Back when Luna was about 8 months old and we were about to celebrate her first Christmas we started a silly Santa photo tradition where we all dressed in black and frowned next to Santa. It was hilarious, but nowadays neither Luna or Aurora are really interested in sitting on some strangers lap, and it's very likely that Aurora will do a runner through the mall if we even try. So this year we decided to enlist my mother's talents to create some family/holiday/we-are-now-5 photos. I don't know how all those families manage to get their kids to stand still and smile into the camera dreamily for their photos, but I am severely lacking in that skill... Mind you I much prefer a more edgier touch to photos than the general "soft" style, so I knew my mother would understand my vision without me really having to explain it!
The photos are gorgeous, and are a very much a representation of us... If you want to check out the entire gallery you can find it HERE, and I have posted my favourites below. If you are interested in your own session you can contact Alison Toon through her website, wherever you are in the world seeing as she may just be near you on her travels.
Who knows, we may still end up getting Santa photos done, but I really am going to cherish this collection forever. Thanks Mum!
