        When To Book Christmas Mini Sessions

        Hampton Roads Holiday Photo Session with a classic 1953 Studebaker was a flying success!! HUGE shout out to everyone who was holiday ready before Thanksgiving!

        When to book your Christmas minis is tough. Usually by the time you’re ready to search it up, its already happened! But whhhy?!

        Let’s reverse engineer:

        • You want to use them on Christmas cards which are best ordered before or just after Thanksgiving. (Hello sales!)
        • I need 2 weeks to edit and return them
        • That puts it at mid November at the lastest
        • If we have multiple dates, that happens the first weekend in November.
        • To get your preferred time slot should you book 4 weeks out at least… and that’s October 1!

        I open Christmas Truck Minis in mid September. I’m praying for two different Saturdays in 2022!

        When should you book Christmas Mini Sessions?

        In October!

        Mini sessions are 15-20 minute sessions

        More time does not equal more value because more time never made anyone cry less, or have more fun! Weather your kids are grown and cooperative, or super young and uncooperative, its perfect for simple updated family photos, cake smash, maternity, high school seniors, milestones, or Christmas card shots!

        Yes! 15 minutes is enough!

        More time is not more value. My mission is to leave you asking, “That’s it?!”

        Fast. Fun. Done.

        Dad is going to be pleased and you’re going to be shocked I got so many happy faces so quickly!

        They happen at pre-determined dates and locations.

        Get on the Waitlist now to get them in your inbox as soon as they’re released! Be sure to drag it to your primary inbox so you don’t miss it!

        Mini sessions happen roughly once a quarter, sometimes more often in the busy seasons.
