I have started a tradition with my neighbor (who also happens to be my BFF), where I borrow her kids one afternoon after school. We take sibling photos, I feed them junk food..and then I return them with a sugar high. These two are so adorable, and are always a blast to hang out with.
This year, I wanted to try something different. I hauled the portable battery to the park with me, and we plugged in some Christmas globe lights in the middle of the woods. I just love the magic that the lights bring! I use a Paul Buff Vagabond battery pack, which is pretty small, light weight, and easy to use. I charged it up before our session, plugged the lights in once we got to our location, and the lights were perfection! These images were taken around 3pm in the Pacific Northwest.
I love comparing how much these kiddos have grown each year, and I hope our tradition continues until they are all grown up!
My studio is in Mill Creek, but I love photographing families both in studio and at some of our local gorgeous parks!
