Christmas has to be my favorite holiday of the year hands down! I love the lights, the decorations, the cold, the snow and even the songs (at least for the first few times). I have been wanting to do a Santa themed shoot since I started my business a couple of years ago. I hated seeing pictures of screaming babies and Santa's who looked less than thrilled to be there from family and friends. I knew under the right conditions that I could make it a much more enjoyable session than waiting in line at the mall!
So when Jenni Comer (thats her on the left!) of Jenni & Co posted about wanting to do a special client appreciation event involving Santa I jumped at the chance! After many emails and conversations we finally had the details planned and the date was set! Jenni was offering all of her past clients the opportunity to not only meet Kris Kringle him self but also decorate cookies, make an ornament and even create a living breathing Christmas Wreath.
If there is one thing I have learned from working with Jenni over the past few months is there is nothing she is above doing for her clients. In the few weeks leading up to Christmas and the Client Appreciation event she has had a 12 days of Giveaways of
locally made Jewelry! During the walk back to the cars from our recent family session together I asked her about why she does all this for her clients when there is hardly anyone in her industry doing it and she put it bluntly that without them she wouldn't be doing what she is doing.
Enjoy the magic of Santa in these kids; and even some adults eyes. I hope it brings a little more Christmas spirit to your Monday!
