Toddlers can be unpredictable on their opinions with Santa. Sometimes, it works best to have them jump in right away and other times, they may take a few minutes to warm up. Well, Isla jumped right in and was fully enamored with Santa. I had a feeling Ava would be the life of the party, and she didn’t disappoint. Checking Santa’s list for their names, followed by a little magical Rudolph nose and some dancing with Santa. It was the perfect Santa experience.
It is hard to believe that Christmas is just one week from today. I can’t think of a better way to get into the spirit of the holiday than sharing images from The third annual Fanciful Photography Santa Experience.
I have watched the youngest two grow from before they were born. I have to admit, I was slightly disappointed that we didn’t get an Epic Kate running from Santa photo this year. She was quite smitten with him (as was Gabe who couldn’t leave without one last hug).
Big brother Nathan and sister Maya were a huge help and not to be left out of the spirit of Christmas.
It was a true honor to watch Clara grow into a toddler over the past year. Planning for Clara’s one-year portrait session started months before the big day. Clara’s mom and I went over wardrobe and plans for what to wear, colors and type of cake, but mostly the idea that we would celebrate Clara’s first birthday in a relaxed but fun atmosphere. Clara was as cute and sweet as they come and made my job an easy one.

After some scheduling snafus and rain and weather that necessitated rescheduling and location change, I’d like to think the universe was “on our side”. Ivy’s sitting milestone portrait session took place early in the morning at her family’s new Sarasota home, which provided the perfect backdrop to document the is sweet baby girl’s sitting skills. Ivy is the second baby from her family to participate in Fanciful Photography’s baby plan, so they know the process well. When her mom texted me photos of the outfits she selected, I might have squealed just a little bit. They were the perfect timeless addition to accent and showcase Ivy’s smiles, beautiful eyes, and to multitude of expressions during her portrait session. I love the images her family chose to have printed to remember Ivy as “baby.”
Fanciful Photography takes on a limited number of baby plan members each year. Fanciful Photography offers Gift Certificates as an addition to your baby register to apply toward baby portrait sessions. The gift of memories will outlast the many gadgets that gather dust. Contact Fanciful Photography to schedule your baby’s milestone session or purchase a gift certificate.
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.
