What do you get when you pair a wild, wiggly dog who has been home alone all day with a wild, wiggly child that has been stuck in school all day? You get chaos and a lot of laughter! I think they both had a blast playing in the tall grass at the Alford Greenway!
I have been photographing Ian since he was probably two years old, but this was my first time photographing Trooper. I will say that Ian can be more on the serious side of things at times, but Trooper changes all that! The love this boy has for his dog is something truly special and you can see that joy all over his face!
We still had the Christmas tree set up from our Storybook Santa sessions, so when the Mitchell family wanted portraits of the kids with a holiday theme, we just moved a few things around in the studio and made it work! Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year, so I love displaying holiday images in my home year round. It always reminds me of that cozy time of year when you have time together with family, great food to eat and so much to be thankful for! I am so happy that the Mitchell family will have these images on their walls to also remind them of those feelings!
This was the first year we did a full Storybook Santa experience and I think these might be my favorite sessions of all to photograph!! Watching the innocent joy and wonder in the children’s faces as they interacted with Santa Claus was one of the greatest joys I have experienced as a photographer.
We transformed our Tallahassee studio into Santa’s North Pole workshop and the kids had the best time playing with the big guy in red and then joining our elves for some milk and cookies!
Santa has already promised a return trip to Tallahassee next year, so be sure to sign up for our email newsletter so you can be on the nice list!
Happy birthday to Mr. Finn! This big guy is turning three and we celebrated with a portrait session in the studio!
It took all of about two seconds for Maximus to warm up to me and once he did, watch out! His personality is as big as his mega watt smile! He kept me laughing the whole time!
