Christmas Studio Minis | Louisa, Va Family and Pet Photographer

Christmas time is HERE!!!


I know it is not Thanksgiving yet, but I am so excited to set up the studio for minis this year.

I will be offering FIVE different backdrops, a choice of TWO per each mini session. Whether you like a rustic feel, twinkling lights, traditional fireplace, or a christmas tree…we have it all. 🙂

Minis this year will begin November 22nd and will end December 13th. Times will be available during the week by appointment only. Investment: Session fee $35 with a minimum $100 print purchase (meaning my normal studio session price BUT you are getting those prints for Christmas and digital negatives….WIN WIN:)

A NEW offer this year is PET CHRISTMAS MINIS…..don’t leave out the fur babies, PET MINIS will be December 6th and each fur baby will get a take home ‘treat.’  Investment for pet minis is: $50 and will include treat bag and digital negatives.

Fall minis | Louisa, Va Family Photographer | Crystal Reyns Photography

I know I say it way too much, but I LOVE Fall. The Va festivals, fall weddings, the beautiful colors, and meeting up with some amazing families….oh and maybe scarfs and tall boots….

This year has been quite the blessing to visit a few locations around Central Virginia for some Fall minis and with some new beautiful faces and some returning beautiful faces!! I loved hearing about some had already put up empty frames on their walls as ‘this’ session was going there……that makes my heart so happy as images ALWAYS look better on the wall than in a thumb drive or disk!! With one more fall mini for Carter’s mountain this week, then we will be ALL SET for Christmas minis that I will be posting about more this week!! 🙂 🙂

Here are a few of my favs from this year:

2015 Christmas Tree Farm Minis


I am so excited to offer these for the THIRD year in a row!!

This year is going to be the best and I know it. When calling yesterday to get permission again the owner first stated, ‘we were wondering when we would hear from you.’ 🙂 This family owned farm is so joy-filled and welcoming, it has been an blessing to be able to come here now for years, and it is the only tree farm I suggest to folks asking where to get a real tree.

To prepare y’all for these mini sessions: Please dress warm as it is a little bit colder at the farm, please come a few minutes early as I will have a few styled setups ready to go, fur babies are welcome as long as they are kept on a leash.
