Holiday Community Fundraiser Minis 2016


Thank you for supporting our Fort Smith Cooperative Nursery School fundraiser! 50% of your session fee will go to help meet the school’s fundraising goals. The school operates on minimal budgets and requires the support of fundraising and community partners to meet the needs of the students. 

Your images will be taken by Leili with support by second shooter/assistant Natalie Melnyk. We will be working with the school and the Rusty Raven to make this weekend a huge success!


~ Session Fee: The session fee is $240 and this includes the cost of up to 4 people for a 15 minute shoot, 3 high resolution digital images via online download and 2 Rusty Raven coffees. Each additional person for a minishoot is $10. Your session fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your spot using credit card/Paypal. If you are unable to pay by credit card, please message me for assistance.

Please note fees are not refundable but they are transferable. Should you need to postpone your session due to an unforeseen circumstance, we will work together to find a new date.

~Location: An outdoor location around the Rusty Raven will be selected by the photographer. You will likely be ‘checking out’ after your shoot at the coffee shop where you will receive your complimentary coffee cards. Stay a bit, hang out, shop and enjoy some coffee on us!

You will receive more specific shoot location instructions closer to the shoot date. We will have several stations set up with a holiday theme. You are welcome to bring props to add to ours…maybe santa hats??

Please note we will have a backup location should it rain or snow heavily at the time of your shoot.

~ Schedule: Below you will find a link to the online calendar to select your preferred time slot. Select ‘Next Available’ and the calendar will take you to November 12 and then November 13. Time slots are available between 11:20am-2pm both days.

Your session is 15 minutes in length and starts exactly on time. Please arrive 5 minutes early to ensure you don’t lose shooting time. You will receive a call should you not be present at the time your shoot starts.

~ Model Release & Copyright: Heidema Photography Inc. reserves the right to use images taken at your shoot for promotion and publication purposes on social media and in print.

~ Don’t forget to take advantage of this opportunity to pamper yourself. It’s always nice to look and feel fabulous for a shoot and it comes through in the images. The lovely Natalie is able to squeeze in a few ladies each morning for hairstyling. If this is something you are interested in, you will be able to indicate so on the client form once you select a date. We will get back to you with the availability on this! First come first serve.
