Christmas is my favorite time of year; it always has been. When I was younger it was for the obvious reasons of gifts. As I grew up it became more about spending time with family; less about receiving gifts and more about giving them. I truly enjoy gift giving, I love that it can make someone happy even if only because of the thought.
My son’s birth only added to my favorite season since he was born 2 days before Christmas. So because the holidays are so important to me, personally, for family reasons…I absolutely LOVE that as a photographer I get to capture Christmas memories!
This has to be the best part about being a photographer…seeing so many families and their happiness around the holidays.
There is also something about children and Christmas…it amplifies the wonder, excitement, and innocence in them and their parents. I love it all, honestly. Plus the outfits are usually so freaking cute! Be prepared for an overload of Christmas portraits…but they are so worth seeing. 🙂
