Okay, this is the cutest family ever. I am really a little jealous. They have three gorgeous boys (with the BEST names, no?), they live up in Nederland, and they are all so happy. It is funny, because as a family photographer I see a lot of families, but I guess they are usually at their best, right? My clients get all dressed up for the photos, bribe the kids, make sure all the babies are well rested and fed. And when I come to their homes, their houses are all beautifully decorated and are so very clean (how can you fake that?). And so, I am left with the impression that all the families I photograph have got it all together and are happy all the time. But I know that can’t be true. Because in MY family photos-it is the same-we have not a care in the world. I bet there is someone out there that thinks I have the perfect life too. But it is all relative.
I do think I had what was as close to a perfect day as I will ever get last week. We stayed inside, decorated the tree, listened to Christmas music and drank eggnog. The kids were happy, we were not stressed about anything, and we just relaxed into it. There is a reason why we love the holidays so much, and it is because of perfect days like that.
And speaking of holidays, the last card orders need to be in TODAY. So, if you have not decided on your card yet, please give me a call and we can chat about it a bit. Those who have not seen their galleries yet will get a couple of extra days.
