UPDATE 12/19/12: Due to my awesome broken toe, I’m unable to do this session. :( You can read more about it HERE. It’s very entertaining.
I’m a crazy fan of Christmas… it’s a little ridiculous, actually. But there is such a magic around the season that I can’t help but get swept up in it. In fact, one of the reasons I like Thanksgiving so much is because I know Christmas is next. And I cannot wait to get the lights up and the tree trimmed!
Well the lights are now up, and I’m starting to think about this coming Christmas with my kids. My oldest is nearly 8 and is starting to lose a bit of the holiday spirit (tonight at dinner she asked me if Santa was real… my heart fell and I quickly changed the subject – I don’t want this ride to end just yet!)
I’m not ready for her to stop believing, but I know that day is quickly approaching. This is quite possibly our last doubt-free Christmas. I want to soak in every moment. I don’t want to be stuck behind the camera trying to make sure I’m getting the right pictures. I want to see the joy in my kids’ eyes AND remember that forever.
This got me thinking how wonderful it would be to have someone else taking the pictures. I’d love to sit back and actually engage with my kids and enjoy Christmas morning with my family.
While I realize I can’t do this for myself, I can do it for others. So it’s with much delight that I bring to you my new Christmas (Eve) Morning Session!
Wouldn’t this make THE perfect gift for your spouse?
Christmas (Eve) Morning Sessions include:
2 Hour Photo Session on Christmas Eve Morning
don’t worry about what to tell the kids, together we will come up with come up with a good story. Maybe Santa is so busy he has to visit some homes a little early? _It’s just this one year and it will be totally worth it!_
1 Extra Large Coffee Table Photo Book
this is where the magic comes together! You’ll get one of my custom photo books that artfully tells the wonder of your Christmas morning in a storytelling fashion… the reader can submerge themselves within the photos and feel like they were actually there, ripping open the presents and sipping the hot cocoa!
All of the Digital Pictures
while a photo album is essential to re-live the morning, the digital files make sure that your memories are safe, no matter what.
Cost: this year I’m offering the session for $1800. (Next year this session will start at $5000)
Because this session is new, and there is a time restriction, I can only photograph one family.
The family I’m looking for has at least two young kids who deeply believe in the magic of Santa. As a family you enjoy celebrating the free-for-all that is Christmas morning. You’re not worried about the house being a mess or your daughter’s hair being uncombed. And yes, it’s okay for parents to get dressed for the part. Ideally you’d stay in your pajamas, but mom, you’re free to apply a little make-up and do your hair. No judging here!
Do you want to be that family? Click here: Christmas Morning Session 2012 for more information and to tell me a little about yourself.
I’m SO excited to offer this session! I cannot wait to witness the joy and wonder your children have on Christmas morning!
