Holiday Festivities

This holiday season I have had the pleasure of photographing more families than ever before. I’ve met some very wonderful people and been surrounded by many beautiful kids, parents, siblings, and grandparents. It’s been a great season and I’m proud to have wrapped up everyone’s packages in time for gift-giving and card mailing. I’ve had fun with each of you!

In my house, after all of the portrait packages were completed, I got busy with my family holiday traditions. The tree is up. The presents are wrapped. The cookies are ready for Santa. The plentiful food is ready to be consumed.

I have two small children and we spent a recent Sunday with things like this:

And dangerous things like food coloring that can stain lots of things if not contained. It’s quite necessary to mix with frosting though.

When we were done, there were plenty of cookies.

Some a bit more appealing than others.

Whatever you may or may not be celebrating this season. I wish everyone a warm and happy winter surrounded by love, family and good friends.
