Mini Christmas Session

Capture the magic of Christmas. We are thrilled to announce that our much-anticipated Christmas mini-photography sessions for 2023 are finally here! Whether you’re a loyal returning client or a first-time visitor, we can’t wait to share the joy and excitement of the holiday season with each and every one of you. As summer ends, our focus always shifts toward our end-of-year holiday setups. We spend the first part of the year thinking of new and fresh ideas to integrate into our holiday set, and as summer hits, we are materializing these ideas into props, backdrops, and textures to fill the scene and create a holiday mood. We love the holidays because it gives us a chance to reconnect with our clients. For some, our sessions have become a cornerstone of their holiday traditions, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it! We look forward to seeing you and helping you preserve these memories for your family.

Book Now! Spots are limited and offered on a first-come first-served basis.

Still have questions?


A $75 non-refundable booking fee and a signed contract are required to secure the date and time. The full balance is due 2 days before the session.

Ensure you arrive prepared for your photo session. Plan to arrive 15 minutes early. If you are more than 5 minutes past your scheduled time, you will need to re-book and will lose your booking deposit.

If, for whatever reason, your image selection is not completed within 7 days, the photographer will, at their sole discretion, select your package amount of photos and edits and the order will be considered complete.

Pet Policy: We currently maintain a pet-free studio for our newborn and allergy-sensitive clients.  However, we love pets and are happy to offer outdoor lifestyle photo sessions where we can work together to re-create a customized Christmas Theme.  Please contact us for additional details.

*Please note that the images below are sample images to give an idea of the setup. Actual setup will differ slightly, as they may be developed with additional props.
