Hey hey heyyyyyyyyyy, who’s ready to discuss the dirty deets of the Merry Christmas Tree Farm Session?!?
First off, DATE!!!
NOVEMBER 2nd, 2019.
In the event of rain, sessions will be moved to Nov. 17th, same time! Forgot your time??? EMAIL ME ASAP. (email@example.com)
Merry Christmas Tree Farm. 1890 Getwell Rd, Nesbit, MS 38651
Your phone GPS should take you there, no problems. BUT, I made a map for you just in case….
Directions to tree farm:
If you’re heading south on Getwell (blue arrows), the tree farm will be on your left. It kinda sneaks up on you, so just pay attention.
If you are coming from 55, (red arrows) take:
1. Head south on I-55 towards Jackson, MS.
2. Take Pleasant Hill road exit (after Tanger Outlet).
3. Head East on Pleasant Hill and
4. Take a left on Getwell. The tree farm will be on your right!
Here are just a few quick pics taken with my iphone. You will want to park to the right of this little gift shop building in the open field.
Last year, I shot on the other side of the bridge. But thisssss year, I think I’m going to shoot on the front side of the farm. So while we may shoot at the bridge, I don’t think you will need to walk past it to find me there. I’ll keep you posted if anything changes. I recommend getting there about 10 or so minutes early. This will give you time to find it, park, and meet me at our spot. Don’t worry, the farm isn’t that large, so you’ll find me pretty easily. 🙂 If you get lost, call me and we will help you find it! 901-412-4482
There is still time to sign up, so if you are interested in having awesome Christmas family photos, here’s the link to signup times! Offering times 8AM-5:40!
Just a side note. If you are late, it will cut into your session time, so please keep that in mind when you are prepping!
What to bring:
1. For your babies, bring ANYTHING that makes your life easier for these 15/30 minutes. Whether that’s backup outfits in case they get dirty, jackets (it will most likely be in the 50s), a stroller to hold everything, toys, treats for bribing, or snacks in general.
2. Your fur babies! If you want them in your family photos, I WANT to photograph them in your family photos! If you do bring your pets, bring a leash and doggy bags to clean up after them. I also recommend bringing treats for good behavior. 😀 Like I said earlier, I’m a big fan of bribing.
3. Parents/Grandparents. I will photograph AS MUCH AS I CAN in the 15 or 30 minutes we have booked. I know grandparents love having pics with their grandbabies. I’m totally fine with you bringing as many family members as you want. I will shoot whatever I can in the time slot allotted. You just need to tell me priority. I’m here for YOU! 😀
4. Props. I will have a blanket set up, a red wagon, some lights we could play with, ornaments, and a wreath! Obviously, if you have something else in mind, NO PROBLEM. I am here for you, just let me know! We don’t have to use my setup/props at all. The tree farm is a gorgeous place for photos in general, so we can do full family photos, just kids, or both! If you have a cute sign, ornaments, holly, or any Christmas/holiday things you want featured – feel free to bring them! I will have a red and black blanket that can be used to sit on/wrapped around you. I will also have a green and navy plaid picnic blanket to sit on.
What to wear:
Look, I feel you here. Picking out the perfect outfits that are your personalities, flattering on you, cohesive yet not matchy-matchy…it’s HARD. Here’s what I recommend.
Because this is fall/Christmas themed, I would pick: dark greens, reds, browns, maroons, oranges, navy blues, and purples. Christmas colors would be nice too, especially since we are at the Tree farm: Maroons, dark greens, cream, gold, browns.
When choosing clothes, you just want to make sure you all look like you belong together without looking like you all bought the same shirt. (Because we don’t want to wear the same shirt as our husband, our mother, and our kids #amiright…?) So, it helps if you choose a color palette. If you are unsure of some good color palettes, just go to Pinterest and type in “fall color palettes.” Pick one, two, or three main colors (either cool or warm) and then add in neutral colors (cream, grey, navy, brown, black) to fill any gaps. Cool colors would be considered blues, purples, teals, greens. Warm colors are reds, yellows, oranges. Green and purple are transition colors and depend on how warm or cool the tone is.
If you choose one color, I would do different tones of the same color so it’s not too matchy-matchy. I also recommend adding in a bolder color pop somewhere to break it up a bit! Scarves, sweaters, vests, and hats make for great pops of color, and you can always take those off if you want to change it up.
Don’t forget your pup! Bowties, scarves, and leashes can also bring in some color!
Ok!! Hope this helps y’all. I cannot wait for this session! I think 2019 will be the best year yet!!
Let me know if you have questions. And make sure to book your spot today!!
Details on the Cabin Lifestyle session are coming soon!! Hang tight!
