Every year, I choose a different location and experiment with different lighting for my Christmas Minis. Usually I do it outside, where the lush green of Florida winter does nothing to add to the Christmas/wintery feeling. This time, I did most of the mini sessions indoors against the bright bay window of my dining room. With enough decorations and overexposure of the window, you can just imagine cuddling by the sparkling tree on a cold, snowy day. However, the gem of each picture turned out to be the Christmas spirit brought by the families photographed. Their smiles were especially merry and bright this year!
And I did one mini-session outside this year. I love this tree at Treaty Oak Park in downtown Jacksonville. The branches seem to be a metaphor for this beautiful family and the closeness they share.
Thank you to everyone who made these sessions fun and meaningful. This is my favorite time of the year because it helps you remember what is important.
See you next year!
