Christmas Mini Photo Sessions

Family Photos at Elizabeth Barns

This year, our Pennsylvania Christmas mini session series is going to be at the most nostalgic, Christmas-spirited spot in Lancaster County! The Barns at Elizabeth Farms! These 20 minute sessions are perfect for short attention spans on cold wintery days, and you can get your Christmas tree AND your family photos all at once! We selected this spot because in all of Lancaster, Lititz, Ephrata, and York, this is the most Christmas-y spot we can find. You're going to love it!

Session location: 262 Hopeland Rd, Lititz, PA 17543

Session fee: $100 (Additional $25 per head if you have more than 6 people in your session.)

The quality of Fern & Fountain's photos are outstanding! Even if you are uncomfortable in front of the camera, Emily has these 'tricks' that she uses to make the photos come out natural/candid. I would recommend her services to anyone! -Celia

Here at Fern & Fountain, we want to eliminate the "awkward" factor from your family photos. Stage fright is real, and we have systems to intentionally eliminate it from your photo sessions. We strategically engage children and adults to help their authentic personality come out and shine through the photos because at the end of the day, year, decade... you want to look back at these photos and remember how you felt. Family photo sessions should be a family adventure and a nostalgic Christmas joy for you and your loved ones. 

We like to hang out with our families, coach you so you look your best, but engage you as human beings- not subjects. We'll joke with you, chat about real life with you, make you feel comfortable and important as a human being. As we work with you, we'll help set you at ease and bring out your personality so your photos aren't just pretty... we want your photos to be memories of what you felt, where you were, the year that 2020 was for you. These photos are landmarks in your life and that's a serious honor.

Here's some more things you need to know:
-Arrive early! If we start late, we will still end at the correct time in order to respect the time slot of the next client. Starting late may affect the number of photos that come from your mini session so starting on time is important.

-You will receive 4 high-resolution photos within 3 business days so you can print them off and mail them out to loved ones before Christmas!. You will be allowed to see and have the option to purchase the rest of the photos from the mini session as well, and the second batch of photos will be coming out 2 weeks after your session.
-6 people per mini session. Each additional person adds an additional $25.
-Social distancing will be practiced, unless by the time this comes around covid-19 has settled out.
-If you're not sure what to wear, here is a blog I wrote to get you started:
-All session reservation fees are nonrefundable but you are able to reschedule if I am given a 7 day notice.
-Send an email to Emily through the contact form on this site if you need to reschedule or have general questions. You can also email:

Perfect and fun! Emily made us laugh and enjoy ourselves and just feel stress free. The poses were relaxed and he captured moments unforgettable! -Serge
