This year I decided to do my Christmas Mini's way early, as in November 7th. I'd like to think of it as "the early bird gets the worm," but honestly it was all due to the fact that it was the only Saturday morning I could make work and still give my clients time to get Christmas Cards made and sent out. The Duckworths were first up. They live in my neighborhood and their youngest is just a year younger than Jones. You never really believe how fast 15 minutes is until you're doing timed, mini sessions. haha! Takes me back to my Lifetouch days of only 10 minutes in the camera room. The kids were great and plenty of fart jokes were said. We were able to shoot on every wall (although the sun decided to debut at a weird spot so not as much red.) I loved their matching pajamas! It helped add so much fun and Christmas to the whole shoot!
Everytime I do mini sessions I always think I'll blog my favorites from each time slot in one big post, and everytime I'm culling and editing I realize how bad of an idea that is! haha! We'd be here all night looking at all the great pictures we were able to get. I advertise that you get a minimum of 10 images, but the truth is, each of my mini session clients averaged about 40-60! (Keep that in mind the next time I announce my mini sessions!) Without further ado, here are my favorites from the Duckworths!
