Christmas Mini Shoots at Secret Smile Photography 2019

It's that time of year again when I have to plan ahead for the Christmas Mini Shoots at Secret Smile Photography. It's already starting to get cooler and the leaves are starting to turn and it might still feel a little early 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 29th and Saturday 30th 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 will be modelled by my long-suffering son who is getting a bit old for this gig now but he's a good sport for his Mum (and he gets paid in time on electronics)


Set 1 will be something snowy. Probably involving snowy trees, a sleigh, a sledge and snowballs. Children will need a nice outfit with a coat over the top, shoes or boots, hat and gloves if you desire.

Set 2 is completely new for 2019 and will be 'Santa's Kitchen' so whatever outfit the children have on will be covered by an apron and chef's hat and children will be able to 'bake' festive gingerbread men to use for the final set. Older children can stand behind the counter, babies can sit on the counter either held by parents or with parents as the 'spotter' (within arm's reach at all times). This example was done with a spotter who was edited out afterwards.

Set 3 is all about the fun, bring festive nightwear for your little ones so they can sit or lay on the rustic Nordic Christmassy bed with their gingerbread cookies and some milk and maybe even get a present from Santa!
