Santa Photos 2013

The year wouldn’t be complete without Santa photos, right?

Every year, since Dylan’s first Christmas, we’ve done the mall Santa thing.  In fact, as I unpacked the other day, I found them all.

Clearly, it’s never been a planned thing.  It was always more like, I was already Christmas shopping at the mall and thought, “Oh, look!  No line!”

I’ve also never been thrilled with them or felt the need to share them with anyone.  They were cute little keepsakes that felt necessary for memories but, unfortunately, could never be more than that.

This year, however, we were spoiled with better Santa pictures than I ever could have imagined, by one of the most talented portrait photographers I know.  She also happens to be one of my closest friends.  She may have something to do with why we looked at houses in this area and ended up with the house we bought.  Maybe…

She is incredibly generous and absolutely amazing at everything she does.  She volunteered her time taking photos for a Santa event hosted by her (and happily soon to be my) MOMS club and what an amazing Christmas gift.  I am so excited to share these amazing photos by Ashley Henry Photography!

The event alone was amazing and put together by another very encouraging and generous mom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.  We’re so excited to become a part of the community here.

  1. I love them because they are so candid. I’ve always preferred those fun shots to the stiff, formal ones.

  2. Awww. Adorable. We’ve done the Santa pictures three days ago too. The kids love him..
