Last week, my wonderful colleague, friend, and neighbor kindly welcomed me into her home for a holiday photo session. I then proceeded to open her blinds and shutters that were closed, and close the ones that were open. I also rearranged some furniture. Lucky for me, M. and her family didn’t seem to mind a bit. They have a beautiful home and I love that I had the opportunity to capture this little piece of their lives. As I chose the images for this post, I discovered the difficult part of photographing someone in your circle of friends during the holidays…the fear of posting an image that they intend to put on their holiday cards. There is always that excitement of opening a photo card, and getting to see a beautiful family photo for the first time. In order to keep possible holiday card photos a secret, I chose to feature the glamorous Miss H., her beautiful piano, and Coco, their sweet little dog.
To M. and J., thank you for going with my idea to do photos in your home and also for cleaning up after the rearranging I did! You were great!
