The most wonderful time of the year is near!
I was very excited to do my Christmas mini sessions at Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest in Eustis, FL.
If you live in central FL and haven’t visited them yet, I highly recommend it. Not only can you hop on a hay ride to go choose your own Christmas tree, but they also have some cool attractions and more fun for the family. When I go with my family, we always enjoy the horse and pony rides, the petting farm, making smores on the fire pit, and more.
During professional photographer days, they allow photographers to reserve a spot in the farm for just the photographer and clients. This makes it a very nice experience, in my opinion, because clients get a nice, secluded area to have more of a private session with their photographer, away from crowds.
This year, I did 15 min sessions as well as hourly sessions. I usually don’t do many mini sessions because I like to have more time with my clients, but I was surprised how well the 15 min Christmas tree mini sessions went. I will definitely be scheduling more mini sessions next year.
Here are a few memories created from Heart Shaped Dreams’ Christmas Tree Farm Mini Sessions:
Of course, we had to make it snow here in FL and this little cutie had the most fun:
Thank you to Santa’s farm, to all the beautiful families who came to shoot with me, and to my assistant as well!
The following are some of my individual Christmas sessions that weren’t done at Santa’s farm.
My individual session with the Hax family was one of my favorites. They have the sweetest little girl, Dakota, so I thought it would be cute to use a hot cocoa stand. I brought my pretend snow and pretend snowballs as well to keep the Christmas spirit alive here in FL. I had a blast photographing this beautiful family.

For my individual sessions, I included Christmas Card designs.
Lastly, here’s a little from my in-home Christmas Session with the Foggi Family <3
Happy Holidays everyone!
