Christmas Mini Sessions At My London Photography Studio
A few days ago I opened up the bookings for this year’s Christmas Mini Sessions, and whilst I’m getting into the Christmas spirit I thought I would share some of my favourite Christmas photographs from last year’s sessions.
I always love these Christmas mini session days. I’m a bit of a Christmas nut anyway, but these sessions are particularly special because lots of my clients come back year after year. It’s always wonderful to see how much they have changed and grown. And some of the little ones who first came to the studio as babies are now chatty school children!
When Do Christmas Portrait Sessions Take Place?
Christmas Mini Sessions usually take place on selected dates in October and November, so that my lovely clients have their photographs and Christmas cards in good time to send them out in December.
Each year there will be some weekend and weekday sessions available – the weekends always book up quickly so it’s best to book as early as you can.
On a Christmas mini session day the studio is set up especially for Christmas sessions, and several families come at pre-booked time slots. Each session lasts 15 minutes – perfect for little attention spans – and in that time I take a variety of photographs of that family’s child or children on the Christmas set.
Where are the Christmas Sessions?
All of the Christmas mini sessions take place at my studio, which is on the London / Surrey border and close to Hampton Court.
The studio is warm, comfortable and has everything I need to safely photograph your baby or child and make sure you have a relaxed, comfortable experience.
Most families choose to drive, and there’s free parking outside. The studio is also a short walk from Hampton Court station which is served by direct trains from London Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Wimbledon and Surbiton.
What Should My Children Wear For The Christmas Photo Shoot?
Each year I choose a different theme for the Christmas photo shoots. When a family books their session I send them a session guide with tips for choosing outfits, and for coordinating outfits if they have more than one child.
Last year’s theme was Christmas pyjamas, and as you can see we had lots of gorgeous outfits – from cosy Christmas pyjamas to a lovely reindeer hat!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of my favourite photographs from last year’s Christmas Mini Sessions.
