  • The Walkers cutting down a tree! {Bellingham Family Photographer}

    Saturday, December 20 | Comments

    A few days before we left for California in November I was brushing my teeth and thinking about how excited I am to get our Christmas tree next month. It’s one of my favorite days of the year. We go out, search in the freezing cold for the perfect tree and cut it down with an old saw, strap it to the car and hope it stays up there until we get home. Then we carry it in, pine needles flying everywhere throughout the house and we get it as straight as we can and we decorate, decorate, decorate all day! Christmas music, hot chocolate, jammies… it’s the best.

    So I thought to myself “that would be the coolest family shoot, I would love to document that for someone and go into their home for this awesome day!” The first family that popped into my mind was these lovely people, the Walkers. Nate is the pastor of our church and we’ve known them for 5 or 6 years now, Shannon is one of my closest friends. I’ve shot them before so I was excited to call her and talk about doing it again. It was so fun to shoot! They picked me up and I sat in the back with their 5 awesome kids who fawned over my family’s Christmas card the entire way. It was the loudest car ride of my life. At one point I had to crack up because the kids were all kinds of loud {because they’re kids} and the Christmas music was blaring. Yet Nate and Shannon were attempting to carry on a conversation with me through it all, it was so funny. I was with them all afternoon and into the evening and just followed them around like fly on the wall. We did exactly what my family does, we drank hot chocolate and ate popcorn, decorated and hung out in jammies. So glad I got to document it for them!
