FESTIVE MINI STUDIO SESSIONS 2023
What Is A Mini Photo Session?
A mini portrait session differs from a main or "Classic" session mainly because THERE IS NO SESSION FEE, and it is a themed, shorter session! You can get the chance to have a few gorgeous portraits at a lower price point!
A mini-session is a wonderful opportunity to update your portraits for a milestone or special themed shoot. This is ideal for getting a fantastic seasonal gift for family and friends.
How Long Is The Shoot?
The session is 20-35 minutes long, fun, and full of giggles with my funky little chicken friend. The time cannot exceed 35 minutes as we must prepare for the next client, so there will be no time for a second outfit change or background.
Note - If your little one is very reserved or is diagnosed with learning difficulties, it's better to book a more extended session so we have more time to get to know each other. We work with many little ones, but if a child is terrified or in tears, it is better to limit their distress as we don't want to put them off for future photographs. See here for advice for parents preparing kids for photo shoots.
* Newborn from 6 days to 5 weeks. I supply hats, headbands, and blankets.
* 6 to 11-month-old sitters - A coloured, fitted romper that shows those chunky little arms and legs. (We have some outfits.)
* Children & Teens - Plaid dresses, chunky knits, and pyjamas look adorable.

LITTLE SITTERS 6-11 MONTHS
Christmas - I have an adorable group of mini trees, and festively wrapped boxes for 6–11-month sitters to pose with sweet chunky blankets and rugs! As seen in the photographs, we will shoot on a solid, dark wooden background.
BABIES & NEWBORN
Babies that cannot sit unsupported can be photographed lying down on a red or green rug and upright with parental or sibling support. We add festive elements and glitter as well in post-production.
Newborns will be wrapped up as above for a Christmas look. Options are a Santa hat or a simple coloured hat or headband. Props are the little bed or bowl or bucket as pictured.
CHILDREN & TEENAGERS
Glitter And Fun With Props
These are fun, cheeky, novelty images and the option of a gorgeous portrait. We have a gorgeous sledge or little chair for older children. I promise to remove all the spots from teenagers' faces, so they look adorable in their ugly Christmas sweaters. It's a classic! We can have two kiddos in the session.
