How to Prepare for your Christmas Mini Session

So you have booked the Session! Yay!!!! Tick that off the list of things to do! Now the thought of coordinating the family and picking out outfits slipped into your mind and your head is spinning! Don’t worry, thats why I am here to help. Christmas Photo Sessions are meant to be fun, so don’t let yourself get all worked up over the many tiny details. But that being said, here are some little helpful hints to get the most our of your Christmas Mini Session.

How long will the Session last?

Your Christmas Mini Session is 20 minutes in length. If you are late, unfortunately that means you will be cutting into your OWN mini session time. I can not extend sessions due to clients being late. Mini sessions run back to back and this means that I need to finish at our allocated time. Please try to be five minutes early to your session. I suggest GPS-ing the location in advance to time your arrival.


What is the set up like ?

I have gone with a clean simplistic set up for the Christmas Mini's. Nice neutral setting with a gorgeous Christmas wreath. I believe this keeps the focus on the subjects. I do have several Santa hats on hand for you to use.


What should we wear?

I always suggest to my clients to pick out THREE coordinating colors that go well together and one of those colors being a neutral color (P.s. Red looks great in Christmas portraits!) , another fun option is to wear your Christmas Pyjamas!

Feel free to bring along a toy, Santa hats or anything Christmassy. Otherwise, just bring yourselves :)


Where is the Session?

At my home studio at: 28 Tetta street, Augustine Heights

My mobile number is: 0438 776 737

We have a dark fence around our corner property, there may be some parking up the driveway otherwise street parking. There is a doorbell to the left of the garage and entry will be through the side gate.


Who can come to the Session?

Unfortunately due to limited space only clients being photographed can attend the session.


When do I see my photos?

After your session has taken place, it will take me a few days to edit your images and present you with a fully edited gallery. You will receive a email that your gallery is ready! You will be able to choose your favourite 5 photos as part of your package and decide if you would like to purchase any extra images or upgrade to the full session. The gallery will remain open for 48 hours from the time it is sent, to allow you time to choose your photos. 


Have fun!!!

And of course the MOST important part… HAVE FUN! I can not wait to meet you all, some of you I will be seeing again. Photographing Families is my favourite and I can not wait for you to have some amazing Christmas photos. If you need to ask any questions or just talk about your session, feel free to contact me via email .

Happy to help any way that I can!

I look forward to capturing your Christmas memories
