Christmas Mini Sessions 2018 at Nic Bisseker Photography Dormans Park | East Grinstead | Tunbridge Wells | Edenbridge

•••••12 SPOTS ONLY•••••

Are you looking to have some gorgeous festive photos of your children taken for Christmas cards and gifts? 

This year I am running my Christmas Mini Sessions again following on from the success of the last two years and lots of happy families.  I organise them in October and November to give us enough time to get them processed and for you then to have time to organise gift and cards if you so wish.

They are lots of fun – what better way to cheer up a dreary November day!

We booked a Christmas mini shoot for our two girls and the youngest was less than cooperative!  Nic was so patient and understanding and didn’t give up until she had taken some beautiful pictures of both of our girls.  The results are stunning and will be treasured forever.

My home studio is in the beautiful Dormans Park, West Sussex with plenty of parking.  (RH19 2LT) Dormans Park is fantastically placed at the junction of 3 counties – West Sussex, Surrey and Kent.  For those of you who aren’t quite sure where we are, approximate journey times are set out below (without traffic) :

20-25 minutes from Tunbridge Wells,

10 minutes from East Grinstead;

20-25 minutes from Junction 6 M25.


Only 1 family per session ( up to 3 siblings) – my studio space is extremely limited and sessions are not long enough to achieve a high quality gallery with more than this. If you have more than one family wishing to be photographed together please check for availability for back -to- back spots and book 2 sessions and we will overlap a little bit of the session. 

-As spots are very limited a deposit refund can only be given for a cancellation up until a week before your session. After that a refund can only be given if I am able to fill your spot;

-Please be aware for allergy purposes that we are a pet household;

-A gallery of professionally edited images will be provided within 10 days of the session for you to choose your favourites according to your package type;

-Once chosen, final edits are completed within around 48 hours and digital images ( if applicable) will be transferred via We Transfer or similar for you to download. Any prints (if applicable) will be ordered. These will take a few days and can either be collected from my home studio at a mutually convenient date or sent direct to you by signed for post (subject to a postage and packing cost.)
