As I think about what Christmas and the holidays mean to me.. I think about my kids mostly and just that look of excitement and anticipation the their little faces hold. I spend a lot of time behind the camera, trying to capture these faces, I hope to spend more time looking right at them, face to face.. seeing all those glimmers and twinkles in their eyes when they run up the stairs on Christmas morning and head right to the stocking.. or wait for my husband to get out of bed, which to them feels like an eternity. Do not get me wrong, of course my camera will come out, but I want to take in all of that which is Christmas, family and the true meaning of it all.
This little peanut is Madison, Madison' mom found me online and I had the opportunity to take her family to a great spot to take some shots downtown. Don't get me wrong, I love love love taking pictures of family and friends and friends of family and friends, but it is always fun when someone reaches out to me with interest in my photography that I never have met before. Little Madison loved to smile as mom and mom and dad were holding her, but once we changed her cloths and gave her a Santa hat, she got into the Christmas spirit.
