joyeux noël

today was great. despite waking up at 8:30. i received some really great things from 'st nick' .. i will take photos of those later rather than explain them. deal? i hope everyone else had a wonderful christmas. i want to hear what everyone got.

but, yesterday on christmas eve i went over to my neighbors house to take photos of their family. joe & liz have two children who are now grown ups with their own children. jeff & his wife have a blonde haired, blue eyed boy named cody who is so funny to watch.. and julie & her husband have a dark haired, dark eyed boy named danny who is also really funny to watch. i took photos of the kids unwrapping presents and just cruisin around. it was really fun. so after about 2 hours it was time for me to go home for dinner and liz gave me a platter of goodies to take home (she is an amazing baker.. i can't even begin to explain) and when i got home i noticed a note to me..
i opened it.. and realized i had just done my very first PAID photoshoot! where I was the photographer! it was such an awesome feeling. getting paid for something you love doing is really quite a whole new story of life that i don't think many people get to experience. anyway.. here are just a few photos as a preview.. tell me what you think!

Well done your photos are beautiful, I especially love the ones of the kids faces in the foreground with the background slightly out of focus!
