Photos with Santa Post-Event Wrap-Up – Fundraiser for EAPL | Family Photographer Evergreen Colorado

Thank you to all of you who came out to support the Evergreen Animal Protective League this past weekend! There were dogs available for adoption, great gifts at great prices, and photos with Santa!  It was a gorgeous, sunny day here in Evergreen and the setting for our photos was perfect (kudos to the EAPL design team!). If you’re interested in adopting, there are still many great dogs available. Here are photos from the event and some of these dogs are still looking for a good family and a forever home. Also below is a sampling of our fun shots with Santa and with our beautiful Colorado setting. All the money raised from this shoot goes directly to EAPL, a 100% volunteer organization. Read more about EAPL here and consider how you can help this holiday season!...

Photos with Santa to Benefit Evergreen Animal Protective League | Family Photographer in Evergreen Colorado

Join fellow photographer Melissa Korbe and myself this Saturday at the Bergen Park Fire Station in Evergreen as we photograph your kids – furry and not-furry – with Santa! Each $25 sitting gives you time with the big, jolly guy in the red suit and 3 digital images, emailed to your inbox. All proceeds go to benefit the Evergreen Animal Protective League. They do good work, helping our voiceless friends find forever homes with good families. In fact, you can find yourself a new family member at this event – animals available for adoption will be there tomorrow!  Please read more about what EAPL does by clicking HERE.  I found my own fur-baby with the help of EAPL!  Hope to see you there. Check the flyer below for more details on time and location....

One of the most common questions I get as clients and I work together to plan for their photo session is: What do I wear?  This is a simple but really important question and the more thought and preparation that can go into this before the shoot, the better your images will look and the happier you’ll be. And that’s all I really want at the end of the day. Happy You. 🙂 So what DO you wear? The question might be simple, but the answer is not so much. As a starting point, I say: What is your style – be true to it, but take it up a notch. If you’re a jeans and cowboy boots kinda gal, be sure to polish those boots (or use this as an excuse to splurge on those ones you’ve been eyeing for the last year) and wear jeans that flatter your figure. I think a photo session is a great excuse to freshen up your wardrobe – with accessories if nothing else. And consider your session the chance to be playful with your style and have fun. If you dream about wearing a big poufy dress with the guys in your family all wearing tuxes and top hats, do it! That’s awesome (and call me immediately if you haven’t already – I want to be the one to shoot this). Next: What is your intention with your photographs? Will they hang in your formal living room on the mantle of your fireplace? Or will they be in your child’s brightly colored room? Thinking about the location you’ll be displaying your...
