Christmas mini sessions

This past Christmas was the first time that I had ever done mini sessions and the experience was unforgettable. I was able to photograph 3 different couples and each one of them were so friendly, fun and ABSOLUTELY in love.

Of course we were in Clarkston, Michigan in the middle of winter so it sure was a bit chilly but that didn't stop us from having an amazing time. These couples had the option of doing a 10 min. to 25 min. session, but who would have ever guessed with how beautiful the photos came out?

It was the first time photographing these couples and in fact, some of them had never had photographs ever taken so we had such a blast! For a little bit it started to snow lightly on us so we used it to our advantage and it was perfect to set the mood. Fun fact though, all of the props that we used I had bought after Christmas the year before in preparation for these minis! We actually had so many props that we didn't even end up using all of them (oops!). I even had my sister come and be my assistant in the cold which made the experience even more fun.

I remember being so cold but smiling throughout the entire time and it truly was such an amazing experience. My Christmas minis fill up so quickly and I can't wait to continue to do them every year moving forward! They are definitely the perfection option for people who are looking for a few photos and a quick in and out session.

Photos By Gayle does more than just take photos of people. Rather, it is capturing moments of LOVE and HAPPINESS. Singing to the skies, dancing in a field, smiles that hurt because they’re so big. There is nothing else I would rather be doing than photographing these unique details that make you and your significant other a couple. If these couples photoshoots puts a spark in you, you know where to click <——— right there!
