Merry Christmas Eve! I hope that everyone gets to spend tonight and tomorrow with friends and family. The last few weeks have had many moments of deep thought into what I want in 2013. Something I have been thinking about is how important it is to enjoy the everyday and extra special moments with friends and family.

Being a photographer might sound like it’s all fun and games, but it’s actually a lot of work. There are many business related things that need to be taken care of that are not fun at all. I have found myself sitting in front of the computer way too much and missing out on life. Something clicked recently and I knew that I NEEDED to live my life and not miss out on creating some amazing memories. Although it was much later than I had hoped, I was finally able to take photos of MY family! My sister, her amazing husband, and the best niece and nephew I could ask for got in front of my camera.

The funny thing about this shoot is that we had planned quite a few things. I sister and I both had spent hours planning for this session. In the end, I think we just let go and kept it simple. And you know what? I love the images. I hope you do, too. 🙂
