Veterans and First Responders

Santa's Coming! Let's go to the North Pole!


What is TWP?

Thousand  Word Project was started as a way to give back to the Wounded Warrior /  Disabled Veteran community. The old saying is :a picture is worth a  thousand words." Well, we can't say THANK YOU enough times to our men  and women in uniform; including our emergency workers.  

As  a full time caregiver to a retired disabled veteran, I understand that  many families are busy with life and having family portraits are the  last thing on their minds. So this is a way for me to give back to the  community that helped my family when my family was going through combat  injuries.

What does TWP - Santa Experience do?


One on one session private with Santa in a totally live interactive experience. This isn't a traditional

photography session that has standard poses, but a live photojournalist documentation of the

family's interaction with Santa. We have over 15+ different interactive triggers that Santa will

naturally flow through depending on the age and cooperation of the participants. Santa will read,

sing, place candy canes and other decorations on the tree, and a whole lot more. While this is all

happening we will be capturing every moment. If there is time at the end we can do the old school

staged sit in Santa's lap photo, but this is not the focus on what the Santa Experience is all about.

Its more than just a photoshoot, it's a true experience that the family will talk about for years to

Who can join TWP?

So  who can join TWP and have their portraits done? All of our veterans and  their families. Also included are our men and women who serve on the  front lines now in our hometowns. Police, fireman, and other emergency  responders.

Our  veterans serve this country in theater and continue to  serve today at home. Police officers and other emergency workers keep us safe  here in our homes on a daily basis and we owe all of them for serving  us.
