Eugene Oregon Family Photographer: Christmas Minis 2019


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! How are everyone’s preparations going? Shopping done, menus planned, list checked twice? Yeah, me neither. But that’s not to say that there hasn’t been some Christmas magic going on at my Eugene, Oregon photography studio! I did my annual Christmas minis in early November and it went so well! I’m super excited to show you a few of the photos from this latest holiday-themed family photography collection. Enjoy!

Christmas minis are super popular and my sessions book up really fast. I typically have a waiting list for these family photography shoots, so this year I decided to add on an extra day to see if I could accommodate more of my clients. I think everyone who wanted a spot was able to get one, so it worked out perfectly! I was able to serve twenty-three wonderful families (including my own girls and adorable niece and nephew)—a new record.

Christmas minis have become one of my favorite traditions as a Eugene, Oregon photographer. I try to change things up every year so that repeat clients can have a new experience. A lot of people use their Christmas mini photos for holiday cards, so I like to do different setups to ensure that there’s plenty of variety from one year to the next. This time around I decided to splurge on a snow machine. Yes, it was spendy, but it was also amazing and I’m so glad I made the investment. I will definitely be using it again in future minis. It was a huge hit with the kids! They got all the fun of playing in soft white snow without any of the cold or wet that usually comes with it. What’s not to love?

I’m also very proud of my truck setup. I really wanted to do an outdoorsy setup in the back of a truck bed, but that’s kind of a challenge to accomplish in a studio. So I put my creativity to work and transformed my bed in the studio to look like the back of a truck. It took a fair bit of time and work, but I planned, executed, and built it all myself, and I think it turned out really well. Looks like people are actually sitting in a truck bed, doesn’t it?

Of course, pictures with Santa are always a really popular option during my Christmas minis. Santa Major came for another visit to the studio and all the kiddos were so excited to see him! This makes year number four that I’ve been able to work with this Santa and he is awesome! He always does such an amazing job and the kids just adore him.

It feels good to have another successful year of beautiful Christmas mini sessions under my belt. We all had a fantastic time and it was so nice to see everyone again. Hope these photos have put you in the Christmas spirit—I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season!
