Meet Santa and Bake Cookies with Mrs. Claus!

Park Faire Photography Santa & Mrs. Claus Mini Sessions in Plant City, Florida

How amazing is it to be able to see your children’s eyes light up when they get to meet Santa? My little girl LIVES for the Christmas season and those few short amazing minutes she spends with Santa each year. She talks about it all year long, and spends the year getting ready for the following years’ encounter.

This year, I am SO EXCITED to be able to bring the magic of Santa to our photo studio!! ALL of us mamas know though.. Santa would be a hot mess, if it weren’t for Mrs. Claus keeping him in line….. Am I Right?!?!

How else is she going to make sure that big red suit fits him perfectly each year???

Step inside Santa’s workshop where you will find him checking over that famed list. Will you find yourself on the naughty or nice side of things this year???

But wait.. there’s more!!! This year, as an added bonus… Not only do you get to meet Santa in his workshop, but you will get to bake (pretend) cookies with Mrs. Claus in her kitchen!!!!

During your mini session, you will get to spend 20 unforgettable minutes with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Your littles can experience the magic of Santa unlike any other setting! Bake some cookies, then jump on Santa’s lap for some undivided attention to give him the rundown on your list. The entire family can settle in for a one of a kind family photo with unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. Your littles will talk about this all year long!!!!

He will spend about 20-30 minutes with your family before jetting back to the North Pole to finish up preparing for Christmas Eve!

About a week after the session, you will receive a fully edited downloadable gallery of all photos taken during his visit. Don’t forget to take your family shots by the tree with Santa while he is there!

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is being able to capture photos year to year, using the same props.  Here, we have used the same flag boxes to see how this sweet girl has grown over the past 2 years!

Lakeland Child Photographer [Harvest Holler Corn Maze Fun!]


We absolutely love this time of year!!!! The Holidays are near, and what better way to kick off the season than with a fantastic Pumpkin Festival and Corn Maze?!  Today we had such a great time exploring Harvest Holler Corn Maze in Polk City.  They pride themselves on being a real life farm… opting out of the typical bouncy houses and such that you typically find at these festivals.  They want to show off a real farm experience… and let me tell you….It was the Best experience for our family!

Being a Photog. I was over the moon with the fact that they had old farm equipment and photo ops everywhere!!!  I LOVE dressing up the little one for holidays, and couldn’t resist capturing shots of her all over the farm!



Our first stop was at the pumpkin patch to check out all of the pumpkins.. Baby girl just loved trying to pick them all up and choosing her favorite one!


Then we went on a hayride where we stopped and fed the cows and horses..

Our next stop was the fantastic train ride.  Little bit absolutely LOVED this and came back into the station with a huge smile.. waving like crazy!

Finally, we stopped at the corn cribs for some fun.  She thought this was the most fun ever!


There is so much more to enjoy at Harvest Holler that we didn’t get to see it all!  There are tire swings, animals, corn hole, a country store, concessions, and of course.. the MAZE!!!  Such great family fun for all ages… we are already looking forward to our next visit to Harvest Holler!

Want to capture photos of your little ones in their cutest Holiday Attire???

Contact me today to schedule a session, or schedule a mini holiday session for your entire family today!  What are you waiting for???

Lakeland Child Photographer [Backyard DIY Valentines!]

Plant CIty Lakeland Tampa Photographer - 2

Its that time of year again…..Valentine’s Day!!!!  For many of us, this brings about a collective groan.. knowing that we have to rush out to the store and cross our fingers that there will still be some “good” cards left for our school-agers.

So why not take the pressure off this year, and personalize those cards????  While I may be a professional photog, I am here to let you know that these photos are SUPER easy to setup by yourself, even in your own backyard!  While I like to make my own props and even clothes and headbands, this year, I ran down to my local craft sore and hit the holiday aisle.. snatched up a few little props for under $25 and voila’! Super Cuteness abounds!!!

Now this cutie is not yet school-aged, but she has an older brother and sister who we did a similar super-easy setup for a year ago.

Don’t rule out that backyard or park down the street as an awesome quick backdrop.  This is our old ratty backyard fence, and I promise, if you saw the entire backyard, you would never believe this is where I setup almost all of my quick shots with the little one!!

We hung our banner across the fence, and brought our super-cute subject out a few feet to blur out the back….

Make sure you not only capture wide shots, but close ups too!!
