The Holidays are quickly approaching and the rush to get to the Mall for those adorable photos with Santa will be here too. I want to challenge you to think about visiting and supporting a local small business owner who is providing Santa Portraits this year.
As a Latina woman married to an African-American husband we have typically shied away from traditional Santa portraits for a number of reasons. LONG LONG lines, packages that had too many products that I knew I would not use, and because the Santa didn’t ‘LOOK’ like my family. We are brown-skinned and I wanted my kids to see a Santa that they could connect with. So when I opened my studio I said this was something I wanted to provide to other families of color. So starting Saturday, November 16 at 2:30 I will be opening my studio for holiday photos with a Santa of Color. I am BEYOND excited to provide children with this option. I believe it’s important that they see Traditional Holiday figures that they can connect with.
Our Santa spent the last few months growing his beard, checking out the Studio, meeting MY children and getting all decked out for the season. I invite you to come in, I am offering mini sessions with digital files and print photos.
