Holiday Family Photos 2020

Holiday Family Photos by Jennifer McNeil

Jennifer is excited to announce this year’s openings for holiday family photos at Peltzer Pines in Brea.  She will be accepting a VERY limited number of clients for October 4th and 27th at the Christmas tree farm for a Limited Edition holiday family photo session.  Sessions are 20 minutes in length, with 20 minutes between sessions to allow for social distancing.

{See below for private sessions on another date of your choosing!}

Have a blast with a family outing to Peltzer Pines and meet Jennifer there for some fantastic (and safe!) family portraits.

The décor and props will be completely different than in past years – with an emphasis on decorations IN the trees, to avoid coming into contact with props.  A few items for seating will be available – all with hard surfaces for easy cleaning between sessions.  To allow for thorough cleaning, sessions will be spaced out more than in previous years.  There will be a waiting area for the next family, to lessen contact with others.

More precautions:

The capacity for sessions is less than 50% of last year, to allow for distancing between families, and for cleaning to completed.  In the 20 minutes between each session, we will clean/disinfect all hard surfaces with clorox wipes, including the camera, chairs, stool, and any other props that the previous family has come into close contact with.  Hands will be thoroughly sanitized before and after each session as well.  Jenn will wear a mask for the duration of the sessions, and asks that all clients age 3 and up wear a mask until their session begins.  The farm is big and we will find a space away from any other visitors on the day of sessions, and create a safe space for you and your family to enjoy the session.

Clients are welcome to bring their own blanket for sitting on the ground as well.

Want Non-Holiday Photos?

Contact Jenn for Maternity, Newborn, or family photos anytime.  Sessions can take place in the studio or on location.  All standard sessions include Jenn’s time and talent to create the images.  We offer heirloom quality artwork and a full service studio experience which means we are with you start to finish for the planning and execution of standard sessions.


Want a private session?  Need Another Date?

Clients have asked for the possibility of an even more socially distanced session, more time, and/or on a date and time of their choosing without any other families before or after, so I’ve decided to offer private sessions at the Pine Tree Farm this year as well.  These sessions are also limited to availability of myself and the Pine Tree Farm, and will include a longer session with all mid-resolution digital images from the gallery for $795.  Contact Jenn for details.
