Taking your own family photos being a photographer is huge challenge. If you are a photographer yourself, you know just what I mean. Last year I used the self timer and lets just say it took forty minutes to get the boys to look at the camera at the same time! This year I was bound and determined to have Christmas photos taken where I wasn’t struggling to jump into the picture.

      A huge thank you goes my girlfriend Kristi Haddad of Markit Photography! She was kind enough to do a mini photo session for the three of us. The photos turned out amazing and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I love how genuine and real these are! Seriously, they make me melt inside.

      With Christmas only four days away, I hope each of you cherish every moment. I know it gets hard with the hustle and bustle of the holidays. But if you take just a moment you will realized how lucky and thankful you truly are. I’m incredibly thankful for my husband Mike and our dog Bailey. I know I’m looking forward to spending our 2nd Christmas together as a family.

      Merry Christmas from my little family to yours!
