Also everyone that books a Christmas session with me this year is invited to come back Dec 16 for FREE photos with Santa!
Elf on the shelf photos!
If you want a unique twist on your photos - we can turn your shoot into an elf on the shelf photoshoot! Your kids will wear my elf on the shelf costumes and do some really fun poses! This is available with any of the backdrops. If you book a mini this is the only outfit they'll wear. I have outfits for kids 3 months - 12 years old.
Free Santa Photos!
If you book a Christmas session with me this year you'll be invited to come back to my studio on December 16th from 9-11am for FREE photos with Santa! I will choose your best 3 photos and send them in one gallery for the whole day. If you bring a NEW toy to donate, you'll get an extra photo! Toys will be dondated to a local charity "Lily's Toy Box". The Santa and red couch in the photos above will be the same this year, but the backdrop changes every year.
1. Can we do family photos or is it just for the kids?
We can do both family photos and just photos of the kids. Some of the backdrops are smaller so the parents need to sit on the ground or on a bench. This will be shown on the example photos on this page.
2. Is 15 minutes enough time? Can we do an outfit change?
I've found this time is the best for still being able to capture 40+ different adorable photos of your child, but before they start to loose interest in the shoot. I want to make everything as easy and stress free for everyone as possible and when it comes to working with kids that means doing it quickly! With that in mind, only one outfit for the minis. If you book the full session and add a backdrop, you can do a different outfit per backdrop.
3. Can we bring our dog?
Yes, please do!
4. Where are you located?
11221 Richmond Ave 77082
5. How much is the deposit to book?
Half of the session fee is due to book, the other half just needs to be paid by the session date. You can pay ahead of time through a link on the appointment confirmaton page, or I can simply swipe your card at my studio.
