Watkins Family Christmas

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting family Christmas photos for my cousin Kari and her family. Grant and Kari's son, Grey, is such a fun little boy and he was a joy to photograph! He absolutely loved the camera. (And all the equipment that goes with it... He was curious about how everything worked.)

I especially love that we were able to take these family portraits in their home. It adds an extra personal touch on the whole experience. 

What a beautiful family!
If only I had an audio clip from this moment, you'd hear Grey saying, "Cheeeeeeeeeeessse!"

There was a short moment when Grey didn't quite want to cooperate... So daddy had to set him straight and remind him that misbehaving means no candy!

Grey decided he didn't want to risk getting his candy privileges taken away... So he smiled!

We went out to search for a spot to shoot some pictures outside. Ran out of time to set up any shots, but I was able to catch a few priceless candid shots as we walked through their yard.

Oddly enough, this is not the first time I've caught Grey on camera playing with sticks. Last Thanksgiving I followed him around the yard and saw a similar scene, pictured in this post
