The last weekend in September I held my earliest Christmas mini sessions ever!  And they were fantastic.  I have some of the best clients around.

Christmas family sessions are my favorite because year after year I get to see these families grow.  Some of these kids I knew and photographed as newborns.  And just like my own kiddos, these are all growing up too fast!

I’m looking at another weekend booked with family sessions, so instead of doing individual posts for each family, I’ll give a best-of!


Below is the fun Eiland family.  This is my first year to photograph them, but I’ve known them since before that beautiful little girl joined the ranks.
