A Snowy Christmas Session | Fredericksburg Virginia Photographer

One day while down in my Nan's basement I came across the old sled we use to use.  I knew right away that I wanted to some how incorporate it in my kids Christmas session.  I brought it home and it sat sadly on my front porch awaiting it's moment.

December came and I STILL hadn't been able to do their session.  The rain, oh the rain, it just wouldn't stop.  Then my kids got sick and then, as luck would have it, we got MORE rain.  I was in the midst of preparing for my upcoming wedding and hadn't even thought to get the kids Christmas outfits. It was seeming as if this session was NEVER going to happen.  If it didn't, what in the world would I put on our Christmas card.  Being a photographer I wasn't quite sure I could get away with using last years pictures :/

So one day after picking Ava up for school I noticed our yard wasn't a pond and the sun was actually peaking out as it lowered below the clouds to set.  I begged, pleaded, and bribed my kids to let me please, please, pretty please take their pictures.  Armed with two bags of fake snow and the promise of hot chocolate with whipped cream they agreed to slip into their Christmas outfits from the year before and play along.

Ava's dress luckily fit like a dream, although I hadn't considered that she had long since outgrew the shoes.  So she put on the dress, her coat, and her boots...which really were pretty cute with it.  Poor Hayden has done a lot of growing and his shirt and pants were a bit small.  He still looked as cute as a button to me though :)  I had to let him wear his gray oxfords I had bought for the wedding and I prayed he didn't destroy them.

It was a bit windy and cold but they did AWESOME!!!  I got our Christmas card photo!!!  It was like a dream.
