Christmas brings family and friends together; it helps us appreciate the love in our lives we can often take for granted. May the true meaning of holiday season fill your heart and home with many blessings. 

I love Christmas because it is truly a season of GIVING and we give more time and attention to express gratitude for all our blessings. From November 1st until into New Year- I’m all joy and light and sparkle all the freaking time, y’all. I love Thanksgiving, I love Christmas. I love New Year’s. I love all the holidays cheer in between. So it should come to no surprise to any of you that I’ve already got my holiday card squared! Here’s our family photos and I’m happy it all turned out great!

Clearly, my kids are 99.9% of the reason that this image is so adorable but, in case yours aren’t as cuteeeee (wink), here’s a couple of tips to help you get that great shot. First, use natural light — the best place for nearly everyone to snag that gorgeous soft light is the golden hour at the park. Next, dress your people in neutrals with pops of color. For example, my kids wore soft blue and greys but with bright red. Finally, lower your expectations of THE PERFECT PICTURE– it’s not gonna happen. Instead of posting your kids and asking them to smile and look at the camera , have them DO something like hold hands, jump, or KISS. It will make for a more natural looking photo.

Even when it gets busy, the spirit of the holidays makes it so that we are willing to prioritize time together and making memories. It is one of the few times we honor and appreciate our family traditions. This coming Christmas, we get to spend time with everyone, from all sides, catching up, having fun and taking part in any (and all) longtime family traditions. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I am wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and happy New Year 2018.

    Such fabulous photos, Len!!
    So do you make everyone get up early for these shots, or were they later in the day!! I love the ones with the sun streaming in through the trees!!!
    And every photo is perfect—even when the kids don’t smile, because that’s real life, right?
    XOXO
