Merry Christmas to all my wonderful clients and blog readers. As you might know, my photo season for the year always ends at Thanksgiving so that I can then concentrate on Christmas. This year I ended the season with a better understanding of how it is for my clients by having our own family images taken. 🙂 It’s been years since we’ve had our family picture taken other than snapshots of us doing what we do when we do it — and I always treasure the spontaneity and memories of those snapshots for sure — they fill my g-babes playroom after all. But after photographing others for five years now I wanted to do it this way. I didn’t want to do the tripod thing and run in and out of the picture so asked Cassi Johnston, both a friend and client, if she would do the honors and waala, we have some family pictures folks! Thank you Cassi, you did a great job and I am so appreciative. So it is with love to all my readers that I send my blessings to your family from ours this Christmas. May you experience the love that Jesus has for you in every way. Now as we move closer into 2016 don’t forget how fun snow pictures could be … or what about sending some Valentine’s Day love to someone you love? Remember, any time is picture time! Love and keep smiling, Mary

Check out Cole’s helicopter hair … it is what remains of the hair he had at birth. The wind and the streak of light caught it in flight.
