It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Yep it's arrived.. It's time to discuss CHRISTMAS!! (My favourite time of year!!)
I did these mini Christmas themed sessions last year and they went down so well, so this year I am opening up three dates of Christmas Mini Shoots!! The first two days will be indoor studio based for little ones and the third day will be outdoor sessions for bigger families.
The photoshoots will be held on Friday 6th November, Saturday 7th November and Sunday 8th November and there will be limited spaces available which are booked online, so don't wait around to book yours!
Each mini shoot includes:
- 20 minute session
- Private online viewing gallery
- 3 high-resolution downloads, plus the option to purchase more!
The full shoot price is £50, with booking available here from 4pm on Sunday 25th October. Once you have reserved your chosen time slot, you will then be sent the payment information. A £20 non-refundable booking fee is required to secure your time slot.
There will be a few changes this year to make sure the environment is as safe as possible:
- Hand sanitiser will be available on arrival
- Masks must be worn by all adults attending the session, unless you are being photographed
- Shoots are limited to one per hour, this is to ensure the studio can be cleaned between every session
- Unfortunately there will be no props this year, but you are welcome to bring your own
- If anyone attending the shoot is showing symptoms they will be turned away
These are the perfect opportunity to get some gorgeous keepsakes of the important people in your life, which you can also use to create personalised Christmas cards or gifts - like frames prints, canvases and wall art! Personal gifts really do mean so much more than just a pair of socks or box of choccies - and they really do stand the test of time, you can add them to your decorations that you get out every year and enjoy watching how your family grows and changes each year!

Let's start with the..
Indoor Christmas Mini's
Friday 6th & Saturday 7th November
All sessions will be in my studio with a 'Night Before Christmas' theme, in a gorgeous neutral colour palette. A minimalistic studio style shoot with gorgeous little festive touches, you can bring your little ones in their favourite Christmas jumper, a cute pair of pj's or just something smart!! We will start off with some simple photographs which can be used all year round, then will create a bedroom theme to create a festive 'Night Before Christmas' feel. Unfortunately I will not be providing props this year, but you are welcome to bring your own! Ofcourse there will be Christmas music throughout (with plenty of crazy dance moves from me I'm sure!)
These mini indoor shoots will take place at my home in Burbage, Leicestershire. There is plenty of parking and a park nearby so you can treat the little ones after to a play in the park too!
Due to backdrop space these mini's are limited to up to 2 children.
And now onto the next shoot option...
Outdoor Christmas Mini's
Sunday 8th November
Natural outdoor mini sessions which are perfect for bigger families - and including you adults in the mix too! These shoots can also be dressed up to be as festive as you like them, you can choose to all wear Christmas jumpers and bring along your craziest hat, or you could keep it simple with neutral coloured knitwear - it's totally up to you!
These sessions will take place in Burbage Common, Hinckley which has the most beautiful wintery look I have found locally - I love it there for photoshoots!!
So what are you waiting for?
BOOK YOUR CHRISTMAS MINI SHOOT TODAY!
Booking is available here from 4pm on Sunday 25th October
Now I know many of you don't even want to think about Christmas yet, but the truth is that the earlier you start planning for it the less stress you will get in the lead up - meaning you can really enjoy putting your tree up, watching Christmas films and drinking festive hot chocolates to your hearts delight all through December because you will know you have beautiful gifts already sorted!
The Christmas Photoshoot mini sessions are deliberately being held in November, this is to make sure you can rest easy knowing that you will receive your photographs and products in plenty of time ahead of Christmas.
But remember, there are limited slots available on all days so be sure to grab yours if you’re keen to secure some professional family portraits to use for Christmas photoshoot gifts
If you're still questioning why Christmas portraits are so important... I want to leave you with one last thing - the reason why I decided to do these mini's.
'A family only has a limited number of Christmases before their whole family changes forever'
... that honestly struck a cord with me - it really got me thinking about past years when I had taken photographs of my family and how things had changed so quickly! Especially with the year we have had, having photographs of your little ones to share with family and friends who haven't been able to watch them grow is so amazing! .. and seeing their little excited faces around Christmas is amazing too!
(The reason also could be because I'm a crazy Christmas loving lunatic.. maybe!)
I hope this has given you an insight into what these sessions are all about - and why I think they're so special!
If you would like to book a slot then just..
Thanks for reading!!
