Christmas Mini’s Benefiting a Family Affected by Harvey

Christmas Mini’s Benefitting a Family Affected by Harvey

When we heard about two of our sweet Cotton families that were affected by Harvey, we wanted to help. So our fall mini sessions are going to benefit one family and now our Christmas minis will help the second family!

For the first time ever these will take place in a studio, which means we don’t have to rely on the weather! Yay! Plus, your little one can get all dolled up in a cute little glam chair like this!

Focus on What Matters

Christmas is always such a busy time of year. We really hope this Christmas mini session gives you and your family a chance to slow down, even if just for 20 minutes, to be with each other and really cherish the season.

Christmas Mini Session Setup:

This will be our darling little set for your Christmas mini, complete with simple, modern Christmas details and a mini Christmas tree tied to a little red tricycle, all styled by the lovely Lindsay with Lean on Me Events.

We photographed Lindsay’s sweet family to test out the set! How cute is little Finn?
