Christmas Tree Minis
What to Expect & Session tips:
With us you can expect a fun and relaxed mini-session. We will do some posed group shots, some individual portraits of teenagers or children in the group as well as pictures of any couples (Mom & Dad for example), as well as candid moments. We will get as many shots as we can during your 15 minute mini session. I will have a blanket and a few props to make a cute festive scene. I will also have some ornaments to get photos of the little ones decorating trees.
We will be at Frostee Tree Farm in Perry Hall. The address is: 8926 Cowenton Ave, Perry Hall, MD 21128
Please be sure to not park in the tree farm's parking lot. There is a parking lot across the street that you can park in. We like to be as courteous as possible to the owner of the tree farm and not take up parking for his own customers. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early so that you have time to park, cross the street and make your way down the hill of the farm. There is a path that runs down the middle of the tree far and you will need to walk down hill to find us. We are generally at the bottom of the hill on the right. It will be myself and my husband and we are generally pretty easy to spot but please text me if you can't find us. My number is 443 845 8838. Please be ready for your photos at your designated time. It's a good idea to wipe faces, noses, etc. Sessions run back to back and if you are late, unfortunately, that will cut into your session time. If you are going to be late, let me know so that we can prepare.
If you need ideas on what to wear or how to plan group outfits, I have some great ideas on our Pinterest page. Please feel free to take a look and follow us too! Things to stay away from are neons, character clothing and everyone in all white shirts. Please be sure to check the temperature. Bundling up is a good idea. You can always take coats and gloves off when your session starts. I will also have "hot hands/hand warmers" if anyone needs them to warm up a little bit.
Your session's remaining balance of $75 is due the day of your session. You can pay by cash, PayPal or Venmo. My venmo is @kristina-stotler
The best advice I can offer after doing these mini sessions for several years now is to let your children relax and be themselves. Just let them know that you are heading somewhere to play and that you are going to have a good time. The best photos are the ones where everyone is relaxed and having a good time. We will work around your little ones.
Within a few days of your session, if you wish, I will post one Sneak Peek image. You can share this image, tag people, etc. If you do not want anything posted on social media, that is totally fine. It is optional.
About 5-7 days after your session, you will receive a gallery of proof images. I will add a few edited images in your gallery so that you can get an idea of what a final product will look like but for the most part, the images will be unedited.
More information regarding these galleries will be sent out with your gallery. A total of five edited and retouched, high resolution digital picture files are included with this mini session package.
Additional edited images can be purchased for $25 each. Only the images that you choose are available for you to keep.
Once you make your selections, I will then edit them and send you back a finalized galley within 2-3 weeks. I try to aim for 2 weeks because I know how excited our clients get but sometimes I need that extra week. I will work as fast as I can because I realize everyone is trying to make holiday cards and gifts. You will also receive a personal photo print release so that you can have prints made or you can also purchase prints from us. We use high quality, professional photo labs only available to professional photographers.
If there is anything special you would like me to know, please send me a message.
Anything else you need, please let me know! We look forward to seeing you all!
