I love the holidays... festive parties, gatherings of friends and family, pumpkin spice and twinkle lights. It is a time when generosity and kindness are celebrated. I love giving gifts to family, friends and strangers-in-need. I often find myself gifting framed pictures or portrait sessions... not out of a loathing for holiday-shopping crowds (although that is true) or as a cop-out, but because great pictures are something to cherish and they last forever.
I had a great time this past Saturday at my pet-friendly holiday portrait session during Avondale Winterfest. I am super thankful that despite the heavy rain, a few wonderful clients and friends did come out to see me. We enjoyed some mulled wine, cookies and fun photos and even raised a little money for I <3 Hungry Kids.
