Have you ever dreamed of a Santa experience that didn’t involve waiting in long lines, crying kids, impatient dads, only to get up to Santa and find him not Jolly at all? Well I have. I dreaded the yearly trek to the mall with my kids. Then I hated the photos!
Fast forward to what I like to create each Christmas for my customers – a happy experience. Three years ago I started doing Limited Edition Santa Workshop sessions. I shopped for tools, a workbench, a vintage typewriter, vintage toys…. all keeping in mind what I wanted to build – a magical set for Santa to interact with children for about an hour while I captured the precious faces looking at Santa in awe! Plus who doesn’t love sharing a little milk-n-cookies with Santa?
This year, I ordered new wood backdrops from my favorite company Lemondrop stop
And I love the lodge feel of the set now.
The session follows a storyline written by my friend Jessica Rice and tweaked by me to fit each family album I create. It’s a beautiful story and the album becomes a cherished keepsake.
We start building the set in early October and sessions begin late October. Typically I run a limited number of sessions so if you are considering this for 2015 – you should contact me now to get on my waiting list. Once I open session dates and times I give my current client base first chance at the dates, and anything still open I post on Facebook.
I hope all of you have a wonderful, safe Holiday. We want to thank all of our 2014 customers for making this a great year and for allowing us to capture your memories. I can speak for myself and Vanessa, it is a privilage to serve you and we look forward to seeing all of you again in 2015.
