We may be halfway into 2021, but that doesn't mean we have to stop looking at Christmas photos right?

At the end of last year I had the fortune of taking these fun Christmas photos for a wonderful family that is near and dear to my heart. I've known Shaunte for two decades: shortly after she and my sister worked together at a day camp, her younger brother and I worked together at the same day camp. Her brother is now my oldest friend, and we used to take Shaunte's boys trick or treating when they were little.

Now the boys are taller than me (well, who isn't!) and since I don't see them as often now, it was such a treat to be able to get to know their personalities as they grow into sharp, kind, charismatic young adults. And so handsome too! Shaunte's man Ray is a hoot and I definitely laughed so hard at this shoot I nearly cried, several times. This crew is such a blast and I can't wait to shoot with them again. And who can resist a Santa suit?!

PS, Stay tuned for an album of just Shaunte and Ray. Their love is so sweet that it deserved its own post!
