Hey guys! We are so excited to see you this year for our Christmas Sessions 2022. As always, we have two set ups – one more for traditional, cuddly, family photos. You can have your kids an outfit for the first set, and if you want to change them into pajamas for the milk & cookies, you can definitely do that. Some people use the pajamas for the whole session, some people use regular clothes for the whole session. Whatever works best for you!
Please arrive for your session 10-15 minutes early. These sessions are booked back to back, so you need to be READY to go at your session time. Come to the house, get everyone’s shoes & jackets off, outfits finalized, and the kids’ faces wiped one last time upstairs. Then once the clients before you leave, you are more than welcome to come on downstairs into the studio. **We strongly suggest you leave anything you don’t need during the session upstairs in our main entrance.
Have a look at the first set – we are using the bed for everyone to get cuddly!
When choosing outfits for your Christmas session, there are a few big rules we always stick to:
Keep patterns to a minimum (one or two for the whole family)
You want to “go” together but you don’t need to be matchy matchy.
Keep the vibe the same for everyone – casual for everyone, or dressy for everyone.
The first set is white an green with pops of red, with a nature vibe to it. If you’re unsure what to wear, please lay all the clothes on the bed, take a photo, and send it to me (Shauna). Im happy to help!
We will try to get individuals of each child, kids together, family photo if mom and dad are participating, and any other combinations we have time for. I will give you a minute to get the kiddos changed for the milk & cookies photos (if you’re changing them! You def don’t need to).
Again, please be organized so you can change quickly. The quicker you can get the kiddos changed, the more time you’ll have for your photos.
This is the set for photos this year:
And this is a reminder that there is a very big chance your session may end up VERY messy. That’s okay!
After your session, if your 30 minutes are up, we will need you to exit the studio so we can get it ready for our next clients. We will have a space set up for you to clean up your kids, get changed, and get ready to leave. This is why we suggest you leave your jackets, shoes, and anything you don’t need during your session upstairs.
Please email me if you have any questions about outfits, or anything else you are unsure about. Our studio address is in your prep email, but shoot Shauna a message if you need it again.
