I wanted to capture my kiddos while they are still in the “magic” of Christmas stage. I absolutely love this time of year with young kids. I love watching them find the elf as soon as they wake up, I love watching their eyes as they tell Santa what they want…I love all the magic. So that’s exactly what I wanted to bring alive on our very own Polar Express photo shoot!
At sunset, we drove to the nearby railroad track…just down the street from Nana’s house! Just like the book/movie, all the kids were dressed in pajamas, looking for the train to take them to the North Pole.
“The thing about trains… it doesn’t matter where they’re going. What matters is deciding to get on.”
“The bell still rings for all who truly believe.”
I had an idea in my head of the picture I wanted. It’s so magical, and I cannot wait to print it and display it every Christmas. Santa sprinkled some magical dust and made the North Pole train appear. He even left us a bonus by making it snow ;)
