Christmas Mini Sessions

Christmas mini photoshoots are back! Children of any age are welcome to my home based studio in Leigh on Sea, Essex, or if preferred a location shoot can be arranged!

What's included?

30 minute session | 3 digital images | £59

(any additional images are available to purchase for £15 each, no obligation)

As every year, there are 3 themes on offer (plus a bonus ;)). I use real props and really simple setting, which can also be modified to your liking. I have different wooden toys we can add to the scene or just leave it as it is.

Theme 1: Blanket (sitting or laying or both), perfect for sibling shots! With or without hats, add fav teddies etc. Variety of images, together and individual.
This set up works well with smart or casual outfits in traditional Christmas colours or white but also Christmas PJ’S would be cute

Theme 2: Little Bakers - available for upto 2 children as the set is not huge. (Please note: to avoid any allergic reactions, please bring your own milk and gingerbread man or biscuits).
This set up works well with plain clothing, knitted dungarees or apron or PJ's (not provided), little hat in image available to borrow.

Theme 3: Christmas twig - available for upto 3 children. Variety of images, together and individual.
This set up works well with smart or casual outfits in white or creams but also in traditional Christmas colours.

BONUS: VERY LIMITED!!! If Christmas cards are no on your priority list but still would like to capture the Christmas excitement and perhaps Thank you cards are more important, this in-your-home session might be just right for you. Whether it is decorating your tree, playing around it (images are from our last Christmas) or dancing with tinsel, there is magic awaiting to be captured. There is only limited amount of slots for this theme as I can appreciate that most people get christmas tree in December, please message me for availability.

For availability, please get in touch through my contact form here or through my Facebook.

The preset dates are as follows: Oct 23rd, 30th, Nov 9th, 13th, 16th. If those are not suitable, I can accommodate on some weekdays, please contact me. Sessions are run from 10am in 45mins slots between them with last session at 12.15pm

WHO is this for and how many can be included?

Little people on their own, siblings, family, furry best friends if you have one or a special teddy your little one won‘t go without, this photoshoot‘s aim is bring a family together to have some fun. Only family members in one photoshoot!

WHERE:

To make the most of all that autumn will offer us and time I can offer for these mini shoots, the location for these are Belfairs Woods, Leigh Gardens and Prittlebrook lane (which runs paralel to London Road in Westcliff and Leigh area).

I will be running the sessions from Monday 1st October right through to mid December, including half term and days will have allocated location to minimize travel between sessions. Other locations are a possibility too.

What if the forecast is rain? We can simply re-schedule if the weather is bad, or we can decide on the morning of your photoshoot.

What to bring and what to wear?

Weather at this time of year may be unpredictable, some days are warmer than others. I would recommend to dress for the weather, so everyone feels comfortable and warm. It’s really important that the kids feel happy too.

It may be drizzly, so jackets (bodywarmer or raincoat) may be essential! Ground may be wet and muddy so wellies may be the best option (for little or big), woolly jumpers, hats, scarfs are great, chunky knitts and layers look amazing in the autumnal scenery! Choose a colour pallette for everyone and stick to it. The backdrop is beautifully autumnal, so be at one with the colours! Colour palettes of creams/greys/denims/plums/mustards and oranges look amazing! I.e. choose a base colour (say demin and cream) and an ‘accent’ colour, like yellow.

Avoid vivid ‘unnatural’ bright colours that will draw the eye to the colour, rather than the you! Bright pinks will clash with Autumn itself, so def a no-no! Dusky pinks would work better. Try to stay away from bold, eye-catching patterns. Instead, keep it simple. Please avoid tops with large lettering or logos, these will just be a distraction.

Finally, I know black is a very popular colour, but for the scenery in Autumn… it can be a little dull!

A great way to make your photoshoot unique is to bring something personal to you, whether it is your child‘s Teddy, wooden push cart/wagon to carry leaves or conkers, perhaps a pumpkin they can sit on or an umbrella (if it was wet and there are muddy puddles they can jump in).
