & costumes. The comforts are rounded out with top of the line studio lighting and gear, multiple cloth, paper and solid backgrounds and a full background projection system.   All this means we are READY for your mini session!

We also have a 16 acre farm in Slate River Valley.  A short 5 minute drive from White Water Golf Course lands you in the heart of this breath-taking country side.  Have your mini sessionportraits done in flowing fields, our tree-farm forest, in the loft or with our rugged out buildings and rustic fences. Need some animals to photo-bomb your shoot? We’ve got them too!


  1. Double check your time.  Arrive 10-15 minutes early and wait outside the studio. We disinfect between clients so that everything is clean and fresh for you!
  2. Check your wardrobe.  Try to color co-ordinate people in the group.  Shoes and pants should be in the same style. Don’t let one person wear strappy sandals, while someone else wears tatty sneakers.  Choose ONE color and have everyone choose clothing that blends with that color.  Your chosen color should also blend with the backdrops for your chosen mini session.
  3. Full bellies and plenty of sleep make better portraits.   Bring extra milk and diapers for infants.
  4. Leave the stress at home.  If you’ve never had a portrait done at Shine Photo, you’re in for a treat. We’ll coach your to get the best expressions and work with you to create an awesome image.  It’s a stress free zone. Relax, have a cup of coffee with us and enjoy the experience!
