i hope you all had a wonderful christmas spending time with family and friends! note to self: next year do not spend money on expensive toys, because the kids have more fun rolling around in a giant paper bag.
i love it when i get to shoot with out any expectations of getting the perfect picture. we just mess around and the personalities of the kids are able to shine and i think you get way better pictures without trying so hard.
my favorite pictures of the season are the first and last ones of this post. the reflections of the kids in the fireplace and the reflection of the girl, who looks like the most perfect ballerina, in the pool. at this time of year, it's nice to take time and reflect on things.
while we were waiting for the rest of the family to come for pictures, i told my niece to lay back and think about her dreams. i have dreams too...they mostly involve a clean house and dinner on the table.
