Reggie and I stayed up late chatting with friends about life and old times. We had come back to their home to pick up our son Remington after photographing a surprise proposal at the Circle of Lights in downtown Indianapolis. It had been such a wonderful day! First, Remington and I met my good friend and her husband from New York for lunch before walking around the Indianapolis Museum of Art. It was so fun to introduce them to Remington! He hammed it up for them all afternoon and gave them hugs before we left. It was one of the warmest December days, and we had the windows down a bit as we listened to Christmas music on our way home for his nap time. This holiday season has been filled with hustle and bustle, as it always is, but I feel like we've taken time to create memories too. We've taken Remington to see Santa, he's met Rudolph's girlfriend Clarisse, we've watched our favorite childhood Christmas movies (and we still have some that we want him to see!), and we've driven around looking at holiday lights and decorations. We've also spent quality time with family and friends. And that has been so needed and so fulfilling! We'll be doing more of the same over the next several days, and I can't wait to watch Remington enjoy the magic fills this time of year! Thank goodness we wrapped gifts a few days before Christmas Eve this year! Last year we waited until the last minute to help Santa get everything ready! And my new favorite trick for wrapping gifts…hot glue instead of tape! Why didn't I try this sooner?! So enough of my pre-morning-coffee rambling…let's get to the main reason that I'm so thankful this year! My sweet little family! They love me, and they spoil me every day with hugs, kisses, laughter, and adorableness! They allow me to do what I love - meeting and photographing wonderful clients for some of their most special moments in life. I'm so very thankful for the continued support of family, friends, and clients who've made this year another amazing one! From my family to yours, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Here are some favorites from our summer and fall impromptu family portraits!
These portraits were taken on a gorgeous summer evening at a small park that I've driven by so many times and never noticed how perfect it would be for some photos!
