Holiday Photos {mini-session GIVEAWAY!!}

hi1b5273It is that time of year…..time to start planning your holiday photos to share with family and friends! Every year, we take family pictures to include in our holiday card. We have done this every year since the twins were born 11 years ago. I keep one photo album that has only our yearly family holiday cards in it, the kids and I LOVE looking through the different cards each year, it is definitely one of my favorite traditions. This year, we were lucky enough to have Lauren Beglin Photography take our photos for this year’s card!

With the holidays around the corner, Lauren Beglin Photography has created a White Winter Wonderland right here in Arizona! She is offering a Holiday Mini-Session for families in the Valley for only $100! Held November 5th, 6th and 12th this mini-session will feature truly unique white paper trees and marshmallow snow. So fun!

Each 20 minute mini session includes a mix of family and kid photos for a total of 10 hi-res edited images, complete with print release. Spots are limited and session times are booked on a first come, first served basis.

Lauren Beglin is a local photographer that specializes in family, kid, newborn and maternity photography. She prides herself on using only natural light to capture clean, classic and cherished moments. Lauren is a firm believer that photographs are a guarantee of a memory. They’re a moment in time we are able to hold in our hands and treasure forever. Unfortunately, with kids these moments are so precious and yet so fleeting. As a result, she wants nothing more than for all of her clients to remember these special moments in their lives and always have photos that allow them to travel back in time.

Contact Lauren Beglin today to book your session and get the clean and classic photos you’re seeking for your holiday season!

    This request scares me because my husband committed suicide this year at the place of our favorite holiday tradition. SO screw it, this year the babes and I will have a BLAST making cookies (my favorite kid tradition)! Maybe even a REAL tree for the first time for them! New traditions!!!

    We thrive on the array of traditions passed down to us but sadly, we rarely get to share them together since our families live on the other side of the country! This year, it being my moms 70th, both my husbands family and mine are all coming together to finally share these traditions together again! Its going to be a very special holiday! Id love to set up a session with you so to gift them pictures of my 4 kids!

    We love getting ready for the Holidays, our favorite tradition is getting all of our decorations out and setting them up, talking about past holidays and how much fun we had as well as what we look forward to. Baking cookies and wrapping them in special holiday packages for our friends, family and neighbors. Liked on FB and Instagram.

  24. Sara Seeburg September 27, 2016 at 1:42 pm #

    We still have a real tree with actual candles. We put it up on Christmas Eve and when we return from church the kids get ushered in another room. The first time they really see the tree is after dark, with the candles lit and all the presents under it. Their look of awe and wonder is the best part of Christmas.
