Carnival!

I got really lucky when my friend Beth (Beth V Photography) ended up with an opening in her family portrait schedule in November. Homegirl (me) is such a procrastinator that I would never have thought to book a Christmas photo session as early as I would've needed to. Beth offered us the spot if we wanted it and YES! We did! She suggested we do the session at a local carnival and while I fought her at first (because I didn't want to take pictures in front of hordes of people), I'm so glad I listened to her. The colors in the background are so much fun. The evening was windy, the kids were squirrely and distracted, and I didn't think she would be able to get anything usable. But Beth is a pro and I was really pleased with how they turned out. Thanks, Beth!

Oh, how darling! I would have been wary about family pics at a carnival, too, but I think they turned out splendid! Your talented photographer has great vision. Of course, it helps to have such purdy {and handsome} subjects. :)
