It is now only two weeks until Christmas! We are excited, as this is a fun time of year for baking, shopping, wrapping gifts, attending Christmas concerts, and various other winter activities as a family.
Quite often, people have photos taken in December to send out with a newsletter to their family and friends in the new year. This is a great option for those of you who won’t be with family until Christmas. Are your kids, siblings, grandkids, etc all going to be together at Christmas? It is a great time to have photos taken while everyone is home for the holidays! While the family is together, spend some time capturing those moments to look back on for years to come. Whether it be decorating the tree, indulging in some delicious baking, opening presents, making a snowman, or simply playing games in the living room. We’d love to be there to capture those precious moments for you!
