Thank you for booking my
Christmas Minis Treats
How to prepare for your Shoot?
- Please arrive ready dressed and on time, my Eircode is N91V6X0
- Drive to the back you will see the studio cabin.
- The Session Fee balance of €100 is payable at the session. Please have the correct amount with you as we will not have access to a card machine and also want to avoid dealing with change and handling/cross over with money due to covid.
- Your session is 20-30 mins long, if you are late it will cut into your session time.
- If they have any plasters on the foot, thigh, hand etc., please remove them if not needed anymore.
- Please make sure everyone's fingernails are clean! Believe me there is nothing worse in a photo than seeing dirt under fingernails, it stands out like a sore thumb!
- There are no shoes allowed in the studio due to Covid-19 restrictions & sanitary reasons You are welcome to bring a fully clean pair in your bag and put them on inside the studio only.
- Make sure your baby/child has napped and eaten before the shoot, older kids also need to be feed. Please bring a bottle for the baby & drinks for the kids.
- It is perfectly okay to bring bribes to the photoshoot. However please don't mention them until it's really necessary. The session is only 30 min, they don't really need a bribe. Avoid Chocolate!
- Please iron your clothes.
- Please avoid any self tanning products as they will stain babies clothes during the shoot and I am afraid fake tan lines and yellow skin will not be edited.
- No tattoos on the arms and legs of the kids, they are very hard to remove.
- If you or your child wear nail polish , please make sure it looks great or remove it. Please keep in mind that pink or rainbow coloured nail polish is not great for Christmas pictures.
- Make sure all the clothes look great together.
- Smaller girls - make sure they were something underneath the dresses and skirts, to hide the nappy and underwear.
- No ponytails! It can look like no hair from some angles. Curled hair, pigtails or just open hair looks really nice for pictures.
- Outfits - Christmas PJ's are great and will work lovely with the cozy fire scene. Please arrive wearing the PJ's as we will do this scene first, the kids (& parents if you wish) can then change into their outfit for the other scene. If you don't have PJ's you are welcome to bring one second outfit if you wish. *Please avoid pinks/purples/light blue/lime green etc as these colors will not fit well with the set or editing style. I'm also advising that children don't wear character PJs like Peppa pig/minions/spiderman etc.
- For the outdoor scene you are welcome to bring a coat, cardigan, hat, scarf, boots, wooly jumpers, if you wish. It would be great if you could dress the family to coordinate.
- Stick to red, green, navy, black, cream, browns and all traditional Christmas colours.
- I will do everything I can to get your child to interact and also smile at times but sometimes it's impossible, when they simply just don't want to smile, I cannot be responsible for your child not smiling.
- If you have a baby that can not sit up, parents will need to join in the photo to hold baby unless there is an older sibling that can confidently hold the baby up and follow instructions.
Hot Choco Van
This year we have an extra special treat for you all. After you session you are welcome to avail of a complimentary hot chocolate, tea or coffee, along with some sweet treats. Each child will also be gifted a Christmas hot chocolate bomb to take home. I ask that you please wait until after your session to have this so that we don't have any spills on clothes or chocolate fingers! We don't have time for cleaning kids in-between sessions! Please be advised that while this is set in my home garden I ask that you do not let your children onto the trampoline etc as this would be completely at your own risk. I also have to advise that any drinks or food consumed are at your own risk and LM Family Photography take no responsibility for allergies, spills etc
I am so excited for this years sessions and look forward to meeting you all. I would absolutely love if you tagged us in any posts or stories on your social media while enjoying your hot chocos.
