Santa is coming to Galloway NJ! Yes, that’s right! Santa is going to be visiting our studio right here in Galloway, NJ!

If you love all of the little moments, the magic, and the twinkle in your child’s eye when they get to experience the joys of Christmas then this is the session for you! For one day only, the REAL Santa Claus will be visiting the studio on November 20th! This will be extra special, because your little one will be able to have a one on one experience with Santa! Just ask him about the North Pole or his favorite reindeer!

Sessions are 10 minutes long, and are $180 + tax and include 5 digital images of your choice from an online proofing gallery. You will be able to purchase the entire gallery of digitals for an additional payment of $99 after you receive the online proofing gallery. Additionally, other products are available for purchase through the online proofing gallery as well.

This year we decided to do something really fun! We introduced the 5 minute micro mini’s for Christmas! These sessions are an amazing concept! They were very quick and last 5 minutes. You come in ready for the camera and get 5 minutes to be photographed! In that 5 minutes, whatever good images we get are yours; it’s that simple! Call it giving back, call it pure kindness; whatever you want to call it, it makes us happy to give back and give out clients some beautiful and quick images!

These 5 Minute Micro Mini’s for Christmas had Parent’s raving and thanking me for offering these! Some parents said their children don’t have long attention spans. Others said they wanted to be in and out as quickly as possible because of Covid. Then there were even some clients who never had a photo session and wanted to try this out. It’s a little sampling of what I can do in 5 minutes, so imagine what I can do in a regular 1 hour session!

These 5 minute micro mini’s for Christmas were really great! I will definitely be incorporating them in my business model for next year.  If you think this would work for your family, reach out and let me know! I can’t wait to start planning next years and I am SO happy that I was able to make so many people happy during this weird time!

The pictures below are a sampling of what my amazing clients received from their 5 minute micro mini’s for Christmas!

Not sure what to wear for Christmas Portraits? Let me help you with some visual guides! Selecting your outfits can make or break your family portraits! You really want to select outfits that flatter everyone, and can showcase who you really are. Is your family causal and comfortable or is your family upscale and glamorous? You can go in so many different directions. The possibilities are virtually endless and you have the internet to shop at your disposal!

Here is a list of my favorite places to shop:

H&M : Really great selection of clothing for kids and adults. A great way to stay trendy and relevant, and not submit to the “cuteness” of boy clothes you will find in other chain stores. Also, convenient, and you can find GREAT deals here!
Janie & Jack : On the more expensive side, but the quality alone is worth it! They have a very distinct style that will not disappoint!
Zara : High fashion kids clothes (and adults too!) If you want to stand out, this is it!
Boden : Really beautiful clothing options for the whole family! High quality pieces, velvet, tulle, sequins, blazers, shoes, etc.
ModCloth: An amazing resource for women both regular and plus sized, with an amazing assortment of different and unique styles!
Shein : Stay in style with the amazing options at Shein, for men, women and children!
Neiman Marcus : Always a solid choice for a classic look for every member of your family.
Ted Baker : High end designs, beautifully crafted, and gorgeous additions to your closet that will last the test of time!
ASOS : For men and women, the clothing you will find here are highly stylish and perfect for that wow factor!

Although these are just my suggestions for what to wear for Christmas Portraits…

You should take some time to really think about colors, patterns, styles and textures to create your own look for your family. You will really have a good time searching the internet for just the right pieces, and then it’s time to shop! Or, you can look in your closet and try to find different things you have purchased throughout the years, to make something work! It’s a really fun challenge and you will feel so much more proud that you’ve styled your family on your own! I’d say that will earn some serious bragging rights!

Take a look at the board below and see how I styled them. You will have a much better idea on what to wear for Christmas Portraits!

What to Wear for Christmas Portraits?

Fall family sessions are my favorite.

The weather starts to change, somehow we get all of this energy to rake the lawn, pops of color and comfy flannels call our names and FORCE us to put them on! SOCKS! Who doesn’t love socks, and hoodies, and those super comfy, fuzzy boots… yes you know the ones, the ones that you can stick your toes inside and wear as slippers. Watching movies with ALL of the blankets, and waking up in the morning and making a big cup of hot coffee!

Yes, autumn is here, and it’s time for Fall family sessions. Because, why not? Your children are older, they’re so cute and of course you want to dress them up in the most adorable fall attire you can find. These images make beautiful wall pieces, but most importantly… this is a tradition!

These special sessions are something to look forward to! You’ve made it through the summer, your kids are in a new grade at school! They’re entering a new chapter of their lives and you want to document this. It’s special, and you’re creating and documenting these memories that they will love looking back on as adults. Then they can carry on the same tradition with their own children. Be proud of that, you did that!

Bokeh Love has been photographing Fall family sessions for over 10 years. Whether it’s a mini session or a full session dedicated to capturing those natural smiles and giggles, you’ll be happy you made this investment!
