Hey there everyone! We are finally crawling out of our much needed break and so very excited for this brand new year. We have A TON to share with you in the next few weeks. Admittedly, somewhere around June of last year we had to put blog posts on the backburner. We focussed our time and efforts on the fabulous weddings and portraits we were shooting and business related to-dos all while trying our hardest to maintain our family life and not stick our kid in front of the TV all day 😉 Anyone who thinks photographers just show up and take a few pictures is very mistaken! 😉
With that said, we’re going to do some back to back blogging to share some of our work from last year. We’re very excited to finally share the stories and pictures from the amazing people who allowed us into their lives last year. And then…we’ll move on to 2015! We are gearing up for an incredible year around here– shooting one more wedding in a couple of weeks and then a few more family sessions. Around the middle of March we’ll be taking some time off for Baby Walker #2’s arrival and will not be shooting again until May. But then it will all pick back up as we get back into wedding season and many, many family and newborn sessions.
To kick things off, we’re going to share a little of our past few weeks as a family 🙂 We finished editing all of our remaining weddings and family pictures around the beginning of December and promptly declared ourselves to be on Christmas vacation. It was so nice to spend time with family, rest, travel, shop and create some awesome Christmas memories for our little guy. Davis was very into things this year which made it SO much fun!
He really loved helping us decorate the tree this year & was actually very serious about it:
It was so nice to have all our work done so we could take the time to do fun things like make cookies:
We traveled to Atlanta to be with Leslie’s family the weekend before Christmas. It was a bittersweet Christmas for us as we just lost our sweet Papa right before Thanksgiving. He was the heart and soul of our family so it made for a very different Christmas party this year, but we all gathered and made sure to continue the tradition he started 66 years ago — it’s called the Grab Box. All the kids take turns pulling little presents out and it’s so much fun. Davis was very serious about it and loved every little thing he got- tons of light up things, coloring books and candy canes. It was hard watching the kids do the grab box there without Papa but I know he was watching us and so happy.
We came back to Nashville and spent a quiet Christmas at home- our last one as the 3 of us. It was perfect. Made cookies for Santa and watched Davis play with the 1987 trains he got for Christmas 🙂 Totally perfect.
