Styled Christmas Minis

I have had this project in the works for a while now, and I am SO excited to share some details with all of you! I love the idea of supporting and partnering with local businesses, so my Christmas mini sessions (more on those later this week) are going to be a collaborative effort with the Greenhouse Picker Sisters and Simply Judith by Fitzpatrick Designs. Holly and Judy have created two stylized setups for the minis and they are absolutely adorable. We did mock-up sessions this past week and I was thrilled at how they turned out! It also didn't hurt that we had some seriously stylish families to model them.

The first setup was a red, vintage theme from Holly at the Greenhouse Picker Sisters. The detail she included was amazing--complete with a hot chocolate bar and vintage sled! The red radio flyer wagon also was a great prop to do some "kids only" shots. If you're ever in need of a vintage setup for anything from a photo shoot to a themed party, definitely check out their Facebook page since it is exploding with cute props. I can't wait to partner with them again!

The second mock-up was a modern, white setup with gold and silver accents. My initial idea for this look was a minimalist yet slightly glam winter wonderland (is that an oxymoron?). Judy is an amazing graphic designer and has a great eye in general, so she helped me style this second setup. She will also be creating custom holiday cards for clients who book Christmas mini sessions, so stay tuned for that later this week! You can check out her graphic design work and contact her here.

Hope you enjoyed this sneak peak. I'll be sharing more details about the Christmas minis soon!
