Bear with us as we catch you up on how 2011 ended! There is a plethora of things to tell you about!
First off, there are our wonderful Santa sessions! During the month of December you may have noticed a jolly man in a red suit wandering around the lab. No, it isn’t Wilson in town for a visit, he is actually our wonderful Santa! We are so blessed to have the BEST Santa anywhere, the REAL Santa. Well, as far as we are concerned anyway. We had a record number of little ones pay him a visit this year. Each one having an experience you can find in few other places. Aside from our one of a kind Santa, the other thing that sets us apart, is the entire experience a child has when coming here. There is a private comfortable environment where children are at ease to get acquainted with the man in the red suit and tell them all their wishes! They have the opportunity to read a story with Santa and then each one receives a treat as they leave! This is by far one of my favorite times of the year with all those smiling faces (although not without a tear here or there) but knowing how many memories were made definitely keeps a smile on my face!
Next up is an event that we have had the pleasure to be a part of for many years (dating back to pre-f/32). Santa at Franklin Square is a fun family event where children have the opportunity to climb into Santa’s sleigh and be photographed as well as put in their requests. It is an all day affair, perfect for families to spend the day in Christmas cheer as they walk around the shopping center. Children’s activities, puppet shows, choir singers, face painting and even a horse drawn carriage creates and atmosphere that will keep you coming back year after year.
And lastly, we were invited to participate in Dog Days at Ijams Nature Center. Lots of owners and their puppies stopped by to have a portrait made while exploring with other vendors and meeting new folks. Ijams Nature Center has decided to partner with Poo Prints, a green initiative helping improve local air and water quality to create a cleaner and greener community, and this was the perfect launch opportunity! In 2011 we were very fortunate to develop a fabulous relationship with the people at Ijams and take part in several of their events! Hopefully we will have more opportunities to join in their fun events this year!
So to recap, we had a very busy end of 2011 and are anticipating a lot of greatness for 2012! Enjoy the images below collected from our various ventures over the last few months!
A big thanks to everyone who was a part of making 2011 a HUGE success!
