I literally have about 200 blog posts in queue. And while I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, I will say that I have a goal of cranking out 2 or 3 posts a week once things slow down a bit, which should be around the first of the year–so I guess I’m resolved. Today, however I’m skipping ahead 199 posts to get this one out because the subject matter moves me. On top of photographing the words cutest twins, Rory and Redding (I mean, seriously), the shoot itself felt authentic as a capture of a day in the life of a little Denver family around the holidays. Christmas cookies, the tree, cold weather, woodland creature sweatpants– I wish I would have had these fleeting Christmas seasons captured more in my own life, and plan to do so in the future. I’m a sentimental, Christmas sap and there’s something so magical about the month of December. Alas, it’s gone until the following Christmas when the kids are an entire year older–and what a difference a year can make… Do yourself a favor and skip the samey-samey “fall colors” family portrait next year and instead, capture some real-life magic.
