You can access the farm from Hurontario street. You will see a parking lot on your left. Please park your car there. Our coordinator will meet you there and escort to the farmhouse. Please call or text our coordinator as soon as you get there, or if you have

any last minute emergencies.

VERY IMPORTANT!


Please arrive AT LEAST 15 minutes earlier than your scheduled time and allow extra time to get to the farm! Please note, you may experience issues with cellular network, so we will send you Wifi password the day before the shoot, in case you are not able to call our coordinator. Kate will be happy to meet you or answer the phone ON THE DAY of the shoot. We are not responsible for your late arrival and we will have to work with the time left. There are next clients right after you, so please arrive early.


We will send you a Waiver that needs to be filled out and sent to Anastasia in advance. We will be sending this form to you shortly. This is the requirement from the farm, and we wanted to do it in advance, so we are not waisting time on this on the day of the shoot.

The rest of the payment is due on the day of the shoot or within 24 hours. There are no extra fees. The rest of the payment can be collected in cash or by email transfer (sent to Anastasia - nastya.chystok@gmail.com). If you need a different type of payment, please reach

out to Anastasia. We can also provide you with an invoice if you need one.

Turnaround

Please expect your photos and the video to be delivered not earlier than 1 week after the shoot.

The turnaround is anywhere between 1 to 2 weeks. Please be patient.

The fun part of this page :)

As you already know, the location for our Christmas sessions is the Alabaster's Acres in Caledon.

  • Outside. We are putting a Christmas tree on the porch of the farmhouse, two couches with blankets, pillows and a bunch of other decorations. There is also an outdoor wooden bar and outdoor wooden chairs. So there's a lot of potential locations for our sessions.
  • Inside. The only thing we can use inside for photos is the bed, which we are going to decorate as well. Be aware that if you are interested in going inside the tent, we will ask you to remove your shoes. And the tent will not be heated inside for safety reasons, so wear warm clothes inside too.

You can see the colour palette below: white; beige; wooden with pops of darker green. We are praying for snow too, for a pop of winter magic :)

Outfits

Try to stick to neutral colours for this shoot, the colour palette provided above is your best guide. Try to avoid clothes with crazy colours, patterns, labels and writing on them. It's ok if you prefer to stay warm and wear coats, but please try to avoid puffy, dark and super colourful coats. Bring some gloves, we might be able to catch some snow :)


Make sure that your outfits complement each other, but are not exactly the same. Cozy is the word when we think about winter sessions. With that in mind, try to incorporate something cozy into your outfits. Flannel, textured sweaters or a scarf with an interesting knit are also a good way to cozy up. Layers are also a good choice and they add variety to an outfit. You can also bring some cute cozy socks to wear on the bed.

SEE YOU SOON!


We are very excited to see you on our Christmas minis this year! We appreciate and send love to each and every one of you! Our goal is to create an amazing experience for you and get you into the Christmas spirit!

If you need help with picking outfits or have any other questions, please contact Anastasia. We will send you a reminder with your confirmed time slot and contact info 24 hours before the shoot.


Thank you for reading this (we hope you made it to the end) and we can't wait to see you!

Max and Anastasia
