Pictures With Santa

Saturday was the annual Lunch With Santa in Byron. It makes some good kids and Santa photos for the paper. A commercial photographer always shoots photos of the kids on Santa’s lap for Mom.

Each time I am at one of these events I am impressed with the patience of these brave photographers who regularly do photos of children. I am a firm believer that the best kid portraits are candids. Turn them loose and ‘em around with a camera. Shot for a while and you are bound to have some killer photos.

Just like these two here. The top photo, any mother would love. The bottom one, probably not too many. But it is still a nice moment. I have similar moments of my kids. Not always smiley, but a time to remember.

They are only kids once.
