The Christmas Photographer

The Most Magical Christmas Mini's in Western Australia!

These images are about making those childhood dreams become a reality. Through my lens I can create a winter wonderland on the warmest WA day. Be it a cosy fireplace when its 40C outside, a karri forest turned enchanting winter scene, or a merry kitchen ready to serve up warm gingerbread. Let me take you on a little journey through my festive wonderland…

The Christmas Kitchen

The Ultimate Christmas Mini Experience

Whatever your taste, I have something for you here; traditional, quirky, fun… but I only have one stipulation – you must love Christmas! Or at least your children must because really this is all about them.

These photoshoots are fun and I just snap away while the children play. I really find this is the best way to get those genuine, relaxed smiles that we all love

The Christmas Mini Package

I have kept this so simple. No matter which scene you love, how many people you have in your shoot or which location, there is just one price. And if all you want is digitals, that’s great, but how about I get all your Christmas shopping sorted for you while we’re at it.

Perth and Mandurah Christmas Mini's

I have planned Christmas Mini photoshoot everywhere from Perth SOR to Bunbury! Though you’re most likely to find me in my Wannanup studio, just south of Mandurah. You will be able to select a date close to your location on the booking form below.

Bookings open...

Pet Christmas Pictures

I could never forget our furry family members in the festive season and so have included special Pet Portrait days. If you would like to have your pets included in your family portraits then please book into one of my special pet portrait days. 

Your pet must be good around other animals and children. If you have an animal with high anxiety or who would not feel comfortable meeting other pets on the day then give me a call and we can find a solution for you. You can find all my contact details here.

What pets can you bring?

Well, pretty much anything, just let me know in advance if its slithery!

Warning: all fur-babies may be subject to cuddles by The Photographer. The Photographer will not be held accountable for any pet-napping perpetrated by The Photographer on account of undeniable cuteness.

What to do with your Christmas photos

The first thing most people do is  share their photos to social media – but wait a minute – how about we surprise the ones we love the most with a gorgeous keepsake. I have a selection below of photo products that make both beautiful gifts, and a wonderful momento of this Christmas. 

Mini Folio Box with 5 matted prints - $195

This gorgeous Mini Folio Box holds 8″x6″ mats with 4″x6″ fine art prints. These little keepsakes make the perfect gifts for grandparents.

Large Folio Box with 5 matted prints - $350

The stunning Large Folio Box holds 11″x14″ mats with 8″x10″ fine art prints. These statement pieces protect your festive artwork, while offering many stylish display options. 

Both boxes have space for additional mats so why not make it a yearly tradition and add more images as your children grow up.

**more products coming soon!**


What should we wear?

You really cannot go over the top here! If your style is more relaxed that is ok and I want you to feel comfortable, but if you want to dress up as an elf with glitter pointy shoes you are welcome also. 

My scenes this year are all the traditional red, green and gold base so those colours will really work well for your photo. 

Try and avoid any big logos or graphics, though prints, especially Christmassy prints, will work well. Everything from casual PJ’s to sequinned dresses and bowties work well with these scenes.

When should we arrive?

It is best to arrive 5 minutes before your shoot. Not too much earlier as parking is limited. Please do not be late as this will limit the time you have in front of the camera. No rescheduling or refunds will be given if you are too late to be photographed. A shortened photoshoot may result in fewer than 5 images if we do not have time to shoot more. 

How many people can I bring?

There really is no limit to how many people you can bring. However, if you are doing an extended family shoot consider booking two consecutive shoots. Besides, you will probably want more than 5 images if you involve cousins, friends or several generations. 

What's the cancellation policy?

In order to complete your booking you need to pay the full balance. If you cancel more than 14 days prior to your shoot you get a full refund. Between 7 and 14 days prior to your shoot you get 50% refund, and less than 7 days no refund. This does not affect your rights with the Covid regulations. If you need to reschedule I can do so one time for free, any additional reschedules will require full payment again for the new date. You can contact me here if you have any concerns or want to talk through your options.

What if it rains?

If you have booked an outdoor shoot and we are forecast heavy rain or severe weather we will reschedule. Cloud cover and light rain are not a problem and can actually create better colours and softer light – so don’t worry if it isn’t a glorious day. 

Can I give my Mini Session to someone else?

YES! You absolutely can gift your Mini Session to someone else. Just let me know the name to put on my booking list.

How long before I receive my images?

You can expect to receive your images 14 days after your shoot via your personalised online gallery.

Can I purchase extra images?

Yes absolutely! The trouble with choosing pictures is often the culling part. No one wants to cull a gorgeous smile or cheeky grin. You are able to purchase additional digitals through your online gallery for $35 each.

Can I schedule an extended family or group shoot?

For extended families or friend groups I often recommend booking two consecutive time slots. This means you get more time but also more photos and we can work on several different group combinations.
