Every year, starting in the month of October, we offer Christmas Portrait Mini Session for families wanting to have their Family Christmas Photos taken on Christmas Themed Backdrops in the comfort of our studio. For those who have not had a portrait photography session with us, our Christmas Mini Session is based on our Premium Portrait Photography Package. Instead of an hour session, it will be just 25 minutes in duration. Since every photography studio has their own approach when it comes to Christmas Mini Sessions, we would like to share what to expect when you book a Christmas Mini Session with Irierootsini Photography.
To start, you can book your Christmas Mini Session by using our online booking service ⎯ there you will find 3 Christmas Themed Backdrop options which you can choose from (see images below). Since this is only a mini-session, there will be limited dates and time slots available. So, we do suggest that you book your session early before it runs out. Having booked your Christmas Portrait Session, we will contact you to fill out our online pre-portrait photography session questionnaire. The questionnaire will help us determine how to proceed with the portrait photography session and enable us to send you the styled poses selection that will suit you and your loved ones. To have an idea about styled poses, have a look at our past Christmas Mini Session Gallery. Besides the normal group poses, you also have an option to pick couples poses and siblings poses or if an only child, we will send you poses for him/her. You will be required to select 4 to 6 styled poses from the selection which will be submitted days before your photoshoot, so that we can know exactly how the prepare the studio equipment and lights on the day of your shoot.
As mentioned earlier, our Christmas Mini Session only lasts 25 minutes and we do need to ask you to be punctual since there are others booked for that day. Considering the 4 to 6 poses are pre-selected and Christmas fills the air (e.g. Christmas Themed Backdrop, Christmas Props & Decorations, Christmas Music), the 25 minutes will be over before you know it. To ensure that we have captured the images you want, we also have a Live View Monitor that will help you make the necessary adjustments to your pose and facial expression. After the photography session, we will send you contact prints of the images taken from your photography mini-session from which you can make your selection of (4) four Hi-Resolution Images which will be retouched as Final Images that you can share with your loved ones.
And that's basically what you need to know about what to except in our Christmas Mini Session. We hope this blog was helpful in understanding studio portrait photography with Irierootsini Photography. Hope to see you at your next portrait photography session. Cheers.
