The Beilstein’s invited me out to their beautiful home to photograph their family and two intelligent and talented children, for their Christmas card. With so many choices of a colorful holiday backdrop it was tough to choose. We decided to use both the smaller snow white and extra large winter green Christmas trees. Photographing the kids playing chess in front of the tree and holding their Pugs named after their favorite Harry Potter character were some of my favorites. Christopher and Grace were captured performing some of their treasured activities. Everyone was in his or her own comfortable environment and has forever encapsulated the warm holiday feeling of their home to share with other in this family portrait session.
