Seasonal Mini Photo Sessions by Joma

Seasonal Mini Photo Sessions by Joma Studios Creative Photography includes Fall Minis & Santa’s Secret Workshop.

Every year, we have a few recurring sessions that we call our “mini sessions.” Some of our biggest ones include Fall Minis and Santa’s Secret Workshop… Satellite location.

Fall Minis

Fall minis are a short series of sessions shot in mid-fall when the leaves are at their peak color. A session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes and clients will get a pre-determined number of files or prints, depending on what is in demand that year. We have fun, pose some, and generally capture you and your family in a happy place. It’s painless and a great way to get those Christmas cards out the door early!  REGISTER HERE!

Santa’s Secret Workshop

Santa’s Secret Workshop is our biggest set of mini sessions with about 30 families coming this year! These sessions are reserved way in advance, usually during the summer or early fall, and allow for children to get to spend a half hour with Santa Claus, himself! Invitations and “security badges” are sent from the north pole a few weeks before your session and upon your arrival at his secret satellite location, a security elf will come out and greet you and check everyone’s security clearance. Occasionally, he has to radio into the big guy himself and it’s always fun for the little ones to hear Santa on the walkies! There is a long buffer between families so there is really a sense of special treatment!

Once inside, Santa makes a grand entrance and for the next half hour, the kiddos get to look for their names on Santa’s nice list, eat some milk and cookies, help test out or fix some toys, and just generally hang out with one of the coolest guys they’ll ever meet. It’s fun for the entire family and the memories last a lifetime. We have a few families who have come every year since its inception and look forward to it as soon as the weather starts to turn. If you’re interested in a spot, please email us and we will be sure to contact you when sessions are open for signup. *

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you insured?


What do you shoot with?

Canon 5D Mark III with an arsenal of Canon L Series lenses

Are you more photojournalistic or do you pose everything?

We do a healthy combination of both. We may ask you to go stand in nicer light for a certain segment of getting ready so that the pictures look better, but won’t necessarily pose you. During bridal party formals, we’re more hands on, but for the most part, we just cover what happens.

How do we get our digital files?

Digital files are an add-on available with most any of our sessions. You’ll receive them in both large and small format so that they’re ready to go depending on whether you’re printing or posting! They’ll be light corrected, color corrected, and cropped. Any print products that you order through our studio will also have detailed editing including teeth whitening, eye brightening, full blemish control, soft touch, and vignette, if it’s appropriate.
