I’m still on cloud nine after photographing one of Atlanta’s most beloved family events! Macy’s 2015 Great Tree Lighting was held at Lenox Mall in Atlanta with special performances by American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, Danny Gokey, Mercy Me and so much more! I was the official last year and it was quite an honor to come back and capture all of the AMAZING moments.
Of course the highlight of MY evening was meeting the lovely Jordin Sparks again. We met last year at her private listening party and she is was the same jolly and kind person as before. Oh my goodness she closed out the program with “Oh Holy Night” and almost brought tears to my eyes. Did you guys catch it on tv last night??
Check out my selfie with Jordin!
Boy.. it was cold (freezing) outside but thank goodness for Santa’s little elves who passed out hot cocoa and coffee 🙂 Guest were also treated to a delicious candy bar and even more performances by the Sarah Smith Children’s Choir, Magical Stars Dancers, Priscilla the Pig, The Macy’s All Star Choir and SANTA!
Me and Santa!
Last but not least… the tree! Mayor Kasim Reed, Santa and 2 amazing kids fighting chronicle illnesses stood proudly on stage to push the button! My only regret was leaving the boys at home. This event is such a wonderful family tradition for hundreds of families… it was just too much for me work and worry about the boys in the cold for 5 hours. They were fine… daddy took them out to one of those arcade venues with race cars, pizza and prizes. Oh my!
