Santa Claus Portraits

Heirloom Santa Claus Portraits to raise money to fight Cystic Fibrosis.

Our 2016, “Storytime with Santa Claus” themed portraits helped us raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. The $75 Session Fee was donated entirely to Cystic Fibrosis, with our wonderful clients writing their checks directly to CF.

In addition, Joannie & I will be donating a portion of the custom print orders to CF as well. It’s our small way of helping to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

Our godchild, Lindsey, has Cystic Fibrosis and in late October of 2016, she received a double lung transplant at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis. We’re happy to report that Lindsey is recuperating nicely.

So our plan is for all of our Santa Claus Portraits, both now and in the future, that we will be raising monies to be donated to Cystic Fibrosis in Lindsey’s honor. Let’s hope they can find a cure for CF soon!

These traditional Santa Claus Portraits and our new Heirloom Santa Claus Portraits will be cherished for generations to come and they’re so much fun to create too! We’ll have a second theme in 2017 and we’re working with Santa Claus on that one. At the moment, we’re thinking it might involve Santa’s workshop! Stay tuned and watch here and on our Facebook page for the dates for next fall. –M&J

“Thank you Michael, Joannie and Santa! The boys are still talking about their visit!  They wanted so badly to go in the backyard to see Santa’s reindeer that evening when we left!

I was amazed at how the boys relaxed and felt so comfortable interacting with Santa, you guys are amazing at what you do! – Thank you!

I love all the pictures, it’s going to be hard to decide which ones we want!”
