1st Santa Photo!

Growing up, my Mom took my sister and I to get Santa photos every single year. So... of course I'm going to continue the tradition!! We waited in a VERY long line for this, but it was worth it. It was a fun day! {read: this post}

The lady actually took like 10+ photos for us... and there were a couple cute ones of Bennett kinda smiling and looking at the camera.
But I chose to go with this one because I think it's more natural and I just love the interaction between Bennett and Santa. I love that Bennett is looking at him like "Who are you?!"... but he wasn't scared at all. He spent the whole time just playing with his beard and hat.

Anyway.. HERE it is! This will be going into his baby book under the "Babies first Christmas" section! :)

bennett is such a champ! since all my shots of wyatt were of him screaming, i chose the most awkward looking one to enhance the HILARIOUS factor. that's cool that bennett wasn't hardly phased. such a cool kid.

This is so adorable! I think i'm going to skip Santa this year. I know my daughter will scream and cry and Santa doesn't deserve that! ha

Oh my gosh, that's so cute!! I think you picked well - love the look on his face!

so sweet! Unlike Bennett, the first time I sat on Santa's lap when I was little, I screamed so bad! Needless to say my parents haven't made me sit on Santa's lap ever since ;)

hope you are having a great tuesday!

love,
Samarah

So cute. I wonder if he'll grow up wanting a beard someday.

P.S. So glad you finally picked a team ;)

Jeska said...

So curious about Santa :) I love this one, it's perfect!

Angie McCulloch said...

Perfect choice!

such a great photo! we haven't taken henry in yet but i'm hoping to get either a ridiculously adorable one like bennetts or a hilariously awkward one. either way, i think mr. santa is going to blow hen's mind!

so glad he switched things around for you at ten months too. isn't it so strange?

What a great 1st pic with Santa. I'm pretty sure my first picture with Santa I was crying my eyes out and my mom had to be in it with me (in fact, I think my first few Santa pics were like that now that I think about it....) I love how he is looking at Santa like "Who the heck are you??"

Ashley said...

Such a great picture! I wrote about my little boy's 1st visit with Santa today, too! :)

Ashley Sisk said...

He looks a bit curious.

I'm glad he did so well. What a cutie. Reese- who is normally not scared of strangers AT ALL- cried. We got one where she looks like she is smiling, but I think she is really just breathing in getting ready for her next wail. It's cute anyway :)

I am so glad that it turned out as good as it did. The wait wasn't bad at all either. Maybe next year I will dress up and we can just do them at home. haha

Ohmygosh, that is so cute! I love that you chose the one of them looking at each other. Super, super cute!!! And I love that Santa. He looks so real. :) Miracle on 34th...?

melissa d. said...

this is perfect! what a good looking santa too-making me rethink my loyalty to the nordstrom's santa :)

Elaine A. said...

That's a GREAT shot! So glad he wasn't scared or upset. Very sweet...

this is such a precious moment! i love how he is in awe of santa's beard and face and...well, just all of the santa man's features. so happy you picked this one, and that he dug the whole santa experience :)
