Fairy’s, Fishing and Baseball!

Our summer has been filled with Fairy’s Fishing and Baseball!

I have been having a blast designing new set designs and offering these Limited Edition sessions.
Keep posted for more fun sessions like this to be offered in the near future!

I even recently traveled to West Virginia with my fairy set to train another photographer on building fairy sets, lighting and  photographing little fairy’s and fishing kids!  We enjoyed 2 full days of photographing adorable children and made some lasting friendships.

Imagine their excitement when they receive this in the mail and a personalized letter from Santa himself!

Santa is HERE! Santa is HERE! Santa is HERE!

Yes, Santa has arrived at the studio and we are kicking off our Santa Sessions.
The sets looks amazing and we are so excited to see all the children this year.
We are currently booking sessions for November 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 11th.  As of today we still have a few spots open.
Depending on my editing load we may add on one more date later in the month.
This year we are offering three different options for sessions.  We have a 10 minute mini session (no magic) and our 20 minute and 60 minute Fine Art magical sessions.

Santa’s Toy Shop is always such a hit with the children.  Pretty sure they want to stay forever.

Our parents even have a cute area to sit and watch the session.  If we decide to shoot on this set we will just kick mom and dad out there for a spell.


I love how Santa’s Den turned out.  I am a collector of anything vintage looking.  It takes me 5 days to get all the sets just right.
I add candle and lantern light along with a fire in the fireplace with all our magical Santa session orders.  I just love the warm glow it gives along with adding an extra twinkle to the Christmas lights.

I love the way our nice list turned out this year.  Every child that comes in for a session gets added to the list.  Of course Santa warns them that their name could magically disappear if they disobey their parents or are mean to their siblings.

I was so excited to find this awesome horse to add to our Christmas sets.  How cute is that!

Since we have so many instruments I thought we should have Christmas music for Santa to orchestrate his little musicians.
I was pretty proud of myself.  It turned out perfectly.

I even found this perfect music stand to hold the music sheets.  The ideas are always flowing.  Always coming up with something new for my return clients.

I love this little sleigh.  It is perfect for 1-2 little ones to sit in.

I am always on the hunt for cute pillows for my bed set.  I just love these.  So vintage looking!

I love adding lanterns to my sets so I can add the glow for the magical sessions.

Santa has all his tools and paints ready to design toys.

Just added these cute props this year.

Our horse is perfect to keep the little ones busy while Santa reads them a story.

We even have a mailbox for their wish lists.  Santa tells them it is magic and their letters go straight to the elves so they can get busy making toys.

We have fun vintage toys for boys and girls, big and small.

I am so excited to be adding this set to our Fine Art sessions this year.  Imagine your little one sound asleep in bed on Christmas Eve and then they wake up in time to see Santa flying away.

This would be the perfect end to your storybook album.  Imagine your child pulling out their very own heirloom album documenting their time with Santa on Christmas Eve.  Our stories are custom designed using your child’s name along with beautiful images from their session.  The magical edits make each page come alive.  It is truly a piece of art.

My favorite sessions are when the grandparents sneak the grandchildren in for a session and then surprise the parents on Christmas with a beautiful album or framed wall art.

We have had parents do the same and surprise the Grandparents with an image of all the grandhchildren with Santa.

Another favorite is when Santa helps announce a new baby on the way.

We would love to have you experience this magical event.  Visit for all the details and to schedule your session.

Wild West Minis Announced

We will be coming back to the Ice Arena for our Western Mini Sessions this year.  We are super excited to be back there again.  The only negative side is the craft fair is only open for one day.  Saturday, September 8th from 10 to 6pm.  So that means we will be VERY busy!  It will be highly recommended that you pre-schedule your appointment to avoid waiting in long lines.
We will be accepting appointments every 15 minutes from 10am to 5:45pm.  We will take walk-ins in between those times.
