Here are six of our favorite kids and their 2016 Heirloom Santa Claus Portraits for Cystic Fibrosis!
Let’s see. We’ve got Anna, Ryan and their little sister Lainey. Then we have Katie and her sister Lucy. And last, but not least, little Veronica. Six cute cousins all here for their 2016 Heirloom Santa Claus Portraits for Cystic Fibrosis!
All six of these wonderful kids have been in our studio for their kid’s portraits since each of them was a newborn baby! Pretty impressive! I always love seeing each and every one of them and they almost always have a pretty fun time here too. You can tell they all love each other by the way they all get along so well together. It’s not a quiet time by any means, but it sure is a fun time!
The two little buggers, Lainey & Veronica, didn’t have nearly as much fun with Santa Claus as their older cousins did, but we managed to get a couple of images of all six of them together. Maybe not a perfect portrait, but it really captures this moment in time for the family to look back on.
Pretty sure three moms and a grandma needed a glass of wine (or something stronger) afterward though! 🙂 Right near the end of their Santa Claus portrait session, both Veronica and little Lainey came through with flying colors!
Storytime with Santa Claus for Cystic Fibrosis
As mentioned above, our 2016 “Storytime with Santa Claus” themed portraits helped us to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis this year. Our Session Fee of $75 was donated entirely to Cystic Fibrosis, with our wonderful clients writing their checks directly to CF.
In addition, Joannie & I will be donating a large portion of their 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 just in the last few weeks has received a double lung transplant at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis. We’re happy to report that Lindsey is now home from the hospital and is recuperating very nicely.
During each fun-filled Santa photo session, kids got to visit with Santa Claus for about 30 minutes while reading books, singing songs and hanging out with Kris Kringle. Santa gave presents to each child and there for treats for young and old alike to enjoy while they were here.
So this year, all of the monies we’ve raised this year will be given to Cystic Fibrosis in Lindsey’s honor. Let’s hope they can find a cure for CF soon!
