They say, after every storm, there is a rainbow. Feeling blessed to share this beautiful image taken several weeks ago at Lido Beach. Sarasota was spared the strongest wrath of Hurricane Irma. There are still hundreds of thousands of residents in Southwest, Florida still without power, many and have clean-up to do around their homes and places of business. Fortunately, most of this is a head-ache and not the total devastation we were looking at on Friday and Saturday’s forecasts, and for that, I am grateful.
As I finalize our family’s hurricane preparations tonight, I wanted to send thoughts for safety to all of Fanciful Photography‘s clients and support. We have decided to ride the storm out in our home and feel as prepared as we can be. As I prepare the last hard drive for protection from any elements and packed for a quick grab to safety, I had to share an image from a recent session at one of Sarasota’s beautiful and famous beaches. I know many of us share the same joy and love for the beautiful turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to hopes for safety of the lives of those on the Suncoast, my heart can’t help buy pray that our natural paradise is spared.
You are invited to Fanciful Photography’s St. Armand’s Circle Studio for Cookies with Santa. Mr. Claus will be making a special appearance direct from the North Pole for a relaxed and unique holiday experience. This year, you can avoid the long lines and crowded malls and instead, spend some quality time with the big guy and Fanciful Photography.
One of my favorite parts of getting ready for the Holidays is taking out my family’s photos with Santa. Each child reacts so differently to him. Some of my personal favorites are when my oldest is looking so full of awe into Santa’s eyes while my youngest is in full blown tears. We will try to capture the magical joy of the Holidays using a variety of poses and strategic positioning as needed; however, children will be photographed if smiling, crying and anything in between!
These sessions are designed for babies and children only.
Contact Kimberly at www.FancifulPhotography.com to schedule your Santa Mini Sessions today. Additional Holiday Simplicity Mini sessions geared toward families will be held this fall. Be on the look-out for details. A very limited number of Signature and Classic Sessions are available through 2017. All portrait sessions must be completed by November 27, 2017 for Holiday delivery.
Another Fanciful Photography Newborn is celebrating a milestone. Clara is O N E !! Her and her family came to Fanciful Photography’s natural light studio on St. Armand’s circle to document the big event. Clara was toddling, crawling, smiling, laughing, playing peek-a-boo, smashing and splashing during her session. It’s always an honor and so much fun to follow families through the first year (and beyond).
I love sending out client’s galleries. This session is so packed full and when looking at all the images together, it tells such a great story. Selecting a favorite is quite the challenge for me. I always love a mom and baby image, and this one of taken at Siesta Beach during Kennedy’s last session of her baby plan is just perfect!
