One of the women from my small group honored me by asking me to take pictures of her and her son for their Christmas cards.  She picked a park that I had never been to, but I will definitely go back.  The location was breathtaking.

But, it was also freezing.

So, we did the entire photoshoot in about 20 minutes.  It was like the swimsuit models who have to take their coats off for 2.5 seconds while the shoot happens, then bundle back up to avoid being frostbitten in all of the wrong areas.

Okay it wasn’t like that, but it was cold.

Here’s a couple we were able to catch:



I was also able to snag some new filters for Photoshop, so I had fun playing around with her pics… not really Christmas card material, but it was neat to have some fresh photos to work with.  The bleach filter was one of my faves:


Erin, I hope you love the pictures as much as I loved taking them.


Merry Christmas, from our family to yours!
