merry & bright / by Ashley Brown

(Before I share, thank you SO much for all of the support, well wishes and prayers about the upcoming arrival of Greta! It's looking like she'll be joining us on Monday, so stay tuned for pictures. We'll probably be NICU bound for a bit but that certainly won't stop her from being a VERY well photographed girl!) It's so hard to believe that Christmas is only a week away! The holiday-esque sessions we do every year in December are some of my favorites.

Zach is one of our "regulars" and I must admit, I am very partial to this little guy! He is always happy and ready to ham it up. Plus, his parents are some of the kindest people I've ever met, so he is one lucky man.



Mallory and Gavin's mom is super stylish and that always reflects in her sessions. This is a great example of dressing for portraits.



LOVE Ava's contemporary house... this place is so much fun to shoot in! And this girl, let me tell you, can work the camera. I think Kristen was a bit surprised at how much she posed herself. Hey, no complaints when it makes our job super easy!



On a side note, we've been having a blast buying neat things for the loft (see below)... our chairs, pillows, blankets and rug arrived (all white) and we're waiting on some fabulous wooden toys. Don't forget that we're currently booking sessions there from January-March, and weekend dates are filling very quickly, so don't hesitate to snap up the chance for a shoot in this super cool venue!
