So the holidays are over and even I – one of the worst abusers of leaving Christmas decorations up (the lights on my back porch are called “bistro lights” february thru november) – have already removed all evidence of Christmas decor from my home, but I have to share Christmas card I did for the Jones Family. This has got to be my absolute favorite shot from 2011!! I knew the Jones’ were just the right people to pull this off with me and they hit it out of the park. Lindsay hit up the thrift store for the family’s wardrobe, I found the leg lamp at achristmasstoryhouse.com (it even came in a box marked “fragile” and had the option of shipping in a large wooden crate like in the movie for an additional cost), and it just so happens that Mark had a red rider bb gun up in the attic. Everyone had a blast during the shoot…we shot at Mark’s mom’s house over Thanksgiving break, so we had our own “live studio audience” cheering on the Jones’ during the shoot. It was great!
If you’re interested in doing your own A Christmas Story-themed portrait session for next year’s holiday cards, hit me up! The leg lamp needs some more miles on it!!:) So Merry belated-Christmas and Happy New Year!
