I’ve never been on either side of a mini-session.  It sounds a bit like dress-up night on a cruise ship, minus the ship.  They set up a few “studios” off the main dining room and invite people to stop by for photos, which they then put into a gallery, hoping to have them purchased by the subjects, as mementos of the trip.

You could do something similar.  Set up a decorated Christmas tree, put a few wrapped boxes under it.  Place a couple of chairs and/or a couch.  Have people come in and sit.  Take a few photos.  Have them pretend to open some of the presents — keep some extra wrap handy in case kids are too enthusiastic and tear off the wrap.  Take a few more photos.  Done!  Tidy up and you are ready for the next session.
