Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and to you pagans Winter Solstice is almost here! No matter what your celebration is, for me, this is always a magical time of year. I love buying or making unique gifts for people. Knitting hats, sewing quilts or in the case this year taking family pictures for my sister. Last Saturday we all congregated at Buncom. Buncom is a little ghost town in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon. She managed to wrangle all her children in one location without the use of bribery. I told you, it's a magical time of year! Anyway, along with her wonderful children and husband was her new Grandson, Reid. He absolutely stole the show! You can see a couple of the images captured on the front page of the website. It took about 45 minutes and we ended up with some fantastic images. I'm just finishing up matting them now and will be delivering them this evening. I really enjoy the post production part of photography, making slight lighting tweeks, choosing the perfect mat whether its single mat with an inside border or double mat with a 1/4 inch contrasting edge, I love it all. Fingers crossed this will be one of many family picture sessions i get to be a part of. Well, i better get back to it. So i wish you all a very Happy Holiday season, whatever you celebration is and look forward to the new year filled with new experiences! Oh, p.s. my sister and i were able to, for the first time ever, do the dishes on Thanksgiving....my mother had to be physically removed from the kitchen but we did it!
