Holiday Mini Sessions


We’ll be having traditional (non-mini) family portrait sessions over the Thanksgiving Weekend.  Information will be going out towards the beginning of November.

It’s time!

Holiday Mini Sessions are November 4 and 5, 2017.

Sessions are either reserved as one 30-minute time slot or two consecutive 30-minute time slots.  The cost of each time slot is $99 + tax.

Each booking includes 10 digital images with print release.

Your digital images will have a print release allowing you to print in any quantity up to size 5×7″.  5×7″ is the perfect size to use for holiday cards and gift giving!  Additional print sizes and products are available. 

This year we’re offering SIX sets, all pint-sized and full of warm holiday spirit!

Sessions are geared towards children.

Babies should be older than 3 months and/or able to sit unsupported or held by an older sibling.  See note about babies below.

While most sets are geared towards young children, Country Fireplace set will accommodate a small family, older children/teens or groups larger than 3 small children.

Want big-kid or traditional family holiday photos instead?  Check out the bottom of this page for other family and older children options.




Choose from List 1 or List 2.  

LIST 1  ($99 +tax) The following sets may be booked with one time slot:

  • ​Hot Cocoa

Wear your outdoor winter attire! Sweaters, vests, boots (maybe not bare feet … brrrrrrr!)
This set is best for two small children, 3 maximum

  • Snowy Woods

Wear your winter attire!  Blues, creams and whites will go best, maybe an accent of red, too!  This set is not complete!  Will be adding a sled, more birch and snowy items.

  • Holiday Bed

Wear your jammies!  This set will fit 3 small children or 2 mid-size ;-)

  • Country Fireplace*  (older children/teens)

This set is not complete!  Will be adding presents to foreground.  This set is large enough to accommodate a small family, older children/teens.  Maximum 4 children/teens.

  • Polar Express

Lantern is included in the set. Wear your jammies and robe!
We have one blue robe and one red robe to lend for this session.

LIST 2. ($198 +tax)

Want to book more than one set or the Santa’s Workshop set?  Go for it!  : )  List 2 requires purchasing two consecutive time slots

  • Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop set requires booking two consecutive time slots at a cost of $198.  This is due to the amount of time required to fit your child with a costume.   One additional set from List 1 will be photographed if time allows.

You will need to complete two separate transaction to book Santa’s Workshop.  Bookings must be consecutive.

  • Up to 3 sets from List 1



These child themed portrait sessions will be held at our 2nd floor Doylestown Borough Studio.   Only these 5 sets will be available for use on these days.

Babies should be able to sit unsupported, by an older sibling and/or older than 3 months.

Babies who are not sitting unsupported will be propped in a sled prop.

Most 3 month old babies do not love tummy time, the holiday bed set is not appropriate for this age group.

In fairness to our “children only” policy for this session, parents will not be permitted to sit in our pint-sized sets when baby is too young.  Parents with children will be photographed in Country Fireplace only.

Digital Images are photographer’s choice, “best of” from the session.   Digital images will have a print release allowing you to print in any quantity up to size 5×7″.  This is a standard allowable size to create your own holiday cards.  Additional prints and products will be available to purchase.  If larger image sizes are required,  please book a Classic Family Portrait Session to be held on an alternate day (details below).

A note about ages and sizes of kiddos:

Maximum 3 small children for Hot Cocoa, Snowy Woods, Holiday Bed, Polar Express.  2 would be best.

Maximum 4 children for Country Fireplace and Santa’s Workshop. 3 would be best.

Country Fireplace set will accommodate a small family,  older children/teens or groups larger than 3 small children.

Santa’s Workshop will accommodate maximum 4 children including younger teens if seated.   Please inquire about costume sizes.

Did you want a family or big-kid portrait instead this holiday season? More sets and options, maybe?

While these children’s sets are SUPER CUTE, we understand that some family members desire a more mature holiday look ;-)

In-studio family holiday photos can be booked for an alternate day and time as a Classic Family Portrait Session.  We have non-holiday, classic backdrops – we’ll also be keeping the Country Fireplace set up until mid-December.  I can be persuaded to pull out the adult Mr and Mrs Santa suits to create a very memorable holiday card this year.  All costumes will be available, we can probably outfit your entire immediate family in Santa and Elf-wear!

Availability is limited and it gets pretty tight as we get closer to the holidays so contact me ASAP to get a weekday or weekend session on the books!


Note that mini session pricing is not available for Classic Family Portrait Sessions.  Our full a la carte menu,  holiday packages and extra picture time are though!  There really is something for everyone : )
