I was going to wait to put these up until after our Christmas cards were delivered, but, I feel like they need to go up now.
The long and short of it, where we live, we won’t ever get the nice, wintery, snowy, family Christmas pictures. It’s just not going to snow this early, and to get out there with a photographer in that moment. Nope. Not going to happen. We also don’t have a house with a beautiful sitting room to sit in front of to take pictures. I’m also not going to schlep our clan all the way to the Jefferson, with photographer in tow, to get our pictures taken there. And besides, that’s so basic.
So what in the world is a girl to do, to get into the Christmasy spirit, without traveling? Answer: Find your local Christmas tree stand, farm, or whatever. Have a good photographer, and good outfits picked out. And let her do the magic.
We live right next to the Jaycees Christmas tree stand. When I say right next to, I mean, we put the kid in the wagon and walked a block and we were there. They always have beautiful trees, it’s usually not busy, and there’s ample room for us to be out of the way.
Anyway, here are some pictures from our latest photo shoot. Tara Gibson is a godsend. I don’t know what I will do when she can longer take Anna’s pictures!
Anyway, we are super happy with how they turned out.
