More Christmas mini sessions! | Dr. Z Photography | Youngstown, OH

The last of the Christmas mini sessions at Pioneer Trails Tree Farm were awesome! No Santa at these ones, but such a great place for photos. Here are a couple highlights from these sessions.

Check out the smile on this cutie!

Kinda melts your heart, doesn’t it? So sweet!

Speaking of super-sweet babies, I had the pleasure of meeting this guy and his parents at the tree farm. What a sweet and beautiful family.

And in case you weren’t paying attention there…did you see this two-month-old rocking this hat? This kid’s got style.

I had SO MUCH FUN at Christmas mini sessions this year! Thanks so much to all the families who came out to the tree farm (and to Santa, of course)!

(There are still one or two spots left for Christmas minis in the studio on Dec. 6…contact me to book yours!)

Christmas mini sessions this year were SO much fun! They were held at Pioneer Trails Tree Farm (and thanks to Mary Jan Perdulla for the very generous use of this gorgeous land!), and on the first day of mini sessions we had a very special guest…Santa!

Santa was amazing (well, he’s Santa, so of course he was), and it was wonderful that every child got to spend some serious quality time with Santa. Thirty minutes per session gave us plenty of time to do family and individual child photos and still get plenty of one-on-one time with our guest of honor. 🙂

Here are some of the wonderful (and so photogenic!) families that came out for the first day of Christmas sessions. Am I seriously the luckiest girl to get to photograph these beautiful faces? 🙂

First up: how. freaking. cute. is this family?

Cutie pies!

Next up: the gorgeous Miss M. She rocked that dress, she kept her amazing smile while her nose was freezing, and she was generally all-around awesome.

You might remember these handsome guys from Frankie’s newborn session…they braved the cold to come and hang out with Santa!

Those little guys have style to burn. And those smiles! I’m seeing modeling careers in their futures. 🙂

I ended this day of mini sessions with one of my very favorite families (who may be quickly becoming the “face” of Dr. Z Photography). 🙂 Always wonderful to have them in front of the camera!

Seriously, just look. at. this. How sweet are they?

Of course, I can’t end this post without showing you how excited my own sweet little guy was to get to see Santa! He brought Santa a picture he drew (Santa in the sled with the reindeer) and he LOVED getting to hang out and talk to him. He told me later, “Now Santa will remember me every time he sees me!” (so I’m thinking probably no more mall Santas in our future!). So sweet and such a wonderful experience.
