Though she typically photographs her clients in her Pelham studio or amid Alabama landscapes, Amanda Moses made an exception to that rule in late 2012. To celebrate the holiday season, she snapped a series of shots in Santa's workshop, a whimsical set where the bearded myth himself made his list, checked it twice, and mugged for the camera with Moses’s two young daughters.
When she's not framing Santa, Moses draws on more than 10 years of photographic expertise to capture images of families, children, weddings, and sexy boudoir pictures. To better grasp what kinds of poses or prints they most prefer, Moses likes to spend time getting to know her clients before each session—a practice that also comes in handy for putting subjects at ease for the shoot.
