I had a very, very busy Christmas card season this past year! Busy in terms of, busier than last year! Starting with three sessions when I went home to Massachusetts for Thanksgiving week, my work continued with six more sessions within a two-week period! That’s a lot considering they all needed to be edited, put on a disc, sent out and received before the second week of December (my own deadline). With everyone ordering cards online these days, it takes time to create your cards, have them shipped to your house then turn around and send them back out to family and friends hopefully all before Christmas Eve! I need to look into offering Christmas cards for my clients! All I found this year were going to be pretty pricey.
The following are the families I met with after Thanksgiving for their Christmas cards!
Here is the Holston family, enduring a chilly, breezy afternoon on the beach for their pictures!
Here is John, Briana and Peyton! They came to my house to be the very first family to use my husband’s
new old Ford F1. It wasn’t running or driving yet so we had to push it into position! Then we ventured down the street to some wooded area for a little change in scenery. The day started out drizzly but since we really had no time to reschedule, we went for it anyways and made it without any rain!
Here is the Morris family! For those not aware (which is a lot of you), I have a part time job working with Dr. Cammie Morris at her dental office in Shallotte, NC. We got together one afternoon after work for a quick session with her family outside with her husband’s old truck (at least his was running and driving at the time!- sorry hubby!) and then some fun shots inside her home with the kids. And for the record, the whole “messy kitchen/baking fiasco” shot was her idea! I was just an innocent bystander! But for the record, I love it with clients don’t mind getting messy and dirty because they can make for the best pictures! 🙂
Last, but not least: (maybe saving the best for last?) my ADORABLE nephew Nate was the best little 3 month-old Christmas elf for his First Christmas photo session! He’s just a perfect happy baby all together so his daddy and I were able to do all kinds with him and he only got fussy once when he wanted a lunch break! I know he looks a little awkward in the wooden sleigh but I was picturing him being a lot smaller than he was when I bought it! He is growing WAY too fast! But he’s getting cuter by the day! I’m so happy I get to document the first few years of his life while we’re living here! 🙂
