2020 Storybook Santa

2020 Storybook Santa

Storybook Santa sessions have easily become my favorite thing to photograph.  Watching the children absolutely light up when they see St. Nick or watching their disbelief when he calls them by name or uses his magic to start the snowglobe… it fills my heart with joy and love.  Knowing these albums will become part of their family history and one day they could even be shared with the next generation really fills me with satisfaction that is hard to describe.

I love all the images we created this year, especially because of the pandemic.  There were so many things we all had to miss out on because of Covid.  I love the thought that even when times were rough, we could still come together in love and share the joy of Christmas.

We are already in the planning stages of the Storybook Santa Sessions for 2021!  If you would like to be on our email newsletter, be sure to join at the bottom of the page!  You can also contact the studio to be on the waiting list and be one of the first to hear when we announce the dates!

We finished off Carolyn Grace’s Watch Me Grow plan with a trip to the park.  I always have to laugh at CG because she is a little firecracker!  She has big opinions and is not afraid to share them!  Her mom and dad are so laid back, but little miss is beyond feisty!  I will say that she wears all her emotions on her face though, so I doubt she will ever be able to lie!

One of the great benefits of photographing a family for years is that I get the chance to really learn their style and taste.  When Tassie first told me she wanted a classical painting of Mia, I knew exactly what she was looking for. 

We spent a morning at Maclay Gardens capturing Mia in different dresses and settings and I absolutely cannot wait for the finished image to come in from the lab!  For this fine art oil painting, we take the original image and paint it digitally, then it is sent off for printing and an artist will accent the digital brush strokes by painting on top of the photograph with actual acrylic paint.  It will be a stunning heirloom portrait hanging in their foyer for years to come!

Storybook Santa 2020

Storybook Santa 2020

What a wild and crazy year 2020 has been!!  Its definitely one we won’t forget, but did you actually make memories you will WANT to remember??

Santa experiences this year have been cancelled in most places and the few that are still having them will have Santa behind plexiglass and he is wearing a plastic face shield… not very magical! 

At Long’s Photography, we are turning our Tallahassee studio into the ultimate North Pole experience AND we are doing it safely!  Santa will be in town November 21, 22, 28 and 29 ONLY!  Those not being photographed must wear facemasks and everyone will have their temperature taken to enter the building.  There are no lines, no waiting, no crowds and the set is cleaned and sanitized between each client.

Each session can accommodate up to six people and your children will get quality one-on-one time with St. Nick!  Santa will write each family a personalized letter that you receive before the session, then Santa will call your children by name when he sees them!  Santa will help them find their names on the “Nice List”, sprinkle some Christmas magic on them, share some Christmas cookies and make memories that they will treasure for a lifetime!

Book your session by November 10th and use code MAGIC to save $50 on your session fee!  The session fee includes the Santa experience only.  We will have you schedule a second appointment the week after the portrait session where you will view the unretouched images to make your purchase decisions.  Storybook Santa sessions have a limited menu available so that we may deliver as many of the products as we can before Christmas!  For more detailed pricing, visit the pricing page of www.LongsPhotography.com

Happy birthday Jennifer!!  She has no idea these portraits happened!  Her sweet husband snuck away with the girls, got their hair done, got wardrobe input from her sisters and brought the sweet girls to see me– all to give her the best birthday present!  YAY!  I am honored and thrilled to be a part of the surprise!  The girls were amazing as always for me and we have SO many sweet beautiful images to show her once the surprise happens!  I can’t wait to wish her a happy birthday in person and help her figure out what she wants to do with the images of these awesome girls!
