Family Photographer Columbus Ohio // Portraits by Carmen // Santa Mini Sessions
Pictures with Santa are something every Mom wants as a keepsake through the years. Nothing is more magical than those early years when they still believe in Santa. Sometimes that magic moment turns into a traumatizing event when a child is forced to wait in line and then is hurriedly plopped down in a stranger’s lap! That’s why I decided to create a magical Christmas mini session so you and your family can have a relaxing photo shoot with the one and only Santa Claus all to themselves! Santa is all real – the beard, the belly and everything- which is less frightening to children. Hot cocoa and marshmallows help lighten the mood a little too. The vintage Christmas setting make for a photo shoot you may want to display year round. Your children will leave with magical Christmas memories and you’ll have beautiful photos to remember it by.
This little guy wasn’t so sure about Santa at first but he was happy about the yummy candy canes! I let him enjoy the sweet treats for a while and got some great shots with Santa in the background. Eventually he warmed up to Santa and as you can see by the smile on his face he had a great time!
These darling sisters couldn’t stop smiling during their photo shoot, especially after Santa showed them their own names in his nice book. They couldn’t believe it!
Santa snuck up on this trio while they were drinking their hot cocoa! What a great moment for them! All three made the nice book this year too. It was candy canes and celebrating for everyone after that and I had a great time capturing those happy, smiling faces.
