**Please note** Due to high demand for Santa photoday, we will possibly open more dates for appointmtents.. please email us if the appointment log is full & you want on the waiting list.  This will insure you a spot for the next day of November 20, 2011 :) Thanks!  send email here ---------> 

So excited for this photoday!!  I spoke with Jolly ole' Saint Nick himself this morning & he is just as excited as I am to spend our day with you guys!   We will be setting up outdoors and like always we are making it a bit different from the rest.  We've decided to bring out "ole' Green" aka Toby our Vintage 1971 GMC truck ~ which is one of our trusty true props.. Ole' Toby Green came to us last year for our fall sessions and we were in love!  The color of this truck is timeless and pops so well in pictures, I just know when we fill her truck bed full of brightly colored gifts it'll be cute as can be!  Then if that weren't enough, we are going to plop our super sweet Santa Claus on the tailgate as he talks with all the good little (& big) kids for the day.  We plan to have a few more special props to use with Santa like our Dish of cookies & our book the Night before Christmas.  We will add fun stuff as we find it & don't even question it.. we are going all out for this one!!!    So, mark your calendars because SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN & it's going to be the cutest little visit he has ever made ~ let's show Santa how a photo day is done & help him to remember this day while on his trip to our sweet little town of Ellijay.

I want you all to know when booking that you are not only booking for the outcome of images but also for the memories this appointment will bring to your children.  This appointment will mean so much to the little ones who are able to come and not only talk to Santa but have Santa enjoy them.. When I met him this morning I was floored at his heart ~ he took his time with our meeting explaining his deep love for what he does.  I was told by a local that he went to learn spanish so he could speak to the little ones who didn't speak English.  When asked about that he told me that it broke his heart when a hispanic child sat on his lap and wanted to tell him what he wanted for Christmas but the only english words he knew were 'Trick or Treat'  ;) He said he then knew he would have to learn to understand the little ones so they could all tell him their wishes.  He also told me of his magic Key he brings to the sessions to tell the children of how he gets into the homes that do not have chimneys.. which is a question I've always had!  He will tell you all about this key when you guys come.. it's the coolest :)   So, why the stories.. I want you all to know that Santa enjoys this job & realizes what an important job he has with these little ones, he knows that they get butterflies in their bellies just by hearing his name & as they walk up to him to hop in his lap there eyes twinkle with magic.. it's the magic we all loose with the loss of our innocence.  So while that magical sparkle of belief still lives in your child bring them out to meet our SOUTHERN GRACE SANTA, he will forever touch their hearts & help that spark last an extra year or two.

You've been counted
