Let the holiday cheer continue into mid January!! I know it's late, but I really wanted to share some of the photos from our holiday mini sessions in Buffalo, NY. There were just too many good ones to share individually, so I decided to make a blog post of a few of my favorites!
I hadn't anticipated that I would be able to do these sessions in WNY since we had moved to Orlando, but so many people reached out and I thought...maybe we CAN do this. Mary was open to the idea and Rebecca at quaint rentals was also on board. The last piece of the puzzle was a location, and that was really not decided until the 25th hour. I'm so lucky everyone was so relaxed about the details and trusted that we would find the right space. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law graciously let us use their beautiful back porch. It is covered and has a working fireplace, perfect for the less than ideal weather in November. There was a windy and slushy snow storm the day before, so we were lucky the area was a bit sheltered. Rebecca turned the space into a very inviting, winter wonderland! I'm so happy that it all worked out!
Mary and I loved seeing all of these families. It's amazing how quickly the kids grow and change over the course of a few months. We got to meet new babies, saw babies we photographed last year that are now walking, and conversed with kids we've known for years that seem so grown up and mature now. Sure, we worked through some tears and wiped a few cold weather boogies, but TimBits, cookies and hot chocolate seem to always work their magic! I also happen to think that those candids make for the best Christmas cards!!
Thank you so much, to everyone who reached out to me about doing holiday mini sessions again, you ultimately made this happen!! And, thank you to Mary, Rebecca, and the very generous Boryszak family, especially Rita who was sweeping, cleaning and continuously adding wood to the fire while we did our thing on her patio! Thank you!!
