2022 Santa Photos Event

Tallahassee Photographer, Sarah Gray

I look forward to this event each year! The 2022 Santa Photos Event is on the books! This is such a magical time for children and it’s a highlight of the year for us here at Sarah Gray Photography.

If you’re wanting beautiful, classic, simple, photos with Santa, this is the event for you.

2022 Santa Photos Event Details

  • Each session includes 5 minutes with Santa and 3 digital files to download and print on your own.  I know from experience this is enough time to have magical interactions and create great photos.
  • Photos will be ready within 2 weeks of the event date with your images delivered in an online preview gallery for sharing, downloading your included 3 images.
  • I’ll be a fly on the wall photographing your child’s interaction with Santa and then we’ll do some directed pictures with the man in red.
  • This event is just for the kids. We will not be offering whole family photos but be on the lookout for some special family photo events at this same location.
  • Because of the nature of these sessions, there are no reshoots or refunds for late arrival/uncooperative kids.
  • Santa is a 30+ year registered nurse, excellent with children, and will prepare for your child ahead of time.
  • Families with more than 4 children must schedule two sessions for longer time with Santa.

LOCATION: Old Bradfordville Schoolhouse.  6808 Beech Ridge Trail, Tallahassee, FL 32312

I hope you’ll join us this year for the 2022 Tallahassee Santa Photos Event!

    Style Inspiration, neutrals

    Late Summer 2022 Outfit Inspiration

    Keeping it simple with creams and whites helps tone down the hot weather by inviting a calm. When this color pallet is done well, it can be soft and beautiful. If you see anything you like, don’t wait too long. These may sell out quickly and aren’t updated since I release a new board each month.

      Spring Maternity Photos with a Toddler Sibling

      Tallahassee Maternity Photographer

      I love spring maternity photos with a toddler sibling. When you mix the excitement of toddlers with the anticipation of a maternity session, you can’t help but smile while looking at these images. The curiosity of a toddler and love for their mama is easy to photograph because it’s just their nature. Goodwood Museum and Gardens was, yet again, the perfect backdrop for this maternity session.

      As a Tallahassee maternity photographer, I photograph families at each stage of family life. Whether it’s the newness of welcoming your first baby, or the familiarity of a third pregnancy, each is unique and should be celebrated. When your photos include a toddler sibling, you’re in for a fun maternity session. You can see more of my maternity work in the gallery and then contact me to photograph your soon-to-be arrival!

        Best Camera to Buy in 2022 for the Hobby Photographer

        Tips and Tricks from Tallahassee Photographer, Sarah Gray

        Best Camera to buy in 2022 | Tallahassee Photographer Sarah Gray

        I just got off the phone with a former client who is wanting to gift a camera to her daughter for her college graduation. I know it can be overwhelming to try to purchase something you aren’t familiar with or for someone else who IS familiar with photography. Here, I’ve done the digging and put together my recommendation for the best camera to buy in 2022.

        I’m often asked what gear I recommend for someone who is interested in moving beyond their iPhone camera. When most people are ready to make the move to a “big” camera, they are referring to a DSLR which stands for Digital Single Lens Reflex.

        No matter what camera you purchase, having an understanding of how to use that camera is absolutely the foundation for any photography. I’ll make some recommendations and offer a discount for education at the end of this post.

        My camera recommendations for a hobby photographer and photography lover in 2022

        First, I’m a canon shooter. There are other big names for DSLR cameras with Nikon and Sony being the most well known. They make great cameras as well and I’ve used both those brands a little bit, however, I love my Canon and have used a Canon my whole career. Because I’m most familiar with the Canon family and can confidently stand behind it, my recommendations are for Canon cameras.

        Most beginner cameras are sold with a basic lens, often called the “kit lens” because it comes as a kit along with the camera body. Buying a kit means that you’re able to start taking photos as soon as you open the box and put a battery and memory card into the camera. These kit lenses aren’t the best quality but are necessary when learning photography because they will zoom a little bit. This allows you to take photos both indoors in smaller rooms, and outdoors.


        Best Camera:

        • Canon EOS Rebel SL3 DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) comes with an 18-55mm kit lens. Price is about $730
        • Another great camera would be Canon EOS Rebel T8i . The reviews on this one were great, but it does not include a kit lens. Cost $750

        Lens:

        If you’re wanting to go beyond the most basic (and you likely will) then I highly recommend adding one additional lens to your camera bag.

        Canon 50mm F1.8  Price about $130

        Accessories:

        • She’ll also need SD Cards. HERE are the ones I recommend. $30
        • Adobe Lightroom Editing Software. If you’ve been doing photography on your phone, you may likely already has the mobile version of this app and are paying the $5 per month for the mobile version. The desktop version isn’t much more at $10 per month.
        • Education! I highly recommend this Starter Course.  It’s really the most important piece for any photography you’ll want to do, no matter what camera you decide to purchase. The photographer who teaches this course is great at explaining the basics and will take you really far in your understanding so you can put it into practice and not get frustrated with the tech side of photography. And there is a lot of tech to understand in order to take the photos you’ll want to know how to take. Cost for the course $199

        The Breakdown for Best Camera in 2022:

        In summary, here’s the cost breakdown of recommendations for the best camera to buy in 2022 to get you started as a hobby photographer for around $1000:

        $730 Canon Camera, Rebel SL3 DSLR
        $130 Canon lens, 50mm f1.8
        $30 SD memory cards
        $199 Photography Starter Course
        $10 p/month Lightroom Editing Software

        $1069 Total
