hangin out with santa

Standing in lines forever, freezing my booty off… traffic, parking. NO THANKS!!

I can’t even deal with all that stress. So I created these Santa sessions for people like me. People just tryna survive the holiday season without needing a nap and a delicious adult beverage every twenty minutes.

So here it is! The alternative Santa portrait.

Giving kids the time and space to warm up and be themselves is EVERYTHING. Seeing them make wonderful memories with Santa is just the best. He is so kind and patient with them and those whiskers ARE real!!

Making authentic, meaningful pictures of your family is my JAM. Why should Santa pictures be any different? Your family, hanging out with Santa, kids 100% comfortable, being themselves and doing those funny, quirky things that only your child would do… that’s what I aim to make really great photos of.

Yes, we still do traditional portraits. But I also spend time making candid pictures as well. To me, it’s about the STORY. The experience your child has with Santa, each year.

Plus, you get to sit back, relax, enjoy a warm mug of homemade apple cider and snack on the best sugar cookies everrrr (made locally) all while your kids have the best day ever. And by the time you’re done with that delicious cookie, BOOM. You have your holiday card photos taken care of.

So, if you’re anything like me, you’re thinking of what else you can skip this holiday season. Christmas cards, that ugly sweater party with all the small talk, baking, standing in line for hours for 2 minutes with Santa… whatever it is.

If you don’t love it, skip it. Focus on what you really want this holiday season. Time with the ones you love most.

CHEERS!
