It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, indeed! And yet it still feels like there’s plenty of time to do everything that needs doing before Christmas, but I’m actually fooling myself! I’m sure there are quite a few out there who identify with me – trying to get last bits of work and projects completed before I can well and truly say I’m on holiday! I won’t know myself! I have two weeks off from classes at gym! Goodness. I’ll have to pop into the studio at gym to smash out some sessions and to work off the holiday “cheer” hahaha

Work has drawn to a close. I’ve completed my last order for the year with the lovely Bartletts. Their little one is due any day now, which is so exciting! I made sure that my mobile number is on their list of people to text with the news once baby is born! =) One of the items they ordered was a 16×20″ collage of images from their session:

Simply stunning. I can’t wait to show you what the real mounted storyboard looks like when it arrives!

In the meantime, I’ve been doing numerous shoots with my boys to get the perfect Xmas photo for our family card this year. Gosh, it’s been years and years since we did a proper family photo with all of us. Honestly, it’s just too hard to do it seems! And my attempts last month with the camera timer didn’t work out too well! Anyway, here’s the one we sent to family and friends:

And the one I used for my Facebook profile picture:

And just because I can, here are some from that mini shoot: (Poor Mattie-Moo-Moo – I’d poked him in the eye accidentally just before, so his eyes were all red and teary from the assault =| )

I have one more mini-shoot left this year before I’m officially on holiday (stay tuned for sneak peeks from that session). Until then, stay safe. =) ~ Gill
