christmas mini sessions at secret smile photography, 2017, leeds newborn, baby and children's photographer in west yorkshire

Christmas Mini Shoots at Secret Smile Photography 2018

It's that time of year again when I have to plan ahead for the Christmas Mini Shoots at Secret Smile Photography. It might be warm and sunny outside (how many of you are secretly wanting just a little bit of rain?!) but the sessions sold out fast last year and Christmas is such a busy time at Secret Smile HQ that I couldn't fit everyone in who wanted one.


So the dates for this year are:

Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th November


This gives enough time for the images to be edited and for you to choose your package and for everything to be delivered back to Secret Smile HQ for packaging and to be ready in time for collection before Christmas Eve. Book your Christmas mini session here now.

Here are some of the beautiful images we captured at last year's Christmas Mini Sessions at Secret Smile Photography.

The Christmas Sets

As with previous years the mini shoots are 20 minutes and include 3 setups. The setups will be confirmed nearer the time but these are the setups we used last year to give you a rough idea, all modelled by my long-suffering son who is getting a bit old for this gig now:


Set 1 is the snowy trees set so children can arrive in their smart outfit with coat and boots over the top, maybe a woolly hat, scarf and gloves too? There are props such as the sledge and sleigh that children can sit on as well as the white rocking chair.

Set 2 is the beautiful indoor scene which includes a wonderful fireplace with a golden chair and stunning Christmas tree all in white and gold tones for a truly contemporary and glittery magical set. A smart party outfit for this set is perfect, alternatively a Christmas jumper is just as good!

Set 3 is all about the fun, bring festive nightwear for your little ones so they can sit or lay on the Christmassy bed with a cookie and some milk
