The Kropp Family - Christmas Card and Portrait Session

Lori first contacted me back in September because she had a specific idea in mind for her daughter's first christmas card.  No problem, I can make it happen!  We planned the shoot for November so I would have a week to get everything edited and she would have plenty of time to get her cards printed.  Oh babies and their faces, everything is so new and exciting.  And the hat that Lori found on Etsy is just too adorable.

We tried a couple of other christmas setups but she was most comfortable peeking out over my beanbag chair setup.  I do love the shot with her in the gift box.

After we got the christmas shots done, we had time for some family portraits.  We did some in the studio and then headed out behind the studio for an outdoor look.  Don't be fooled, the area behind the our studio is not this pretty, good old photoshop helped me out with that. I just needed that grassy knoll to get me started.

Can't wait to shoot this happy family again!
