It’s the most exciting and magical time of year, and Santa will be back at our NEW studio location (151 N. Sunrise, #705 in Roseville, in the same lot as Outback Steakhouse and next to Quest Diagnostics) to help make dreams come true once again! We have added 3 hours on Friday this year, so those of you who are able to come that day, I’m sure it will be a little less busy than the weekend days. Regardless of when you come, we will have our amazing elves helping to keep things running as smoothly as possible. One thing you can do to make things easier is pre-fill out your registration form and remember to print it and bring it with you to the event. A few very important things to remember: please don’t forget to include your email address and phone number, as we do email reminders about pickups, and sometimes have questions and need to reach you. Also, PLEASE print clearly if you fill out by hand, as we want to make sure we get all of your information correct! :-). You can find the registration form HERE.
As always, please bring a new, unwrapped toy (min. $20 value please) for each sitting/portrait with Santa (if you have multiple children but will have them sit together, only 1 toy is needed; if you would like each child photographed separately, then please bring 1 toy for each child/sitting). The toys will once again be donated to our local Toys 4 Tots chapter.
If you do not choose to have your print(s) mailed to you, they will be available for pickup at the studio Friday, Dec. 18 and Sat., Dec. 19 from 11am-1pm. If you are not able to come during those times, please be sure to select to have yours mailed. If you purchase a digital image file, they will be emailed by Wednesday, Dec. 9. We can’t wait to see all of you this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday! 🙂
We are overwhelmed with the support shown this year once again for our Toys 4 Tots Santa portrait charity event. We were thrilled to see nearly 300 families and collect such amazing toy donations from our generous community! We also want to thank our co-sponsor, Northern California Dance Conservatory, for their help in making this event a success. Below are just a few highlights from last weekend’s event. If you attended, please don’t forget that your prints will be available for pickup (at the studio) this Tuesday, Dec. 18 from 11am-1pm and Wednesday, Dec. 19 from 4-6pm.
Santa Claus came to town! Last Sunday we held our first annual Toys 4 Tots Santa portrait event at the Silver Spoon children’s boutique, and it was wonderful all around. Santa came to hear the Christmas wishes of close to 200 kids, all while we captured those wonder-filled (and sometimes tear-filled) moments. It was great to see how many people came out to see Santa and donate toys for less fortunate kids….a great reminder of the kindness in our community. These were two of our favorite images of the day…okay, so we’re a little biased…it’s our girls! Grandma brought them at the end of the day so daddy could have the rare honor of capturing the true innocence of their childhood. A huge thank you to the Silver Spoon and everyone who came out in the cold to support our local Toys 4 Tots!
