Christmas is one of THE best times to take photos of you and your loved ones – and what better way to do it than with a Christmas mini session?
These short, holiday-themed photo shoots allow families, couples, and friends to get print-worthy pictures to showcase or gift their holiday spirit.
And they’re cheaper than a regular photo session.

You’ll love sharing these special memories with friends and family.

Everyone deserves a professional photo shoot experience; mini sessions make it possible.

Add-Ons and Additional Services (High-Quality Prints or Extra Digital Images)
During your Christmas mini session, you might want to consider additional add-ons.
Popular options include high-quality prints and extra digital images.
High-quality prints: Make fantastic gifts or keepsakes to preserve your memories. You can choose from different sizes and types of paper, such as matte or glossy finishes, to suit your preferences.
Extra digital images: Also a popular add-on to Christmas mini sessions. The photographer may offer several digital images as part of the session package.
