This is the fifth year I have gone to Mary's home to photograph her family around the holidays! It almost didn't happen this year as David, her husband, was gone over Thanksgiving, our traditional time to take pictures. So when her family was all together this past Saturday to celebrate Christmas I finally had my chance. We managed to spend a few moments outdoors too as it was sunny & calm. We always take pictures by the evergreen in the corner that blocks the setting sun. I think this is the first year there's been snow in the pictures!
