This morning as I sit on our couch listening to classic Christmas tunes and watching our dogs play with their new treats, I can’t help but be overcome by so much gratitude for this life. It really is true what they say. The older you get, the more you just want to be surrounded by people and love on Christmas. The need for material things kind of diminishes. The nostalgia of these Christmas classic songs makes me smile and really brings me back to those moments when I was a kid. The smell of homemade bread in the morning. The sound of The Christmas Story playing in the background. And while I can’t be with my family on this day, I am so grateful for the little family I have made here in St. Pete. My boyfriend and our two pups give me so much joy! And amongst all this joy and gratitude I feel on this day, it can’t go without saying that being able to do what I love, and serve others who are so madly in love, is one of the most joyous feelings!
And I could not let this joyous day go by without blogging about this sweet family! I have been blessed to know Morgan and Morgan for a few years now and each year their family gets cuter and cuter. This year I have had the pleasure of seeing baby Adelle through their gender reveal, maternity session, and now her newborn session.
It’s amazing to watch a family grow and it becomes even better when you get to hold the new addition. Baby fever anyone? Adelle is such a sweet girl and I feel so honored to photograph some of her very first moments in this world. What a beautiful little Christmas gift she is.
