Christmas Mini Sessions 2017

Posted on 4 Oct, 2017 by Sarah Hart

The Christmas countdown has begun and we are steaming towards 2018! HOW did that happen?!

I must admit that I was a little unsure about whether I could squeeze any Xmas mini photo shoots in this year…. due to extra personal commitments my weekend availability is incredibly limited for the next few years: super proud mummy here, but my son recently managed to gain a place on the Royal Ballet School Junior associate programme on Saturdays and also a place in Ballet Boost, in Twickenham on Sundays – the downside for me is that I now can’t shoot much photography work at weekends – the upside is that I’m already using my trips in to London to start my Christmas shopping!!! But how is your Christmas shopping going?!…..

Hoping I can help!!! Photographs of the grandchildren can solve a whole lot of Christmas gift buying all in one go for grandparents and other hard-to-buy-for relatives.

I’m excited to reveal a new backdrop for the 2017 sessions! A snowy grey backdrop with beautiful paper decoration trees – simple and stunning!

The session fee is required in order to secure a booking and then there are two digital image packages to choose from (please note, all digital images are sent via email for you to download as high resolution jpeg images) meaning you have the freedom to print your images to make photo Christmas gifts or prints as many times as you wish:

If you decide to purchase the Santa Package, you can choose from either of the following Christmas Card designs (these will be emailed as 7×5″ jpeg images for you to print from):

And each package comes with a Facebook Cover timeline:

What to wear


My advise is always to keep outfits as plain and simple as possible – a sparkly party dress or classic shirt and trouser combination will look beautiful and is my personal preference. Or, if you prefer a more casual look, your little ones could wear their Christmas jumpers (accessorise with winter coats and woolly hats) or Christmas pyjamas.  I do have a pair of Santa red knitted shorts for the boys, or a red tutu for the girls, with matching knitted Santa hat, to borrow – suitable for babies aged 6 months – 1 year old.


How to Book


The Mini sessions are only taking place over the following three dates:  Friday 3rd November, Saturday 4th November and Sunday 5th November.  Many current clients have enquired about the Christmas sessions this year and have been patiently waiting for the dates to be released so these slots won’t be available for long. To book a session please email me at and state which date you would like and a preference for a time and I will reply back with a suitable session time on your chosen date.


The Christmas mini sessions are for a maximum of 4 children (my backdrop size limits me to this number per shoot). Babies are welcome but must be able to sit unaided (approximately 6 months+) or sit with a siblings support as the set and props are not suitable for younger babies. Please also note that as the sessions are only 20 min

With only a very small number of sessions available, I’d advise booking as soon as possible.


So excited to welcome back some past clients and meet new ones this year. Looking forward to spreading a little Christmas cheer!

With love
