What do you do when the weather and the construction schedule on a client’s new home cause you to reschedule your session three times in three weeks? What do you do when the kids are too small to handle the freezing temperatures we’ve been having and the ground seems to be constantly wet from all of this winter mess we’ve been having? You take it all inside, of course!!
Sarah and I have been dreaming and scheming up the perfectly styled holiday session for a couple of months now. We’d nailed down all the details: the colors, the props, the location, the snacks, and even the perfect milk glasses to bring our cookies-and-milk Christmas session at a tree farm to life. And then we had to reschedule. And then again. So on our third try (when we realized it just wasn’t going to happen outdoors) we opted for an indoor styled shoot instead… something I’ve been craving for more than a year now. Sessions like these can be done around any holiday (Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day… you name it) and of course those of you that know me know that Christmas has my whole heart all year round. Little did I know that Sarah has an eye for decor and styling shoots and would put together the most perfectly cozy little holiday session that would truly make my year.
We shot this as a combo lifestyle session meets family session so we could get the best of both worlds and it was the perfect kick-off to this family’s celebrations. Who wouldn’t want to spend the afternoon hanging out in their pajamas, eating cookies (thanks, Starbucks!) and snuggling in front of the Christmas tree!? Looking forward to seeing these guys again in the spring for their full family session… and maybe at their new house for a repeat of this session next year!
Happy holidays, all. Stay warm and enjoy this slower time of year.
