Visit With Santa

Today I had the great opportunity to photograph some beautiful children with Santa.  I'm not one to idealize Santa or make it the be-all-end-all of Christmas, because for me
Jesus is the Reason for the Season.

But I think it's fun.  And kept in perspective, it's part of the Christmas festivities.
The senior center in our local town invited me to be the photographer for an open house they held today.  There was a beautifully decorated Christmas tree with some lovely packaged "gifts" scattered around.

Amazingly we had 65 children attend the function in a 3-hour timeframe.
I had a wonderful assistant who manned the printer and who contained the chaos, keeping me on track and keeping all the parents happy.

It was a fun session, but I have to say that I'm glad it's over. 
I must be getting too old for this.  Either that or I'm not getting paid enough.

Hmmmm, maybe a little of both.

Absolutely beautiful...and precious!!! You certainly have a gift. I'm sure the parents will treasure these portraits for years to come! So glad you had a good turnout.
