So the powers that be, who invented the whole modern calendar thing, really had it down. After the crazy, gluttonous, excitement of the holidays all we mentally and physically want is a refresh. I am ready to just strip the house bare of Christmas decorations, clean up all the clutter and start bare. I especially feel the need this year. After a summer of being displaced due to home renovations, a fall of living with every workman under the sun in and out of our house and a Christmas spend with multiple visits to the doctor (for all of us) including one trip to the ER (stitches for the little one) and a case of pneumonia (again, for the little one), I am looking forward to a quiet and focused New Year. Thankfully we are currently spending a week with my family in Sea Island, GA which is offering us some much needed rest and relaxation and helping us all to get healthy.
I think the calm ocean waters this morning are a sign of things for 2014.
Of course I wouldn’t be me with out a few goals and plans for 2014, but let start small.

Late last night, as I was perusing my Pintrest boards, I caught sight of a fabulous photograph of a child. We are not talking the Christmas card family photography with which we are all familiar, but a cool, editorial style fashion image. It lead me to my new obsession…the blog Smudgetikka. The site is penned by Linda McLean, fashion director at Junior Magazine, a UK based publication. She blogs about her job, location scouting and all the great editorials she sees for children’s fashion. (What is it about Europeans and great children’s clothing?!?! No cartoon characters and silly princess crap, just darling, age appropriate clothes.)
This now has my mind churning with ideas for a children’s fashion shoot. I adore working with my fashion clients and would love to bring that look to a children’s shoot.
Here are some editorials pulled from Smudgetikka blog.
And the princess in armor of this one by Emma Tunbridg.
I love all of them so much! Now excuse my while I go dress up my daughter in a Celtic warrior suit of arms and go photograph her by the water on a cloudy blustery day.

After the last post I’ve received quite a few questions about Christmas and holiday card photo session pricing and availability.

We have been having beautiful fall this year in New England and all the homes in Beacon Hill are preparing their window boxes for Halloween and Thanksgiving. They really go all out.
The months between Halloween and New Year’s seem to just fly by with all the fun and festivities. I have already been busy photographing families and children for upcoming holiday cards. This was a particularly cute session one warm fall afternoon.
