’tis the season to be jolly in chicago | santa lifestyle studio portraits

Let me just say that being able to tell your children you just got off the phone with SANTA (and not have that be a fib) is the best parenting tool to date!

I was so fortunate to be able to have THE Santa Claus in my home/studio this past weekend for an amazing end of year Holiday Party with my past clients. This is the time of year to be charitable, and I have a huge attitude of gratitude. I’m grateful to have the world’ BEST clients, meet Chicago’s cuuuuuutest kiddos, and I got to gift everyone some amazing holiday portraits with Santa, too!

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it and thank you to Santa for trekking it allll the way from the North Pole! 😉

Happy Holidays!  XOXO


I kind of… really like the ones with screaming babies. If only because Santa has the best reactions :O

Little ones! Big ones! Bows! Suspenders! And a reindeer hat for good measure!



  • Sees you when you’re sleeping
  • Knows when you’re awake
  • Knows if you’ve been bad or good
  • Knows how to FIST BUMP!! (see center image below)


Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season full of happiness and good health! 🙂
