So it was that dreaded time of year again... Christmas Portraits. Although the day started out a little rough, I have to admit this time was just a wee bit easier to orchestrate, hopefully next year goes even smoother.
We started the day with what I thought would be simple and easy photographs, the kind with the kids just standing and smiling, which would work up to what I ultimately had in mind. Well the easiest photo to take turned out to be the hardest one to get and the more complicated shot (featured below) turned out to be a little easier; go figure. So here's my favorite shot from the 2012 portrait session with my niece and nephew (and yep they've tied up Santa and are looking through the loot).
