Christmas Mini Shoots

Beautiful, timeless Christmas themed images of your precious children to treasure forever


"Amazing experience & amazing photographs.

Something I will cherish forever"

Review by Carla Evans

What to expect.....

My Christmas Mini Shoots are fun filled sessions to capture some beautiful Christmas themed images of your child. I'm currently in the pricess of producing the official photos for my 2023 set ups but I'm able to share some sneak peaks of the backdrop in the meantime. 

A 20 minute sessions includes a mini shoot on 2 different Christmas themed backgrounds, both new for 2023!  The first backdrop is a cosy, indoor scene with fireplace, decorations and tree. The second a beautiful snowy forest scene which I can't wait to use! Photos of the backdrops in use will be available very soon. My shoots also include an image on ONE of my amazing digital backdrops too! These digital backdrops make for a truly magical image! 

What's a digital backdrop?

A digital backdrop is a beautiful backdrop that your child is edited onto, my windowsill and snow globe images are examples of my popular digital backdrops. For these photos I photograph your child or children on a plain coloured background and edit them into the photo later. You choose which one of these you'd like your child photographed for on the day.
