Personal Brand Merry Mini Session

Merry Mini FAQs

Merry Mini Sessions are a festive departure from normal brand photos. We're focused less on work and more on play: Come dressed in your holiday best - whether that's your coziest knits or your ugliest Christmas sweater - and we'll take a variety of images to reflect the season. Think all the fun activities you only get to do in December: tossing fake snow, holding wrapped gifts, hanging ornaments, sipping hot cocoa, and more. It's the sort of imagery you'll be able to schedule on your feed for the month, freeing up your time to actually enjoy the holidays. And bonus! you'll be able to re-use most of these images every December.

You absolutely can! If you sell product you can bring along a few. I'll also have a basket of props available for use, like Christmas mugs, knitwear, cocoa, wrapped gift boxes, and more. If you simply show up with just yourself there will still be plenty to photograph!

Everyone will receive the same 10 standard stock images in their gallery after the mini sessions. These are images that I photograph on my own that help tell the story of the holidays: cookies, wrapped gifts, decor, etc.

Early bird registrants (before Nov 5th!) will receive 5 custom brand stock images in addition to the 10 standard stock that everyone gets. A custom stock image is one that we make together - you'll get to use your own props and ideas, or feature your hands. They're more personal and customized to your brand, making them unique and cohesive for your feed.

What type of photos can I expect?

Should I bring props?

How are standard stock images different than custom brand stock?
