Limited Edition Christmas tree farm Sessions are here!

Heirloom Christmas Memories Sessions

Let’s have some family fun at a Raleigh Christmas tree farm! These Christmas tree farm photo sessions are intended to help you savor this fleeting time with your family, capture the joy of the holiday season, and create family heirlooms that you’ll enjoy in your home throughout the year or bring out with your decorations every holiday season.

These limited edition photo sessions will be perfect for you if:

  • You’re looking to take some fun, joy-filled, & festive family photos this holiday season
  • A quick & easy photo session sounds like a great fit for your family, but you still appreciate personal attention from me ahead of time and having guidance with artwork decisions after (Learn more about the Light Creative Experience here!)
  • You love creating family heirlooms! You’d like to decorate your home with fun, natural portraits from the Christmas tree farm & enjoy them year-round or each holiday season.
  • You know that photos make the best gifts, and you’d like me to help save your valuable time & effort while creating beautiful, premium holiday cards and other gifts for family members.

In addition to my typical artwork offerings, you also have the option of ordering a custom holiday ornament with a photo or two from your limited edition Christmas tree farm session!

The creative fee of $115 includes:

Please note: This is a personal, boutique photography experience, and photos are ordered separately after the session as heirloom-quality artwork. We will have a photo reveal & ordering appointment within 2-3 weeks after your session as part of The Light Creative Portrait Experience, when you will see photo proofs and artwork options, and decide what you’d like to order. To give you an idea of potential investment after the creative fee, a set of premium prints starts at $200, Christmas cards start at $250, archival wall art starts at $400, and custom heirloom photo albums start at $1000. Other artwork options are also available! Printed artwork allows you to enjoy these moments forever in your hands & in your home. Digital files are available pending a minimum artwork purchase, and I will share full pricing information upon booking.

“Thank you Kelly for a fantastic experience and amazing product!! 30 seconds before Kelly was going to put our kids in position, I accidentally hit my 7-year-old in the nose with my arm and the tears started flowing. Somehow, Kelly had him in position and laughing like crazy within 2 mins. Amazing! The Christmas cards were unbelievable, the quality was amazing, the ornaments have been a hit, and we just love our photo box! Well worth every penny!”

When & Where

frequently asked questions


Oh no - I'm not available that day!

I get it - life is busy! Thanks for wanting to carve out time for photos anyway; they help us slow down and appreciate the here and now. These sessions are time-sensitive, so if you can make that day work, please do! If not, please contact me to let me know you’re interested, and we’ll see if we can find another time that works.

I really think I might want more time…

Let’s do it! My typical photo sessions include photography up to 1 hour, and that’s perfect for those of you who want to walk around, have more of a variety of backgrounds/environments, and/or give your kids (& yourselves!) some time to adjust to the camera. Contact me to get our conversation started!

Can I get digital files along with the heirloom artwork? 

I believe that my job isn’t done until I’ve provided you with a finished product so that you can quickly and easily enjoy your photos in your home.

Because of this, my primary goal for our experience together is to create beautiful heirloom artwork that you’ll be able to enjoy in your home soon after our session and one day pass on to your kids. Those tangible artwork pieces are what we focus on first! I also know how important it is to be able to use your photos online & share them with friends & family that way, so digital files are included when you reach a certain artwork order amount. We’ll chat about details upon booking, but don’t hesitate to ask for clarification beforehand if you’d like. I want to make sure you can enjoy these moments for years to come.

What COVID precautions are you taking?

I am fully vaccinated, and I’ll be happy to wear a mask if you’d like me to for the duration of the session. I typically stay at least 6 feet away while taking photos, but I may get closer at times, especially for close-ups of kiddos & their awesome smiles! I don’t expect you to wear a mask at any point while we are together.

Any other questions? I'm happy to help! Send me a message so we can chat.
