As the year is coming to a close and the joy (and stress) of the Holidays abounds, I wanted to share a very special (to me) post–my own family portraits :). I have taken pictures of my own family before–a family image at the beach, or in the mountains, just a handful of shots here or there. And I’ve taken plenty of pictures of my kids, but, this is the first time I’ve attempted to photograph a true entire session of my own family. I couldn’t be happier with how it all worked out, and it has turned into the greatest Christmas present ever :). The entire session was shot with my camera on the tripod while using a remote. The kids were fabulous, and I know this gift is truly from them because they cooperated so well and we had so much FUN doing the session. The out take image is my absolute favorite :). Here are some of my favorite images from our session…I’ll treasure them forever, and like I always encourage my clients to do, they are not just on my computer. I already have prints made, gifts delivered, and a gorgeous 10×10 album sitting on my coffee table at home :). A little peak into what makes my world so wonderful!
