Northfield Family Photographer | Christmas at The Gardens

001Get your holiday photos, fine trees and greens, plus one-of-a-kind gifts during Christmas at The Gardens

OK, it's snowing outside. Aside from the brutal wakeup call that winter is here to stay all of that snow can be a good thing! I know that nothing puts me in the holiday spirit quicker than a fresh blanket of snow. Plus, those dipping temps also mean warming up with a cup of hot cocoa by the fire — who doesn't love that? This year, you're welcome to join us at our hearth during Christmas at The Gardens, Nov. 28 and 29. This Holiday Boutique features fine greens and fresh-cut trees from Switzer's Nursery and Landscaping along with truly unique gifts from area artists, including jewelry designer Heather Lawrenz and garden sculptor Jennifer Wolcott. And while you're shopping for your loved ones why not get your holiday portraits done, too?

I'm excited to once again be offering family mini photo sessions during Christmas at The Gardens. Holiday portraiture is a beautiful way to capture a new stage in your family’s life or to simply share in a tradition with your nearest and dearest. Take the time to commemorate this season with moments that will be treasured for years to come.


Get a feel for what photography with Anthologie is all about. During your 20-minute portrait session, your loved ones will have fun being themselves — playing and laughing while we capture honest portraits of who you are while still saving time for the posed pictures your families crave at this time of year.
