Happy November! It's officially holiday season and I'm so happy to announce my first annual holiday mini sessions for families, couples, children, and of course pets. The sessions will take place throughout November and early December.

Here is everything you need to know:

Where is the location? I am located in Fort Mill, SC right off 77 (Regent Park area). The location will either be a vibrant peach orchard or a beautiful field. More specific directions will be available once you schedule an appointment. 

What times are the sessions? Time sessions vary from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. We can figure out the perfect time for you and your family's schedule. 

Will you have props? Yes! I have tons of props from presents, snow, confetti, garland, nutcrackers, blankets, banners...  you name it. If you have something specific in mind please feel free to email me:

Will you do family portraits and individual portraits? I will try my best to do both in one session. If you want more time you can always book two sessions. 

How much does one session cost and what does it include? One session fee is $200. It includes 30 minutes of photographing and 5 professionally edited digital images that you will have copy right to do what you please with- like print Christmas cards!

Where should I print my Christmas cards? There are tons of great places I recommend online such as Tiny Prints, Minted, and Artifact Uprising. My advice is the simpler the card the better. 

Where should I order fine art prints from? Me! I have a professional lab where you can order fine art prints, canvas wraps, albums, etc. Please email for the price list: 

How do I sign up? Email your name, phone number, number of family members, and date and time preference. I will call you to confirm the details of your appointment. 

When do we pay? You will pay the session fee the day of your photo session. Cash or check only. Please make cheeks payable to Ariana Clare. 

What should we wear? I suggest going as dressy as you like. I love the 'holiday glam' look as pictured above. Great colors for holiday are red, green, black, white, and other rich colors such as maroon, dark green, and navy.  Chunky knit sweaters in off white, fur jackets, red velvet, suit jackets, scarves, hats, boots... are all great options. Also make sure to layer! Things I suggest not to wear are khaki pants with a white polo shirt,  graphic or typography tee's, light wash jeans, etc. Feel free to email me about wardrobe options: 

If you have any additional questions or would like to chat about your session please feel free to email me at or call me at 703.623.8989.

I look forward to working with you this holiday season!
