Lauren & Andrew


holiday mini session in michigan


Andrew is actually one of my best friends from high school. I actually photographed & blogged their wedding a while back, so if you haven't read that yet you definitely need too! Just click here. I was so excited when Lauren & Andrew actually booked a holiday mini session with me, considering I've known them for a while. They both really wanted photos that showed off the holiday spirit so I was able to bring out some of my holiday props to make that happen! Andrew and Lauren brought along their dog, Teemo, dressed in the same antlers used in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". Teemo was a real star and I am such a big fan when my couples bring along their pups to sessions.


We first started off their session with some photos using a bunch of my holiday props. I brought along a bench and some signs that really helped to tie the holiday feel... the snow on the ground and in the pine trees behind us helped too - LOL. Even though their session was quite short, I didn't want them leaving with only holiday photos just in case they wanted some variation. We moved to a different area of the field and made sure to get a few photos with them surrounded by all of the beautiful greenery. Or as green as you could get in the middle of winter hahaha. Andrew and Lauren are both very giggly and are no strangers to being in front of the camera which makes photographing them that much more fun.


For any of you who are ever interested in mini sessions, here is a little rundown on how they work. You are able to book a 10, 15, 20 or 25 minute package. Each package correlates with how many photos you will receive in your gallery and they are the perfect option for couples looking for a few photos for either save-the-dates or holiday cards but not wanting to splurge for an hour long session! They are also the perfect option for families especially if you find that your kids are restless and can't sit still - hello! Perfect solution.... mini sessions! So if you ever see me advertising for mini's and you fit into one of those categories, don't be afraid to snag up a spot!
