Holiday Mini Sessions
I’m excited to announce my annual Holiday Mini Sessions! This year I’m changing things up (just a little) to make sure we’re all safe, distanced, and outside for the holiday mini sessions.
This year I’m offering two different types of Holiday Mini Sessions, one that is kids/babies only and one that is a holiday mini for the whole family.
KIDS & BABIES ONLY SESSION! If you’re looking for holiday photos of JUST your kids, read below…..
On NOV. 21st & 22nd (am only) I will host BABY/KID ONLY MINI SESSIONS on my front porch. In years past I was able to rent out a warm indoor space- but with Covid I think it’s best we adapt and take on the weather so that we can all be safely outside and still get great portraits! Luckily my front porch is covered- so we can shoot rain, snow, or sunshine!
Because I photograph so many of your babies in a given year- this first session is just for them. It’s kids and babies ONLY. There are no family photos offered on these 2 dates, siblings or baby only. I choose Nov. 21st/22nd in hopes that the weather will still be mild enough to get the babies outside for their portraits. You can bring them in their holiday pjs or you can dress them up in holiday inspired outfits! I will have 2 porch set ups. The outdoor porch session will look and feel like an in studio session ( see photos below). The first set will be a cream colored backdrop with paper stars, string lights, and snow! The second set up will be a dark and woodsy theme- with a few props to celebrate the holiday spirit.
Sessions are 15 minutes and this is by design to get the babies/kids in and out of the sets. We will hopefully move quickly enough that there aren’t any major meltdowns. I want their image of holiday photography to stay fun so they’ll happily come back next year!
As I set up the sets, check out my instagram, to see the set ups in real life and I’ll post updated images as I take them.
This session is meant to give you beautiful holiday images for your holiday cards and to spread a little love during a challenging year. The Porch Holiday Mini is 15 min. $200.00 an edited gallery to view, and 3 final digital images. This session, does NOT come with prints.

FAMILY HOLIDAY SESSION! If you’re looking for a mix of family and kid/baby photos, read below…
On Nov. 27th, 28th, & 29th as well as Dec. 5th & 6th (evenings apps only), I will host OUTDOOR FAMILY HOLIDAY MINI SESSIONS. This years theme is: Christmas Tree Farm.This session is fun for the whole family. This session will take place on my front porch and in my driveway where I will be setting up a whole Christmas Tree Farm! Originally I thought we’d simply host these at a tree farm- BUT it feels safer for everyone if I set up my own farm here, where I know you’ll be the only family there.
Sessions will take place between 2-5pm. This is to get the best possible light for your session. The trees will be lit but not decorated. I want the lights to twinkle, and I want your family to stand out in the frame. Bring your own blankets for family snuggles and family pets are welcomed too! I’ll be there to capture every fun moment as we make our way through the trees and onto the porch for the second set up which is a cream backdrop with string lights, paper stars, and snow. Your family will enjoy a fun filled session with loads of holiday spirit and some confetti too!
Wear your holiday PJ’s or your fanciest holiday outfits and come play on our little Xmas tree farm with me. Be sure to match hats and gloves to your outfits!
The OUTDOOR FAMILY MINI SESSION is 20 minutes, $275.00, an edited gallery to view, and 3 final images.

In years past I would offer hot Cocoa to the kids and families as well as doughnuts! This year we’ll try to figure some sort of treat out- but again the safest practices will be enforced and followed. I will be fully masked and gloved for our session together. I will also do my best to keep a safe distance from your family while we’re shooting together.
*As I have photos of the various sets I will update this blog page to show you the set ups!
*Please dress festive and WARM! Match hats and gloves. Put hand warmers in little ones coat pockets!
*Sessions do not come with prints.
*deposits are non-refundable
I look forward to seeing you all this holiday season. I can’t wait to see you all in front of my lens!
