As a beginner photographer I can honestly say one of my biggest nemesis’ is lighting. They say practice makes perfect and I don’t mind practicing one bit.
Especially when each family has been crazy fun and super cute.
And this family was no exception.
To battle my nemesis, Bad Lighting, I showed up late morning when the sun shone bright through a magnificent wall of windows.
We started our Candid Christmas photo session with that quintessential tradition that’s been bringing families together for longer than I know.
The Christmas Tree
And what a gorgeous tree they had, indeed. Standing a glorious thirteen feet, she was a beauty to behold and the perfect backdrop for their family photoshoot.
Okay, and sometimes the perfect umbrella…you know, for that adorable baby!!!!
Obviously the bulk of our morning was spent pouring over family ornaments and finding space for them on the tree.
And posing for the camera of course.
Tree decorating, especially a thirteen foot behemoth, is no easy feat. So we rested our feet and settled down to regroup with a storybook that’s close to this sweet family’s heart.
The tree and story were done but we weren’t.
I had with me a bag of fun and oh the fun we had.
The candy was camera shy, but the kids weren’t.
Thank you for sharing in this little photographic journey and may I wish you a very merry (and bright) Christmas.
