It’s getting close to Christmas season, so we’re offering Christmas Mini Sessions again! This year, we have six different dates to choose from, as well as two different backgrounds.
Christmas Mini Sessions will be booked throughout November . As usual, these 20 minute sessions will be done in my Shawnigan Lake studio, and are designed to be festive and fun experience, while also being short and sweet! We are thrilled to offer two background settings this year to add to your variety. Please note, Santa is only be available for select dates this year.
On November 4th and 18th ONLY, there is a little surprise visit from the big guys himself, just before your session wraps up. These are the ONLY dates Santa will be visiting a this year. We want to capture the element of surprise and wonderment when your child sees Santa. Santa will spend a few minutes chatting with your child(ren) but he will not be asking them to sit on his lap. Your child(ren) are the main focus of these portraits, so capturing their expression (whether it’s surprise, joy, or maybe they just aren’t really sure what to think) is what’s most important to us. Santa’s face will not be visible in any of your finished portraits.
About the session:
Your session fee is non-refundable and must be paid at time of booking. We accept most credit cards, electronics money transfers and cash for payment. Your appointment is not secured until payment is received. Once booked, you will receive an email confirming your time and date, as well as some suggestions on how to prepare for your session. Portrait attire can be anything from PJs to your best Christmas outfit. A quick outfit change may be possible if time permits. Please let Kathy know at the beginning of your session if you would like to change. These sessions are geared for children only, family photos will only be taken if space and time allow.
