My Holiday Photoshoot

Whitney Hartmann - Wednesday, November 23, 2011

So I always do a couple of photoshoots with my own kids during the holidays. My mom likes to have pics for her cards, and they always seem to be dressing up for one occasion or another. So on this day I had a client photoshoot in the park, and I thought it would be good to throw some holiday clothes on them and bring them along, with my husband of course to try and help out. What you see might look familiar to you. Did you know our kids cry, scream, don't listen, and don't look at the camera too? That's right. So I thought I would post a few pics of "reality" before you get the "good" ones in the mail! Enjoy!


In the end there were a few good ones.


Can't wait for the next one! I think it will go a lot better! 


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

3rd Annual Holiday Boutique - Milk and Honey Farms Santa Barbara

Whitney Hartmann - Tuesday, November 15, 2011

On Dec 3rd, I will be participating at the 3rd Annual Dos Pueblos High School Holiday Boutique at the very charming Milk and Honey Farms in Santa Barbara. I will be doing holiday photo snap shots, or full mini sessions on the farm! This is not your average farm either. This is the Martha Stewart of all farms! It is too cute with so many great photo ops! PLUS there will be so many great vendors there and probably a perfect Santa Barbara day!!! So come join us for that as well!!




Hope to see you there!
