Wow its been a busy past couple of months. Sorry I haven’t posted a session preview since October! Fall is a very busy time around the studio. Lots of babies being born, families updating their family portraits. We’ve been getting Christmas cards and other Holiday orders in. This time of year we have lots of themed Mini Sessions for the little ones in the fall. Which I’m backed up posting those as well. BUT… if you’re on Facebook, we do have two pages there that we update with sneak peeks throughout the week. Maybe in 2019 I will get more Blog posts up throughout the month 🙂
I wanted to share some of our adorable Mini Sessions we have had lately… I really want to share some of Miss Charlotte’s Santa Mini. She was super shy when she had her first session with me last winter, and has slowly opened up since then. She wasn’t too sure about Santa Claus, but I told her she could watch me photograph another little girl before her, so she could check him out and see how brave the other little girl was.
She thought that was a good idea, and had some time to check him out and fill up on Santa cookies. There were a couple of tears, but Santa eased her fears and gave her a yummy candy cane. After that she was all smiles and wanted to tell Santa all about her Christmas Wish List and lots of fun stories. She was super happy about sitting on his lap and reading him a Christmas story. Charlotte even brought along her brand new glasses! She is just super adorable!
This was our first year offering Santa Mini Sessions, and we can’t wait until next year! It’s so nice to schedule portraits with Santa on a date and time that works best for you. No need to stand in line for hours at a Mall and get rushed through a line for a single portrait. Little ones aren’t too sure about Santa at certain ages, and usually get upset when they are hurried to get a picture. I don’t want you to feel rushed or have your little one in and out.
We like the little ones to come into our Studio and visit with Santa to see that he’s a cool guy. There’s plenty of time to talk with him, give wish lists, read a story w and get extra fun treats. I also take a mix of posed and candid portraits so you can remember the magic for years to come. Siblings and Parents are more than welcome to join in the fun. We also offer custom Holiday Cards with your favorite portraits too! If you would like to join our list for next year’s Santa Mini Session, we will contact you when those are open for booking. Mini Sessions sell out weeks in advance, so getting on our list insures you are able to grab your preferred date and time before we are sold out.
Just a couple of my favorite portraits from this sweet little girl’s session.
