It was a cool wet Saturday morning when we packed up the kids and headed to my office for our annual 2015 Client Appreciation Christmas Portrait day. Every year since 2011, we have hosted a portrait photoshoot where clients and friends come by for a family portrait.

Just like the previous years, we had another packed house with lot’s of folks coming in to get their picture taken with the big guy himself.

We had our best turn out yet with hundreds of people coming through over the 3 hour event. Our training centre was stocked with snacks, colouring and letters for the kids to write to Santa. Unlike the mall, our elves ran a smooth operation and we had most people in and out within 20 minutes.

Last but not least, we also managed to raise a boat load of toys for charity which is another bonus.

Here is a video I shot of our event in 2013.

A great time was had by all and I can’t wait for 2016!
