Christmas with The Crandalls, Keith + Alicia + Roselyn + Rowan {A Day In The Life} / by Jessica Bordner

I love the holidays, and by love I mean, I am listening to Christmas music as soon as I even hear the word Thanksgiving. I also love photographing families during the holiday time.

Here is one of my favorite families, and they happen to be best friends with my hubby and I. I have photographed their Holiday photos over the years but this year we decided to do something different. A day in the life.... Holiday Style...

I love these types of sessions for many reasons but my favorite is the memory of a session like this. I want families to look back on their photos in 20 years and not only see a cute posed shot they got all dressed up for but to see a day in the life of their family tradition of getting the house ready for Christmas. I want their kids, kids to look back and be able to see what life was like for their parents. As of photographer, our main job is not only to make art but to preserve days just like this.

I hope you enjoy this one... It's definitely one of my FAVORITES!

First up..........Game Time and Christmas Tree Decorating! Wooza isn't their tree AMAZING...

Operation Decorating was complete and next up was my favorite part of the day.... Cookie Time! 

Oh how I love this family! And I cannot forget their dog Moose, aka their own personal reindeer.....

Of course I had to take a little time for a fun family session, aren't they the cutest family? All these images were taken in their new home and new neighborhood, which is beautiful!

I am so thankful I got to photograph this awesome day in the life of the Crandalls. I hope you guys love the images and that this day preserves your family holiday traditions and your new home memories for a lifetime!
