Hi all! I’m so incredibly excited about this year’s Christmas Mini Sessions!! I’ll be holding two different types this year. The first one will be Christmas Tree Mini Sessions. These are going to be held at Tuscarora Evergreens Tree Farm off of Groniger Valley Road on November 8th, 14th & 15th. These are for immediate families and children (6 people or less).
The second set of minis are Milk and Cookie Mini Sessions. These will be held indoors at my location in Lewistown. And seriously, pajamas are a MUST for these adorable minis! Children must be able to sit up on their own for these sessions and this is just for the kids (6 children or less).
(Sneak peek of the Milk & Cookies Mini Session – the set up will be slightly different)
This year, booking will be even easier than before. Simply click the link below, select what type of session you are interested in. If you are booking the Christmas Tree Mini Sessions, choose the date you are interested in, then choose the time that works best for you. Fill out your information and on the last page you will input your credit card information. This 50% non-refundable retainer is required to hold your appointment. The remainder of your session fee is due at the time of your session. Check or cash will be accepted the day of your session. Session fee for either session is $130. Both types of mini sessions include 10 images with print release.

Please let me know if you have any questions! I do expect these sessions to book quickly so make sure you grab an appointment while they last!
****Also, just a heads up… If your child has a food allergy, please email me before you book a milk and cookie mini session****
God bless my husband but he is pretty darn clueless when it comes to taking photos…. (to my standard). I’ll have him stand where I’ll be standing for the picture and I’ll get the camera settings perfect… (I’m not a control freak or anything… I SWEAR!) I would say 50% of the time, he comes out with a decent photo. Yaaaaayyyyy!!! The other 50% my daughter is either no longer interested in picture time or my husband focused the camera to the background… or it is just overall not very flattering. I have so many great photos of my husband and daughter but the pictures of Genesis and I are few and far between…
Thankfully I have a photographer friend (If you had photos taken by me in the past, you may have met her!!) who helps me get those FLATTERING photos… and Genesis is actually not a blur from running away!
This is just my funny and longwinded way of saying I’m holding Mommy & Me Minis again this year! And I promise that your children will not be blurs and you will look FANTASTIC!
If you still aren’t convinced you want to have your picture taken, make sure you check out last years blog post here.
And just a few pictures of me and my daughter, Genesis… taken by the awesome Megan Shadle!
And to prove that my husband can take a decent photo… here are two GREAT photos! (I did have to crop these like crazy but they are fantastic!) And prior to posting this, I did show my husband what I wrote about him… his response, “You should post some of my bad pictures so they know you aren’t lying!” lol!
Hope to see you there!!!!
I’m so excited to be doing Christmas Mini Sessions again this year! However, this year we are doing something a bit different. If you bring a donation for the Juniata County Food Pantry, I will give you a free 8×10 (of your choice) from your session. I think it is so important that we come together as a community and help out those in need. I spoke with the director of the Food Pantry and got a list of current needs which you can find below. Obviously, any donation will be accepted but those are the most needed items.
If donating food, please ensure that the item is well within it’s expiration date. If you already have a Christmas session scheduled elsewhere or are just wanting to donate, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there!!!!
