Studio Christmas Xmas Session

Then It’s Christmas!!!!



      Every year, I do Christmas mini sessions for the holiday cards. Some families I get to see only during this time of the year, and some families I get to follow along from birthdays until the holidays and every single one is incredibly special.

      Planning and preparing these sessions are fun to me and I love to do something different every year. One year I did VW bus, then xmas tree farm and this year with the unstable weather, I decided to do in a studio and it turned out the cutest xmas session. I got to play with studio and natural light, giving the mix and options to my clients to decide what they love the most.

      This year was different tho. My mother was here from Brazil to help me out with my sessions and it turned the day and this season even more special this year. We had coffee and Brazilian cheese bread for the families that was waiting for their session and it was so fun!!!


      I took some time trying to find the best studio in a good location for my clients and I end up finding the cutest spot with a mix of break wall and industrial feels with an amazing natural light. Brought all my Christmas details and got some new things to make the space cozy and add some new details from the past years.

      As I do in all my sessions, I offered a styling guide to my clients to help them to plan their session and made a mood board to have a visual inspiration and make even easier to put together the outfits. All my clients surprised me with an amazing taste and followed the instructions so well that the results turned out even better than I was imagining. It complemented so well with the location and I am super excited to share with you all some photos from this special day.

      I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas, fulfilled with love, happiness and with the people you love. I know some of you are far away from your family (like me), but I truly hope you are surrounded by friends and people that is meaningful to you. I truly appreciate you all that help make this year so much more bright and special.

      I have the most amazing clients, friends and family in my life.

      Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season!!!
