Here's everything you need to know


School sessions will be held at Queen Margaret Hall, 53 Blackness Rd, Linlithgow EH49 7JA Linlithgow. 

There is ample parking on site. 

Please arrive on time as sessions are running back-to-back all day. 

Please enter the venue via the main doors where you will be greeted by one of our staff. 


Other than getting them nicely dressed, and wiping their faces clean - please DON'T prepare them. Practised smiles are forced smiles! Rebecca has LOTS of tricks to get your kids to produce a natural, relaxed, having-fun kind of smile. 

Please remember that for these sessions we can only photograph children who are able to sit unaided.  Please get in touch if this is a problem. 

What to wear

Smart and Christmasy! Ideally with a theme that everyone in the family is a part of – either in colour or style or both. Please avoid neon colours and bold typeface/logos. Please also leave the transition glasses at home!

To help with ideas – the background is twinkly Christmas trees against a night sky, with a wood floor and rustic crates for sitting on. 

I also have also created this Pinterest board which might help for inspiration. 

How it will work

On arrival, you will be asked to hand-sanitise, then wait at the end of the hall until it is your turn. Please make sure your children wait with you, as we have a lot of equipment they could damage if they run around. 

When ready, Rebecca will call you into the studio to take the photographs. Rebecca will guide you on how to sit/stand/move and interact to get the absolute best photographs. 

Once finished, you will be taken to another area and offered a complimentary hot chocolate and cookie (the children will then recieve their supprise gift!)

At this point, you'll be shown the photographs on a screen, and asked to choose which package you'd like, and which photograph to use for your Christmas cards. You will make payment for the package, and then be all finished!

Please note, there is no option to re-take photographs once your viewing and ordering session has started.
