Melissa Dawn Photography captured our party on Saturday night. She is simply amazing:
I was approached a couple months ago by Suzi asking if I would be interested in volunteering my time photographing a fabulous event that she puts on every year for kids that are on the Autism Spectrum.
Children, Santa, a good cause, loads of fun and excitement…how could I resist!?
The event was spectacular! Santa arrived on his sleigh pulled by his glowing reindeer with bags full of presents. One present for each child, exactly what they had asked for. The children screamed with excitement as happiness glowed upon their faces.
The night began riding with Santa in his sleigh through the neighborhood decorated with lights, and followed by Santa handing out presents to every child while they sat upon his lap, next to a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.
It was truly a magical event and I felt extremely blessed to have been a very small part of it all.
Thank you Suzi and family for putting on such an amazing event that I am sure meant so much to all the children and parents involved, including myself.
