As most of you know, we are fairly new to blogging so I should not be surprised that I fell behind a bit in the past month. It started almost 4 weeks ago when I started getting phone calls from panic-stricken brides who forgot to order their parent’s albums. I may have fallen behind on posting to the blog, but the good news is that I got everything done in time and uploaded. There will be some very happy parents on Christmas morning.
THEN Thanksgiving was here and we had my Canadian friends visiting, so I was able to forget my backlog of images for another week. Bill loves to play tour guide so we hit all the hot spots – The Stockyards, Sundance Square, The grassy knoll, black Friday sales – you know the drill. We also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to watch my hometown Edmonton Oilers play the Dallas Stars on Sunday. We had fantastic seats, but I am still sad that my Oilers lost 🙁 At least Edmonton evened it out be beating Dallas last night
Soooooo… to get back to my original point, I am going to start my blog catch-up with a family session we did a month ago at the Texas Renaissance Festival near Houston. The Switzer family owns the Fredericksburg Winery and we are lucky enough to be good friends with them. If you have not tried their Christmas Wine, it is a MUST! We love photographing Jene, Sandra and Chardonnay (yes – like the wine) because they are fun and relaxed and open to almost anything. Jene also has the distinction of being our longest-standing client as this was Bill’s 23rd year to photograph him. I continue to be amazed by our constantly growing network of clients-turned-friends!
I’ll start with the traditional shot for Oma (also referred to around the winery as their “antique bottle labeler”)
