Christmas Mini Sessions 2020

Who's more than ready for some Christmas joy and magic this year? It's certainly been a tough one, but we've made it this far, and there are surely brighter times ahead. We may have to look for the joy of Christmas is different ways this year, much as we took pleasure in simple at home activities during the long lockdown weeks. It's strange to think that the usual routine of Christmas events, carol services and parties may not happen this year, but I am determined to make Christmas magical for my boys in every way that I can. I think we deserve it!


Each year I always make time (usually when I'm about to pack everything away) to capture my boys in the studio and make personalised Christmas cards for family and friends. Relatives that we don't see regularly always comment on how lovely it is to receive their card and inevitably are amazed at how much they've grown! I think those cards will be even more special this year.


We have 2 different Mini Session events to choose from this year - Winter Wonderland studio sessions and Outdoor Christmas Tree Farm Sessions. They are both gorgeous! Here's all the details about both events.


Please note, these sessions usually sell out to our existing mailing list in less that 24 hours! Priority booking opens 8pm Monday 28th September for mailing list subscribers. Any remaining sessions will be released to the public at 8pm on Tuesday 29th September. To join our mailing list click here.


Winter Wonderland Minis - 7th, 8th & 9th November


Our studio Christmas Mini Sessions this year are inspired by a that very romantic ideal - a white Christmas! With frosted trees and fluffy snow- you'll want to dress little ones in their winter woollies to throw snowballs, ride the vintage sledge and even build a snowman! Your child will experience the excitement of a magical white Christmas. 

Studio Minis are suitable for babies and children from sitting to around 10 years old and we have room for up to 3 siblings at a time. Images from our Christmas sessions are perfect to use to make gifts and cards for all family, so sessions are scheduled early enough in the year for you to have everything ready in plenty of time for Christmas.

- Christmas mini studio session suitable for little ones from sitting to 10 years.

- 20 minute studio session

Covid Safe Measures:

Your safety is always our top priority. A 30 minutes cleaning period is scheduled between each session to ensure that the set is thoroughly cleaned between sessions. The shooting area will be disinfected using a cold fogging machine which effectively disinfects all surfaces and fabrics within a few minutes. Any props which have been handled will also be sanitized by hand between sessions. All clients will be required to complete track and trace information and a Covid Declaration in advance of their session.


Christmas Tree Farm Minis - 14th November


Christmas Tree Farm Sessions are back! Did you know that Salisbury Christmas Trees is a beautiful Christmas tree farm right on our doorstep? If you haven't been there to pick your tree before, I highly recommend it! There is something so festive about the rows of beautiful pine trees, especially on a cold and frosty day.


We'll have fun decorating the branches, taking a walk along through the field and hiding among the trees. These sessions are suitable for the whole family and children of any age, so why not dress up warm and enjoy the festive atmosphere together!

Outdoor sessions are suitable for families and children of any age. Only one household per session please. Images from our Christmas sessions are perfect to use to make gifts and cards for all family, so sessions are scheduled early enough in the year for you to have everything ready in plenty of time for Christmas.

Covid Safe Measures:

Your safety is always our top priority. All sessions are socially distanced and I will wear a mask when required. You will be asked to bring your own picnic blanket to sit on. Any props that are touched such as baubles will be thoroughly sanitised between sessions. All clients will be required to complete track and trace information and a Covid Declaration in advance of their session.
