The weather is getting colder, if you live in the Hart there might even be frost on your car!
Holiday Sessions are upon us and we’re happy to be a part of it for 2021!
This year our set has three choices,
1. A beautiful hedge cove with fairy lights, not distracting on its own it goes beautifully with formal to casual, and even Santa hats, hot chocolate, and fun pets.
2. Backlight, can be photographed to give a very clean silhouette (would be great with Santa hats or candy canes) or as a backlight dreamy look from our regular setup.
3. Our warm green handpainted backdrop, this one is popular in our regular sessions but also pairs beautifully for the holidays. Jen is on the hunt to add long local grasses and cats tails to add texture.
We will also have a few mini trees and other Christmas decor options – We currently only have a Christmas theme as it is the most popular, if you have another faith decorations email Jen, we welcome ALL!

How to Book
We are trying to set up our online store, however, in the meantime, you can simply get in touch with Jen to schedule a time, send payment, and prepay for the products you would like to have.
Yes, we are pet-friendly!
(Scales to fur, cats and dogs – please note, horses do not fit in the studio as much as we may want them to.)
Make sure to take your pet for a pee break outside and keep leashed. Jen has the right to refuse any pet that may seem “unsafe” though she has worked with many many rescues. Recommend a show leash for discreetness in your portraits, and bring their favourite treat and toy. – DO NOT show them it, simply hand it to Jen.
How many people can I bring?
Our mini session is time for one family (and agreeable pet) If you would like to bring extended family, children or pets who need additional time I recommend booking an extension (30 minutes or more ) Or our personalized packages.
Are you wheelchair accessible?
Unfortunately, our studio is not, however, we may have an option become available. Or you can schedule a custom session and we will come to you with some decorations, our lush green wall is too heavy to transport but our green handpainted background can.
To be determined. We really loved offering a get to know Santa in 2019. However, currently, every session is scheduled so no other families will be present during your time in the studio.
At our studio we will not be having a Santa this year, however, if you have a loved one who wants to dress up for your family, they are more than welcome to. ( I recommend booking extra time and making it a gift-giving experience for your loved ones.)
When will I see my photos?
Immediately after your session, you will see straight out of camera photographs, Jen will be able to help with image selection and product ordering at that time. If you would like additional viewing for friends and family to order contact, Jen.
When will I receive my photos?
Delivery strongly depends on the product, whether you choose to have it shipped or pick up. Social media files with no additional retouching will be available that evening. Additional retouches are within 5 days, and products are up to 14 business days.
