If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know that each year I tend to go a little crazy on the holiday card. It’s my Christmas present….the one time a year I get to capture my kids the way I want. Typically this gets done at the end of the year after the rush of everyone else’s cards but I had a small window in November and suddenly everything came together. I was so fortunate to meet the fabulous Tanya with Southern Charm Events at a wedding the weekend before so we chatted and I found myself drooling over her gorgeous finds in her store.
I would love to offer more of these mini sessions styled so I thought I’d show what goes on behind the scenes. I did fast forward the set up so you wouldn’t be completely bored and the gaps are us trekking back to the car to get the rest of the props. It’s not a close hike (as my clients know from my favorite field) but the lighting is so beautiful there I had to shoot there. While I don’t claim to be a videographer at all, I am hoping to perfect this more in 2014 and add it to sessions as watching my own kiddos giggle in their session in print is amazing but in video just makes me smile head to toe. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
