Award winning Kelly Shaw has transformed her studio into a festive themed wonderland ready to welcome families to capture priceless Christmas photographs of their little ones.

She is offering a brand new magical Nutcracker themed setting, Christmas fireplace or peppermint tent theme along with stunning festive outfits to create the perfect festive snaps ideal for Christmas cards, presents for loved ones or simply to hang in your own home.

Kelly said: "Christmas is such a magical time of year for children and, because my festive mini sessions couldn’t go ahead last year at the usual time, I’m making them even more special this year with a Nutcracker theme.

"Children will be able to get into the Christmas spirit by dressing up in their choice of beautiful clothes which I provide and really getting into character. I’m so happy to be able to offer this experience to my clients this year."

Kelly who specialises in newborn photography was eager to get back behind the camera after lockdown put the brakes on her booming business.

She said: "Although I made the most of lockdown by working on a new website, being behind the camera and photographing children is what I do best. I’m so excited!.

"I am delighted at the response this year for the Christmas Mini Sessions."
