My outdoor Christmas mini sessions always take place in early November. So although there will be a Christmas scene set up it is also an opportunity to get some lovely autumn images too.
When choosing what to wear many clients like to bring two options, normally an autumn outfit and maybe a red cardigan or Christmas jumper just to use for the "christmassy" shoots. I normally have a range of Christmas hats in different sizes to fit anyone who is willing to wear one!
Ideally clothes for autumn shoots should be plain, with no large logos or characters and in complimentary autumn colours. For examples on colour and outfit ideas you can check out this autumn pintrest board with lots of colour ideas and inspiration for you.
In the event of bad weather the photo sessions will be moved to a different date. Normally one week later. If I am concerned about the weather I will notify you in the morning of the session with a view to confirm cancellation 1-2 hours before the shoot. With unpredictable British weather I generally only cancel in heavy rain or very severe winds.
Please arrive promptly to your photo session. There is only a 10 minute gap between each session and if you arrive late you may lose time in your session.
After your photo session your photos will be edited within the communicated timescale (normally two weeks), they will then be uploaded into an online password protected gallery for you to select your package of either 5 or 10 digital images which will be sent to you as un-watermarked full resolution files via online transfer. Extra digital images, prints and other products are also available to order from the online gallery.
I will normally bring sweets / chocolates for the children at the end of the session as a little thank you (or bribe!) So if you wish your child not to have any of these items or if your child has allergies please let me know.
I truly hope you enjoy your Autumn / Christmas mini session with Michelle Cordner photography. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
