The Med Bay has been re-purposed into a workshop to help out Santa.  Notice plenty of new blasters to hopefully help the stormtroopers improve their aim ... although the look on Han's face may mean he had something to do with their (in)accuracy...

 

There's a Christmas cookie buffet in the detention center since the prisoners are currently out and enjoying the festivities.  R2-D2 kindly loaned his serving tray to R2-Q5.

 

Standing in line to get photos with Emperor Santa, although don't make him talk much - he's a little raspy right now ...

 

SNOW2-D2 is getting some help building a snowman from Obi-Wan.  He has obviously used the force to help get the facial details so perfect.

 

R2-TREE2 has found a way to harness the power of the extra light produced by the superlaser to grow Christmas trees for his very own tree farm.  It is so successful that he is able to keep the entire Death Star supplied with plenty of trees.

 

Story time and hot cocoa with Darth Santa.  Admiral Yularan's mug fits him so well. 

 

Santa Yoda and Santa Fett have figured out that TIE fighters can deliver letters to Santa in a fraction of the usual time!

 

A certain dianoga is getting a clean trash compactor and some decor to brighten things up for the holidays!

 

C3-PO gets the honor of putting the star on the tree while decorating with the other droids.

 

Very few know about the secret ice-skating rink in the basement! 

 

Onery twins swinging around on dad's Christmas lights.  I have a bad feeling about this...

 

Christmas karaoke with Santa Maul.  His favorite is "Rockin' Around the Dathromirian-Zabrak Tree"...

 

Helping NORAD track Santa, but only because they have more advanced equipment over a parsec out so they can see the whole planet all at the same time.

Happy holidays from everyone on this Death Star!!!

Baby L | Katy, TX Newborn Photography http://tonyamayberryphotography.com/blog/2015/10/baby-l-katy-tx-newborn-photography I met this adorable baby girl's momma when I was asked to create a Madrigal costume more years ago than I will admit.  ;)  I have so enjoyed getting to know this super sweet family and we had a lot of fun during this session!  Thank you so much for letting me be a part of capturing these memories!  She is beautiful and I look forward to seeing her grow and learn so many new things!

I love when my clients like to have a bit of fun!  She's off to save lives and conquer the bad guys in this next one, and then ....

Madison | Katy, TX Photography http://tonyamayberryphotography.com/blog/2015/10/madison-katy-tx-photography This session was dedicated to capturing memories and studio images of some of this young lady's favorite costumes from her dance troops' performances.  Watching her put on a different persona for each costume was so much fun!  She has great talent and is passionate about her work, but most importantly she loves and has a lot of fun with it!  Thanks guys!

Sweet Baby L | Katy, TX Newborn Photography http://tonyamayberryphotography.com/blog/2015/10/sweet-baby-l-katy-tx-newborn-photography This sweet little angel is such a cutie pie!  You can tell she already has her parents wrapped around her tiny little finger!  Thank you so much - she is precious!!!

This family Bible is one of the oldest things I have ever held in my hands and I felt like I needed gloves to handle it properly - although it has been rebound, the first pages of family records date back to before the United States became a country.  What a neat legacy!
