Holiday Family Portrait Photography Session | Christina Z Photography - Bradenton, FL

Jane, Trent, + Zoe| Holiday Family Photo Session

Who needs to work out when you can chase a toddler around for an hour begging for a smile?! Haha. This little munckin made me work for it, let me tell you. But after countless ant bites, sweating my tush off, stubbing my toe, and jumping around like a circus clown… I managed to capture some real magic for this family.

Holiday Mini Sessions by Christina Z Photography in Bradenton, FL

This mini session date is for the Bradenton location. If there is enough interest I will open a second date.

There will be 2 sets to choose from. Since the holiday season isn’t in full swing just yet, I don’t have photographs of the specific sets yet. The first set will be available to everyone and will have a classic holiday feel. It will include a Christmas tree, a quilt to sit on, ornaments and snow. The second set will be for young children & tweens only and will have a fun vintage feel. It will include a Christmas tree Stand (as seen in the Lemonade Minis), Christmas trees, a wagon, presents, ornaments, snow, and more… You can find my inspiration on Pinterest or follow me on Instagram to get sneak peeks.

You may use both sets if you wish, only by booking the 30 minute mini session.

Did I mention, every mini session will get an ornament frame to take home! They are being custom made just for YOU!

The Fine Print:

  • Advanced payment is required via PayPal to reserve your mini session.
  • Up to 2 adults and 2 children per mini session. (additional $25 per extra person OR book 2 minis)
  • This event is for families, couples, and children.
  • The children only set is for kids age 6 months and older (babies must be able to sit on their own).
  • Location will be released at least a week in advance.

PS. Refer 2 friends who book a mini (advanced payment paid for) & get yours for FREE!

Our 4th of July | Christina Z Photography – Orlando Florida Photographer

We enjoyed our Independence Day the way most Americans around the country did, backyard barbecue, swimming, snacking, drinking, games, watching fireworks, and playing with sparklers. Long time friends of our spent a few days with us as well. It’s been about 3 years since our families have spent time together due to military deployments. And it will probably be another stretch of time before we get to do it again, due to another military deployment. Since we’ve seen each other last both of our families have grown so it was really fun to now enjoy each others company, this time as parents.

Here are some of my favorites from our few days together.

Marissa & Dalton | PAINT WAR

What’s more fun than throwing some paint at your boyfriend? Taking pictures while doing it! DUH!! I saw this idea going around on Pinterest and just had to try it out.

Lots of paint, giggles, smiles, a big mess & beautiful photos, it’d say that sounds like success! hehehe. Enjoy!

Yes, it’s that time! North Carolina has treated us well, but we are heading back to our roots. My little family is moving back to Florida where we belong! With that being said, I want to remind you that March is the LAST month I am booking sessions in Jacksonville, NC. I am now starting to book sessions for Florida. We are actually going to be living in the Orlando, FL area, but I do plan on booking Bradenton, FL area sessions frequently. So please inquiry.

With all this change, what’s in it for you? Well… good question. ha. I am not going to be holding an Easter Mini Session event, because I am already booking up quickly for regular sessions and my weekends are filling up. But how does a little special sound? I usually only do mini sessions as events, but I’ll make an exception this once.

Advance payment is due at the time of booking.
