one The holidays are right around the corner and soon we will be firing up the crock pots, dusting off our holiday sweaters and poppin' bottles of wine!
I LOVE Christmas!!! I think most of my excitement comes from my family all being together and my brother coming home from Florida. Quality time is my love language and being together for an extended period of time makes me overflow with joy. I love waking up in the same house as my brothers. My mom cooks the best meals and we all snuggle in on the couch to watch football, drink beer and play lots of games.
Last Christmas Josh and I shared the exciting news that we would be expecting our first baby in the new year. We took each of family members aside and shared the news with them. It was such a joyous season for us and our family. Last year was also the last holiday season where we celebrated the holidays together in our childhood home. I am so thankful and happy that we took these photos in our front yard because this year everything will be different.
I think sometimes people associate family photos with stress and arguments; but to be honest life is short and you never know how life can change in a year's time. In my opinion gathering your family and embracing the kids crying, or your teenager's bad attitude is worth it. If you have an experienced photographer they can help you forget the negative moments that led up to being in front of the camera. They will help change your mood and bring your family joy. I promise an experienced photographer will capture moments with you all laughing, giggling and having a good time. Sometimes with clients look at those pictures and think, "When did that even happen?!" "How did you do that?"
