It's crazy to know that Christmas is already over and soon we will be saying a great big HELLO to 2021! I'm always excited about this time of year for a couple of great reasons:
1. Christmas - Celebrating our Savior's birth, and of course family, presents and food!
2. Birthday - Our puppy, Cooper, was born on December 26, 2020! We were excited to celebrate this special milestone for our fur baby!
3. Anniversary - My husband and are celebrating #13 on December 29, 2020!
4. New Year - A new year means new possibilities and adventures!
As I have been reflecting on 2020, I have been reminded of all the wonderful blessings that have been given to me. One humungous blessing has been my clients and their willingness to stick with me through this crazy year. I wasn't sure what to expect as we all navigated through 2020, but I knew that I had to keep capturing memories! Because of my huge desire and stick-to-it-iveness, I decided to really take the leap and create both Christmas Family and Children Mini Session setups! I was a bit intimidated, as it was my first time offering both, but as always my clients didn't disappoint. They certainly brought their "A" games and I was able to capture the true essence and lovely spirit of each family as a unit as well as their fun-loving kiddos. With every giggle and click, I was reminded of why I've worked so hard to keep capturing memories.
One more final thought, I wanted to be sure to let everyone know that I honestly can't take the credit for the cutie buffalo plaid setup! The idea came from one of my friends and clients, Jessica. She was ready for Christmas way before I was (and honestly most people ♥️)! She brought her kiddos to my studio in early October and I warned her that I hadn't even thought about Christmas! She told me not to worry and that she had some adorable props to bring. During the session she unwrapped the cutest little tree setup and ornaments and you guessed it, they were all in black and white buffalo plaid! To keep it interesting, her kiddos were in the most adorable black and white with red striped plaid pajamas! Jessica had told me her daughter had thought of decorating the tree for their Christmas Children's Mini Session and that is how everything in the studio ended up being black and white buffalo plaid.
Even though, this year was far from fun and there were a lot of yucky parts, I will always remember 2020 as the year to keep capturing memories. It will also be the year I fell more in love with buffalo plaid!
May your new year be full of love, laughter and captured memories!
