We’re spending the holidays with family this year. I’m so happy to be away from the city’s hustle and bustle to spend some quiet family time with my in-laws. I know my kids are too!
The first thing we did was find our tree!
And for our very first time, we cut it down ourselves!
The kids were a little skeptical about walking all over this huge tree farm at first. But once we had selected our tree and cut it down they got into the whole process.

It was a fun trip but I have to say, I’m happy to be back in 60 degree weather even if it is kind of wet right now
I’m finally done with my 2012 family sessions. I’m working on the final edits and should have some free time to get caught up on my personal photography and life in general soon!

I am so grateful to have had this experience. It has grown my photography in many ways to shoot a variety of families at some of the prettiest locations in San Francisco. It is a wonderful journey in creativity and I am only at the beginning of it. I am looking forward to 2013 and everything it has in store for me.
