"Christmas & New Years...Plus a New House" Session | South Florida Photographer

How exciting to be in a beautiful new home for the holidays! This mom had it all together!! After moving in just a week before Christmas, she had coordinated her family of grandparents, for family pictures. A daunting task for most of us, but she did it with calm style and grace.

You all know my philosophy of "letting them play with sticks." (Check out this post from earlier this year.) The boys...7, 5, and 2 were very excited to be in the new house and Christmas just around the corner. Mom's wish was some family pictures around the tree & the staircase. We got those and let them play later.

With a little help from Photoshop we got those group images with everyone looking front & center. But, I have to say, MY favorite is the littlest one crawling up the stairs while the rest of the family poses in front of the tree. He was done. He wanted to go off and "play with sticks".  It's what they do when they're 2 years old.  :)

Later, Mom had this great idea of getting out the red wagon and some moving boxes. She was wanting to put together a "New Year, New Home" card. I love how the "photo story" came together for these.

Enjoy & Happy New Year!

There he GOES....
