A couple weeks ago, Tom reached out and invited me to the family’s new home for a holiday photo session. When I arrived Tom told me that he booked this session as a gift to his wife for her birthday. I may be biased, but I can’t think of a better gift! We captured photos in their spacious living room which features two large picture windows looking out on their beautiful pine trees blanketed in fresh snow. Their charming Christmas tree is set just in front of the windows. The evening prior, while the boys were out of the house, Tom and Nicole meticulously stripped the tree. They removed all of the carefully placed ornaments to restring it matching lights. They redecorated the tree with their curated collection of ornaments, including many that the kids made by hand. Just check out this beautiful tree and family alongside it. I’d say they did a fabulous job! Pay special attention to Odin and Dane’s outfits. Sharp huh?!
During our session I captured a diverse range of photos where the boys had fun smiling at the camera, jumping up and down and, my favorite, zombie walking. I was charged with the task of getting a smile out of Dane, who is well known for his stoic look in photos. Odin on the other hand provided such good energy and assisted with getting a smile out his brother by standing behind me, sporting moose ears.
After we finished up, the family made holiday cutout cookies with grandma. That, to me, is the perfect way to spend a Saturday the weekend before Christmas!
Tom, Nicole, Odin and Dane,
Thank you for choosing me to photograph your session for you. It was wonderful meeting you all. Happy belated birthday to Nicole and happy holidays to all!
