Santa Spotting at Childish Couture!

Well, thank goodness I was able to capture this before he flew off to get back to work in time for Christmas!  Thank you to Diane and Erika, the owners at Childish Couture, for letting Santa and me bring joy to childrens’ faces (for the most part *wink*)!  And thank you to our patient Santa who was so great with all the kiddos!

Here is one of the fabulous images from yesterday’s Portraits with Santa.  This one just made me giggle!


If you are interested in future promotions or session specials at any of the boutiques I am partnered with, swing by one of the locations below and see how our past events have been!  I will have display albums at the counters for some of the portrait events that we hold.  Come by, say hello to all my wonderful partners, and take a look at the albums!

Timeless Holiday set sneak peek!

I had to post how the set is shaping up!! Here is a look into the holiday limited edition colors and decoration for the Timeless Christmas at Childish Couture. The sessions will be on 11/14 and 11/15 from 10-5pm.  Each session will be good for up to 3 children.  A variety of holiday packages are offered along with the session at reduced prices for the two days.
