As a Mom of 4, here is what I know about you and holiday photos...

They are stressful...

There I said it... you know I'm right.

Pull together the outfits, gather the kids and Dad, pray that they all stay happy while waiting in a 14 hour long line at the mall (ok thats a little exaggeration) ...

Spend 30 seconds with Santa in all his fake beard and cheap suit glory and rush off.

Then, do it all over again for non-santa holiday photos.

Don't and enjoy it all too...

It's a big task and honestly, it can be rough!

Cool Yule is different.

After YEARS of wrangling my own kids to the mall to see Santa and coming back discouraged, I decided to do something about it. I decided to create a Christmas EXPERIENCE that would blow my wildest dreams out of the water.  

Cool Yule is everything I dreamed a Christmas event should be and more:  

✔️Kids playing and writing letters to the big guy

✔️Family’s getting in the Christmas spirit

✔️Mom and Dad’s face lighting up with joy at the sight of their kids truly believing they just met Santa

✔️Baking cookies with Santa

✔️The whole family enjoying a day full of holiday festivities that are actually FUN

But don’t just take our word for it. Listen to what others have to say about their Cool Yule experience...

"I’ve had tons of experience with Christmas photos at the mall. I worked there for years and I’ve taken my son and nieces to plenty of photo shoots around Christmas. All you do at those places is wait wait wait. By the time it’s your turn the kids are miserable. It was well organized, there were things to keep the kids busy and the staff was great. And the best part is I loved my photos! Overall a great experience."

"We loved it and will be recommending it to everyone we know!"

"It’s such a great experience for my kids and they just LOVE Santa!! From the little art projects to the decor it was just so special!"

"Santa is the best I have ever seen. I loved the event and thank you so much for the experience."

"I love how festive the barn is and how streamlined the process was. The sets are also gorgeous!"

"I look forward to this event every year!"

Stop torturing yourself in mall lines at Christmastime and join the Cool Yule family for a day you’ll always remember.

Set Design Inspiration

Each year the Cool Yule sets are uniquly curated to offer you the best winter and holiday options. Once you book your sessions you will receive more detailed information on the design as it is finalized!

Wish Upon a Star with Santa Santa himself will be with us again. He is like no other, I can promise you this! The set this year will include rustic whites, lots of twinkly lights, and star accents. A classic, rustic, bright Christmas feel.

A Snowy Little Blue Truck Silver Orchids extremely popular Little Blue vintage truck will have a white snowy tree farm vibe this year. Think "real" snow, snowball fights, sleds, and classic, childhood fun.

A Night Before Christmas This was new last year and was also a big success. Bring your kiddos, their Christmas jammies, a favorite bedtime story, and stuffed animal friend. This year the vintage bed will have all white bedding, and red and green accent options.

Winter Wonderland A huge hit for the last 2 years. This year we are moving winter wonderland outdoors! This is a great option for more wintery, less Christmasy photos. Think "real" snow, trees, fur, and twinkly light accents. 

Let me give your family a magical day you can enjoy, too!
