Over the Christmas holidays, I wanted to capture some sweet shots of my youngest daughter. Not in the studio but rather at home and bit of a lifestyle session.
My family loves Christmas and every inch of the formal living room is decorated. For my little girls (and my older kids too!) this is the most exciting time of the year, with presents tucked under the tree, the lights in every window and the Hallmark Channel playing every night.
Rosalie doesn’t quite understand the season but has a general idea and realized there were new rules about not being allowed to touch the pretty ornaments. Her face always lights up when she would get close to one of the tree (confession I had three trees this year….and if I can get away with it I will add a few more next year) and I wanted to capture the wonder.
She had a sweet new dress and for once I allowed her to get a but closer and touch a few a the less delicate ornaments. My typical style of photography is posed and I wanted these pictures to feel a little more lifestyle, but I still gave her a few prompts and instruction, so not a true lifestyle but I am happy with the result.
They are just nice Christmassy snap shots that I will always treasure.
