A fun session I did a couple months ago was for my sweet friend Mindy. Mindy is the grandmother of this little joy, Kenzie! I hadn't taken pictures of Kenzlie since she was a brand new baby. I was thrilled to have her back in my home for another session.
Mindy had kept her daughter's dress and blanket for 20+ years and had the idea to use them in pictures with Kenzlie. Mindy and I were texting and I started joking that we should set up a Christmas tree. Kenzlie would out grow the dress before Christmas time so there would be no other option to perfectly match the picture unless we set up a tree in the summer! I thought about how simple it actually would be for me since I have a fake tree and a fake fire place.
We then realized Kenzlie had a dog really similar to the one her mom had as well. Oh my goodness, I also had a grey rug. Now it was just too perfect!
To prepare for the session, Dawson and I put on Christmas pajamas and decorated half of the Christmas tree. We literally only set up half of the fake tree! It was really exciting for Dawson and got him excited for Christmas. Every time I called it a "tree," he corrected me and said, "no, silly mom, it's a Christmas tree!"
There was no complaining at our house about this event; Kenzlie clearly didn't mind getting dressed up for the occasion either.
