THREE ALL NEW SETS!
Four Dates to Choose From.
We have totally outdone ourselves this year!


Details, Details, Details...
*All Sessions are 20 minutes in length
*Sessions are prepaid when reservation is made
(session fee AND minimum order)
*Extended Sessions are only available during Santa's Polar Express

The Reason for the Season
This very special session will make a beautiful portrait in your home that really celebrates the story of Christmas, the traditions of today and the Birth of Jesus Christ. Bring a family Bible to add a personal touch to this session and bring your children dressed in their Christmas best as they read the story of the very first Christmas with Santa.
Here are a few more images to show some clothing and posing options. 
*Session can be done with and without Santa Claus*


Santa and His Reindeer
We have done the IMPOSSIBLE!
We have brought a real, live reindeer to San Antonio to hang out with Santa Claus AND your children! A portion of the proceeds will go to ZOOMAGINATION.
This session has very limited openings and will sell out quickly.
*Due to the nature of live animals, we do not recommend very young children in this session.

**The scene will differ from the above images. 
We will be having our red barn, a split rail fence corral for the reindeer and hay to sit on. 
It will be a very Merry Tex'mas!**
Santa's Polar Express
Santa's Polar Express is great for all ages!
This very storytelling setting is perfect for portraits, album and of course, Christmas Cards.
We will be booking TWO days for this session which will be VERY Popular!
This session would be adorable dressed in their Christmas best
OR in adorable pajamas just like the movie. 

FAQ's
(Frequently Asked Questions)

1. Will I have to wait in line?NO WAY! All of our sessions are by appointment only. If there were an unforeseen circumstance where waiting may occur, you will do so in a comfortable environment where seating is available. While we RARELY

have this happen, there are the occasional times that

waiting 5 minutes may be necessary.


2. Can we have a change of clothes?

While we try to be as accommodating as possible, we do not recommend a clothing change during any of our Collector's Series Sessions. The sessions are only 20 minutes and we want the full time to be used photographing your child.
3. What if my child is afraid of Santa?
If your child is between the ages of 9 months-3 years, the chances are EXTREMELY high that Santa may be a bit "scary" to them. This is normal. We begin every session with images without Santa and introduce him as the session evolves.  There are many times that Santa is in the portrait and the child is unaware of that.  Rest assured, with or without the man in red, we will capture a beautiful image of your child or children in our amazing scene.

4. Can my family join in?
Some of our sets have the capability of having families join in the session and some do not. Typically, our sets are designed specifically for children and tend to look a bit "small" when adults join in. This year, our Reason for the Season may work with a small family of up to 5 people and our Santa's Reindeer session is able to handle families of up to 6 members.
However, our FALL FAMILY SESSIONS are beautiful, non-"Christmasy" sessions that showcase your family in beautiful environments.

5. What type of packages are available?
We have a la carte prints as well as packages that range in price with all kinds of amazing products. In order to get more information about what our packages include, please contact the studio where we will be happy to answer any and all questions. While our specialty is the finished printed product, we do also have a digital package, should you wish to purchase the digital negatives.

The Irons Family in PARIS! {San Antonio Family Photographer}

I had the JOY of traveling to Paris, France this past summer for Destination Portraits. You know I LOVE to Travel and Paris was high on my list of places I wanted to do portraits. I was able to book THREE fabulous portrait sessions in this beautiful city and I enjoyed every minute!

Here are a few images of the Irons Family, from San Antonio. They are clients of mine that I have photographed for many years as I have watched their little girl grow. We had an early call for our Sunrise Session (5:30am start time), but watching the sunrise next to the Eiffel Tower with NO OTHER TOURISTS around was worth the early rise. They brought the cutest umbrella as a prop!

After the Eiffel Tower, we headed to the Alexandre III Bridge. What a gorgeous bridge, with some great views too!

Then we headed to the Louvre for more portraits. The city was just starting to wake up and we were  still nearly the only people at any of these places.

We found the old "Metropolitain" sign behind the Louvre and made a quick pitstop.

Then we were off to Montmartre. We had breakfast together in a cute cafe by the artists square and had a few artists visit us offering to draw our portrait. We then headed to the Sacre Couer, but by then the place was crawling with tourists and our beautiful light was turning harsh. So we found a little area at the back of the beauiful church to create a beautiful portrait and then we were done for the day.

We captured some beautiful memories for this family during our trip to Paris. Memories that will last forever in photographs.

Thank you to the Irons Family for trusting me to create these amazing images!




One of the Iron's Painted Portraits that will reside in the home as Wall Decor.
