A festive tradition – the holiday photo shoot!
We have many families that love having their little ones photographed with us in the run up to the Christmas season. Each year we try and create a unique and creative set up that will make for the perfect holiday photo shoot and this year was no exception.
Julia and the team decided to keep it simple with a beautiful ‘winter wonderland’ back drop and added in the colour with props and styled outfits for the kids (and parents!).
We welcomed back Rebecca and her family, to the studio recently for their own holiday shoot. Based mostly on the children, Julia was able to convince mum and dad to join in for a few as well. The family had previously used Julia & Boggio Studios to shoot both the boys as newborns after a recommendation from a friend. Having recently had their second son, Rebecca and her husband wanted to document their first Christmas as a family of four.
“The whole experience was such fun and relaxed. Julia is so friendly, calm and patient. She was extremely good at putting both our boys (3 years old and 6 months old) at ease, and therefore she was able to shoot their genuine smiles and natural expressions rather than forced grins.”
When asked what Rebecca would say to parents considering booking a holiday photo shoot (or any shoot) with Julia, she replied, “I would definitely recommend it. The whole day out was such a fun experience and something we will all remember for years to come. I think extended family would love it too, so if you can get grandparents, aunts, uncles involved, do it!”

What’s your top parenting advice tip? Someone told me when my first son was born, that when a baby/toddler is going through a “fussy” phase, it will only ever last a maximum of 2 weeks. It never feels like it at the time, but it is so true!
Where’s your favourite family spot in London? We have so many! We love the Horniman Museum in Forest Hill. It is great in both summer and winter. It’s also suitable for children of all ages. Another of our favourites at the moment is Battersea Park. There is always so much going on, and isn’t too big.
