Jodi Towns Photography – Christmas At Home Mini Sessions

The idea is to make them a bit more unique for each family. We can find a nice spot in your home or other favourite location, you can sit around your own Christmas tree or include pets in your photos. So much more individual and unique!

The cost is $200 ( a bit more than other years) and you will get a 30 minute shoot at your home (or favourite location), 10 digital files and either 15 cards or a 10×8 inch art print.

The other change is that you can pick your date and time! No worries if you can’t make the dates I pick, choose your own. First in, best picks. The only catch is that they must be booked between 29th October and the 27th November.

Contact Jodi here.

Other suggestions for Santa Photos

If you can’t make it to a centre that is setting up Santa photos, perhaps book a photographer for a mini session and bring a Santa to you!

A friend may help out by jumping into a Santa Suit, buy some decorations as props and you can still walk away with family portrait photos with some festive cheer. Check out our Little Black Biz Book here for some fabulous photographers who are holding family portrait sessions pre-Christmas.
