It’s that time of Year! Christmas Mini’s!!!

Year 2 coming in hot with Christmas Mini’s now available to book! Last year I had an idea of shooting something fun and different for my clients and we fell in LOVE!!!! I love fall mini sessions but the Christmas mini’s bring a whole new look to your Christmas cards! I made a cute Chatbooks from our family Christmas session last year and y’all I think it’s my favorite one so far!!!

The number one question I get asked it what to wear to this kind of session. It is a 15-20 minute session so it goes by quick. You can do 2 outfits to get your moneys worth and here is what I recommend!! Come in your Christmas pj’s!! If it’s a family shoot (yes dad you all have to match, it’s worth it I promise)…. show up in your Christmas jammies. Bring with you maybe a dressier outfit! I love Christmas dresses on the girls, and white button down and khaki’s on the boys. Below are some examples of what some of my families wore last year!!! All of them looked fantastic!!

The best part…….MILK & COOKIES! YASSSSS! This is super fun for the kiddos and they love it!!!
