Ok, I know. I know. I am the wooooorrrssst at blogging! I would much rather be in the studio, with my camera in my hand making beautiful portraits for people. Sitting still long enough to put thought onto paper has never been my strong suit. I have always wanted to write a children’s book based on a story my mother told me when I was little. I just know it would be hugely successful. Do you think I have sat down to write it? Nope.
I do want to share something I just started doing—seasonal mini shoots! I never thought of myself as a “mini” photographer, but when I dipped my toe in this last Christmas I found it fun and oh so rewarding. The little ones loved Santa and it was such an amazing honor to capture these memories.
Santa is a friend of mine from the Bay Area. He was been playing Santa (non professionally) for years. He finally decided to take the plunge, go to Santa school (mmmm’k, that’s really a thing!) and really do it well. He is a natural and so kind and funny. I love him!
I have already asked if he wants to do it again for Christmas 2020…and he does! We expect these to book quickly, so if you want to be added to the list, shoot me a message♥
Hello I saw your beautiful photos while searching for a Christmas mini shoot. Are you having any mini sessions this year? If so I’d like to request the details. Thank you.
