Our 2016 Christmas Portraits
Even though we are photographers and I grew up having my photograph taken all the time by my mom, we are really bad about getting our photos taken! However, just like my mom always made it a priority, I always try to have Christmas portraits done of us every year. Sometimes I’m on my A-game and have them done by the end of October or other times (Cough* cough*, this year) they don’t get done until the week before Christmas! But one thing, or I should say one person, I can always count on is my best friend Brooke Carter to capture us oh-so-perfectly!
Every year for the past three years, we have dressed up, picked a spot and taken each other’s Christmas photos. We always have a great time and it’s the perfect way to get our photos done quickly. If you want to see Brooke and Frank’s Christmas photos click here. This year they had a special announcement included in their shoot!
Brooke has been one of my best friends for a little over nine years now and over the years I’ve taught her the essentials of photography. She has assisted me in a handful of shoots and has even been my second shooter for a few weddings. When it comes to aesthetics and composition she thinks just like me. Plus she knows her angles too, so I always feel like I’m being captured in a flattering way.
After our shoots, went spend way too many hours gushing over the photos as I edit our favorites. This has definitely become one of my favorite Christmas traditions! Here are a few of my favorite shots!
From our family to yours, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
