The Christmas Sessions


30-minute photo shoot

3 high-resolution digital images

Corresponding social media-sized images

Professional matching prints, up to 12x8”

The Christmas Sessions are 30-minute photo shoots that take place in a beautiful area of coniferous woodland in the Blackdown Hills. They are ideal if you want to update your existing family or pet photographs, or create Christmas cards or gifts for family and friends.


If you’d like snow in your images, I can add it – and if not, I’ll leave it out. Simply let me know your preference at the time of booking.

What is included?

The price of £149 includes:


  • Pre-shoot advice on preparation and styling

  • The photo shoot itself

  • An online gallery of around 10 edited images to choose from

  • Added snow, if required!

  • Your choice of three high-resolution digital images, together with printing rights for personal use

  • Corresponding social media-sized images

  • Matching professional prints, up to 12x8” in size. (These must be the same as your chosen digital images, but can be all of the same image, or one of each)


If you’d like to upgrade to receive your full gallery of digitals and prints, you can do so for an additional £99. 

When and where will the sessions take place?

They will take place on the afternoons of Saturday 31 October and Sunday 1 November, in the Blackdown Hills, Somerset. Directions will be provided upon booking.

Is a mini-session right for me?

Family mini-sessions are suitable for individual households of up to five members, and children who are already comfortable with having their photograph taken. Cuddly toys are also welcome.


If you are booking a pet mini-session, it’s ideal for dogs that respond well to basic sit/stay/lie down commands. The sessions are suitable for a maximum of two dogs from the same household.

What if it rains?

Sometimes, the weather just doesn’t play ball. If the forecast is for heavy rain on the scheduled dates, I will reschedule your shoot to the corresponding day and time on the weekend of 14/15 November.

What about Covid?

All Christmas Sessions will take place outdoors, and I will be shooting with a telephoto lens – which usually requires me to be several metres from my subjects. If you’d like to read my full Covid policy, details are available here.


If it becomes necessary to cancel these sessions to comply with the law or Government guidelines concerning Covid-19, you will receive a full refund of your fee.


If you or anyone involved in your shoot experiences symptoms of Covid, it is very important that you do not come to your session. In this event, I will reschedule your shoot to a date after your period of self-isolation.

How do I book?

Simply fill out the form at the bottom of this page, and select your preferred date. I will then contact you with a time slot and book in your session.


Once you have confirmed that you would like to go ahead, the fee of £149 is payable to secure your booking.


Please note that sessions will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and bookings will only be confirmed once the session fee has been paid.
