Yes, I am a Naples wedding photographer but once per year I offer mini sessions for holiday family photography in Florida. As most of you know, Southwest Florida doesn’t get the winter season. As a result, I find it difficult to get into the holiday spirit when we are surrounded by palm trees, beaches and 80+ degree weather year round. (In all honesty, I’m not complaining about FL, I love it here!). In SWFL we also do not have rustic Christmas tree farms that so many (not so) creative photographers use as a quick and easy holiday backdrop.
I wanted to create a holiday feel, to make up for the lack of winter weather. And this was the perfect year to make due with what I’ve got. After Hurricane Irma took down many of the trees in the Naples FL area, I had an abundance of Australian pine tree limbs– everywhere! Why not recycle and reuse these tree limbs for holidays minis while also helping with cleanup? After much planning and hard work, I was able to create this woodsy pine tree teepee! From the cypress tree flower crowns (also crafted by your truly), the gorgeous long sleeve lace wine colored gown I found here and the beige tan crochet dress here, these holiday mini sessions are my absolute favorite.
This years holiday mini photo sessions are scheduled on November 11th. $200 includes up to 30 minutes of photos, 20 edited digital high res images, and print release. To select your time slot, email firstname.lastname@example.org
