Merry Christmas!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there….

Merry Christmas to all!
We’ll see you in 2012!

The Roundup

I’m finally here in North Carolina, with my husband’s family, preparing for Christmas by shopping, resting and generally hanging out. My mother-in-law is a chef, and my husband and his family is from Colombia, so we’re enjoying the most amazing food, as usual. Tamales, shrimp and scallops a la veracruzana, ajiaco…. just the best.

Everyone left for a movie just now, and I finally have a few minutes to reflect on the year. And what a year it has been.

Work has been really rewarding, as usual I have the best clients, but this year I’ve also had many opportunities to try new styles of work, to practice old techniques, to learn from master photographers, all in the ongoing quest to develop a style all my own. Here are a few favorite images from the last few weeks. I’ll keep posting till I catch up on this fall.

Hoping you’re having fun getting ready this holiday season, and surrounding yourselves with friends, family and great food.

Little Climbers

It’s been a busy fall! Just starting to catch up on fun posting and sharing of images….can it truly be December already? A few favorites from an earlier fall session with Heather’s family. These kids are among the most adventurous I’ve met!

As we’re finishing the session, I turn around, and the boys have climbed into the roots of this amazing fallen tree …
To give you a sense of how big this tree is, and how adventurous these kids are!
I think here I asked the family to just be themselves, and forget about the camera 🙂

More soon!
