Christmas 2010

This year was a great Christmas once again! 
We spent Christmas Eve watching some Christmas shows until it was time to go to bed.
Christina made sure to leave a plate of cookies and some milk for Santa and she even wrote her a letter!
After opening all the presents on Christmas morning, we celebrated some more in the company of our wonderful friends, the Moultons, the Heslins and the Melacci.
Here are a few photos from this year's Christmas:
Every photo has a story and capturing our family's memories is my favorite thing to do!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and 
I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a 
Happy and Safe New Year!

Decorating the Christmas Tree

This week end, we went to pick out our Christmas tree, despite the rain. 
This has become a family tradition. 
We all go together and decide which is the best tree for our family. 
We always purchase a Noble Fur; the branches are a little more sturdy than the 
Douglas Fur and holds heavier ornaments.
This year, we found a beautiful Noble Fur of about 8 feet tall, that we all liked.
After stringing the lights, I let the kids hang the ornaments; 
It didn't take long before it was completely decorated!
Here are a few pictures:

A few more years and Nicholas will be old enough to string the lights
and all three of them will be able to hang the ornaments on their own...
All I'll have to do is to supervise!
But in the meantime, I enjoy spending time with the family,
decorating the tree, baking, or wrapping presents...
It puts me in the spirit of the holidays!

The Scaglione Family - December 2010

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of photographing
my good friends, the Scagliones. 
I have know them for so many years and have taken so many candid photos of them over the years... 
But this was the first time that they hired me 
to do their family portraits.
It was a rainy day and we had to wait under the umbrellas 
for a little while before mother nature finally cooperated. 
Here are a few of my favorites:

It was so much fun to photograph this family... I am sure you will see more of them on this Blog in the future. In the meantime, you can see more from this session at:
