I routinely donate to organizations such as St. Jude and Wounded Warrior Project and will do so again this year for my Santa sessions. But, I've also been looking for new ways of "giving back" particularly by using my photography abilities to causes that are important to me, such as Animal Rescue groups and other charitable organizations.
One other thought I had was to reach out to my clients and friends who read this blog and ask for some recommendations for a family that may have gone through a difficult situation recently such as a fire or other tragedy where they lost their valuables and cherished memories. I certainly understand that a photo session may not be first and foremost on their minds, but if I can offer to at least provide a free session (or series) along with images/prints, maybe it would be one less thing for them to worry about...So please, if you know of someone deserving, please contact me directly. I would also make it so that it would be provided as a gift suggestion from both you and me.
Our Vintage Santa sessions at historic Bulloch Hall in Roswell, November 15th-17th are over halfway filled! Normally we don't start filling up until now (mid-September) as many people have a hard time thinking about Santa portraits before Halloween, let alone when the temps have been in the upper 90's! I personally am SOOOOO ready for Fall and some cooler temps!
In my personal opinion, last years Santa sessions were the best yet, and I am so excited for this years sessions! We'll have plenty of creative things to make your portraits incredible, but the more fun idea's you have, the better! Below are links for reserving your session followed by a few fun images from last year.
Below are the links for booking your session. Please note that there is a slightly different link for each day:
