Fall and early winter are one of my favorite times of the year. The weather starts to cool, I get to pull out my boots from deep within my closet, the colors around us start to darken and there is a warm, cozy ambiance that takes over our homes. It is at these times when I feel the closest to my family as during both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays I’m reminded of how blessed I am to be surrounded by those I call friends and family. Capturing those special relationships in our lives has become an American tradition at this time of year. We gather in our finest attire, get hair, makeup, mani/pedi, and complimentary colored wardrobe organized and make an appointment with our favorite family photographer. Maybe it has been a few years since your whole family has gathered together, after all, we’re all leading busy lives these days. So won’t you join in with those below and make the commitment to have family portraits taken this year so you can share your family in timeless portraits with those you love, and leave a testament to your future generations with a little part of their ancestry.
