(Inside: Mom photography is so much fun. I love capturing the at-home moments, including decorating cookies for the holidays.)
Conversations while decorating cookies…
9-year-old: I might get a Godzilla from Santa.
Me: You think?
9-year-old: Yeah, because what I know about Santa is that he knows what kids want, and he knows if they are on the good list or the bad list.
Me: Which list do you think you’re on?
9-year-old: Probably the one I’m on every year…the good list. This year was a pretty good year…but last year, I think me and my brothers barely made it.
The holiday traditions can be so beautiful. Of course, none of it is perfect, but I love capturing the things my kids say, and their images on my camera.
Here’s my mom photography. I hope these photos give you ideas as you capture your own lovely family.
