Hey there friends! I can hardly believe it, but it is just about time for holiday photos! Like Christmas season is coming in HOT! It's totally true that 2020 has been a little cray, right? Like, whoah, but let me make holiday photos super duper easy for you this year. You get three sets to choose from, a quick and easy 30 minute session, AND you will get your digital photos and full printing license. Before I go into more detail on those, I really want to share this creative, holiday inspired, photo shoot that I did back in January. I have been DYING to share these images for MONTHS, and I can't wait for you to see them.
This look was definitely inspired by the Australian singer-songwriter, Sia and her recent holiday album and album artwork. It is easily one my most favorite collection of holiday songs. If you haven't heard it, do yourself a favor and give it a listen, you can check it out on her YouTube Channel. My favorite track is probably Snowman, but followed SUPER close by HO HO HO! You will have to let me know what your favorite is.
I have been taking holiday photos for almost 20 years of my life, and no matter how creative I get building sets and coming up with new and fresh ideas, it can get kind of monotonous for me. So I wanted to create something that was completely out of the norm of what I would photograph for most clients for their holiday cards. I wanted to do something a little edgy and totally non traditional.
I always still try to make any of my creative project relevant to my business too. Portraiture is my business, so even in this creative project, I am telling the story of my subject. Just like when I photograph your families.
I knew the perfect model for this session. Her mom and I grew up together and just happens to be the most fabulous hair stylist and makeup artist (Jaqueline Demario Hair and Makeup). I gave her free reign on coming up with the makeup for this look, I told her my vision and she ran with it! I love the look that she came up with, it kind of reminds me of gingerbread and candy canes and my favorite claymation holiday special. SO perfect!
You can see the full gallery from this creative project here.
Let me tell you just a little more about this year's holiday sessions, I know that is why you scrolled all the way to the bottom of this blog! LOL This year's holiday sessions will be AWESOME! One of our sets has a fireplace, a 9 foot Christmas tree, and a pretty window overlooking a winter scene. We have another that sparkles! You won't be disappointed. The third and final set is an oldie, but goodie. We updated the holiday bedtime snuggles set. I can't wait for you to see it! I will be releasing photos of these VERY soon, but you can book your session now! These sessions will take place indoors at our studio. Your session fee ($249.00) includes a 30 minute session and your digital photos (usually about 10-15, usually a few more) with a full printing license. Stay tuned for photos of all of the sets, I will be posting them soon! Don't wait to book your session, I expect evenings and weekends to go FAST! I can't wait to see all of you!
