EMAIL ME at sonja.mcgill@yahoo.com

SUBJECT: 2018 Holiday Minis

and let me know which time slot you are interested in. I will then reply with a confirmation for your time slot and you can pay your deposit with the button below. (I will only hold your time slot when the deposit has been paid)




- each session will be 20 minutes long, not 15 or 10 like in the past years!

- I will be doing the sessions alone... I will miss my partner terribly but it will be just more relaxed if we don't photograph 2 families at the same time!

- we are going to raffle off a FREE full session with me! (I will post more info closer to the date but basically you can buy a raffle ticket for $5 and I will select a winner for a free session. All the money from the raffle will be going towards the City Gospel Mission)




Now let's talk about the set up!

I will have again 3 set ups this year.

FIRST: I will be building a "gift wall" like the one below. This will be a real fun backdrop, with some color and just very unique!

will be on our large white wall (like last years) but instead of a mantle I will be setting up with a white piano and beautiful holiday decorations. Pictures below are just for inspiration. I will be sharing photos from this set up closer to the mini session dates.

a minimalistic set up. a black drop with "snow". Almost like the one below.... This set up is more for kids but I am sure we can add parents to the mix if you want some really fun shots!

I am looking forward seeing all of your beautiful smiles on November 10 & 11!

Rye's in Home One Year Session - Cincinnati Photographer

I can't believe this little girl is already one! Check out her Newborn session HERE

We had to move her one year session from Washington Park indoors due to weather but it turned out to be perfect! And I love the continuity from her Newborn session.

The session basically consisted in Rylan playing and snuggling with her parents and I did my thing... Honestly it doesn't get easier and if you have a home with great natural light I highly recommend a session in your home.

To book your session with me please contact me through my website at www.sonjabphotography.com or email me directly at sonja.mcgill@yahoo.com

I specialize in Newborn and Family photography and my portrait studio is located at 2530 Spring Grove Ave. Cincinnati OH 45214.

I am looking forward hearing from you and customizing your photography session.
