Christmas Mini Photoshoots in Edinburgh and Midlothian

Have you ever considered booking a Christmas mini session for your family? They are such a fantastic way to celebrate your little one’s first, second or even 15th Christmas! An affordable, quick, stress free, super fun and very festive 20min session will ensure you have plenty of photographs to choose from for your greeting cards, to print out as a gifts for grandparents or simply share online with family and friends. I, personally, always print and frame our Christmas family portraits and have it displayed throughout the year on the shelf in our dining room and we all love seeing it every single day.

Additional Information:

I’m hoping to make the experience as stress-free as possible for you, so here’s some more information, tips and suggestions to make the day a success for all of us!

Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your session time as you will have to wait which might mean cranky children, please do try to be on time. Unfortunately if you are late, this will be deducted from your session time as the sessions are short and booked back to back.

Mini sessions mean minimal editing – it won’t include removal of snot, dribbles, dirty nails, etc. Please make sure your children are clean and dressed for the start of the session. If you are worried that your child will mess up their outfit on the way, might be a good idea to put a large hoodie over their clothes while you travel.

The setup is classy and simple, I would advice you dress your children in smart, festive clothing, avoid cartoons, bright patterns and logos. There won’t be time during the session for a full outfit change, but we can create more variety for you by adding a hat/headband or a cardigan over a shirt or a dress, please bring this with you.

After your session I will select and lightly edit your images, the final gallery will consist of at least 15 portraits. Approximately 1 week from the session I will send you the link to your password protected online gallery where you will be able to view your images and choose 2 of your favourites to download directly to your device. Your gallery will be live for three days and you will then be able to upgrade your package and choose additional portraits.

The session is suitable for up to 3 siblings at a time. The focus of the session will be on the children, however a couple of family portraits can be included.

Please be sure to pick a time when your children are well rested and full, so they arrive happy and willing.

The session will be fast paced, full of giggles and smiles and we will go through the poses quickly. Time for feeds, outfit or nappy changes will be deducted from your session time which might result in smaller number of final images so please prepare as much as you can in advance.

Bring a couple of toys to get your kid’s attention or a favourite teddy to include in the photos. If your child responds well to snacks, bring something little that can be eaten in one bite, raisins always work well, avoid snack bars and chocolate and pre-open any packs so you can take out one bite at a time, also best leaving the snacks until the very end if nothing else is working (I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve!).
