This has been our biggest Christmas season yet and my goodness it has not disappointed! From the VW Bus to the Tree Farm to our new boutique studio space in Downtown Kokomo, it has been an incredible month.
I wanted to touch base with everyone and let you know what is open and what is closed as far as mini sessions go! We’ve seen a lot of excitement over these sessions and they aren’t over yet <3 Here’s what’s open and what will be back in time for those Christmas cards.
1.) Christmas PJ Mini sessions are still open for booking.
These are studio mini sessions using our milky white lifestyle bedding setup at the new studio space on Buckeye Street in Downtown Kokomo Indiana. I highly recommend these sessions for little ones because 1) it’s indoors so we are nice and toasty 2) everyone loves being in their jammie jams and 3) we are right next to Oscars Pizza and 3 Amigos which means family fun plus an easy dinner. Win win win.
2. Christmas Couch Studio mini sessions are still open for booking.
This is our second holiday photography studio option with our festive Christmas couch and Charlie Brown styled tree. This session is full of muted tones, a little splash of color, wood elements, and is bound to get you into the mood for Christmas. Also great for kids due to the indoor environment and psssst. If they get bored, they can sneak over to the play area or help themselves to our mini snack bar.
3.) Christmas Tree Farm Mini Sessions are (kind of) open, (kind of) closed.
I LOVE Christmas Tree Farms. Love them. There are few more picturesque spaces for Christmas photography sessions than a tree farm. Each year we use Dulls Tree Farm out in Thorntown Indiana for our sessions and they always sell out in record time.
These sessions were hosted on November 21st and are technically over. Dulls Tree Farm closes to photographers once they start their tree cutting season the day after Thanksgiving.
However, we are allowed to follow families to Dulls Tree Farm to preserve memories of them cutting down their actual tree(known as a lifestyle session). There are also a few local tree farms that are still open to photographers for “posed” portrait sessions and I am still offering full size sessions for booking at these locations.
4.) Christmas VW Bus Mini Sessions are closed.
So sad right? We got to meet “Helen” this year, a gorgeous mint condition red and white VW Bus that we special rented just for our Clients. We rent a bus each year for Christmas minis and hope to see Helen again in 2021.
5.) Ode to the 70s Ugly Christmas Minis are open.
The actual worst and best thing I’ve ever created, hands down. This was started for some light hearted fun and ended up turning into our first ever photography charity event “Deck Their Halls”. We opened up these session to raise funds to sponsor a family for Christmas and to literally “Deck Their Halls” with Christmas decor, dinner, and gifts. We maxed out our session load within 6 hours and booked 24 session time slots, from which the proceeds will be 100% donated to a family in need for Christmas. These are actually taking place this coming weekend, so excited!
The charity event is full, however, these are still open upon special request and are available for booking throughout the month of December. You’ll definitely be on top of your Christmas card game with these bad boys.
And there you have it! What’s opened and what’s closed. If you’d like to book one of the open sessions, let’s talk! You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the contact form here. Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
