More Christmas Family Pictures

This session was fun for me for several reasons! Jamie, the mom, is a longtime friend of mine, I used to babysit for the 2 older girls when they were little bitty (I remember we watched Muppets & played Barbies!), and because this family is one of the first that I really remember photographing when I was still just shooting as a hobby. I went on a little search and found this image from several years ago when I was new to studio lighting and still shooting with film. I'm guessing this was 4-5 years ago....I'm not sure!
Boy, have I learned a lot since then and the family has grown a lot since then! Here they are now, still as cute as ever!I love it! The most noticeable change (obviously) being the adorable baby on top of the stack! :) She's the little Christmas angel!
Look at those eyes! So beautiful!
Thanks guys for letting me photograph your adorable family! I am setting up your online viewing asap so you can get something chosen in time for Christmas! :)

We went tonight to DuQuoin State Fairgrounds to let the girls see the Christmas lights, and also to Candy Cane Lane in West Frankfort. They were most impressed by Candy Cane Lane, mostly because of all the characters! We had to drive through twice so they could take it all in! Ava thought "Candy Cane Lane" meant she was going to get to eat lots of candy, so we were glad there were some girls there taking donations and handing out candy canes!

NOTE TO Seniors & Family Christmas Photos: Please get your orders in to me ASAP so we can get them done in time for your yearbook deadlines and Christmas Cards, etc. I need to receive them by Friday (at the latest) so you won't have to pay for rush shipping!
