Hi loves, and welcome to our holiday mini sessions at The Knox! Since last year’s holiday minis were such a great hit, we’re excited to be back for a second year. Together with my wonderful associate Casey, we’re really looking forward to capturing this time of your life and giving you some amazing memories to look back on.


This year, we plan to create a cozy, intimate holiday setting with both indoor and outdoor options for photographs. Lauren will be on site to greet you (and register your vaccine receipt), and Casey will be the photographer taking your pictures and capturing this time of your life!

Frequently Asked Questions

This is an especially important question to me, and I care a lot about making sure everyone is safe and that we are following government guidelines carefully. In light of this, you must meet one of the 3 criteria to attend:


1. Provide identification (does not need to be photo ID) AND valid proof

that you are fully vaccinated with your last shot more than 14 days before

the event


2. Provide identification (does not need to be photo ID) AND a doctors note

proving you are exempt from getting the vaccine


3. Be under 12 years of age (anyone under 12 years does not need proof of vaccine)

Yes. Lauren will be greeting all attendees and registering each person’s vaccine receipt upon arrival. This is mandatory for everyone attending the mini sessions. If you are exempt from getting the vaccine (and can show proof with a doctor’s note), OR if you are under 12 years of age, you are not required to be vaccinated. We appreciate your understanding of these regulations, as we are all just trying to keep everyone safe, especially during the holidays!

As you can imagine, this is a quick session so it’s super (super) important to be on time! I recommend arriving 5-10 minutes before your session starts (especially if you have kids/babies/pets) to get settled in, fix hair, do up buttons, and get all the little details straightened out before we start shooting. Once your session time starts, we want to maximize every minute so it’s best to be 100% ready to go when that happens.


If you are a couple minutes late to your session, we can do our best to get as many shots in as we have left, but I can’t guarantee you’ll get much variety. If you end up being later than your entire time slot or do not show up to your session, the session will be considered “cancelled” by you and your payment will be kept as it is non-refundable.


I will have other clients booked before and after you, so changing or delaying your time slot on the day of our mini session is not possible.

If you need to cancel, please email me as soon as possible to let me know. Since I have a limited number of mini sessions available, the payment is non-refundable (as it is used to reserve your time slot). 

You can bring up to 6 people for the mini session. 

Absolutely – this is a pet friendly environment! Just give us a heads up if you plan to bring your pet, and we just ask that they stay on their leash throughout the session.

Both options are available – and you can choose whichever you prefer (or you can do both if you’d like)!


The sessions are being hosted at The Knox in Merrickville. It is a beautifully restored old church with gothic windows. The interior will be staged with a minimal holiday decor. If you want, we can also take photos outdoors in the backyard area (with grass and trees / tall grass).

You will receive your photos 1-2 weeks after your session. I will send you an email with a link to an online (password protected) gallery where you can download all of your photos in full resolution. You can even share the link and password with any family and friends who would also like to view/download the photos!
