making winter our friend

With the winter storm I had some unexpected time off and was finally able to photograph our kids.

After our electricity resumed, the excitement and adventure of the power outage had faded, the driveway plowed (& plow fixed,) trees freed from the snow that weighed them down, photos of the damage taken, snow angels made, and a few naps taken we headed out for some photos-finally—the kids birthdays were only in September! But, better late than never!

My sister, who also hasn’t taken time to get her engagement photos also took advantage of the snow.

Grace, who I have photographed every season of the year made it in for her first snow portraits.

Get your photos done early this year and don’t stress about it during the busy fall and holiday season.

Here is our front yard winter wonderland.

Here is one of my favorite trees, thankfully after knocking the snow off of it’s branches it has somewhat “bounced back.” I am hoping for a full recovery!

Our “plow” died right in the middle of the lane, here is Jim holding the broken part. Our efforts to get to electricity were made a bit more difficult by this road block. lol
