What is Minis Christmas Photoshoot?

November 28, 2022

As they do every year in October and November, photographers prepare their Christmas shoots. These sessions are limited. Only a few days are reserved for them in the calendar, so you need to hurry. Do not wait to book.

These sessions are minis which means they are very short. A session lasts up to 30 minutes. Because the main characters in the photo session are children, the session can’t be longer. After only 15 minutes the children start to get bored and are not interested in the photographer. The fact that the session is short does not mean that you will have few pictures. You can get a lot of shots from such a short child and family session.
During these sessions, the focus is mainly on the baby but you also need to take a moment for family shots. I can’t imagine taking a few shots of the baby and not inviting mum and dad to the shoot. I always encourage my parents at least to take one picture together.

Every year we prepare a different backdrop. As we approach September we plan the first photos to show our idea of Christmas Minis. When the test session is ready we choose the best images to show you what we have prepared in our studio this year. On our website, you can check out photos from earlier years and make sure you have made the right decision by choosing A&M Mazur Photography for your Christmas session. We do not prepare more than 2 arrangements anywhere. Children get bored quickly and do not want to move from background to background. It is often difficult to convince a child to smile in one arrangement, let alone in two or three.

Christmas sessions are organized for a few days only. Due to the magnitude of the preparations for the session, it is not possible to do these shoots every day. Big Christmas trees, huge backgrounds, presents, baubles, and fake snow everywhere…
If you are looking for a photographer to take wonderful Christmas photos of your family, remember not to wait for the last moment, already check the proposals of photographers in September. A&M Mazur photography is holding its first session in October.
We don’t leave it at the end. The photos have to be retouched, the gallery has to be prepared, the photos have to be selected and finally, the Christmas photo gifts have to be ordered. December is a busy month, so the photos and wall art have to be ordered early enough to arrive no later than the beginning of December. As soon as we have them we forward them to you so that you can wrap them and put the presents under the Christmas tree. The most popular products ordered for Christmas sessions are Christmas cards, canvases, and mounted boards. You will find a full range of photographic products in the A&M Mazur Photography shop.
