As a Mom of 4, here is what I know about you & celebrating the holidays this year...

This has been a year of ups and downs and lots of unknowns.

It has been a year of adapting and pivoting and doing the best we can.

Don't give up another thing to uncertainty. Come celebrate the season with one another and leave all the worries and unpredictability behind.

Soak up those smiles and giggles and let your kids be kids.

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 exceed all your wildest dreams.

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

🎄Family’s getting in the Christmas spirit

🎄A personal experience with a family owned and operated business

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

🎄Beautiful, high-quality photos that will last a lifetime

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!"

“I love everything about Cool Yule. I couldn't be happier with the pictures of my family and the pictures of Bobby.  We look forward to this event every year!”

“The background options were amazing and I love the way the photos turned out... I have been getting comments from friends near and far on my holiday cards!”

“I loved how organized the event was and that you got a time slot, that way you’re not waiting around with a screaming child. Santa was incredible and the photographer knew exactly how to get my babies' attention. All around a great experience!”

"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.

A Little Blue Tree Farm Truck

Feel like you are delivering holiday goodies from presents to Christmas trees with our signature Little Blue Truck. This year we have made our truck into a tree farm truck with a fully lit tree and strung lights in the bed with presents spilling out. Perfect for a rustic, warm family photo that the kids will love!

Winter Wonderland

A huge hit for the last 3 years. This is the perfect set for your winter inspired pictures. An elegant yet simple white couch is surrounded by flocked pines. Along with a few other touches of whites, silvers and natural elements that create an elevated neutral background.

*LIMITED* A Little Red Tree Farm Truck

NEW this year! Meet the Silver Orchid Little Red Truck! Feel like you are delivering holiday goodies from presents to Christmas trees with our newest vintage truck. The red truck will be transformed into a tree farm truck with a fully lit tree and strung lights in the bed with presents spilling out. Perfect for a rustic, warm family photo that the kids will love!

*LIMITED* Santa at the Little Blue Truck

Capture those same magical moments with Santa from a safe distance this year. Santa will be sat inside the Little Blue Truck listening to Christmas wishes & gathering letters to bring back to the North Pole.

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

Still have questions? Don't worry, I have you covered.
