Decking the studio!

The photos before you were crafted with care, by the lens of Roy Ritchie — photographer extraordinaire.

The fashion, the set, and the presents — lots, all cleverly styled by Stephanie Potts.

Mz. Leza Nuculaj fixed all of the hair, she styled and crimped and curled with care.

Kelly Mitre brought  her makeup tray, she prettied and powdered and prepped models all day.

And Lisa's Gift Wrappers made so appealing, All the gifts boxes stacked way up to the ceiling.
(The wrapping, bow tying, and taping all done, by Patti Amine, Yvette Douroujalian, and Tracey Robinson.)

And let's not forget all of the other elves, for their time and talents — and products from their shelves.
